Have you use Vista ?
Make sure you are the admin on the System.
I think its the UAC asking you for admin privilages.
Right click on the file and select "Run as admin"

Is this a brand new computer? If so, you should have been prompted to create an account when you started it the first time. That account should be an administrator. Or did you upgrade? What account are you logged in with? What type of account is it listed as in User Accounts (accessible through Control Panel)?

Sometimes you need to right-click on a program and select Run As Administrator.

We need more details about your system and the circumstances surrounding the problem.
