How to get Administrator priviliges

  ened 18:29 21 Nov 2007

I want so save a backup of Money to my External Hard Drive.

I am not allowed because I do not have the above!!

I turned of UAC and I am allowed, but you have to reboot and, childishly, with UAC turned off you have to type all you information in again just to access sites like this one!

Is there another way of doing this?

Not quite the question you have asked but I have carried out this mod click here which seems to avoid the admin rights issue, for me at least.

Thanks for that - a really useful site all round.

I have sorted this problem:

Right click the programme in the Start Menu-click Compatibility- tick 'Run this programme as an Administrator'. Click Apply etc.

Hope this helps anybody else with this or similar problems.
