Question: I plan to upgrade my PC to Windows 8. I do not plan to download it. Rather, I will purchase the CD-ROM from my local Microsoft Store the day it comes out. Anyway, I have not had the admin password to my computer for a long time. I have been using an account that does NOT allow me to download or change anything. I cannot use those programs that break the passwords because I can’t download anything!

I plan on doing a CLEAN INSTALL of Windows 8 so it is like I have a brand new system. But I don’t want to spent $100 on a new OS and then find out it doesn’t work because I am not an admin. I don’t see why I should have a problem. It is a disk! Anyway, can anyone tell me if I will run into this issue?
