Hello everyone, my first post here. I am an aspiring programming student starting out on my coding journey, absolute beginner so go easy on me. So I just got this brand new HP envy, like a month ago and downloaded JDK 8U341 but when I try to install it I keep getting this error after the step where the wizard asks about 'destination folder' and I click 'next' and boom the error dialog box shows up. I had no problem downloading and installing this on my older laptop but no luck with my new pc. Anyone has any clues what is going on?

    UPDATE: So I was able to resolve the issue based on suggestions I saw on this site with similar problems and it does work. All I had to do was create another user account as an administrator then log in with that account and download and install. No clue why this works but it did for me. Thank you for those who posted this solution!!!
