Hi, I am trying to install and update my Radeon HD 3850 drivers. After installation it reads something like, Complete but with problems. After reading the error report it states the driver and HDMI driver were not updated because I am NOT an administrator or from a login of administrative authority. I have tried to re-run the installation with admin right by right clicking and clicking on "run as admin," same error. I checked my account (Win account) details and as I thought, administrator. I have complete authority on my account and am finding this very frustrating. I have drivers installed from mid 2011 and after the last attempted update realized none of the installs have been successful because of this ridiculous problem. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry my system spec etc...

 

ATI Radeon HD 3850 - Driver date: 03/10/2011(Seriously needs an update)

STM3250318AS ATA Device 232gb (Think this is me HD)

Intel Core 2 Duo 4300 @ 1.80GHz

AMD High def Audio

2gb RAM

32-bit Win 7 Ultimate Service Pack 1

I am sure this is enough information.  Sorry if its not am not that sure how to find anything else out.  Like I said, the display drivers are well out of date and seriously need an update.  No matter how I open the installation it just won't seem to realise I am the administrator with full rights even when run as administrator.  Please help.
