    Default help needed - computer administrator error

    hi,
    i use spybot for a long time, but since i changed from XP to Vista a error ocurrs

    when im imunizing the system for unprotected threats it shows this message:

    this action may not be performed since you are not the amninistrator.
    If you want this performed for all users, please run this application elevated as an admnistrator.


    and several items remain unprotected, how can i solve this if im the only acount on the computer!! so im the administrator!

    thanks

    Hello,

    Windows Vista might tell you that you are not being allowed to operate at the administration level of your computer.
    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.
    Then, choose Run as administrator from the context menu.
    You will find a screenshot of this problem in our FAQ:
