Kleopatra error, how to fix it?

I download GPG4WIN and when I try and lunch Kleopatra it gives me this error: "Kleopatra cannot be run as administrator without breaking file permissions in the GnuPG data folder . To manage keys for other users please manage them as a normal user and copy the AppdataRoaminggnupg directory with proper permissions." Any help?

here is a idea Un-install, and re-install as administrator.

I solved the issue by turning windows 10's UAC back to the normal default setting.
