Admin privileges in batch script

Q: Admin privileges in batch script


I wrote a Script that uninstalls an application, move some files and install an Application.
The Script is working if I start it as Admin (right click - run as Admin ...).
Everything works fine.

But I want to have it working without the "run as".
The script is only used in a separated Test system,
so there is no problem if the Admin user name and password is in the script.
(also link wouldn't work, should also work if it moves to another station within the test domain)

Is there a way to manage that?

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.)

A: Admin privileges in batch script

Batch command runas with a standard trick
echo password | runas
it is NOT going to work, because the password should be entered manually.

If you do not mind clicking Yes in UAC window you can use Elevate.exe
With it you won't need writing password anywhere
"C:\yourFOLDER\elevate.exe" "C:\yourScriptFOLDER\yourScript.bat"
would be enough to start script with admin privileges (still need to click YES on UAC window).

Hi Friends ... I have this laptop that has been given to me by my company and the USB ports have been blocked in manner such that I can copy stuff from my USB drive on to the machine but cannot copy in the reverse direction, ie. from the hard drive to the USB. Obviously it is to safeguard against theft of data. However, I do not deal with any confidential data and like to back up things every few days. Please tell me a shortcut to unlock my USB entirely even though I do not have administrator rights on the machine.

Could somebody help me with a quick batch program to remove, network addresses, gateway, broadcast, etc.? Also include cookies, browser history and that sort of thing but really I want the network code if you could help out with that.

I know I could just use ccleaner but this is something that will be constantly worked on until all the functions I want will be in this one batch file instead of possibly running a couple programs.

Used these two but need to know from the experts!!

I have an hp mini 1000 netbook with the admin passwords in the bios and win xp. It was my cousins who is no longer with us, so my aunt gave it to me. Noone knows the passwords. How can I bypass them or override them? I can get in as a guest but it is too limited. What are my best options?

A:HP Mini admin password unknown

You need to talk to HP, after changing the registered ownership, and may need a document about the fate of the previous owner. You may have to send it to a certified HP service center with a formal notice of change of ownership included.
As for TechSpot, there is a policy to not provide assistance with passwords.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. It has an admin password for the bios. Nothing is locked except for the settings. I can't change any of the settings in the bios. It lets me boot to windows just fine though. My question is, since I don't know that admin password for the bios, if I upgrade the bios firmware, will the admin password be deleted? Since I'm flashing the bios, I would think that all the settings will be lost. Is that the case?

OK, my subject line might sound cryptic! Here is my set up: first router (main) is connected to the cable modem and provides std addresses as (base is etc. I have a second router (same brand) as a gateway connected to my main. This second router base address is and all that are connected to this one have manually provided IP addresses (such as, etc). The main one provides WIFI access as for the second one do not.

Now my question: from my laptop who uses the WIFI network, how can I reach or connect to the other network (the one that is managed with the router with the address? The purpose? I would like to access the computer connected to it as if they were part of the WIFIed network. And be able to access the router management page. Any clue?

A:Cascading routers - how to access admin features from one to the other?

first some basics;

examine the router (the box itself). everything attached to a LAN slot will default to
routing upwards using the WAN slot -- that's a big clue as to what the routing tables looks like.

second; to manage the configuration of a specific router:
a) WIRE a system directly to it
b) login to the router config page using the current router's ip-address

if your network is

then a system attached to routerX will route upward to router(X-1) and NOT downward to router(X+1)

if you wish to have ALL systems (wired and wireless) see and share with each other, then you have too many distinct address.
Leave router#1 as is. disconnect router#2 from #1 and wire router#1 to a LAN port on router#2, leaving its WAN port empty. Log into router#2 and disable DHCP.

Now do the same for the wire from #2-->#3 and disable#3 DHCP.

All systems (wired or WiFi) will get ip-assignments from router#1 and will be able to
ping and share files.

Cannot Login to Netgear DG834G router wirelessly from Dell Laptop

Hi heres hoping you can help me.

I have a wireless connection through a Netgear DG834G from a Dell M6300 running Windows XP which is working fine with respect to accessing the internet..

I also have a desktop (wired to the router) which is also running fine.

The problem is that I cannot log into the router wirelessly as Admin on
I can login to the router as Admin from the wired PC, but not the laptop !!
I get to the login screen to input password but when pressing enter the login box just re-appears with the password field blank again.
I know the password entered is correct and accurate as it works from the wired desktop

(note: I have changed my laptop recently from HP to Dell, I was able to access the router wirelessly as Admin to perform maintenance with the HP model)

Any ideas ?

