Will I have any problems getting logged in if I do this? m 0 l digitalprospecter April 22, 2010 6:43:00 PM Hello Seinfield fan, It is necessary to log on as Administrator to remove a game on Vista to prove you have the right to do so. If your user profile is set as an administrator, then you wouldn't be told to do so. This keeps unauthorized users from making changes that they shouldn't.
