"Unable to elevate to admin rights" error, when admin user

Q: "Unable to elevate to admin rights" error, when admin user

I am trying to download Adobe Digital Editions and I keep receiving the error message

Unable to elevate to administrative rights, error 786

I am the admin! I have turned off the password, I have right clicked on the program and chosen 'run as admin'-then nothing happens.
Any help would be appreciated

Preferred Solution: "Unable to elevate to admin rights" error, when admin user

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.)

Try this:

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.

I am experiencing issues with my small domain setup. Windows Server 2012 R2 and windows 10 PRO domain attached PC's

Any users who are not a member of the Administrators group cannot login with their domain account (A device attached to the system is not functioning.) or access their file shares (invalid folder) even if they have been granted access to the file-shares.
However if I add them to the administrators group everything works fine with no issues.
I have not made any changes to group policy recently and have no idea what has changed to stop regular users from being able to do anything.

It is strange because there is nothing wrong with devices attached to the PC and the folders are definitely valid. It is all dependent on which account is trying to access.
Please let me know if you need further info.

Good day all,

I've done a quick search (here and google) but can't find a solution for the following:

Windows 8 pro: I have a user account with admin rights. It used to work fine till one day, after rebooting, I had no tiles in the start view. I ran chkdsk and it seems to have fixed the problem but now when I run any application as "Run as administrator" I get:
Windows cannot find '[The exe]'. Make sure you've typed the name correctly, then try again.

If, however, I run the same app as normal and it works - thus the exe exists and there is no problem with the app itself. (Also check in the file system)

If I create a new user with admin rights I get the same issue.

(The other old user with admin rights are working fine.)

Where do I start looking for the problem?

A:User with admin rights can't "Run as administrator" any mo

You could try running:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

&
sfc /scannow

Both need to be run in an administrator command prompt.

Both will take an hour maybe to finish.
Maybe half an hour each.

Hopefully a simple question for some. I have a user who currently does NOT have Admin rights, but I need to find out if they had admin rights in the passed. I.E Someone gave them the rights to do something and then removed them.

Basically we are having difficulty getting some software to work without Admin Rights to do the initial install, but i've been told its possible to install the software without Admin Rights but I can't see it. They tried to prove that they did it on one users machine ( who is working fine) but i'm convinced they must have given them Admin rights to do the install and then possibly removed them after.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:How do you tell if a user "had" Admin rights?

If the program was installed to Program Files folder, then you must have had admin rights to do so. Because that folder is not modifiable without the right.

There should be events logged in Event Viewer when the user was elevated to admin status.

I am going 'round & 'round with this issue. I log on as limited user account for security. However, when I am on that acct, I cannot copy files to the external HP drive - I have to switch over to the admin user account to do so. In order to use the limited account for this operation, I have read that you should disable simple file sharing, (on admin acct), then rt clik on the file u want to copy - this then opens a menu with security tab where you are supposed to be able to give full control to the limited acct for that file. My admin acct that brings up this menu has those boxes to check grayed out. Also, do you have to rt click and give full permission for any file that you want to copy? (once you have this all figured out) - Seems a bit cumbersome. Any ideas anyone?? Thanks.

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

After upgrading Windows 8 to 8.1 - my standard user does no longer have administration rights.

in computer administration ->local user and Groups - the properties for the user shows that the user belongs the Group administrators.

However when I access the user account in the control panel the user shows up as "standard" and I cannot change that while logged in as standard user.

I have tried logging in as Administrator (using the built in administrator) - but here I am also unable to change the setting of the standard user from "standard" to "Administrator" - the "change account type" button
is greyed out and cannot be clicked.

I have tried everything I can think of, read all I could find on the net - but to no avail.

befor in xp i used to have developer tools and was able to do pritty much anything i needed to do which was great

now with windows 7 if i want to install something i have to right click the exe and click "Run with admin rights(audited)"

now im trying to install some software for my G15 keyboard

i downloaded the installer and ran with admin rights
this gives the installer one time admin rights. only problem is the installer initates another EXE which is hidden inside it somewhere that trys to run as well. this program hasnt asked for the rights so the PC shuts it down. the main installer then fails because one off its elements hasnt installed

any ideas?

