Logon as Administrator, add yourself to the Administrators group 
logon as yourself, install twisted. Then remove yourself from
the Administrators group.

This should let you install, but wether it leaves twisted in a

Also AIUI twisted have a mailing list of there own, the link

is on there home page:
