How do I get around a Catch-22 for removing and Add-in from Microsoft Outlook

I'm using Microsoft Outlook 2007 in a Windows 7 environment. I wanted to delete one of the ad-ins and followed the Microsoft Outlook Help as far as how to do so. Their instructions were:

1-On the Tools menu, click Trust Center, and then click Add-ins.
2-In the Add-ins box, identify the add-in that you want to enable or disable and note the Add-in type located in the Type column.
3-Select the Add-in type in the Manage box and then click Go.
4-Select or clear the check box for the Add-in that you want enable or disable and then click OK.

After following the directions, I received the error message shown on the screenshot which indicated that I needed to have administrative privileges to make the change. unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to sign into Outlook as the administrator.

Any suggestions?

Right click on Outlook.exe and select open as administrator. Then try to remove the add-in.

Else you can remove the YouSendIt Outlook 2.10 Plug-in from the program options.
