"This Program does not have the required permission"


New Member
So I recently downloaded Eraser and attempted to do a single-pass over unused disk space and the moment I execute the command - it finishes and gives the following error:"This Program does not have the required permissions to erase the unused space on the disk. Run the program as an administrator and try again. " Thing is that I -am- running it as Administer. I also tried allowing it through my norton firewall but still no such luck. Any help?
Assuming that you are running Vista or Windows 7, you will not be running the program as Administrator by default.

Please go to the FAQ sub-forum, where you will find one thread on getting to know Eraser and another on common problems. You will find the answer to your question in both places, though the first one is probably easier.
