Trouble installing .MSI files

The other day I tried installing Hamachi which comes as an msi installer, it kept giving me errors about dll's missing and that it couldn't install.
(I later managed to install via an alternative installer)

Today I'm trying to install Python, which also happens to come with an msi installer.
It gives me the same dll error.

"There is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor."

I've tried looking around different forums at different solutions but not found one so far that solves the problem for me.

Any help is much appreciated.

Well I found a work-around.
Created a new admin account and installed it, which worked perfectly but I'd still like to be able to install .msi files using my main admin account.
