I'm trying to download maplestory and I went though the entire hour-long process but when I try to click the MSSetupv96 icon on my desktop it says "You need admin rights to continue!" I am the administrator though.. please help.

Did you try running it as admin? Try that, if it asks for a password, put in the password. And if that doesn't work, then you're not the admin.

But are you on an administrator account, though?

i use a limited account to surf the web, but i'm the administrator of my computer. if i try to install a program through the limited account, of course it's not gonna let me.

When the screen comes up, does it give you two option at the bottom to click on? I believe they are "Cancel" and "Continue" but I may be wrong. If you click continue, a second window should pop up; click continue. Now, it should work