A:admin rights - problems with "sub" exe

Something else is going on. A sub process runs at the same level of its parent, unless the application choices to belay that, an executable running in a high process that runs a sub process is at the same level. The only way for this not to happen is if the application makes the decision to run the sub process in a lower level. Windows does not make that decision.

Hi,

Does anyone know how to stop the attached alerts? I got this one, just for renaming the C drive label, if I click Continue it works fine, but if I am logged in as an Admin user, that should be enough for me, so can we get rid of this alert?

I don't want to use the built in Administrator user, so I think I need to "elevate" my admin user account, but can't see how to do this for Windows 10 Pro.

Any help would be much appreciated.

A:Elevate Windows 10 Pro Admin User

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Security and Maintenance and set the UAC, (user Account Control), to the second from the top, which will slightly reduce your security settings but will remove the most annoying of the prompts.

You can of course set this to any of the available settings but anything lower than the second highest will reduce the in-built security to a level that can cause issues

Hi there, welcome to Seven Forums
It seems the Administrator account has been activated within Windows 7.
Follow the link to a tutorial below to disable the 'admin' account:

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

As you have not set any restrictions, it is most likely a user of the PC in question has activated this account beforehand and has thrown you off as you have never seen it before Just follow the tutorial to disable it and tell us if the PC tries to login automatically onto another account. Good luck!

Dom

EDIT: If you are to use the command prompt method please bear in mind what is said:
"NOTE: If you had previously renamed the built-in "Administrator" account's name, then you will need to substitute administrator in the command below with the new name instead."
So that 'new name' may be 'admin'. If the account is still there just try and use the default name 'administrator'.

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 everybody, I'm experiencing a weird problem with Windows 8 Pro x64. Although I'm on the only user account on Windows (that is the administrator one), it looks like I don't have the Admin privileges and need to manually request them each time.

For instance, when I install some programs (e.g., VLC, Deamon tools, Dropbox...), I often receive errors similar to "Windows could not elevate", or "Windows doesn't have sufficient rights to install from a temporary directory". This is easily fixed by right-clicking the executable and selecting "Run as administrator", but is this working as intended? I have another Windows 8 installation where it just works without this workaround.

Do I need to change some settings?

A:Administrator user needs to manually "elevate" each time

Hi,

1. Please post the exact error messages you're getting (hint: you can Ctrl+C when the dialog is active and then Ctrl+V).
2. Does the problem ever occur when you elevate intentionally? E.g. when you type cmd on the start screen and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter.

Hi,

Its pretty difficult for us to suggest something since we can't verify the authenticity of the request. The best bet here is for him to remember the password and pass it on to you - hopefully he can do that soon.

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.

Thanks, Shimin4tor

A:Installing rights to standard user or prevent an admin user something

a) This may be possible in theory but it would not be easy. Don't go there.
b) All administrators are equal. Any restrictions you impose can be undone by another.
The only practical way to do what you want is to encrypt the users folders. Windows doesn't care about user folders so that is not an issue.

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.

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 have been working on setting up an old PC basically just to play & organize music for me. I put Windows 2000 Pro on it, and was playing around with the group policy editor.

I made a 2nd user for the system, and planned on lowering the rights of that user so that other people could use it and I wouldn't have to worry about anything happening to the computer.

My problem is that when I am logged on as the admin and I change the policy, it affect not only the other users set up on the computer, but the admin also! This isn't what I want at all!! I want to know how to deny normal users (users, power users, etc...) the right to do many things without affecting the admin account.

Thanks

Local policies affecet everyone that uses the computer. There is nothing within windows that can change that unless you are running a Domain environment.

There are a few pieces of software that can help you with this though.
If you were running Windows XP you could use Doug Knox's XP security console.

There is also the PAC security Tool.

A:Removing Admin rights from a user account

I assume that you were working from within his account in moving the shortcuts, and gave the password to let you access folders in your account. The result is that the file permissions on those folders have changed to let him in whenever he wants. If this is correct, you should be able to reset the permissions on each of those folders using this article in the Techguy Library of Knowledge:
http://library.techguy.org/wiki/File_Permissions

By the way if you have Windows 7, you may be able to use the Windows Parental Controls to help keep him out of mischief.

