    Permissions Problems
    If you experience permissions problems it is most likely that you have a [Standard User] account. Changing your account to an [Administrator] account will fix this problem.

    You can not change your [Standard User] account to an [Administrator] account while logged into your own account because, (you guessed it), you do not have permission.

    To change your [Standard User] account to an [Administrator] account: Log off your account, log on to an [administrator account], change your account to an [Administrator] account, and reboot the computer.

    If you are running Windows Vista:
  • Click the [Start] button
  • Locate and select [Switch User]
  • Log on to an [administrator account]
  • Click the [Start] button
  • Select [Settings]
  • Select [ Control Panel]
  • Select [User Accounts]
  • Select [Manage another account]
  • Find and select [your user account]
  • Select [Change the account type]
  • Change your account to [Administrator]
  • Select [Change Account Type]
  • Reboot the computer
