You might have the "security option" too high...

Go into your security option section and bring the slider down so that is says "Medium High".
Hope this helps you.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

If this is Your Work Computer

You can't as the Work IT Department has set the computer this way and will retain control over it in their Group Policy Settings.

If it is your Personal Computer you need to lower the Security Settings but as you have said that you are unable to install any software it sounds like a Work Related Security Issue and you will need to get the IT Department to alter their Security Policy which is unlikely if it is just for 1 person.
