I have just installed Vista on my laptop, and while there is only my account, with administrator rights, when i try to install a new program (not in every new one), a message appears saying that i must login as administrator to install this program. What am i doing wrong..?
Thanks!

Out of the box Vista is obnoxiously trying to protect you from yourself...

The first thing I would do if you haven't already is turn off UAC (user account control). Actually... that really has nothing to do with your issue... but I love to say that.

When you're ready to install your program just right click the ".exe" file and choose "run as administrator"
