Default Can't Install Apps Not From Play Store

I recently purchased a Nexus 10. I'm trying to install the Amazon App Store which is not in the Play Store, but instead is a file that I can download from Amazon. I've selected "Unknown Sources" option in the security settings and when I go to install the Amazon App Store App it gives me the option to install it, but it won't actually let me select the install button. I'm not rooted at all and running a totally stock version of Android 4.2.2 on my Nexus 10. Any ideas as to how I can get this app to install with out rooting my tablet?

I didn't have any problems installing it. Do you have any device administrators activated on your device which might block 3rd party apps?

I just checked and I don't have any device administrators turned on. Is it possible that it's a 4.2.2 issue?

It should allow you to install it. I'd either try re downloading the apk or factory reset.

So after rebooting a few times, it worked. So weird.

Do you have screen filter installed? I had the same issue,I couldn't click on install when screen filter was on. So just deactivate it and you can click on install again. No need to reboot.

After playing around a little, I discovered that it was the Screen Adjuster app that I had downloaded. As soon as I uninstalled the app, everything worked perfectly.
