I use Windows Vista and an the sole user. In attempting to run Restoration an error message instructs me to

Please log on with administrator priviledge and then run the programme again.

How do I do this?

Ok I found how I can access my stuff but I want to log in as Administrator because my itunes library etc is on there but I cant figure how to switch.

Sorry, meant to post on my thread.

Control Panel/User Account/urn user account control off. I am also a sole user and there is no need for user account. (You can turn the system tray warning off)

You can also run as admin with individual programs as required.

Simply right click on icon, and select open as administrator.

I don't understand what this last contribution means, Fingees.

Right click on any program you want to run, and at the top of the context menu you will see "Run as administator"

there is some more info about this on the Windows Vista forum here
clicking run as admin doesnt always solve the problem - I now use a small download called take ownership but sometimes I still get access denied

Start > type "Control Userpasswords2" in the run/search box > Press [Enter].

Double click your username, and go to the "Group membership" tab, and select Other and change the combo box to Administrators. Select OK, and OK. . . :-)

U can also try to type "Services.msc" in the run box and Pres Enter, then scroll down to "System Restore service" and double click it. Go to "log on" tab and select "Local system acount" and OK, try that then if still not work then go back to that "Log on" tab in "Services.msc" and instead of "local System Account" try "Other2 and type for the username: "Administrator" (With out the Speechmarks) and make both the password fields blank.

Select Ok. And then try that.
