Are you trying to run an install from a CD?

If so -
1. Verify you have all updates installed.
2. clean the cd
3. right clicked on the install file and choose run as, then uncheck 'protect my computer and data from unauthorized activity'.

hope this helps

Program was not on a CD, but a download version. OS is up to date.
Unchecking 'protect my computer ...' did allow me to successfully run an uninstall of the setup program, which removed the offending error message. I was then able to do a successful install.
Thank you very much! You have saved the day!

Problem was resolved using previous reply, but the Install Shield site did have the explanation of the error. Thanks.