A:Cannot connect to wireless router as admin wirelessly

Are all the settings correct for the wireless laptop.
encryption method WEP, WPA, WPA2

Does the router even see this new laptop?
Do you still have the older laptop?
Check to see if the DELL firewall is disabled under Windows, make sure it off.
Try opening up a session: ping
Does the laptop get IP by DHCP,

ipconfig /release wait.... ipconfig /renew wait... try it again does work then
try static IP then do ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns

If all still doesn't work try..
re-joining the wireless router
disconnect using the wireless in range method on the laptop
reconnect but remove the password then re-do it then click on connect see if the wireless laptop can connect.
If it does reboot the laptop and login with your login ID password
Now open the browser and see if you can get into your router
Make sure you do not have any spyware or popup blocker active..

I'm assuming this is a windows password we're talking about here, and that you're running XP. If it is asking you for a BIOS password (black screen, white text), then you're probably screwed, unless there is a BIOS reset jumper within easy reach. If not, have fun opening the entire laptop to find it.

If it gets to windows and wants a password, try this:

grab either active password changer (


Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (

Follow the instructions closely and there's a good chance one of the two will work.

Last night since I was having slow/non-existent connection issues, I turned off the NAT option on my Belkin wireless G router. Immediately afterwards I lost internet connection as I expected but now can't connect to the config page @ . I tried running the setup software again and it can't communicate with the router, either. Tried hitting the reset button several times, disconnecting the router, etc. but the config page still won't load. Is there anyway to manually revert the router back to factory settings?

A:Can't connect to admin page on Belkin Router

So this is with the pc connected directly to the router via an ethernet cable?
Go to My Network Places, and on the left theres a thing that says "show all UPnP devices" or similar. Click on it, then go to your LAN settings and set your IP address to auto, or vice versa. Plug in/turn your router back on and it should come up as a network place. From that doubleclick it and enter admin etc..

Any ideas on how to crack the password or any pins to short to reset it?

The laptop will run fine if I rais it off the table and have a fan blowing on it from behind. Cooling fan in laptop runs, but it only comes on shortly before a shutdown if I am not running an additional fan blowing under it.

I have created a folder on a spare machine called users shared it.

In that folders i have put a folder for each user with there name as the
folder as their username.

And created the following script:

Dim objNet, strUserName

Set objNet = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")

strUserName =objNet.UserName

objNet.MapNetworkDrive "N:", "\\server\users\" & strUserName

Saved as a vbs added to all the All Users/Startup so it runs and the drive
appears in My Computer. Perfect!

But i want the my document location to be set to that drive, how would i do

there a script or anyywhere in gpedit?

Fortunately, not all errors in the Event Viewer (EV) are real problems. Actually, many are not problems at all. You can adjust the size of the records that are being held in the EV by right-clicking either Application, Security or System and selecting Properties.

Hello I have a friend who used his computer yesterday and today when he attempted to logon to his computer as himself (admin) it tells him "user profile cannot be loaded".

A:Lost Admin Privileges

The prompt for Admin during installs is actually a good thing (that is the UAC and you REALLY want it to prompt) BUT you can almost always use any log in the Administrators Group

use CP->User Accounts
add user
set type = Admin
*must* add password to it

save and close

runas /user:$whatever$you$just$created cmd
give that password

it will then create the %profile% for that new user

From then on, you can reply with $whatever$you$just$created and its password

Does anyone here know if there's a way to tell Disk Cleanup to generate a log for exporting purposes? My goal is to create a batch file that will query disk cleanup (no gui preferred) and generate a log.

I was also wondering if theres a command to create a system restore without launching the GUI (batch file)

Basically, if the command is part of the shell such as "echo" the batch file won't have a problem with it. But if you try to execute ANYTHING that isn't part of the shell such as chkdsk for example which is a program... you get nothing.

What's really weird is if you launch cmd manually and type something in it works perfectly. I'm guessing this is some kind of permissions issue but I am using an admin account. Anyone seen this before?

A:Programs won't execute in batch files

You can use the DOS "Start" command (in your batch file), ie:

Start chkdsk C: /r

To start CheckDisk (actually, it will ask you Yes or No, to start on next restart)


Oh or "Call"

Hi -
It's not unusual for me to get a message, one example of which is attached, that a script is running and is unresponsive. I always opt to end the running of the script. Usually that means that I have to press "refresh". Today, however, I'm getting killed by this message.

I keep my computer pretty clean, running cleanup utilities every day. I keep the software up-to-date, using utilities to update software when new versions are available.

IF/once you get there,

Also understand that multiple accounts with Admin rights allows any of them to change all passwords - - obviously just not going to work.

In addition, allowing multiple persons to share the same account has the same problem.

