Can't install flash player in win 2000 pro

By e_canaan ·
I have a user on for whom I'm trying to install flash player for his browser. The installation halts with the following message:

"You do not have access to make the required system configuration modification. Please rerun the installation from an administrators account"

The user has admin privileges. And even when I try it logged in as "administrator" I get the same message.

I tried a recommendation that I found on the web, where I modified the permission for 2 registry keys('HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software' and 'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID'), but it didn't make a difference.

I would appreciate any help

Recreate user accounts

Try deleting the user's account and recreating it with admin rights. Make sure to delete any user accounts that are not needed, if there are any. Restart windows and try again. Another idea is checking the local disk's security settings (right-click the local disks icon and select properties.) Make sure that "Everyone" is in the list and that they have "Modify" selected.
