Need help with installing software cant enter admin password

well im still stuck as a standard user but gotten used to it. I am trying to make a USB boot disk but the program requires a admin password when it it says "to continue type a administrators password then click yes then normally below it there should be accounts to pick and areas next to the account you can type for the password but there are no accounts there and there isn't a area so I can type the password any suggestions. Really appreciate it.w
