I have Win 7 Home Premium and when I try to get an update for SuperSpyware, a message tells me I have to be logged on as Administrator - but my machine has only one user - "**** Administrator." How can I get round this?

All this does is to ask me to be notified about changes to my computer. I set it at 'notify me when programs try to make changes' and Ok it - but when I return, the slider has reset itself to 'never notify'.
