Run program with administrative privileges:


Start > Type the program in the Search Box. (for example: cmd)
Hold Shift + Control then hit Enter.
UAC will then request permission to run as Administrator.

Start > Type "msconfig" in the Search Box.
UAC will ask for permission.
Click on the Tools tab.
Select "Disable UAC" or "Enable UAC".
Click on "Launch"
