administrator privileges
I am trying to uninstall a program and it says I need to have administrator
or power user privileges to uninstall the program. When I set my computer up
I set it up so it assumes I am logging on and I am the administrator. How do
I get the privilege? It says I am an administrator in computer management,
local users and groups. Please advise. Thank you.

Some poorly written programs can only be installed or uninstalled under the actual Administrator account, not just a user account with administrator rights. You could also try that.
