I built a new pc(, tell me if u need specs) and (64- bit) system says I'm the administrator but i can't make any changes to windows firewall, i can't activate or disable norton internet security and i can't change my account back to a regular one. Also (this hasn't got to do with the admin thing) 4 driver updates: Realtek High Definition Audio Driver, Intel Rapid Storage Technology, Intel Management Engine Interface and Intel USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller Driver can't be installed. neither can i play bf3 i still need to test other games because punkbuster can't be installed (also not manually) and every loud sound becomes a loud prrrrrrrrrrr. I'm completely depressed pls help

Incomplete Installation (55)
This issue can also occur on computers with Avast installed. You will need to configure Avast to ignore Steam itself and all Steam game files. Some users have had to uninstall Avast to resolve the issue.
This may also indicate a Steam Service failure. Please try enabling the Steam Service:
Exit Steam.
Click Start > Run (Windows Key + R)
Type the following command:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\bin\Steamservice.exe /Install

(If you have installed Steam to another path, please replace C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam with the correct path.)

This command requires administrator privileges and may take a few minutes.
Launch Steam and test the issue again.
McAfee Security Scan is also known to create this error for Left 4 Dead 2.

this is what steam tells me to do but nothing changes

origin tells me too look for the punkbusterA file but it isnt there.

Restart the computer and tap the Function 8 key and when you see the Advanced Boot menu, select Safe Mode with Command Prompt. At the prompt type:-
net user Administrator active:yes
then press Enter.

Restart and go into Safe Mode again and you should see the system Administrator account on the login screen beside your own. Login to that one and see if you can accomplish the necessary. While you're about it, elevate your own account to that of an administrative level.

by the way my screen has hdmi dvi and vga sockets but only the vga works and it even only works when i pull it by attaching it to a lamp or something like that it's always been like that but ill have a new monitor in 2 days so thats not really important but im guessing that the brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp is due to bad quality monitor and not the driver i cant install

Hi, I just read the PM you send me.
When you did something wrong at the beginning, then it is hard to fix it later just like your case, because you fix one problem then maybe other one will show up. I think you can try one more time to do win7 repaire method to see you can fix those problem or not.

If you can't, then you are better to re-install the OS just do it right.

That means you are better to re-install the win7 following the link.
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/operatingsystems/ss/windows-7-clean-install-part-1_15.htm

After done the installation, just update the windows update, install the drivers like: Realtek High Definition Audio Driver, Intel USB 3.0, intel chipset driver, GPU driver, LAN driver, (you don't need the Intel Management Engine Interface) anti virus software, printer driver and other device driver if you have the those, and the Steam or origin software.

I use Symantec Endpoint Protection and Microsoft Security Essentials, and I don't have any problem to install the steam software. But I don't use the either McAfee Security or Avast.
