Installation problem


This is probably a really stupid question; I've saved calibre to my desltop as I cannot install it unless I do so as admoinistrator. I right click the program and do not see where I can run this as administrator. Is there a simple solution ?

Sorry I forgot to include essential info
I have a Dell XPS 1730 running Vista Home Premium

I have been able to right click game programs to run them as administrator, but not calibre...must be doing something wrong

I'm posting my solution in case someone else has this same problem; I posted on the geek forum and was told to go into the "user account controls" in the control panel. I unclicked the User account control box and was able to install calibre. Now I jst have to figure out how to use it.
