I am trying to setup my old PC as a spare for backups etc. There as only ever been the one user, but now I cannot open Chrome & other programs without having to right click & run as administrator. How do I get it back to normal.

You may be a member of the Admin group, but I hope you are not logged in as the Administrator.

Check to see to see what type of user your account really is?
Go to Start, Settings, then Accounts, there you can see if you are a member of the Administrator group or not.

Try creating another admin account and see if programs work OK from that account. If it does, then transfer your docs and pics and remove the current account
