Windows Vista Minor Problem, Need help.

#1
Hi there,
I have Windows Vista Ultimate installed on my computer, It works fine ecept for when I try to install some video drivers it comes up with the message "You Need To Be In Administrator Mode" half way through the installation. I went and checked and I am in administrator mode, there is only the one account on this computer and its the administrator one.

How do I fix this, Its quite urgent.

Thanks,
BIGDANW

Yes, you are an administrator but normally you have to confirm privileged tasks via a pop-up sign.
To allow privileged tasks to be automatically confirmed during a program installation, you have to
Right click the installation file (setup.exe) and select “Run as administrator”.

All of the above are solutions, which I have used myself, but sometimes also turning off UAC and doing the install, then turning it back on, is another solution to your problem although inconvenient.

That's what I did but I never turned it back on cause it was a PITA ;)
