Running Fix It Center the first time after installation requires Administrator rights. My windows domain account has Administrator rights on every domain computer, but I still get this message at startup of Fix It Center. Right clicking on the shortcut and running it as local Administrator gives an other error (different credentials between logged on user). The only way I get it working is adding my Domain Account directly to the local Administrators group, but this is not a suitable solution to manage multiple computers.
Any suggestions how to solve this better?

Dear Fix it Center (Beta) Customers,
Thank you for your feedbacks.
The failure you encountered during setup using a domain administrator account is a known issue in our bug database. As a first beta release, the target audience of the application is home consumers. We will consider correcting the problem in future releases. As a workaround, you may add your domain administrator account directly as a member of the local Administartors group on the computer and re-attempt the Fix it Center (Beta) setup. Another workaround is to set up the application using a local user account in the local Administrators group of the affected computer.
Thanks again for your patronage and feedbacks!

That truly sucks! The less keyboarding I have to do the better. It's like getting fully dressed before putting on your underwear! Get my drift? I too have an Administrator and PCs4People logging in at the most inconvenient times...like when I'm trying to download a program or in the middle of something creative. Makes me lose my train of thought! (I'm a journalist.) Please make this problem go away!
