If you have windows ME then there is no need for admin privs. Its like win 95 and 98. I havent really messed with ME, but unless I am missing something, you should be able install anything.

Sounds like a Policy setting, but windows ME does not have a policy editor.
that sort of **** usually happens when you upgrade from win98 to MadEdition. If you PC is 500Mhz or better upgrade to XP as quickly as you can, or other wise got back to window98.

check the values in

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\pol icies and
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\pol icies

to see if policy settings are in place. Changing the value to 0 should disable them.

I wouldn't advise buying xp to correct one problem, think about the cost.
