I've had a problem for a while now with my Vista Ultimate 32bit. It is the Upgrade version. A few months ago I had to do a reinstall, so I had to install vista, then reinstall it to register with my key.
Since this time, I don't have full admin privilidges (yes, I understand no one really does with Vista, but this is different
). I had a problem where my recovery software wouldn't see the drives. The vendor's support team figured out that for some reason, my account isn't working correctly and I had to do "Run as Administrator" to get the software to see my drives.
Now I am trying to get another application to work and it "stops working" every time I run it. No online solution was found. If I "Run as Administrator", the program works fine. It is a file utility (NameWiz 4.11) and it has a context menu, and that is really what I need working.
Any ideas how I can actually run as an administrator?
A while ago, I did try creating another account and then removing my account's administrator's priviledges and then readding them and that did not help.
Thanks for any help!
