Have downloaded the newest version of Arduino and the two previous versions. Everytime I try to install the program just locks up my computer and turns the entire screen into a translucent blue. The only recourse is to use CTL ALT DEL to initiate Task Manager and cancel and I get my computer back. I have tried installing other software with no issues, and I have tried installing the Arduino software using the Run As Administrator Option with no success as well. Any ideas? Thank you.
Try the non-admin install from a zip. It just runs from a folder instead of being installed.
