    Right-click on the "Advanced SystemCare free" install file, and select "run as administrator"...

    folders like application data, documents and settings, and other hidden folders that i should have access too. and that was about the program.

    Go to Control Panel, Folder Options, select Show all folders, View, select Show hidden files, folders and drives...
