Run as administrator

So I just spend another happy time wrestling with a program that hung when run - the skin installer in Rainmeter. And yes, setting 'Run as administrator' solved it. Microsoft really don't like users changing this, so it's in the basement with the faulty light switch in the folder marked 'beware of the leopard' (© Douglas Adams).

Rainmeter is a free system that behaves rather like Gadgets, adding assorted little apps to the desktop.
