getting Administrator permission

I'm trying to download Maxtor backup software and it refuses to let me install in Program Files folder. It says I need permission from the Administrator...that's me (this is a single computer at home), but I don't know how to give/get that permission. Can anyone give me the steps to get there? Thanks so much. Merry Christmas!!
