Parental controls blocking games as administrators

    I have a similar problem to many other Vista users. I downloaded several
    games from Bigfish. Most work but one won't, and it's rated E. Access denied
    parental controls pops up when I try to run it. I only have one account, the
    administrator. The game has no option to run as administrator. And parental
    controls are not set up at all because they aren't even allowed on an admin.
    account. I have tried changing the access controls to allow all users in the
    game properties, as well as changing the game rating system Vista is using.
    Must I actually create a user account, and allow open access with parental
    controls in order to play this game? (Family Fued II) by the way. How
    tedious and annoying!! If anyone knows how to fix this please write back. I
    will try the one suggestion of disabling the UAC, but doesn't that also apply
    only to users, not admins? Also, $59.00 for help from Windows!? Aren't you
    rich enough, Bill?
