    I haven't used it yet.  I'm not that good with such things and I don't want to pay a lot of money to fix what I might mess up.  If I use this will I be the administrator of C: drive?
    Thanks

    You're, and you'll be an administrator. What happens, sometimes some registry files got corrupted, and given folder may not recognize you as an administrator. Using my link will provide you with right click command , which will force any given folder/file to accept you as the administrator.

      I saved it and opened it and tried to save something in the Program files but it would not let me.  It ask if I want to save it to in MY folder instead.

          Yes.  It would not let me save it to Program files.  I had to save it to MY file.

          You're doing something wrong.
          At my link, you click on own.zip to download it.
          Find the downloaded file on your computer.
          Unzip it.
          You'll get own.reg file.
          Right click on own.reg, and click "Merge".
          Agree to merge.
          Restart computer.
          Now, when you right click on any folder/file in Windows Explorer, you'll see new option: "Take Ownership".
          Right click on "Program Files" folder, click "Take Ownership".



          Now, you have taken ownership of "Program Files" folder.

          Try to install your SS Calculator again.

            There's nothing to zip.

            I don't see what that has to do with Broni's suggestions...
            I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

                I did everything and took ownership of Program files and it went crazy.  Is that what it's suppose to do?

                I'm not there, and I don't know, what you mean by "went crazy".

                  It was running in C:\Windows\System32 giving me ownership of everything I guess.
