You need administrator rights to install programs on your computer. If you are using a work computer or school computer (maintained by an IT group) you should contact them to determine if and how you can achieve administrative rights.
If this is your personal computer then this problem is coming from your Operating System. You need to right-click on the installation file and click "Run as Administrator" to give the program the rights to change files on your computer. A warning will pop-up asking if you are sure you want to give this program the right to change files, just click yes/OK and follow the on-screen instructions for installing your software.

How do I use a program ive just downloaded on this laptop


Hi
Usually the files you download for programmes are ".exe" or ".zip" files. In the case of ".exe" files they are either executable, in which case you need to double click on them and follow the instructions to install the programme, or they are self-extracting zip files where you again double click on the programme, it will ask you where you want the files expanded to, and once expanded you need to find the "Setup.exe" file and double click to install the programme. ".zip" files you have to expand manually and then double click the Setup.exe" file to install the programme.
Incidentally you must have administrator rights to install programmes, if you are a standard user, most likely, then you must either run the programmes as administrator (right click on the file and click "Run as Administrator" in the menu that comes up) or log off and log on as an Administrator with appropriate password.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I'm trying to install a program and my computer keeps telling me I don't have administrator privileges?


That happens when you are running a user account that is not the administrator account. In many ways this is smart because trojans and viruses have the same trouble installing. In schools or office buildings where they want to control who installs what on the computers it makes less problems for an administrator to fix. In your case switch users and log into your administrator account in control panel see if you can give your usual user account administrator privileges, shut down administrator account and log into your usual account and see if it now has administrator privileges in the control panel/user accounts. If not then install software while logged in the administrator account but install for all users from now on. Or you can only use the administrator account and set it up the way you like it (like your regular user account)

When i attempt to install the driver included with the Tascam 122 interface it says "Your user account must have administrator privleges to install drivers" and I already do have an administrative account.


Boot normally and once you fully logged in, press the [Log Off] button instead of the [Shut Down] button. It will prompt you to log on. Select [Administrator] and go in as the Administrator and not someone who has Administrative privledged.

If that does not work, reboot the computer and press [F8] to get to the boot menu. Select "Safe" boot. Once in the safe boot mode install the device ans Administrator. Some items can not be installed this way but if all else fails, give it a try.

I cant log in into my administrator account and i cant change,install or down load any thing without needin the password


Did you change it or supply a password? If not, try a blank password (just hit enter when prompted for the password). Also, you can try logging on as administrator or a person with administrative rights. Again, try a blank password when prompted if you haven't changed it.

Trying to install all in one printer onto new computer


You apparently do not have administrative access to the computer. If you are using XP, you will need to log out and log back in as a user that has administrative privileges on the computer. Under VIsta, you need to respond to the UAC prompt in order to install software drivers.

Follow the instructions very carefully. Remember to connect your camera - in "play mode" before you run the setup.exe file. You must also be logged in as administrator.(or run the file as administrator
).
