Admin rights to local machine

Q: Admin rights to local machine

I have a windows 2000 network that someone previously setup. I am having problem logging into one specific machine. The account does not seem to have admin rights to the local machine. I logged in as domain adming on the machine and went to control panel->user and added the domian account to the local admionistrators group but it still has a problem. Where do I look from here. I tried this account on another machine and it worked fine.

Preferred Solution: Admin rights to local machine

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 http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

What type of network is it?

Peer-To-Peer, or are you using a domain?

Folks - At my new job we are running about 16 PC's on a network and app.'s like outlook and some specific chapter 13 software..My question is.......if I sit down to a PC login as admin and start MS updates, then cannot make it make to the PC to complete them, can the user of that PC just login as them with their password and continue working normally, or can't they just cold reboot the PC then login and every thing's fine??? It is my understanding that if they return to their PC and see that an admin was logged in, they just needed to change it to their user name and password and everything's fine...?? YES or NO ???

Thanks

A:Assign Local Admin Rights without local Admin Group

You should be able to right-click on the exe file, then choose properties. On the "Compatibility" tab, there should be a checkbox for "Run as administrator", which you can check (enable) and save settings.

A:My Kingdom for Local Admin Rights for My Users

The way to do it is to login to the computer with domain admin permissions (that's often the administrator account on the domain controller), manage local computer, local users and groups, administrators group, add, and choose the user that's supposed to have local admin privileges. Click OK for everything and you're good. A method I've used before is to create a group for each computer, add that group to the local administrators group, then you can add or remove a user from the groups as necessary. You can find out how to do it with group policy here --> http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_21577234.html which is the top result in a google search for "how to grant local admin domain". I can't say I'm impressed with your searching skills unless this doesn't answer your question.

Hi NM,

If your the domain administrator, make sure the existing domain group policy (designed for XP or Vista) is not being applied to your Win7 machine as its about the only thing can be reverting your permissions.

Hi guys,

This is driving me crazy. I just implemented roaming profiles, but now my users are having issues because some of our applications require local admin rights. Also, we allow them to install software as needed.

Is there a way I can give the users Local Administrator rights either using a logon script or any other way?

Hi all.

I may be about to leave my workplace on an amicable basis. Rather than trying to delete everything on my machine (Dell Optiplex GX1, 500 Mhz P3) I would like to simply format my C drive. I have been led to believe that data can be recovered if simply deleted but not if a drive is formatted--please correct me if I'm wrong--I know miracles can be done with recovering data. However, we are on an NT 4.0 network and everything is clamped down tight.

The reason is that I don't want anyone to take any liberties with anything on the machine.

I searched around here for a while and did not see a solution.

All help appreciated--even if it is just to say it is impossible.

Best Regards,

Bob

Can I remove the local admin rights and just make them a standard user? If they are set as a standard user will the Windows Updates still install without entering an admin password??

I have discovered that there is a difference between the original local "Administrator" account and my (local) admin account. For instance my admin account cannot add a new user, whereas "Administrator" can.

I absolutely do not want an MS online account - I want to have a local Admin account (not "Administrator" itself) but with the same rights as Administrator, for example being able to add a new user.

This was possible in previous versions of Windows - can it still be achieved and if so, how?

A:Give Local account with Admin rights, same access as "Administrator"?`

You need to add your new local account to the administrators group. To do this log in with your original Administrator account. Then open an elevated command prompt (right click on start and select Command Prompt (admin).

Then type: net localgroup administrators "UserName" /add

where UserName is the name of your new local account.

You can check which users belong to the various groups with these commands:
net localgroup guests
net localgroup users
net localgroup administrators

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)?

Hi

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.

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.

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.

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.

Info:
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).

We have a script that installs a program (Office 2007). It then imports some registry file settings. It imports HKLM and HKCU. We have noticed that if this is installed as a local admin, the settings seem to take if we scan the box as a local admin(we are running a security scan to determine this (the security scan checks multiple gpo's supposed to be set by the program/reg imports). If we scan as a domain admin, the system doesn't seem to show they are set. We believe we see the opposite if it's installed as a domain admin. For the domain scan they are set, for the local scan they are not. Does this have to do with how you can change registry entries as a domain admin versus local admin? The registry settings are imported with reg.exe import filename.reg like commands in the .bat script. Any ideas are helpful.

Hi,
I am working on a 2012 ADDS based network and I have the following requirement.
I want to create a local administrator user account on the local domain computers (Win XP, 7 and 8) which will have full access on the PC but not the permission to edit other local administrator accounts.
Please advise how I can achieve this.

Thanks in advance,
Andreas

A:local admin account with no permit to edit other admin accounts

Local admin account by definition has access to everything and even if it doesn't it can take ownership and give itself the rights. In other words i am not sure that you can achieve what you
are trying to do.



I would suggest create a single shared local admin account and give it your desktop admins, change the password every 60-90 days to keep it more secure. This is common practice in many
organizations.

SOLUTION: download the setup.exe for ADE, not using the flash install version.

Before you run it, right click on it and check "run as administrator" under the compatability tab. Also under the general tab I clicked on "unblock," which might have made a difference.

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?

thanks for your help.

A:Admin rights

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.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

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.

Occasionally I need admin rights to do something. I've never set a pass as admin. How do I set myself as admin? No one else uses my laptop. Win 7 Home, 64-bit.

I've been running Windows since 3.1 and don't ever remember being asked to prove I'm admin.

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,
Shawn

Hi,
I am new to this forum, seems to be loads of good info. I tried a search but
could not seem to find what I need. Hope you can help.

I have 4 machines all running xp, all are wireless networked, and files can be transfered etc providing the files on each machine are shared.

How can I setup 1 machine to have admin rights to the other 3, so I can use remote shut down and things like that.

