Administrator abilities

I have W&HP, and I'm the only user and my ID is set as Administrator. Every time I attemps to set up the Gadgets, I get a message "Your Administrator governs Gadagets". That's not the exact message, but it basically says only the Admin can do this, AND I am the Admin.

Thanks for nothing, Windows! I now find out that the version I bought does not support the built-in Admin function.
Along with the fact that ONLY after I bought the W7 Home Premium that it does not support all the RAM I have.
Any more smelly little secrets?

Eh? What do you...."does not support all the RAM"? If you have more than 4GB RAM, install the x64 version of Home Premium. Easy.

There aren't any smelly secrets mate : do some research first, and if in doubt ask here and we will help you
