Windows 7 administration problems

Bought an HP G71 Notebook (Windows 7 Home Premium already installed) for Christmas and installed a couple of games with no problems except 1 game. The Adventure Company/Frogwares/Dracula:Origin. I launch the game, click play and message box pops up stating insufficient privileges:must be administrator to run for the 1st time. I am the administrator and have tried everything, and I mean everything! Starting with basic R-click ''run as admin'' all the way to taking ownership of the file. A Microsoft tech told me the procedure to ''disable admin approval mode'' but this works with Vista not 7. I don't expect anyone else will tell me something I haven't tried but I'm obviously missing the one little thing to fix this problem.
