I'm using Windows 7 for the first time on my new PC and I'm getting problems installing some of my PC games and other miscellaneous programs. It either asks for me to input a password for Administrator (which I do not have) or simply says I do not have administrative rights to do it. I installed one of my games on the root (is that what it's called?) admin account because it wouldn't let me patch the game without admin rights, but it still doesn't let me patch the game on my own account. I guess I'm just having a lot of issues with the whole administrative rights thing. I don't remember ever having these problems with Vista in 07-08.
