Dear Tony,

You need to have full access to install Photoshop CS5.

To set permissions on your system, please follow these steps:

1. Click Windows key and “r” to run the search bar,

2. Copy paste either of the text there:

For Windows 32-bit – Program FilesCommon FilesAdobeAdobe PCD or

For Windows 64-bit – Program Files(x86)Common FilesAdobeAdobe PCD,

3. Make administrators access control full,

4. Make system access control full.

5. Install Adobe Photoshop CS5 again.

It should be working.
