Yes!!! I feel your pain.. I went through this same problem installing AOHell on a customers laptop. For some reason the upgrade can set the switch in your user security settings and blank out the allowed users to install software. Here is how to fix it:

(I am assuming W2K)

run gpedit.msc from the run line

Expand Computer Configuration - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - User Rights Assignment

The line "Load and Unload Device Drivers" will probably have no users associated with it. You need to add the administrator (or whatever login you use) to this line.

Check these other lines as well:
"Take Ownership of files and Other Objects"
"Modify Firmware Environment Variables"


After you make these chnages, reboot and you should be good to go!
