      You have to run the program as an administrator. Your "admin" account is not and administrator in Vista and 7 thanks to UAC (User Account Control).

      Right click the shortcut and choose "Run as Administrator", and that will work.

        thanks for the rpely 2k, i ended up finding a solution shortly after i posted... by getting to the cmd and right clicking on it and running it as the admin..

        once in cmd, from the c: prompt. typed "net user administrator /active:yes"

        which activates the true admin profile,
        log out, then log in as the the true admin.. once in there evrything works fine, so i just renamed the true admin to mine, and deleted the old,

        thanks for the reply,

          FYI, it is unwise to use the true admin account on a regular basis from a security perspective.
