I have windows 7. I cannot run as Administrator. I right click on Spybot and click on Run AS Administrator and when I try and fix my problems it still says I have to Run As Administer. Please help.

"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."
From our FAQ here: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/faq/42.html
There is also a screen shot which should help.
This is what I am doing. I am opening spybot and right clicking on Run as Administrator. It WILL NOT WORK.
Please try this:
rightclick the Spybot icon, select Properties, Compatibility Tab, and under Privilege level, checkmark "Run this program as an administrator", then click Apply, and OK.
