How to burn WITHOUT admin rights

Q: How to burn WITHOUT admin rights

I've downloaded and installed over 20 different burning programs and none of them work because I do NOT have administrator rights on this pc. Is there a way to be able to burn if I'm JUST a user? (I do NOT have nor can I get access to administrator). Any help would be appreciated!

Preferred Solution: How to burn WITHOUT admin rights

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Nope, talk to the person that does have admin rights. I'll bet there's a reason you don't have admin rights.

the problem arose yesterday when i decided to delete some stray looking files in my C: root folder. so i deleted boot.ini - not the best idea. i'm pretty sure this is what lead to me receiving 'ntldr is missing' when i turned on the pc today. so i cant boot it up now.

i did a search on the computer im on now and found a program that should allow me to boot from a disc (i dont have my windows disc atm). i need to burn an iso (i dont have a floppy drive) but windows xp cant do this by default.
i cant install proper burning software as i dont have admin rights. i tried using a program that doesn't need to be installed, but it says it cant initialize aspi layer, so i can't burn with it either

does anyone know how i can burn an iso on this machine?

A:trying to burn iso on pc without admin rights or aspi layer

You don't need to burn anything.
Take the hard drive out of the fubar machine, put it in another machine. Use that other machine to make a new boot.ini (that is, write a new one in a text editor). Put it back in your fubar machine. Presto, changeo, you can boot again.

OR, you can just use a XP Quick Boot Diskette

On Windows XP, installing iTunes requires admin rights. However, it is not good to use an admin account for regular work. For the Palm Desktop, the workaround was to grant admin rights to the user account, install the application using the user-turn-admin account, then ungrant admin rights. Will this last step cause problems for iTunes, or does iTunes require admin rights for its regular operation (outside of being installed)?

Ive stumbled across a problem that has been causing me grief for a few days now, every time I try to access my hard drive (C disk) it says, access is denied. Also, i cant edit permissions because I've lost admin rights. Ive tried many things including unlocking the system admin, this lets me access a few extra things like being able to use the sfc command in cmd, however, it doesn't allow me to access the C disk or change permission because it also has lost admin rights? I fear that this is a bad problem and I don't know how it happened. I have tried restoring to a previous date and that doesn't work either.

Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Shimin4tor

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

A:Windows 10 admin password reset or new account with admin rights

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

Using Win 8.1

First off, the account I'am signed on with is listed as admin type account. It's the one I had to enter my windows account email.
Since installing the new MalwareBytes 2.0 program (which went in without any problem) it put an shortcut icon on desktop. I tried too move the icon from desktop to another folder and it said I needed admin rights to do this. Usually once I click on continue it gives me access and proceeds to carry out the command.
So I followed the tutorial to build hidden admin account. I type in: net user administrator /active:yes, it completed. I signed on to the admin account and tried the same operation and it still asked for admin rights.
What am I doing wrong?

UpDate: MalwareBytes 2.0 has a self protection ability that needs to not be enabled, otherwise everything associated with the Program including program icons located anywhere cannot be moved.

Recently I did a clean install from the windows installation tool off a CD I made. Soon after logging on and making my first account (again!) I couldn't open the C drive. I messed with the owner options and made my account the owner so I could open it. Possibly before or maybe after (I'm not sure) I realised I wasn't able to use any admin settings, (like add another account or see advanced system settings) open any applications that required admin rights (like CMD or any installation file) or do anything in the system menu. I've tried to look up the solution but can't find anything that fits the description of my problem. Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance for at least reading this.

I am trying to change the folder properties of a applications folder from read only. I am doing this per instructions from the apps provider to prevent crashes.

When I go to change the permissions it states I need admin privileges. The only account I have on the box is the admin however I did change the name to something besides admin. The account is definitely an admin account.

okay freshly into win now having obtained a new hdd for my comp I have been running as the admin of my computer since accounts became an unavoidable thing barring the occasional frustration-induced blunder I tend to stay Properly Paranoid in my habits to make sure I have no problems but win doesn't think that I could ever be intelligent enough to have full rights on any account other than the built-in admin account which of course I'd want to avoid using outside emergencies that render other accounts damaged somehow so I'm looking to find out how to make another user account with FULL admin rights not just the constantly have to get permission stuff that a standard snort admin account has full rights that don't involve constantly having to run as administrator yes yes I've heard people trying to get me more paranoid so that I'd endure the added hassles all it does is make me more irate with the situation so if noone's willing to provide me with instruction on this it's probably best for the thread to be left to fall off the board

Okay, I'm very sure I set my account to be Admin, there's only one account anyway, yet W8 requests admin permission to do everything.

All because of this, I can't change the .ini of a game, I can't update Neverwinter Nights using the updater, I can't save .inis or .txts anywhere except documents...It's annoying.

I used to have W7 before, it never did this to me, but Windows 8 really deeply annoys me.

Now I'll be specific by saying that I only have "Windows 8", no Enterprise or Pro.

