Hello. I've just started getting this msg when I try to remove certain programs that were downloaded by me, off of my PC. Windows XP is the system. Message is : "You need to be the administrator to perform this action". Or something like that. I am the administrator and always have been.
I'm thinking that maybe at one time long ago, I set a protected password. But I don't recall doing that and my PC was allowing me to delete things before. Don't know why this is happening now, or where else to check to find it and correct it. I have no virus (anti-virus and firewall are up to date.) So that's not it.
