Download Update - need to be administrator

I am trying to down the latest update but Act is telling me I need to be the Adminstrator - I am the only one using this laptop.

 

Windows 8.0 Act 16.0.291.0 Hiotfix 4

However if you have the User Access Control active (default with Windows Vista, 7 and 8) you aren't truly the system administrator. Try right clicking on the ACT! icon and choose Run as Administrator from the context menu.

Hi,

 

you need to run act as Administrator, if you check out this link, (second section) you will find some links that explain the difference.
