Hi
I am trying to run a disk on my laptop, i am the only user and therefore by default the administrator! (surely)- however, when trying to run it says i need administrator rights!

any ideas?
thanks

Go into Control Panel > User Accounts (or similar depending on OS) & check to see if your account is an 'administrator' one. If not, you can change account type there.

Which OS are you using? G
