Are you installing this from an account with Administrator privileges?
I tried both user and admin. No joy.
An intersting thing to note. I tried to restore to a restore point previous to the install without success. I have Norton 2010 installed and active-could that be a problem?

It looks like there was some sort of registry corruption (permissions), which got undone with the System Restore.
Is Norton to blame? Very likely...
Sorry, I misread your post. So the problem continues?
I found several ways to repair this UNKNOWN registry problem, using Google search. But all seem quite complex; manual registry searching and modifying.
I do not usually believe in "registy cleaning", but maybe this is a case where a more or less safe registry cleaner could be tried? Try CCleaner, but be sure to take a full registry backup before running the registry cleaning portion. (ERUNT is an easy-to-use registry backup tool.)

I tried the CCCcleaner and the other fix...
I think a fresh install of Windows 7 is looking better and better...
Or getting rid of Norton? Not sure if this will fix your problem, but this is the first thing I would try in your situation.
A re-installation of your operating system might solve your problem.
