When I try to install software downloaded from the internet, such as antivirus or microsoft office, I am told that the "folder is not writable". Help would be much appreciated.

What " folder " are you talking about ?
Do you have permission to write to that " folder " ( right click on the folder / Get Info and at the bottom of that small window are your permissions )
Post a print screen if you are in doubt.
