Administrator problems

Last response: in Windows Vista
September 6, 2008 11:24:32 PM

I just got a new laptop with vista. My first time with it and so far not too much problems.

However, when I want to run certain programs it keeps telling me that I need to have administration privileges when my account is already an admin. It's ok for most programs since I can just right click and run it as admin, but for somethings I can't right click therefore can't run as admin. For example the immunize for my spybot requires admin rights and I can't right click that.

How should i bypass this without using the secret admin account?

I had similar problem but I uninstalled and then re-ran the setup exe, this time by running as administrator from the right click menu, and I got no error messages about elevating permissions.
