    When I try to install the program msconfig cleanup,
    I get this error message"You must be logged in as administrator when installing this program.".
    I am loggedd in as administrator and I try right click run as administrator, get same message.

    Are you logged in as an administrator or does your account have addministrator privleges? You would have to have the administrator account enabled and log into that account to be logged in as an administrator. This web link shows how to enable the administrator account. Sorry to bother with this info if you already do have this.

    You could try right clicking and choosing take ownership if it listed.
