Printer installation requires W7 Admin Rights

Specs: Windows 7, AMD Athlon II X2 Processor/ 4 GB RAM
Trying to install HP 4215 xi all-in-one printer on a Windows 7 computer system, but administrator rights is holding up the installation. I'm the adminstrator and only user and I moved the user control setting to the lowest setting. But I'm still being flagged for adminstrator rights. Thanks for your help in advance. --John

You should only be logged in as a limited or standard user in normal use. There is almost no good reason to log on to the admin account. It will have to have a password too.

Try using run as administrator from right click on the application.
