You are not logged on as an administrator Pop Up (but I am)


New Member
Hello all,
I am dealing with more of an annoyance than a serious problem. When I start up I recv. a msg stating that I am not logged on as an administrator. I then have to switch users at the start menu and then no more pop up and I do have administrative capabilities.I am not that computer savy but I dont think this is normal. Other than the guest account(which is off), I am the only user. I have been through the control panel inside out and upside down. I am listed as the administrator for sure, in a group, not a domain. I also turned off the password requirement. I am confused as to why I have to take that step. Any advice? :confused:

I have not researched the "turn off password" option, but could that be the problem. Maybe you could require the password so your system would know who you were.

If you click on the picture at the top of the Start Menu, how are you listed as user?
