When I attempt to open my company file, the message box is "This action requires windows administrator permissions".

try copying the company file to another location where you know that you have full rights to it. If you create a new folder under the documents folder that should do it.then right click on the file and select properties. make sure that it is not set to hidden or system or read only. then attempt to open this new copy of the file.
