Default cant reinstall crysis 2??

hey everyone i recently uninstalled crysis 2 and the ea download manager cause i wasnt playing that much.
when i heard they are releasing a dx 11 patch i tried to install it and the game and ea download manager install. When it connects to update the patch to 1.8 i get the following error..

"cannot delete target files"

Judging by your description of the problem, I would assume you have the game already installed, and only have problems patching it? If so, make sure you're running the game in administrator mode. The problems may be caused by the installer not having the required permissions to modify the files.
