    Hello. I need to use HiJackThis on my computer, a Windows Vista Home Premium. I am having problems using it, and the first step of these problems is that I must run HiJackThis as an administrator, which I am unable to do. I am told you do this by right-clicking the HiJackThis desktop icon and choosing "run as administrator", but there is no such icon when I bring up the right-click menu. The option is simply not there.

    I only get the following options:

    Open
    -----
    Pin to Start Menu
    Add to Quick Launch
    -----
    Send To >
    -----
    Cut
    Copy
    -----
    Create Shortcut
    Delete
    Rename
    -----
    Properties
