Hi, these are my data

The problem is that 2 years ago I had to delete my main profile in Windows, as administrator, the profile which whom I instaled Filezilla. Now I have the whole administrator privileges too, but since the version 3.10.0-beta1 (2014-12-03) I am not able to update because to install it it ask for the profile that I used to install the first time.
I get the message "You may not have the necessary permission to use all the features of the program you are about to run....
"If I try to do it from my actual profile, it says that "Filezilla has been previously installed for all users... Please restart the installer with Administrator privileges."

Please, help me please, because it is one of my most used tools as a webmaster!!!

Thank you in advance

This is not critical as it is neither a security vulnerability nor renders FileZilla unusable for all users.

Make sure you are starting the installer with an account that can request elevation. If the installer's UAC prompt shows up, click Yes.

If you have disabled UAC, please reactivate it.
