I am on a Win7 - 64 bit OS, with MS Office 2007 installed. I am having a few issues with it, and wanted to disable some Add Ins to see if that helps. Unfortunately, MS Office will not let me disable the Add-Ins - it says it must be done by an Admin. I am logged in as the Admin on this machine. So I following the Geek's instructions on how to enable the admin mode on the application, but it is not letting me. The below screen cap shows that Run As Admin is greyed-out. Any suggestions? I can probably activate the hidden Admin account, but will hold that as a last resort. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated!

Additonal footnote: I tried running Excel in Compatability mode - which oddly let me change the settings - I have set it (and the other Office programs) to Run as Administrator - then turned off Compatablity Mode, and it stuck. Problem solved. For now.
