Windows 7: Do not have sufficient administrator privileges (Grrrrr)

Do not have sufficient administrator privileges (Grrrrr)

How can I elevate my user account to the sufficient administrator level where windows will stop telling me everything I cant do? I am on a fresh install of windows, trying to move files over from a backup and I am constantly being told by windows that I don't have sufficient privileges to move files, and it annoys me so much

Please Help?

Greetings once again Tomha,

I believe the following tutorials should help.

User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Take Ownership Shortcut

Hope that helps!
