Yep, it's the Intel Chipset identification utility -- thanks!

Nick,

It's a issue with the program itself. I have tried to run it by right clicking and "Run as admistrator", and in the built-in Administrator account as well with no luck. I get the same error as you below.

You're most welcome Nick.

Do you know your motherboard brand and model number? You should be able to look the chipset up with it.

Hello Shawn

Just to clarify, does "Run as administrator" run the program
a) as if it were run by an Administrator account, or
b) as if it were run by a member of the Administrators group?

Hello DarkStar,

When you use "Run as administrator" it will elevate the program to run as if it were run by a member of the Administrators group.

In normal administrator account (not the built-in Administrator), everything runs the same as if you were a standard user by default. You have to approve UAC permission before anything can run elevated (run as administrator).

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Ah ha, thank you. That clarifies things:

So an account which is created as an Administrator account normally runs a program as a standard user.

But he/she can run the program using "Run as Administrator" gaining the elevated privileges.

It's a shame that Microsoft did not define different names for the account types and the Groups.

They do in Local Users and Groups (not available in your edition of Windows 7 though), but for security purposes the administrator runs the program the same as a standard user group until elevated using UAC to the administrators group. This way the program does not have full access to the computer if ran as a standard user. It has full access when elevated though.

Brink,

Looks like I need your help again... I do not have RAA when I right click on an app's icon.

I am running Stardock's Object Desktop & Avanquest's PowerDesk Pro8; & either of these may have something to do w/this- so I'll check further. But in the mean-time I would appreciate it if you know of something off hand...

TIAa (thanks in adv. again!) elisedai

**** EDIT to add later info*** I'm leaving this for all to see- I noticed that some apps do not have the RAA, but others do, & that was after disabling the Avanquest context menu memory resident applet... so I guess it depends on the app if there is a run-as-admin option when right-clicking ***END EDIT***
