Im not sure why but the admin account didn't have ownership of the program files File. this was causing a problem when installing the SQL Server 2008 R2. Here are the steps that ultimately fixed my issue:
1. Change UAC settings to NEVER NOTIFY
3. Take Ownership of the Program Files with the admin accoun: Right click Program File --> Properties --> Security Tab --> Advanced --> Owner TAB --> Edit --> Check "Replace owner on subcontainers & Objects"
6. Add Full control permission to the admin account to Program File
