    having knowledge of computers doesn't automatically elevate you to an administrative privilege. Ask her to elevate your account and disable UAC... or do what I did and pre-disabled UAC and remove the Security Center Via vLite.

    Win+R, msconfig, , Tools tab, Disable UAC (you need to have elevated privileges to do this)
