Windows 7: Saying I don't have admin privileges...

Saying I don't have admin privileges...

I was trying to install a video game called Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst on my computer. It couldn't install 2 executable's saying access was denied. I have it installed on my Windows 7 laptop so I thought I would just copy the files. Once it got near the end it said I need administrative privileges for the exact same 2 files. I tried doing the "Take Ownership" but that didnt do anything. All my PC info is in my profile, and if you need any more info just ask.

Thanks in advance,
Keith

PS. Added picture of me trying to extract 2 DIFFERENT executables from Winrar (files completely unrelated to the video game)

If you are running as admin, right click on the .exe and select run as admin. If that doesn't work, select troubleshoot compatibility.
