Take protext.exe, which is the easy-to-use link to the most recent
version, in this case ProTeXt-2.2-071608.exe. The md5-files can be used
to check, if the download of the bigger .exe-files was correct.

Anyway, i don't think that the recent versions will solve your problems,
as i assume you'll suffer because of incorrect rights in the
home-directory-part of your file system. Whats making me curious is, if
you didn't run into these problems, by installing other software i.e.
Adobe Reader? Perhaps it may be a good idea to ask in a Windows-related
forum, how to fix this.
