Default Initialization Error: User privileges insufficient to start low level driver

Hello,

This is my first post and hope someone can help. I can't open my Pro Tools 8.0.4. and it says...

Initialization Error: User privileges insufficient to start low level driver


I was cleaning up my computer last week and must have uninstalled a driver that looked suspicious as a virus. The icon on the driver was the image of a dog?

Can anyone offer advice before I pay the $40 to support to fix the issue for me?
Should I just uninstall PT and my Mbox Mini drivers and then reinstall?

Thanks in advance good people of the internet!

Hi, try right-clicking the Pro Tools icon and choose "Run As Administrator". This is one of the suggested Optimizations found here:
