Administrator w/out Privileges
While trying to install a program it shuts down and gives me an error message
reading

"Please make sure you have local systen adminitator privileges on this
system. Canceling the installation."

Since I am the administrator and am working on the administrator (and only)
account on this computer I am unsure why I am not allowed to install new
software.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Ed

Hi Ed,

Try right clicking the installation program and click "Run as
administrator" to see if that will help.
