Windows 7 asks for administrator rights while installing Driver Whiz
  

Driver Whiz is a software that helps to find the most current drivers for the system. I was using this software in my system when I was using Windows XP and it had a very simple interface and thus, was of a great help to me. Now, I have done a clean install of the Windows 7 operating system. So, after I have done this Windows 7 asks for administrator rights while installing Driver Whiz. I cannot understand why this is happening. Kindly help me with suitable solutions.

This will help you to solve the problem hopefully.

Re: Windows 7 asks for administrator rights while installing Driver Whiz

There are many security options or features in the Windows 7 operating system. This is why you are finding that Windows 7 asks for administrator rights while installing Driver Whiz. It is required at such times that the option of "run as administrator" has to be used. This is an option that forces any application or program to run in the system. I have solved many such problems in my system too with Windows 7.