Trying to delete files on a CD? Surely you jest!!! A CD is a read only device, you can NOT delete anything off of a CD.
How did you install Windows 10 without making yourself the Administrator. I've installed W-10 at least a dozen times so far and I've always come up as the ONE and ONLY Administrator.
But still, I have to install and use "Grant Admin Full Control" to be able to 'Take Ownership' of certain files and folders.
Start here:

A:user with non-admin rights can't initialize drive

If you have the drive hooked up and you initialize it, what is stopping you from formatting it for them to begin with? It's of little use till it is formatted, a quick format takes less time than informing a user they need to format there newly initialized drive. Or am I missing something?

I do not want to grant him admin rights to the laptop, but cannot find any way to grant just that particular program to run as admin on his login...

Can someone help? Its a Vista Home version of Windows...

A:Admin rights for a single program to standard user

Welcome
You can give this a try and hope. The run as adminstrtor feature was put there by the software and not Vista.
You can turn off the UAC
User Account Control (UAC)

Then right click on the software, probably properties, then advanced (or compatibility tab). In Compatibility or advanced tab. check run as administrator
Let me know how that works.

When you right click on the software, type in the software name in the search function by stat button, and then right click when it pops up. Do not click on any shortucuts.

For smart music rather than advanced, it might be under compatiblity tab.

If you do disable UAC, all Administrator users must exercise caution. The UAC is a warning that changes will be made to the system and not just to user account

Not only that but also there's nowhere to "type" the password in the UAC prompt.

I recently migrated a bunch of files and folders from my NAS to an internal (2nd) hard drive on my laptop. At first, all those folders had a gold padlock overlay. I removed those locks by following the instructions at:

Lock Icon on Files and Folders - Remove in Windows 7

However, I'm still encountering access issues when I try to save files into those migrated folders or move any of those folders (see the attached screenshots), even though I'm logged in as a user with admin rights.

I guess I haven't completely taken ownership of these files/folders? I believe I know how to do that on an individual basis, but there are hundreds of folders involved and I'd like to do a bulk edit that removes these security restrictions in one action.

Is that possible?

I have been looking for this answer for 2 days and can not find anyone who has had similair problem.

THere are 2 accounts Administrator and Kenmystro/administrator. I have the password for both and can access both. win 7 Ultimate Hp8510.
I have already selected all user permissions and taken ownership in every box I could find for Kenmystro/admin. the UAC is at minimum and the security centre is off. Run as admin on right click does not help.
It does not matter which of the 2 accounts I log into when I try install certain HP software(Maintenance
& some drivers) it says I do not have admin privileges.

This is driving me nuts can anyone help??

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

A:of win7, admin rights, admin accounts, and real admin accounts

I don't know what your problem is. To make another administrator account - Start - Control panel - User Account - 
Manage another account - Create a new account - Give it a name - put a check mark for Administrator - 
click - Create Account.

Greetings,

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.

Any thoughts?

As for disabling the UAC if only you are using it while you fish around then no it will not affect security per se'.

Just wondering is it is possible to leave admin status on a user account while removing the ability to make new accounts. Alternatively could one make a standard account have admin style(ie. altering files, running files as an admin/in admin mode, etc.) rights except the creation of new accounts? Just wondering if that is possible in Windows vanilla or with other software.

If this is answered elsewhere please just post link.

Thank you very much for your time.

A:Custom User Restrictions(ideally Admin rights -new account creation)

It's not possible.

Administrator account are, by design, capable of doing anything, that's the idea of having them in the first place. There are a few ways of imposing restrictions on admin accounts, but being an admin means that the user can simply lift them himself.

The alternative you propose is quite possible, within the limits of normal user accounts. Any account can manage the files within his own profile at will, and change all his personal settings, but nothing else. To perform admin-only tasks, he can use UAC to elevate, where he must provide an admin user/password to gain his privileges temporarily (to be true, it's the admin who actually do that, but within a standard user session, this being the scenario where UAC shines).

What's your idea about this? What do you want to achieve?

Hi All.

I'm running Windows 8.1 (standard/ home edition) and can't download a couple .exe files. I get "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this folder". errors. I'm the only user on this computer and have administrator access.

