I don't know why it doesn't come up with more programs. I've not seen
this before either.

In Googling around I find other accounts of people askingthis question
but so far none of their quieries have been answered.

I'm wondering if there might be a registry entry for this. Under
Windows NT & XP you can add different users to the group of
administrators. I presume this is placed in the registry so maybe
there's a way for me to put my user account in the registry to
temporarily make this work?