How can I make W8 stop nagging me everytime about admin rights? I AM an admin.

So here is an interesting problem I ran into after working on the family computer (I was away at college and just got back for break).

After removing all the viruses, I was left with a computer where both the main user account and the Admin account did not have Admin rights. I can log into the Administrator account, but I cannot do even the most simplest of things, such as open Control Panel. So, I am at a loss to fix this. So simply enough, how does one restore administrative rights to the admin account when it has lost them.

Windows XP Home SP2
Control Panel, and many related functions, along side with such things as leftclick->properties on My Computer do not work (It says privilege removed, contact admin).

Installed Windows 8, loving it. However, one thing I've noticed is that every time I try to run anything, it runs it as a non-admin. I hate specifically clicking "Run as Administrator" every time I open a program so my question is this, is there a way to make it run every program as admin permanently?

A:Admin Rights

nope, it's there for a reason. it prevents programs from really screwing stuff up without any user interaction. running everything as admin without any sort of user approval is a good way of breaking windows. it keeps you from accidentally deleting or moving something that really should not be touched.

A:Admin rights

Because you do not have Administrative right until you ELEVATE (See the UAC dialog) until then you run with standard user privileges to prevent system files from being changed. If you want to run something with Administrative power, right-click it then "Run as Administrator"

like i said i am very new to win 7 and have looked at my account etc but cannot see why it will not allow me to make these changes when my account is an admin account.

Any help appreciated

A:Admin rights

Hello PinkiPad,

Ever since Windows Vista and above, the administrator account is actually runs "unelevated". When you do anything that requires elevated rights, you get prompted by UAC to approve first.

This is a security feature to prevent anything from running with elevated rights (run as administrator) without you having a chance to say Yes or No from a UAC prompt first. Anything that runs elevated has full unrestricted access to everything on the PC. This is why this is such a great security feature. Yeah, it could be a pain to have to approve first, but what's a couple of seconds to approve versus not having that option and some malware is able to run elevated in the background without you ever knowing. Run as Administrator
If you still want to be king of the castle per say, then you could enable the built-in "elevated" Administrator account to log on to for this. Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
Hope this helps,

To the best of my knowledge, a standard user can't just change their settings to administrator. I'd stay away from pet's names and birthdates as passwords. Use something that can't be guessed, a non-word combination of upper case, lower case and numbers. IE: G711efx89y

Also, engage parental controls on him as well. Vista has some good control features for parents

Ok, im in a massive pickle at the moment...

I followed a tutorial on this site, allowing me to skip windows logon and go straight to the PC. I setup "netplwiz" and unchecked the "users need to ptu in a password,"

i restarted the system to see if it was working, and i got a BSOD. I restarted again, and i got another BSOD...

i booted into safe mode and unchecked that box. By accident, i also took away my only account's admin rights. I have not activated the hidden admin file, and i cant run anything as an administrator. I've tried activating the hidden admin account but i keep getting "Access denied," not even bloody system restore works!

any tips on how to fix it, or do i have to reinstall for the 5th time?

Hello Ashk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you no longer have a administrator account, you may be able to boot into Safe Mode again as the built-in Administrator account automatically. If so, then you can change your user account type back to administrator again.

If not, then you can try a repair install instead of a clean install.

A:Why does every app need admin rights?

Welcome to the Microsoft Nanny state. It's called UAC(User Account Control), and it is a right PITA for a single-user home PC. If it's any consolation , it felt even worse in Vista.

What you can do.

Make sure you are an administrator with a strong password protected account. If you don't want to have to log on all the time, go here:

start button and type netplwiz and enter (alternatively - run, control userpasswords2) to bring up user accounts dialog box

uncheck the box: users must enter a user name and password...

On the advanced tab, make sure the ctrl alt delete etc box is clear.

OK and you will be asked to confirm your password 2x.

you will also want to check the screensaver password and resume after standby password check in the advanced power settings options is behaving as you wish.

In Control panel, user accounts, change user control settings, set the slider to 'never notify', or whatever you are most comfortable with.

You may also want to create an elevated privileges command prompt shortcut. On the desktop, right-click, new, shortcut, type cmd.exe, ok. Right click the icon and under the shortcut tab select advanced and check the 'run as administrator' box, ok. you may want to change the font, layout and color options to remind you that you have superior permissions in this command window. then copy this to the start menu.

make shortcuts for your legacy applications to run as administrator in the same way, and any that need compatibility for XP, too.

Then there are the folder options, but they are generally the same as in XP to customize.

With hindsight, you may regret having bought an upgrade - a full installation with a dual boot to XP may have been a more liveable solution.

A:admin rights not accepted

You aren't the TRUE admin. For the system to tell you that you don't have sufficient privileges is because the way it's set up, you're not truly an "admin" in the true sense of the word. There is a "hidden" admin account that you'll need to activate and make your changes there and/or change the permissions on the software you're trying to run while in the Admin account so that you won't get that message anymore.

