Windows 7: Administrator Problem in Home Edition

Administrator Problem in Home Edition

Hello all, I am attempting to run a program from a disc and everytime I try to run it a message pops up that reads "It appears that this computer has a level of security which prevents this software from running"

I understand that this is because administrator settings need to be enabled before I run the program. I enabled the hidden administrator user account and logged into it. The same this happens when I try to run it. The program works just fine in my windows 7 professional computer. Any ideas on what I could do to make it run?

I'm not sure your situation, but try this if it works
Go to control panel-->choose user accounts--> change user account control setting-->turn it to lowest level
if it doesn't make any changes, u still can change it to highest level

Try running the program as an administrator.

Right-click on the program file, and click "run as administrator". UAC is what is causing you grief, although it should not have any effect on the hidden "administrator" account.
