If you have SpyBot search and destory installed it is probably this:

Also you should check you are currently an administrator, but looking in control panel, users.

Thanks for offering a solution. I do not have SpyBot on my system and I am currently identified as the administrator with full rights.  Any other ideas?

More than 75% of all records are compromised because of the loss or theft of a privileged credential. Experts have been exploring Active Directory infrastructure to identify key threats and establish best practices for keeping data safe. Attend this month’s webinar to learn more.

Way to go!  That solution finally worked.  I tried searching for the same many times but never found this solution at Microsoft.  Thanks again for making my life easier.
