Yes, it's telling you that you need administrator rights to install the software. It sounds like you may not have set yourself as an administrator on your own machine.

I do have admin rights and used it yesterday to change the System password and the Security password.

Again, the OS and installer are telling you that you don't have admin rights, and need admin rights to run the installer.

For most people, the installer just works. But you just replaced the hard drive and possibly reinstalled the OS. Something isn't right with your system or your user account on the system.

I used the admin rights yesterday to uninstall Power Chute.

When I click the Adobe Elements sunflower icon after loading the disc I then click the VISE Install Photoshop Elements and get a larger sunflower icon that says "continue" and when I click on it I get the spanish message I quoted in the original post. I'm not asked for a password so how would the program know if I do or don't have admin rights?
