I get this error when the computer starts up. It does not seem to affect the program but it's an annoyance. Can you please give me information as to fixing this problem?

This is a typical error given by applications that require exclusive security access. The error is given when you simply double click the software. To avoid this error, right click the icon and choose Run as Administrator. For many apps, this procedure needs to be done only the first time you run it, but to avoid the error, right click it and select the option each time you run the application on your computer.
