Hello Dennis,

That maybe just a prompt set by the windows operating system to ensure that your database is not accessed by some other unauthorized person. Therefore when it says that you need to have administrator privileges to access the database, just provided the password that you use to log into your system. It should allow you to see the database that way.

Otherwise when creating the database you might have set up credentials for accessing it, and in that case you will need to provide those credentials, the right passwords so that you can access the database. And just to be sure, make sure that you have not logged in with a guest account.

Try checking your user account details and see if anything changed. It may be likely that your user account is not anymore set as an administrator and you just need to set it back and give it administrative privileges. You also need to check the access details for your database. Has any of the user access control changed? If anything has changed, just change it back and grant full access to your user account. If everything is fine and nothing changed, then you may have a corrupted user account. Try creating another user account with administrative access and give it access to the database. Restart the computer and log into that user account. If the problem is with the user account itself, using another user account should be able to fix it.
