Windows 7: Just installed W7 and then Outlook 2007

Windows 7
Just installed W7 and then Outlook 2007

Hello all, apologies if this has been asked before;

I have just installed windows 7 to my laptop and then installed Outlook 2007.

I am now trying to add some stationery to outlook:

Save Attachements
Microsoft Shared

When I press saved it tells me I need admin rights to save in this location. I am not technical so do not know what I need to do next, but it is my laptop and I am the only user and my account is set up as admin.

Is there anything I can do to get this fixed?

Appreciate any help.

yes, you are OK to proceed
you are the administrator

- it's just Windows 7 being cautious on your behalf..

Thank you. I tried to continue but this is the message I get;

"You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

Would you like to save in the (my name) folder instead?"

If I press yes it saves it in the wrong place, if I press no is cancels everything.

I'm lost in the world of Microsoft
