My laptop won't let me run as administrator is there a way that i can solve this problem myself?

My Laptop is running vista and I am not able to connect to the internet. To solve that problem I need to be able to run as administrator and although my computer says I am it also says that I do not have the permission and need to run as administrator. I hope that this makes sense. Thanks in advance!

Hi:

 

Normally you can right click on whatever command/executable you are trying to run, and it will give you several options. There should be one that says "Run as adminstrator."

That's where things get weird. It wont let me do that because i'm apperently not logged in as an administrator. How could I log in as an admin?

 

Thanks!

Thanks buy sadly my computer says that I don't have " permissions to access the item" I gues you have to be logged in to be administrative this is really weird

Hi,

 

It sure is. I wish I could help you further but I have no clue either since you already are an administrator.

You're very welcome.

 

I hope you can get it sorted out without having to resort to a system recovery.
