Insufficient priviliges

Sometimes when I have installed some games i get the messege that I can't run the program because "insufficient administrator priviliges". But there is only one acount and thats me, and I'm the admin.
Is there anyway to solve this problem...?

Welcome to the forum and Win7.

If you are starting the game using a desktop icon try right mouse clicking and open the menu and select. "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR"

You can also make this work from then on for that icon if you right mouse click and select PROPERTIES then the SHORTCUT TAB then select ADVANCE BUTTON.
Then you can select by checking the box "RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR"

You can you these steps for any icon or when you run any program.
Someone will step in here and tell you about SUPER ADMINSTRATOR for Win7
You can also do a search and find out more yourself.
Good luck

Sometimes the Autorun will execute the installation on Elevated Admin Rights but, sometimes (like in your case) it won't.

In my case I usually do one of the options mentioned by IggyAZ but if not, when I get the autorun, I use Explore this CD option, go to the setup.exe file, right click on it and use "Run as Administrator"... this way I know for a fact that the installation and all the files will be installed with Elevated Admin Rights.
