I have this sort of problem on an installation of XP SP3 on which I use Comodo FW (only) since a long time and at a moment appeared this problem :
often when I want to launch an installer setup I get a windows message saying that I have not the rights for that , though I am under an administrator account
and I must reboot windows to have this problem solved
This problem could be also caused by the security updates of windows ? or by the install of IE8 or by Comodo
The OS could need to be reinstalled, but I don’t believe it could be that the cause, because I restore the registry regularly at a previous point so that I consider this OS being really 1 week maximum old instead of his 2.5 years appearent
What you did: I double click on an executable file which is an installer setup
What actually happened or you actually saw: this operation does not run the installer. Instead there is an error message pop-up saying that
What you expected to happen or see: run the installer
How you tried to fix it & what happened: reboot windows and it is a solution but heavy
If its an application compatibility problem have you tried the application fixes?:
Details (exact version) of any application involved with download link: googleearthsetup version 22.214.171.124 for example but nearly all installer setups
Whether you can make the problem happen again, and if so exact steps to make it happen: yes it is possible at many times as I want if I re-do
Any other information (eg your guess regarding the cause, with reasons): problems with proative defense of Comodo, though it is disabled

I think I got a permanent problem of this kind after that, but far less ennoying.
The installer lauched, and only a part of them, not all, take much time to launch after the double click, as perhaps 3 minutes at the clock, an sometimes it is the same problem for some executable.
Then I let that in this state for 4 years dancing the salsa and other stuff ;D
I am with Comodo 5.10 and wish to continue with it, so I could try to test one of theses installers after desinstallation of Comodo but there is so many things to manage in a PC … that perhaps or not
