    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.
