I downloaded wget for windows.

I ran this to recieve some web pages but it seems permission was denied for writing or something.

If you go under wget's properties, you can specify that it runs with admin privs everytime. – surfasb Jun 30 '11 at 4:37

In cmd you can use this:

runas /profile /user:Administrator program name
