    Hello Vini, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Is your account an administrator type account?

    If not, then this is why you are being asked to enter an administrator account's password to approve running a program that is requesting to "Run as administrator" (elevated).

    You'll need to ask the administrator for help.

    If you are the administrator, then you should be able to change the password for that account while signed in any other administrator account.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn
