Default uninstall ad administrator...BUT I AM THE ADMINISTRATOR

Hi, there's a few programs on my computer that i'm trying to get rid of cause I never use (such as Roxio) to help it run better. However, anything I try to install pops up with a message that says I don't have rights to remove programs because I'm not an administrator. I'm the only one that uses my computer!! help.

Sorry to ask a dumb question, but... How many accounts does your computer have and are you logging in using an administrator account?

Diable the stupid User Account Control. That may help.

i had the same problem, but i found a way to get rid of it
Vista got a administrator account u can not see, if u want to see it or even log into it, it is a easy way to do it:
1. open cmd with administrator rights
2. write: net user administrator /active:YES
3.push enter
4.logg off ( or change user)
5. the administrator user will be showen

but to get rid off the problem.
1.i just push continue
2.get administrator rights
3. then u push on options right under all the showen users
4. remove all users besides ur one from the list
5.click on ur user
6. under the userbox is a nother box there is the rights ur user has now, but u got to click on every right

i hoped that helped u
did work for me, so i hope it will work for u too
