Even if you log in as an Administrator, you are still running with a token that grants you standard privileges. To actually run in administrative mode, you need to elevate so that you are running with the administrative token.

This can lead to problems with registry files as you cannot elevate when you try to merge these files into the registry. By following my Tutorial Registry Editing - Vista Forums you can compile the files into batch files which can be run with administrative credentials, i.e. Run as administrator. If run from a standard account, then you will need to provide the name and password of an administrator account. If run from an administrator account, you will just need to confirm that you want to run in elevated mode.
