Why does my screen lie to me?    I went to empty my recycle bin and the screen message said

"You are not permitted to perform this action. Please contact your administrator."


Well I am the administrator and was on the administrator's identity.


I am the only one using my web connection.    I am on my own home-based  computer.  


I have one computer that gives me these messages and one that does not.   


Can anyone help me understand and change the  causes of this?
