I upgraded my PC with an SSD. Using it for operating system and programs only, all other data goes to old typical HDD. I’m encountering a problem since I installed SSD.

The problem is that when I run a setup file in order to install a program/software, something terminates the setup in the beginning and refuses to install. But when I right click on same setup file and click on ‘Run as Administrator’ then installation goes fine. It happen for all programs no exception. This behavior is not that annoying but when it comes to auto updates then it becomes a pain. For example when Firefox or Skype has an auto update to install on my machine a message appears giving me two options, update or cancel. When click on update button, nothing happens. Whenever I need to update a program I have to download it manually and run the setup file as administrator in order to update or install the program. Any help?

System Info:
Processor: i7 870 2.9 GHz
Board: Gigabyte P55-USB3
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3k 240GB (SH103S3/240G)
HDD: WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR GREEN 1TB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Security: AVG Free

Note: I’m not expert but have little know-how
