You might be on a standard account in 7 while XP you have an administrators account. Have u checked what kind of account u are in 7?

yep, like they said and the error says. You nees to log into an administrative account. You may alao have to make your account an administer to change it on your settings . Sometimes those setting don't quite slide over to all accounts just because you changed it on an administrator account.
