Privilege mode? I don't think that's the message. But if you're logged in as admin you probably just have to take ownership: http://www.blogsdna.com/2173/add-take-ownership-option-in-right-click-context-menu-of-windows-7.htm

What exactly are you trying to perform?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Since you left a message on my profile requesting my assistance, I am here to provide you with a suggestion.

In Windows Vista/ Windows 7.

Click the start button, look for all programs, assessories, then the command prompt icon.

Right click this icon.

When the menu pops up, choose properties, then another window will open with various tabs.

Choose compatibility.

Then check mark the box under privilege level for run this program as an administrator

Then click apply.

This notice should now go away.

Hope this helps.


Edit: added assessories to directions.
