So for some reason it's not letting me install Quicktime on my laptop, which has Windows Vista Basic.. I get an error 2738.. I have no idea what to do to fix it, or if I can even get it on here.. Does anyone know if I can get Quicktime on here or not? I cant watch any kind of videos or anything without it, so this really sucks.. Please help..

Oh and I don't know a lot about computers, so I need everything in terms I can understand, if you can infact help me... Like a step by step.. lol..Thanks in advance!

You gave me such hope, but when I tried typing line 2 my computer told me it didn't understand.( I'm summarizing) Am I still doing something wrong? I do have administrator access. Thank you I really just want to use my new ipod nano.
