OK, So here's my problem.
I installed Windows 7 using a password to ensure I would be logged in as the administrator. Once logged in I can go to the user accounts in control panel where it tells me that I am indeed logged in as the administrator.
I then installed one of my old programs and it ran perfectly. However, Windows then started installing loads of updates. When it had finished I could no longer run the program and was being told I need to be logged in as the administrator even though I still am.
A online search tells me I am not alone with this problem, and no doubt it has been brought up on this site a few times before. I have tried most of the advice given to others but none of it worked. So tell me, has anyone actually come up with a solution to this problem.