The file resides on mediafire and via my ipad I was able to manage to transfer it to dropbox, but I still get the same error. The filename (partial) is created but no further downloading is done.

I can't take ownership of the file-- it doesn't exist on my computer yet.
I can't change the local security policy (I understand this is only available in Win 8 Pro version).
UAC is already disabled as much as I can figure (via the slider set to never notify).

Short of setting up a super admin account (would this even work?), can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?

thanks in advance,

Frank

In Win8 Pro x64 (and now with 8.1) shortly after installing Windows I couldn't run any installer from a web browser or by just double-clicking the file. I have to right-click and "Run as administrator"

The error messages vary but they all are variations on a theme of unable to access something.

I usually have UAC off but the UAC setting doesn't matter. I am an administrator. I am using Start8 and ModernMix if it matters. I've Googled and found nothing that worked but I don't remember exactly what I've tried.

A:Installers cannot elevate, have to run as admin

This is how it is designed in Windows 8/8.1, the UAC is never complete disabled.

The only account which does not desire a password is the built-in administrator.

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

Please find more information about the UAC here:

User Account Control (UAC) - Change Settings in Windows 8

It is not recommended to run the built-in Administrator and will come with limitation for example; not being able to use store apps.

I have created two new user accounts. The first I set up as a standard account, logged on, did a few things, then logged off, logged on as my administrator account and editted the account to be an administrator. When I log back on as this account, it appears that the user still does not have administrator privileges even though under the user it says "Administrator". For example, the UAC control does not appear when you click on "Change User Account Control Settings". Also, trying to install software where the installer asks for admin privileges fails. However, the second account created started as an adminstrator account and exhibits neither of these problems.

I just haven't seen anything in posts about this and wonder what the difference is and if there is anything that "second class" administrator user can do to become a "first class" administrator.

Does UAC control display a confirmation question? this is the case for administrator accounts
Does UAC control ask for username/password? This is the case for standard accounts
Change the account back (just for testing) to standard account. Does it ask for username/password when changing system settings?
system built-in admin account has admin rights always
manually made account with admin rights has only admin rights after you allow it in the UAC control popup.
manually made account without admin rights has only admin rights after you allow it in the UAC control popup (enter a admin's username and password).
That's how it should work

I am admin ( WIN 7 Pro 64 computer 4 years old): In admin user default account, any and ALL open, and .exe functions denied.

CMD right click 'run as admin' (net user admin etc.) has no effect. Checking all folders I show FULL permission. Right click 'run as admin' has no effect on any file.

Created new USER with ADMIN functions and all works in that account.

Q: How can I trouble shoot my normal ADMIN account (it has all of my 1000s of folders, programs etc.)
Q: Or how can I transfer all of my doc to my new user internally? (Without backup to external drive etc)

This happened after a Microsoft standard update weeks ago. I tried restore, but restore fails. By now I have done much on the computer and restore not an option.
I have not been able to open or run any program files.

A:Admin User Error5. CMD solutions failed. New User with ADMIN works

Wow. 2 days and not a single suggestion or reply?

Is this a really a simple common error? Is that why no replies? Or is there no help for it?

I searched the forums for hours over 2 days reading multiple posts and possible solutions and came up empty. Nothing applicable to my situation.

I have tried:
1. System restore. It always fails, even in SAFE mode or REPAIR mode.
2. Run as administrator (Both from right click and from CMD)
3. Sharing all folders (Although this ADMIN account has all privileges/permissions as it is anyway)
This created a 2nd ADMIN account. Don't know why.
4. Reset all privileges back to default settings.

Have not tried to re-install windows as I don't have a copy of Win 7. Plus I would like to avoid the reality of reinstalling so many programs and files.

Right now when the Original Admin user tries to run a .exe, I get a "Setup was unable to create the directory "...etc..." Error 5 access denied.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. It would at least get me moving trying some things. Thank you.

Have you tried setting the Guest up as Power Users? For the USB drive are you talking about thumb drives or flash drives? I ended up changing the drive letter (after plugging the flash into the USB) to X (you could use whichever letter you don't currently use) because students and teachers were having problems accessing their thumb drives. This solved the problem for us.
Good luck!

