I've searched all over the internet to find a simple step by step instructions on how to install Sverchok properly into blender. I did visit the official add-on repo's frontpage and tried to install the add-on like any other add on. I m trying to figure out what went wrong. What step did i miss? I see the add-on in my list but can NOT enable it. I am using blender 2.78C. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There's nothing special about the installation of Sverchok. As suggested by the readme, it is installed like any add-on. If you can install other add-ons then you know how to install Sverchok.
You mention in your comment that you resolved the installation issue by logging into windows as an administrator. I suspect you'd have similar failures during the installation of other add-ons.
Further technical questions about Sverchok can be asked on our issue tracker.
