    Error Opening File for Writing

    Hey guys,
    I just joined the forums and would really appreciate any help or insight. I went to install my TeamSpeak 3 client for Windows. Right after going through the terms and service then beginning to install it, I received a message saying "Error opening file for writing: C:\Program Files (x86)\TeamSpeak 3 Client\update.exe" Whether I abort, ignore, or retry in response to this message, I still cannot download it any further.
    P.S. - I'm not very good with technical things like this so please try to make it sound as simple as possible. Thanks
