"Access is Denied" on driver update

Advice anyone? I followed the instructions for updating my MK802 with the latest "firmware" that I downloaded from the Rikomagic website. Started Liveupdate (64-bit version), using paperclip pushed and held the internal button, and connected MK802 to my computer. The computer sees it, but when I attempt to manually install the driver it quickly responds with "Access is Denied." I am attaching an image of the message. I am using Windows 7, 64bit. Any suggestions?

Looks like you aren't logged in as an administrator on your PC.

I was getting the same error then I realized that the files and folders on my PC were encrypted (green colored) since I enabled drive compression. Solution is just right click on the usb driver folder and under general tab click advanced and uncheck encypt data checkbox. Now probably it will work.

I got this issue on a Windows 8 64bit pc. To resolve I went into Control Panel > Advanced Boot settings and booted up into the advanced boot options menu and disabled driver signing. Then once when booted up and pointing to the usbdriver folder when setting up the driver it worked first time and I was able to reflash my MK802 fine :)
