Windows 7: "You have no 'Administrator' privilege" Message On Startup

"You have no 'Administrator' privilege" Message On Startup

I'm not sure if this a new update for Windows 7 (64-bit Professional) but an account with Standard access now has a window that pops up upon login that says ...

You have no 'Administrator' privilege, so some features may not work successfully.
I've done more fresh installs than I can count and have never seen this annoying popup before. I've tried searching on google and the only discussions about this message are in Japanese. I wonder if it's not even a Windows thing but one of the drivers I updated (Belkin USB wireless adapter, SATA 6 drivers, USB 3.0 drivers, etc).

Anyone come across this before?

Never seen this, sorry.

However, next bootup, leave the message on-screen and start Task Manager. If the error window is showing in the 'Applications' list, right-click on it and click 'Go To Process'. With a bit of luck this will be the executable that triggered the error message and may help track down the cause.

Thank you - checked out the task manager and spot the Belkin UI process. Terminated that and sure enough so went the annoying popup window with it. I'm not sure why I had suspected that driver though. I also thought I had already prevented that program in startup. Just rechecked msconfig and it seems to have stuck.

Thanks again for the advice.

No problem. Check your Services, as well -there might be a Belkin service runninng which starts that program, as well as a msconfig entry.