To start with, either remove the hard drive and slave it to another computer to copy the data off of it
or, use a bootable drive to boot into another OS and then copy the data to an external drive (may require disabling SecureBoot and enabling legacy/CSM).
Once that's done, start with these free, bootable diagnostics:
Again, you may have to disable SecureBoot and enable legacy/CSM in order to boot from the disks
For the hard drive diagnostics you'll have to either work on finding a bootable diagnostic for a USB drive - or test the drive when you slave it to a working computer.

I only want to execute the "XCOPY" command when the parameter is "3".

What happens is that when the parameter is "3", the "XCOPY" command will execute, but none of the commands that follow it.

If the parameter is not "3", then nothing executes.

If I remove "IF %1 = "3" ", then every thing executes.

A:Perl Modules problem after running Script

I know almost nothing about Perl, but I'd imagine that you are missing a file:

Does this file exist? What script are you trying to run, anyway?

Hello all,

I've got a bunch of 128x128 png files and I would like to create a 1-2 pixels wide stroke around each one of them (as a frame). The size should remain the same, the stroke should overwrite what's already there.

It's for business so it doesn't really matter if the program is not free.

A:Batch operation on image files

ImageMagick comes with a pile of command-line image manipulation tools. You want to run something like "convert -stroke blue -strokewidth 2 -fill none -draw 'rectangle 1,1 127,127' input.png output.png" This would draw a 2px wide blue border around input.png and save to output.png

I just need now to find a way for Robocopy.exe to not overwrite files in the destination DIR , if in the source DIR it copies files with same names that are in the Destination DIR, but rather renames the new copied files..
You know the switch for that at all..???

I previously registered with a website, and everything has been fine until now. The website now cannot log me in, and says that my browser (IE 7)does not accept script cookies. I'd lowered the security level to Medium, and added the website to the safe list for cookies, regardless of privacy policy. And it still doesn't work!! Anyone got an idea what it could be, or how to solve it? Thx.

A:My browser doesn't accept script cookies? Please help

I have absolutely no experience with IE7, so can`t solve your problem with it. However, if you were to try a different browser such as Firefox, this may at least solve your problem with that particular website.

I'm trying to install Media Manager 2.3 to go with Sony Vegas 8, but when it reaches the actual install process it instantly pops up a message saying:

Please make sure you have local system administrator privileges on this system. Cancelling the installation.Click to expand...

And does so. I've tried starting Vista in safe mode and installing, and I know that I have admin privileges. Any ideas what might be stopping it from running?

I'm on Windows XP. Every time I try to make a change from msconfig, I get an error message "An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on using an Administrator account to make the specified changes". However, I'm then asked to reboot my system, and generally the changes get done, barring NvCpl which I can't disable from start-up using msconfig.

Also, when I use services.msc to stop a service that I no longer require, I am not being given the option to stop the service.

I am the only user and the Administrator on my computer. Can't fathom what to do about this. If someone can help me out, it'd be great.

Hello, I have written a simple PHP web script to read your minidump (*.dmp) files and output using the DUMPCHK program from Microsoft's debug tools.

Go to:

Upload a DMP file, it only takes files less then 200Kb. Once it is uploaded, you can click on the file name to get the output from dumpchk.

Right now the script is in beta. One issue is that if you happen to upload a dmp file with the same name as another, it will overwrite it. I have some additional stuff to change. But let me know if you find this idea usefull at all, and what I could do to improve it for regular use.

Thank you.

A:Batch file to synchronize folders over a network

You would not need that at all, if you would set the J-drive's %USERPROFILE%\My Documents as your default in your PC.
(unless your network is slooooowww, or not always available).

Check if your company has Ontrack's (or V-Com's now) Powerdesk (Explorer replacement) available, that has built-in folder synchronisation. Laplink can do the same.

Your current batchfile cannot do that, there are simply no switches for that in xcopy.

hey all, im just wondering which script for mirc u guys prefer to use

A:whats the best mirc script?

What exactly are you talking about? Addons or interfaces? I think Invision has the most to offer in it's interface if that is what you are looking for.

If you are just talking script, I have a pretty nice one that will record anytime someone says your name in a channel. It's pretty nifty for when you are away, you can go back and check what people have been saying about you :evil:

thanks for reading

so i'm just trying to install something, 4OD to be precise, and i get this message:

Error 1303. The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Deliveries. The installation cannot continue. Log on as administrator or contact your system administrator

now i'm presuming here that it wants to create a folder named 'My Deliveries', but heres the problems:

1. I am the administrator on my computer
2. I don't have a folder named 'Documents' where it should be, although there is one named 'Shared Documents'

can anyone help?


A:Insufficient privileges to my documents?

The path for the installation is wrong. (if this is Vista)

You need to change the installation path to:
C:\Users\username\Documents\My Deliveries (where "username" is your account name you are currently logged on with)
