Try this method: 5 Ways to Run Programs as Administrator in Windows 7 & Windows 8 (scroll down to the 'How to Always Run a Program with Administrator Permissions' section)
Quote:
First, find the program you want to run and its shortcut or main executable. Then, right click on it (or press and hold) to view the right-click menu. Click or tap Properties. In the Properties window, go to the Compatibility tab. At the bottom, check the box that says "Run this program as administrator" and click or tap OK.

Sounds like your antimalware/antivirus program is quarantining the d/l file because it sees something that appears to be malware like a cracking program or similar.

To add to what Wrench is saying, many times when you download a file, it ends up in a Temp file, and you cannot install a program to the Temp file. So instead of running the program, Save it to your Desktop and then run it.
