I have a problem on my computer, I can't delete or install something on it while I am using an Administrator user. What can I do?

Are there any programs that can forbid file deletion and saving? I want to install other programs and delete unwanted files and folders.
How can I solve this problem?

Usually when you encounter errors like these, it's best to create another username because it seems there are some problems with the registry keys. Make sure you use a local Administrator account before creating another one. After the process is complete, you can delete the one which is causing trouble.
