Windows 8

Asked by: michael s turner

I have a new windows 8 computer.  I need to download and install Citrix receiver.  I can download but when I want to install it says I do not have administrative privileges.  I tried to right click and look for option to run as administrator, but no such option.  I have dialed down the UAC and still no luck. I am signed in as an administrator according to my profile
