    Win 8 pops up that message about admin privileges needed for any number of things on my Win 8 system. I my case I just click OK (or Yes, don't recall which) and it proceeds with the operation. I, to, am a single user on my computer and am the Admin.

    Don't know if this is of any help or even if yours is the same, but just thought I'd post it FYI.

    Thank you for the reply,

    the window that pops up doesn't give me a yes or no option ... it says i need permission from admin..... i am also a single user on this computer.

    The only other thought I have would be to give it try in Safe mode (with networking if you need internet access). I haven't seen this on Win 8 computer, but on my older XP machine, Safe mode had a separate log in for Admin from my user log in.

    I've done this on XP, but not in Win 8. The process looks similar, so it should work. What I'm referring to is taking ownership of a file. Click here to review the process.

    This may or may not solve your difficulty, but I strongly suggest you backup your files and if possible create a full backup image of your hard drive before you attempt the process. Just good practice whenever you attempt anything of this sort. Not doing so could possibly result in disaster.

    Found another method that looks better to me, although I've not used it. Click here to check it out.

    Tried a few of the options on this guide .... no luck...

    tried the take ownership app....no luck..

    on windows xp/7 i never had this problem ... i wonder if its a win 8 issue or maybe when i backed up those files before i upgraded i messed something up....

    I'm out of ideas at the moment. If i think of anything else, I'll post back. Meanwhile, perhaps another member will respond.

    Good Luck... :)