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.

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).

Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!

Edit: I fixed it. Turns out I didn't let the scans complete and that they really needed to be run from within the original user account, not a secondary one I had created after the infection. I was able to run the software from within the account by right-clicking on the shortcuts and then clicking Run as Admin. After letting the scans go all the way through, the problem was fixed.

I have a virus from virus protector which shuts down desktop and the administrator account. I can get access into the other user account but it needs an administrator account which i cannot access. Is there a way to get access to the administator account or to download a virus removal that does not need approval. Any help would be greatly appreciated. many thanks

My laptop only has one user account, mine, and its an admin. I tried messing aroudn with Homegroup but i turned it off and now i cannot do anything with my documents, i get the error "You require permissions from MYLAPTOP/TomHart etcetc..." but that user (as far as i know) is me.

1) How can i find out if thats my account or if for some reason mines changed/my documents owner has changed

2) Anyone know how i could fix this?

I tried using CMD running as admin and used TAKEOWN on the file but i still get the same error.

Im 95% sure its something to do with Homegroup cause before that it was fine, now its messed up.

Any help/advice appreciated

Windows can run certain .exe files that were before this started happening, but any installer or program that could help fix is broken. I can run regedit, but it doesnt fix anything.

I just spent 30$ on a game, but it doesnt let me connect to single player or online because it cant find battle eye. please help, i dont want to spend 1500$ for a new gaming computer. Thanks

A:Windows 7 "custom views" how to clear admin events log?

HiThe Administrative Events is a custom view and compilation of all the critical, warning, and other important events, from certain other logs in the Event Viewer. You would need to clear all of those other logs to clear the Administrative Events list.The easiest way to do this is to note the Source name of the event in the Administrative Events, expand the Applications and Service Logs\Microsoft\Windows Logs.Look for the folder with the Source name. Expand that folder, right click each of the logs under that folder and select the Clear option.Hope this helps.
Thank You for using Windows 7

Hi, im running vista home premium. I am from Norway so excuse me for any bad grammar.(bad excuse:P)

anyways, i have encountered a problem, it goes like this, you probably know that sometimes you download old programs on vista, that doesn't work unless you right-click on the .exe and choose: "run as administrator"(sorry if that is not the exact phrase, because my PC is running Norwegian Mode.(stupid school PC :P ))
but i recently encountered the problem that when i right-clicked an .exe file it was no "run as administrator" option! and im quite desperate to get this program running, and it quits every-time i start it up again, i read on the program source site, that to run this exact program you had to push the "run as administrator" button.. so please, please help me...

A:Way to circumvent admin Permissions "issues" with fresh install?

Do not so those steps - it will cause problems like infinite loops via virtualized folders.

Zone Alarm has caused problems for others using W7. The firewall that comes with W7 should be enough.

Windows 7 Home x32 - IE9 - The connection tab at the bottom of the dialogue box states "some settings are managed by your system administrator" and when I click on the LAN button, all options are grayed out.

1.) I have a administrator account.
2.) This version does not support GPEDIT.msc
3.) "control panel" registry key is empty under policies in both HKLM and HKCU
3.) Possible remnants from malware

So, here is what I want to accomplish:

1.) Remove the nag
2.) Restore the functionality of the LAN settings.

Hello I am running windows x I have a password for my main account which is an admin account When I enter the password and hit enter the quot Welcome quot screen "welcome" minute only admin at 2 hang on account. screen, stares at me for about minutes before going to the desktop I can not figure out why this happens I have tried the quot don't use a solid color background quot fix I have tried unplugging all unnecessary USB devices I have unchecked ALL of the items in startup services I created a new user account that is not an admin account and has no password When I select this account at startup the quot welcome quot 2 minute hang at "welcome" screen, only on admin account. screen only appears for - seconds and then goes to the desktop Why would my admin account hang so long on the welcome screen but my other use account does not Both accounts have the same drivers and applications installed Any thoughts I've been through a hundred forums and have tried all the usual fixes with no positive results

A:2 minute hang at "welcome" screen, only on admin account.

What happens when you run your admin account without the password?

