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.)

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.

I have a domain network with about 25 XP workstations. Currently they are all local admin users. We want to try to stop them loading unapproved software and other junk. 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?? Also, what about Java and Adobe updates? What is the best way to handle this?

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.

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.

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.

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 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?

Thanks for the help,

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 ???

I've reach a wall...
When a Network User is logged On they get prompted for Admin rights when they try to install something or change a setting... I'd rather them enter the Local Admin account on Windows 7 then giving them a Network Admin info since all the private files associated with that network admin would be available to them... But every prompt is asking for DOMAIN admin

How can I temporally switch the Admin Prompt from DOMAIN to LOCAL?

Well, as soon as I posted this the guy responded. He found under documents and settings the username as well as another entry of username.domain, but with standard directories underneath(desktop, favorites, etc). Problem seems to have gone away. I'm still curious why the two user profiles were created. Maybe he added her user name during OS installation?

hi,

I work in a school with a CC3 (RM) network basically modified windows xp and 2000, i have joined a standard windows xp machine to the domain and added a user on the domain local admins group, however when this user logs in they can see the c drive and access other usually restricted parts of windows what they can not do is change the screen resolutions or right click on the task bar.

what would cause this to happen? my understanding is that once the user is in the local admin group they should have full access to everything on that laptop and rm will not supplt support because they do not support standard windows.

there is no way to block this kind of use from active directory is there ??

If you can go into a user account with administration rights than you can go into command prompt and type:

If you cannot log into an admin account: than you have to boot into dos from a bootable CD

First things first; Does the computer belong to you personally, or is it assigned to you by the college ??

From what you're describing, it sounds like its theirs which means you should leave it alone and not tamper with it.

Having said that, ask your college IT department. They might be willing to help you out.

Hello admin domain, accounts the Windows 7 looses programs and some local of one In on of the labs I run with dual boot Linux and windows I've been experiencing this issue with PCs Today I noticed one more had this issue They were connected to my windows domain but when I'm going to login Windows 7 looses domain, some programs and one of the local admin accounts the domain connection is gone and one of the local administrators is gone too After resetting the Administrator account password I'm able to login but some of the programs have vanished while others still run The Bios is boot protected so I don't think any user could boot a CD USB to mess with the PC One thing I was thinking was if someone got root privileges in Linux and mount Windows 7 looses domain, some programs and one of the local admin accounts the Windows partition and mess with it But even if someone got the root password how come the administrator and Windows 7 looses domain, some programs and one of the local admin accounts student local accounts still exist Windows restore points are disabled so I think that even if the machines were not shutdown properly they would no rollback to some inconsistent state Has anyone experienced something like this Is this some kind of hacking Thanks and best regards Dave

Acessing your account. Can the admin use AD or a domain service to over ride the local policy?

vvcmarttech, sorry but domain admins in the AD can do most anything they want. No hiding from them.

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.

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

1.   I'm the admin.
2.   I turn on the computer.
3.   Everything is all right.
4.   3-5 minutes later - I can't do anything : 
 
a ) I can't uninstall softwares
b ) I can't use some programs, I can't install some programs
c ) I'm not able to compile in C++ (maybe mingw is off)
 
When I try to do these things I can see information that I'm not the admin and I should have some contact with him.
I enter : " Change type of your profile ". 
What can I see? I'm still the admin. But everything says I'm not. But I am. 
One thing that is really interesting is that when I turn on the computer I'm the admin. I lose my rights after 3-5 minutes (despite of the fact beeing the admin in the control panel).
Have you got maybe a piece of advice? 
 

A:Why I lose my admin's rights during using the computer?

Please post exactly what you are trying to do and how you go about doing it when this happens.
 
It would help if you can post the exact error message you receive.

Im struggling to get the computer to go straight to the desktop with out the password window coming up. I tried to put the guest as an admin, but before I did that i limited the other profile. They are both limited and I need one as an admin. (I would prefer a new account or guest as the admin). Is there a solution?

Sorry if there is a similar thread already posted.
 

