alright when i try to run some programs to install it keeps popping up this password window asking me to login as admin when i already am on the admin account, my account and the only one even on the computer... and second is there anything i can do besides lowering the graphic resources to lower cpu load? i noticed a large increase in cpu load from xp to win7 just wondering if i can lower that... im also on a fresh copy/reformatted OS so i shouldnt be getting any real lag
You may not have the default account setup as an admin (yes, it is possible that the only user account is not an admin). Check that in the control panel settings. As for the CPU load, if you leave the graphics settings (Aero, etc) on, it should actually have lower load than with them off. How high are you seeing though? It should use almost nothing at idle. My eee (1.6GHz atom) averages between 1 and 3 percent CPU use at idle in win7 x86, and that's not exactly a powerful CPU.

Windows 7 has User Account Control turned on by default. With UAC your administrative account runs in non-administrative mode by default and you're prompted when you initiate an action which requires administrative privileges. You can control UAC settings through: Start -> Search, enter "User Account Control" and click the "User Account Control Settings" option.
You have some background program that utilize the CPU. Use the processes manager (sorry if it is not the right name, I have a different language version and I don't remember the name in english) to check for the active processes and how much cpu they utilize. When you find the process/es responsible either remove them from starting up at windows load (windows defender is your guy here or msconfig) or setup them in a way that they will not be active at any time (as for example remove real-time defence on anti-virus programs). If you need them to start-up and/or you don't want to setup them differently as how they behave now you will have to cope with the cpu load.
