I am aware this is an issue with Vista OS users. Simply go to the area where you manage user accounts in control panel and uncleck/disable UAC which is a higher level of permissions than administrator. Sorry guys another annoying enhancement in Vista. That should resolve the issue about permissions in administrator account.
I had the same exact problem. For me, this solution worked:
Go to Control Panel
Click Administrative Tools
Find Apple Mobile Device in your list of services and highlight it.
Off to the left, there should be an option to Stop Service, otherwise, highlight the Apple Mobile Device line, right click, and then select stop.
I also did this same drill with Component Services which is located in the Administrative Tools folder.
I reinstalled itunes AGAIN. And the error message came up twice more, but the third time I hit retry, the installation completed and now everything works great.
I have had this same problem with iTunes for quite some time.
"Service ipod service(ipod service) could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to install system services"
This solution finally worked: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/09/04/739820.aspx
Note, this solution is a little "techy".