Thanks for your help

As a total novice at Vista and a new machine purchased I am keen to keep my son from getting inside this pc. He is always changing various settings without asking so I have tried to set his account to Standard User but he still seems to be getting past that to set himself as an Administrator. I have a password set on my account as Administrator so I do not understand how he is getting past this security. He is proficient at working pc's so when I ask him how he does he just says "I am good". Does he have a way of bypassing the user setting I have given him or does he know my password if the latter then easy to fix but if he has a way to bypass this then what can I do to stop it if anything? Any sensible advice would be much appreciated

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

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.

Hi,

I have recently bought an Acer laptop with Windows Vista and last night I was trying to install AVG Free and Sygate Personal Firewall. I was able to install AVG alright but when I tried to run the set-up for Sygate I got a message something along the lines of "you must have local administrator right to install/uninstall this program" - this action has been aborted.

I am the only user of this brand new computer and I have set my user account as Administrator. I was able to install AVG, Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Office but why can't I install Sygate?

Any ideas? Any advice will be much appreciated.

A:local administrator rights

When you change the groups for an user, either add or remove from them, for the effects to take effect that user must logoff and then login again.
So if you're adding a user to the administrators group, and the user is logged on, he must close session and login again.
Restart of the whole system is not required in any case.

Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.alternate download linkNote: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:Double-click on the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current versionRead the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.The Express scan will automatically begin.

Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and uncheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.Important!

My brother thought by logging into his Microsoft account on our main computer would be very helpful. He then got admin rights.

However, when making him just a standard user from admin, the account we still have on our main desktop is only a standard user as well and i forgot to change it to an admin.

In the cmd prompt but that the slower way but for the people who have this problem and cant do it via msconfig, start in safe mode with cmd prompt and type in this

"C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"

I recently restored my laptop to factory settings. I entered my microsoft account to make a user, and this was an admin. I created another user, went to control panel, and made my first account standard, and my new account admin.

The account I changed to standard still acts like an admin; as it does not ask for a password when I want to install or change something. Can anyone help me out? I want my standard account to ask for an admin password.

In the atachment I have provided, it is shown that there is an option with the admin shield. Now when I click that, the options are run and cancel. It does not require an admin password.

hi!

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.

Hi,

Is this a work laptop? If so, the rules of the forum prevent us from helping you overcome the security policies that your system administrator has put in place. In this case, you are better off asking the administrator to grant you the rights to run this software, or to provide you with the administrator name and password.

A:Lost admin rights

Hi, welcome to TSF!

Download combofix.exeSave it to your desktop.
Double click combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.
Note:In case you already used Combofix previously, please delete the version you are having and redownload it again, because Combofix is being updated everyday.
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall.
Do not post the ComboFix-quarantined-files.txt - unless I ask you to.
If your Antivirus software is detecting combofix or a part of it as a virus, please choose to ignore it as Antivirus products cannot determine the good/bad use of some softwares embedded in combofix.

Over the last couple of weeks Kaspersky has been alerting me to trojans that it has told me it dealt with. This evening I got an alert again saying it had dealt with trojan.html.fraud.d. Windows also updated itself this evening.

My PC now seems to have lost admin rights (I only found this out when I went to try and use Nero and it told me I couldn't burn). I am set up as a computer administrator. The log in and shut down has also changed 'look'.

Can anyone please help me and determine if I am infected, how I can get my PC back working normally again and have admin rights!!

I am using XP Media Edition.

Thanks in advance.

I have formatted my laptop completely and re-installed Windows XP professional on the laptop I ve had all sorts of problems though getting Windows to recognise my account as having admin rights In USERS in the control panel it shows the account as being quot Computer Administrator quot And if I look in quot MANAGE quot system settings it shows my account as a member of the administrators group Yet when I try and install some software I get the quot Run As quot box asking for details of won't having admin XP as rights recognise me an account with admin rights I thought at first that the account may be corrupt so I created a new account give it admin rights and tried under that and it eventually worked But the problem is slowly coming back leading me to XP won't recognise me as having admin rights think that there is something wrong with the system This XP won't recognise me as having admin rights is a brand new install of XP so surely there can t be anything wrong I think some program installers XP won't recognise me as having admin rights maybe have checks for admin rights before installing and for some reason XP is not communicating this correctly to the installer For instance I have an old version of Xara Webstyle that I m trying to install but it won t install correctly even thohg it has worked fine in the past Is anybody able to help at all

A:XP won't recognise me as having admin rights

It sounds to me it might be a bad install of XP (hey it happens) so what i would do is backup your data and do a reinstall.

So I'm a highschool student in a laptop school A vast majority of students are having problems with simple things through user error and the admins who I happen to be on pretty good terms with are tired of it SO they've decided to revoke everyone's administrative rights to their computers and make them normal users For most they wont notice the difference others will complain a Save Them! Me Help - Rights Admin little and then aquiesc etc But that's not the Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them! problem My Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them! small Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them! group of - friends or so LAN often and use admin access on a semi-frequent basis not for anything terribly technical but I would like to preserve my admin access Is there any way -any- way that I can recover these after they batch the computers They are removing them on FRIDAY which is sigh Tomorrow So If there would be a workaround circumvention recovery reassignment whatever option I could utilize I would need it very quickly and hopefully in a distributable reproducable fashion If anyone could help out that would be absolutely wonderful I've got a few ideas mostly involving the command line but I dont know nearly enough about it to make sure that this would work so I implore you to lend your collective minds to the task and find a solution and I will bend to your knowledge I'm here for the express purpose of deferring to all of your brilliant minds Thankyou Matt - Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici

A:Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them!

Sorry Matt...this is your School's decision to revoke your admin rights on their computers. We can't help you work around this.
