I am unable to bridge network connections due to "unauthorized access privileges"; however, I am an Admin on this comp. First I thought the issue might be because my account was created via my company domain, and even though I had Admin rights, maybe because of how the admin account was set up, I didn't. So I tried to log in as Administrator which was created locally, but when I was in that account, I didn't even have the option to bridge the networks. I have tried to sign in as other users, but they don't work either.

Can anyone suggest something else to try, or tell me why this isn't working?

Run explorer as the Administrator account:

Type the following in command prompt

runas /user:domain\Administrator "explorer.exe"

It will then prompt for a password, enter it and hit return. You will now see a window explorer window, go to the networking within that and you should now be able to bridge connections.
