don't see "Run" after hitting start?

I don't see "Run" after hitting start? And whats UAC? And I tried to do what you said with the control panel (changing to Administrator) and I didn't get that option? How do you do all of this stuff? i hope i'm not the only one thats stuck but not afraid to ask.

here you go: –

Click on start and then type "UAC" in the search box (without quotes) and hit enter.
A window will open up that will allow you to set your UAC level. Set it to "never notify". Done– note: – generally most users should leave this at a higher level to prevent malware etc.

Click on start and look at the bottom right-hand side, just opposite All programs – you will see the word Run (in the shaded area). Click on run. A small window will open up and there you go.

Post if you have any issues.

Hi. Start menu -> I can only see shut down, or sleep, depending on how it's configured, but to access other power options I have to click on the small white arrow to the right of the power button. So if the default setting of the big button is shutdown then it's a hassle to choose sleep because...
