    I need Administrator rights, though I am Administrator


    This is the problem: I need to update my SanDisk U3 Launchpad, because it
    didn't work anymore. So it said I had to update it and I came to the
    following website
    http://u3.sandisk.com/download/lp_in...%201,%200,%202
    There I can click on a button named "install Launchpad". However, when I do
    so, a message appears which says that I must have administrator rights to run
    this application. But I am the only user of this computer, and thus I have
    administrator rights. I can only click 'Cancel' and I'm not able to finish
    the update.

    Hello,

    In Windows Vista, even though you are an administrator, only programs
    that ask for your permission ("Windows needs your permission to
    continue") are allowed to use your admin power.

    Since you are starting the installation inside of Internet Explorer,
    you will need to open an admin instance of IE (right-click it, click
    Run As Administrator), and then initiate the installation.
