Help - Administrator Account on Win7

I just bought my computer, and after setting the whole thing up, I started using it...When I was installing a software, it came up that little screen os Users Account Control, asking me: DO YOU WANT TO ALLOW THE FOLLOWING PROGRAM TO MAKE CHANGES TO THIS COMPUTER? And it goes on everytime I try to click on something with the UAC icon, everytime I try to install something I simply cant. I cant even change my account type into ADMINISTRATOR. And when the window pops up, it says, TO CONTINUE, TYPE IN ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD AND CLICK YES. But theres no administrator password, is there? And I cant click on YES anytime! Ive tried to RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR by right-clickin on Prompt, but apparently, its no good. Can someone help me, please?

There are two types of accounts Administrator and Standard. When you set up your computer, I am sure that you set up an administrator account for yourself. The passwword that they want is your administrator password.

You can create a new or an administrator account by typing user account in search and then just follow the prompts.

The thing is: I cant create or modify my User Account. Whenever I click on it, the same window pops up and theres no way of clicking YES. So, whenever theres a UAC icon, theres no way of modifying anything or setting anything differently from what is there....So, thats why Im kinda worried....

If you are sure that you did not select a password, just try hitting enter, without entering a password, when asked. If that does not work, this can be solved, do not worry. I and many others will see to it that your problem will be resolved.

Its getting late here, 12:30, so I have to leave soon. Others will be here to help. If not, just post and I will give you priority tomorrow. We will get this to work.

If I press ENTER, as NO is selected, the window just closes... And theres no place for me to type the password...

Heres what happens... When I open my Control Panel, there are these items with UAC icons next to them... Those I cant get open...Because the message I told you before opens... (Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to your computer? And Yes is always unavailable.)

Id really appreaciate If I could get any help. Thank you.
