become administrator

I cannot fix errors on Spybot because it says I am not the administrator. I googled how to become one, but it didn't work. Can someone tell me how to do it. I have Windows 7 and use Firefox. Thanks.

Right click on Spybot and select run as administrator.
Then take a look at this tutorial if more help is needed

I tried what you said and it didn't work. It says I am administrator under my account. Spybot is the only place where it says administrator needed. I deleted spybot and looked for one for windows 7, but couldn't figure out which one to use. What do you think I should use? Thanks
