You must have administrator rights to be able to install any program or game on your computer. It may mean that the user account that you are using is either a guest acocunt or an account with limited access.

Try these steps to change your log in

1) go to the control panel
2) Select User Accounts/User Account
3) Log in as the administrator and enter the password to switch accounts

Or you can log off from your current user and relog in using the admin account. If you do not know the password, it is better to inform the admin that you have to install a game so he/she will do it for you.

Hope that helps!
