What exactly are you asking?

If you're wondering how to run a program in elevated or administrator mode...

Right Click Executable (.exe) or Shorcut > Run as Administrator

If you're wondering how to get an administrator's permission to run a program, etc.

Contact the owner of the administrator account on your computer/network.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Hi mikios1,

What notsograymatter is mentioning above is a security feature, so that malicious software cannot run under your user credentials when you are logged in.

So while you can run basic administrative tasks as an administrator, windows just wants check with you before running executables.

If you have a program that you always want to run with administrator privileges, you can right click on it and make the changes in the compatibility tab and/or in the advanced area of the shortcut tab.

I hope this helps explain it.
