I recently tried to download the software that is needed to play poker on the Paradise Poker site and received the following message:

You do not have access to make the required system configuration modifications. Please rerun this installation from an administrators account.

This is a home PC running Windows ME and I am not aware of multiple accounts. Any help would be appreciated.

1 - Is your computer part of a home network?
2 - Do you get a log on box when starting your computer?
3 - Have you checked for spyware &/or malware?

The software you are trying to install may be for windows XP only - which does have multiple accounts, one of which is called 'Administrator'.
