Right click the program and select run as administrator - in Windows 7 for security, programs do NOT automatically run under the same administrator privileges the user has - you need to explicitly tell the program to do so.

Open the command prompt (type cmd in the start menu search, or go to start menu -> all programs -> accessories -> and click on command line), and type sfc /scannow .

You can check if you are connected as an administrator, by clicking on your user picture in the start menu, below your name, you can check if
you are Administrator.

1.You can disable the UAC in order to avoid such situation.

2. Use the command net user username /domain to check the User account privilege.

FD ... Chances of him being logged in as Administrator are slim to none, since that account is disabled by default.  He needs to do as leew suggests.  You can also make it permanent for that program by right-clicking the program, Properties, Compatibility tab, check the box for Run as Administrator.

You could certainly disable UAC to avoid it altogether, but it's not a very good idea to drop your system's security safeguards by doing so.

Disabling UAC is bad advice in my opinion.  It's there for a reason... a very good reason.

Right Click -> Run as administrator.
In Shortcut properties or program .exe properties -> Under compatibility -> Run this program as an Admin. so no need to right click in future.
Do Not disable UAC.