Your profile says you are using Windows XP Pro so I'm going to give you the procedure for that. You should really post this in the XP section though.

1. Go to START>RUN and type 'regedit' in the 'run' window.
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\SpecialAccounts\UserList.
3. Double-click the Administrator key in the right pane.
4. If the Administrator key doesn't exist there, right-click on the above tree in the pane, choose New, DWORD Value, and name it "Administrator" and press enter.
5. Type 1 in the "Value data" box and press enter.

When you finish that, exit out of the registry editor and restart your machine. On the next boot you should see the Administrator account visible along with all of the other accounts on the computer. You can do all of your updates and such from within that Admin account.

I hope that helps.

Good day!

We have a user on a Windows 7 machine who has to format alot of SD cards but it won't let him do it unless he's a local admin on that PC.

I have made him a local admin temporarily so that he can format them today but as he's going to be doing this alot I was wondering if there is another way that he could do this or something that I could do to allow him to do this without him being an admin on that machine.

If anyone has any ideas

Try Gparted which is a Live CD that can be loaded into RAM (You boot up the PC with it) you burn the iso to a cd using something can burn ISO images to a cd like Imgburn. You pop in the burned cd into the cd/dvd rom this will load Gparted select partition editer which is on the desktop screen. On the drop down menu top right select the sd card then select Partition then format.

this is for my brother he has lost all admin privileges and would like to get them back, how this happened he was doing a virus scan and it was taking an excessive amount of time and he wanted to stop it but it would not stop so he just turned off his computer when he restarted it booted in what he says was OTS mode with no admin rights. Is there a way he can recover admin rights???

I have been searching for some info.

My new PC doesn't exhibit the desired behaviour, but I don't know how to fix it.

On this build, when I run a command-prompt (even if I run cmd, without CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER), it starts elevated

This is nice, but what's really important is, whenever I run a batch that requires admin rights, it works.

Here's the prompt opening when I run attachtimmy

This (like many of the batch files) requires admin rights, and works, as if cmd.exe has been set to run in admin mode.

On both UAC is disabled (lowered to lowest setting), so I don't get pestered for permission...

I've looked at local sec policy, and built-in admin rights elevation, but it looks untouched

any ideas?

I know you can add "run as admin", but this is not the default action for batch files (on both systems default action is open).

A:Setting up admin rights

UPDATE: I've checked the reg for instances of the "Layers" key, to see if this is how I've done it... no instances of "runasadmin" for cmd.exe

(tempted to do this if it just works... but would be really nice to ascertain how it's currently being achieved)

any processMonitor jedi's out there confirm if this could be determined using THE analysis tool?

this page speculates lots on why it "must be like this"... but, as none are the case for me, I assume it doesn't cover every scenario.

another mystery.

I have a XP harddrive with a dead boot sector. I daisy chained it to my Win7 machine but the My Documents folder is now in a .sv\incomplete folder. I want to apply admin rights to the entire directory so that I can access the data. Win7 security will not allow me to apply those rights to the entire folder. I can however do it file by file. Ain't no way I am going to do that if I can help it. Any ideas?



A:applying admin rights

It won't matter. Administrators will not be able to access that folder, either. Only the owner can access a user's docs folder.

Hi People,
I'm new here and a newbie to the computer world. I have a question for anyone who can help. I just bought a new Dell which came loaded with XP Pro SP3. It says I am the administrator but when I go into Group policies to make a bandwidth change the templates are not there. The folder I need is missing from the tree. Any ideas as to why this might be so. I created a user account for my self as the administrator and I have full access rights to do everything except this.
Anyone have a clue?:

A:[SOLVED] Admin rights

Make sure you are running Pro and not Home as Home will not have these settings. Next Boot into Safe Mode and log in as Administrator. If you do not know the password, try leaving it blank. Then you should be able to access those settings.

But I can't remember what changes I made.

Can anyone advise me on this please?

I run Windows 7 and Office 2007 and my user have admin rights, but when I need to disable plugins to Outlook I get error message that I need admin rights.....

A:Admin rights problem

The trick is to actually run the program (such as outlook) as an admin process by right clicking and choosing the Run as Adminsitrator option. Depending on your UAC settings you may have to give confirmation.

Disabling UAC completely is another option, but not one that I would advocate (I'd actually normally say turn it up!) since it reduces the security for your computer.

I got a batch script which needs Admin privileges.
For example it installs some Programmes or move/copy files to/from System directories.

So on Windows 7 (and Vista) I can say "Run as" and I got a Message like "are you sure allowing ... bla" OK/Cancel?
But how I can get arround this MSG-Box?
How can I place the Admin Name/PW in the Batchfile? (a runas cmd i allready tried seems to don't work)

A:Admin rights for batch

As far as I am aware you are asking the impossible., or at least the stupendously difficult

You can however turn off UAC prompts completely so you just have to do Run as Administrator and it's done.

Another neat trick is start a program from within an elevated program (such as a dock); all programs opened using an elevated program themselves are automatically elevated .
