can't start quake 4 demo

I am trying to play the quake 4 demo that I downloaded. I want to see how the demo works on my machine before I purchase the game. I downloaded the demo, letting the game install where it wanted to install (for lack of a better way to describe it). When I tried to play the game, I got the following message "found DLL in pak file: C:/Program Files (x86)/id Software/Quake 4 Demo/q4base/game000.pk4/gamex86.dll
copy gamex86.dll to C:/Program Files (x86)/id Software/Quake 4 Demo/q4base/gamex86.dll
could not create destination file
********************
ERROR: DLL extraction to fs_savepath failed

********************
Error during initialization
Shutting down OpenGL subsystem
...wglMakeCurrent( NULL, NULL ): success"

Can you help me figure this out?
I have Windows 7 64 bit, Nvidia 6150 se video chipset, 6 megs of RAM. My machine is 6 weeks old and appears to meet and surpass the requirements for Quake4.

Thanks

Hi,


•Ensure you are logging on to your machine with administrator access.


•Ensure you have sufficient space on the hard drive. If you have more than one drive or partition, try installing the game to a different drive or partition.
