You might want to check the windows event log. I've seen permission denied on SP2 for Windows 2003, and Visual Studio 2008 SP1 after they altered the length of the certificate that it was signed with. Windows throws a weird error, and you get a permission denied, but the real error is hidden in the event log. Other errors I've seen related to it are things along the lines of policy permissions denying you to run the software.
Check out KB925336, and the download for the patches for it are linked there.
