Hey FallenAngel23,

Welcome to the GeeksToGo Forum Boards!

I think we should rule out one possibility first. You may not have complete access to administrator privileges. To determine whether or not this is true, please follow my instructions below:

Go to:
Start>Control Panel>User Accounts>Change and Account

From there, find your username and make sure that it says, "Computer Administrator".

If it doesn't, there's our problem. You could also be restricted to particular files by a higher administrator (if applicable), in which they are able to directly edit the types of programs that can be executed, viewed, etc...

Let me know what happens!