What can cause the Administrator account to be denied access to files? I thought the whole point of the admin account was to have access to all files "just in case" if for no other reason.


The situation (you don't HAVE to read past this point:)

I awoke this morning to a BSoD caused by idechndr.sys. Uninstalling Intel Application Accelerator seems to have solved the problem.

Before that, however, I could only load via Save Mode through the Administrator account (which makes sense), but when I tried accessing the "Documents and Settings" files for my personal account through the Admin, I was denied access. The folder appeared to be empty (but with access denied, that makes sense as well.)

Solving the BSoD fixed this oddity as well (and all of my personal account files/settings were still there.) But how or why would this sort of thing happen?

A:[SOLVED] Curiosity: &quot;Access Denied.&quot; to Admin?

When you are logged in as Admin, you don't always have access to the files under another user account - Administrator is a separate account. It's like you and I sharing a computer, I don't have access to your files and you don't have access to mine. I think you might be able to view the other user's files if both user names aren't password protected, I don't remember off hand.

Hi all,

I've recently noticed that when running many Windows programs with Administrator privileges that the UAC window that pops up displays the publisher as Unknown.

I can confirm from another PC that in the case of Command Prompt the publisher should display as Microsoft Corporation.

What could be causing this? Have I altered a Windows setting that resulted in this behaviour or is this indicative of malware or remote influence?

My router is password protected and I regularly run full system scans with a reputable, subscription-based anti-virus.

If this isn't related to windows settings and incorrect configurations then what could be causing this?

Thanks for your advice.

Did you run updates just before it happened?

A:CTRL + ALT + DEL gives message "system admin as disabled..."

Hi, Log looks OK, but Hijackthis does not show all malware....

What is the antivirus program you use?

If you don't have one, you need to get one....there are several decent free antivirus programs available. You do have Ewido...for spyware, that is not what I am referring to.

You should have a full antivirus program running.
If this is the fault of going back with System Restore, then you need to reinstall the antivirus...let us know.

Just tried to save change in a program I was working in when a pop-up box appeared telling me the "system administrator wouldn't allow this change". Lost all my work Checked under my computer/control panel/users and passwords and there is now:

user name group

administrator administrators
guest guests
jan (me) administrators

every option is grayed out and I can't change anything. I don't remember ever seeing anyone there but me. Can anyone tell me what happened and does someone have access to my system?
Thanks,
Jan
 

A:Afraid I have "guests" with access to sys admin functions.

try logging on as admin,when you get in turn off the guest account you may not have given yourself admin rights
to log in as admin
hold the ctrl-alt key and press del twice
this will bring up the admin log on window

I have only one user account on my laptop (Windows 7) and naturally it is an administrator account.
But when trying to install new software, more often than not, I get a message saying I need to be logged in under an administrator account to continue. Not always but far too often.
For example, today I was simply trying to run my printer setup which I have done at least twice before and it tells me I need to be logged in as an admin.
I have logged out and back in and rebooted repeatedly to no avail.

UAC - try disabling it then do what you need to do: Turn User Account Control on or off

Turn back on when done if you want.

My system was doing fine, until I downloaded a free trail of Kaspersky. After the download things in my system started not to read certain programs examples:

~WHEN I TRY TO GO TO MY SYSTEM RESTORE THE WINDOW POPS UP BUT THE INFORMATION IS NOT DISPLAYED

~WHEN I LOG INTO YAHOO, WHEN IMing I CAN NOT SEE THE WORDS IN THE WINDOW AFTER SOME ONE HAS ENTERED TEXT (i have uninstalled and reinstalled this program)

Basically anything that i try to get into that needs "ADMINISTRATOR" permission its saying "ACCESS DENIED ERROR OCCURRED WHLE ATTEMPTING TO CHANGE A SERVICE. YOU MAY NEED TO LOG ON USING AND ADMIN ACCOUNT TO MAKE THE SPECIFIED CHANGES"

I think there is some spyware that is not being detected or something..... CAN SOOOME ONEEEEEEEE PLEASE HELP *smiles*

As a general rule of thumb, is it best to install all new software using the "run as administrator" option?

A:Should I use the "run as admin" option when I install new software?

yes if you trust the program you are going to install...
