I just downloaded the installer for Blender. When I tried to install Blender, everything worked, up until I received this error:
I don't have any previous versions of Blender installed. Any help?

I have solved this rather annoying issue. What I did was edit the Security settings for "SYSTEM." By default all options are set to "Deny," which is preventing the installer from editing the AppData folder. By allowing SYSTEM the "Modify" property, the installer can successfully complete the installation of Blender.
NB: It also happens to the Desktop folder too, same fix.
