Im trying to download updates for my superantispyware...and it keeps on telling me that i need to do it on an administrator account. This is the /only/ account on the computer, noone else has access to it, and yet it says im not an administrator? How do i get administrator status onto my current account?

Right-click SUPERAntispyware > Run as Administrator

Now you can run program updates. :huh:

SUPER doesn't normally run with Admin privileges, so you have to give it those privileges manually when an update is needed. No biggie. :huh:

Yes quick solution :huh: But not good for security programs, as they need admin access for many things. So why not set it to run in admin mode permanently ?
