As a matter of explanation, "administrator" is a user account, whereas
"administrators" is a user group. The red X indicates that the adminstrator
account is not currently active. It doesn't need to be, as any member of the
administrators group can perform the same function.
Try right clicking the setup icon for the program your are trying to
install, choose "run as administrator".
As to the Program Files directories, those are protected system files and
should not be deleted. Access to manipulating them requires a level of
elevation, even if you are using an administrator account.
