    I think you need to login as Administrator with the password you set up when you installed windows.

    Hold down the Shift key and right-click the icon to see the context menu that Screen 1 shows. Select Run As to bring up the Run As Other User screen, where you can enter a different username, password. Should come up automatically as administrator. Dont enter a password and hit OK.
