    Unhappy Run as administrator Problem

    Previously Tashi had stated:
    "On Windows Vista and Windows 7, Spybot-S&D might tell you that you are not authorized to perform some actions, since they require Administrator rights. You can solve this problem as follows:

    Right-click the Spybot - Search & Destroy entry in your start menu, instead of just left-clicking to start it.
    Choose Run as administrator from the context menu."

    I tried this because I have Windows but when I right click the resulting pop up menu does not have "run as administrator" on the menu. How do I correct this error?

    Wink I found the solution!

    Here is what I did : How to run as administrator:

    Start>Programs> Rt Click SpyBot Search & Destroy>
    Open> Rt Click SpyBot Search & Destroy> Run as administrator

    Sort of a long and not so simple task but it did work for me.
    Thanks

    You might find this a bit easier.If you have a Spybot icon on your desktop,you can just rightclick that to run as administrator.hth.
