    Administrator and can't install programs

    The Vista home a premium on my kid's computer, Dell system.

    I can't install any programs. It tells me i need administrator rights. I
    logged in as administrator "Matt" and it says it can't install anything --
    Even though it says I have administrator rights. What the heck!?

    I am extremely frustrated. There is no "Administrator" account anywhere.

    please help. This is so stinking frustrating.

    Try running the program by right- click and select 'run as administrator'...
    this will work
