Back in my user support days, we'd get a call about this very thing about once a month. This is going to be obvious to many of our older users, but in those days, the average user had no clue. This led to users trying various things but the user that got me was the one who'd taken her entire desktop unit and reassembled it on a shelf over her desk. "The only way elevate the machine any higher would be to install it in the ceiling panels," was her explanation.

I know this is not a solution to your issue, but I had to add two cents of humor.

What exactly are you trying to do in this prompt ?

AFAIK if you followed the link from the previous poster, then you WILL have elevated privileges. Still that doesn't mean you can do everything, specifically if you try to modify something which requires SYSTEM privileges then you'll hit a wall.