A:Solved: I need Admin rights for my computer

Welcome to TSG

boot into safe mode and logon as Administrator. change the account settings back to administrator for your old regular account or setup a new account with admin rights.

as for your other problem:

i'm struggling to get the computer to go straight to the desktop with out the password window coming up.Click to expand...

Click Start, click Run, and type control userpasswords2.

Clear the Users must enter a username and password to use this computer check box.

Click Apply.

Enter the user name and password you wish to automatically log on with, and then click OK.

Click OK again and you're all done.

So a new box recently built, when booted, defaults to the local administrator account.

This is a Windows 7 machine for a Linux guru that doesn't want to be bothered pressing more buttons than is necessary, if you get my drift.

So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?

If I'm not being clear, please let me know and I will try to explain a little better.

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

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)?

Hello!
Some weeks ago a friend of mine pointed out that he couldn't read the properties of My Computer which seemed odd. (If I right click on My Computer and select properties, nothing happens)
The problem has extended to not being able to remove certain programs and not being able to even access file sharing options let alone being able to change them at all no matter how I try to access it.

I Have run a multitude of registry fixing programs and malware/spyware programs and nothing seems to have gotten to the bottom of the issue.

I am stuck, my only option thus far seems to be to re-install Win7 and I am not too keen on losing certain apps and data associated with them. Does anyone have a clue as to what the problem may be?

A:Admin rights have been disabled and my computer is now locked down

Because you have already done all those registry things this might be what you are looking for.

It wouldn't be that much of a problem if the UAC didn't prompted me every now and then (like when I try to run .exe files or do things that require admin rights) and asked for the admin password (which is "blank", as there is no digit in it). Not only that but also there's nowhere to "type" the password in the UAC prompt.

How are you trying to access Services? are you typing it in the Run box or the command prompt? It will not work at the command prompt.
Boot into Safe Mode as the Built in Administrator (Not your User account with admin rights) You will need to provide the Admin password, or if you did not set one, leave it blank. Go to Start/Run and type control userpasswords and press enter. Make sure your user account is an Admin user and not a limited user. Then go to Start/Run and type services.msc and press enter.

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

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

we have a local pc that was once connected directly to server and was set up as a domain user login

The user has to login to a domain even though it is no longer connected directly. This is not a problem until needing to change the windows login password.

The control panel forces us to press Ctrl Alt Del to change password then does not allow us to change the password as it still thinks it is connected to the domain

Please can anyone advise on how to change the domain login user to user-zoo login?

A:How do I remove a local computer from domain group

To remove a a computer from the domain you need to first log in as a local administrator. This will be the account that was first setup when the operating system was installed. Once logged in you need to go to:

start> Right click on 'Computer'>Properties

You should be presented with a windows similar to the one below:



After this you need to click on change settings:



From here you need to click on change:



Here you want to select Workgroup and in the box enter 'WORKGROUP'. Press Ok and you may be presented with an box asking for a username and password to take it out of the domain. To do this you need to enter the local PC name and the username and password. For example if the machine was name Josh-PC and I was logged in as Administrator, I would put the following:

Username: Josh-PC\Administrator

Password: [Pa55word]

Hope this helps,
Josh!

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.

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.

We can't assist you with some aspects of this due to restrictions in the rules about passwords. We most certainly cannot help with no allow any discussion of methods for accomplishing the task.

But, you certainly should be able to log on as local administrator. The password should be known by you or whoever set it up. It could possibly be a blank. If you have legitimate access to the machine, the passwords should be supplied to you by someone in IT that set this up or is aware of the setup.

How is it that neither you nor anyone else seems to know the needed passwords?

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

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.

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.

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

Can someone help me get back my admin rights.
I have just one user on my pc , its as a standard user.
Whenever I try to make a change I get a UAC notice telling me to
enter a password , but there is no place for a password nor do I have any
passwords on my pc.
I can't go add or change users or user right cause I just get that same message.
thanks

See if you can activate this administrator, if you can set up a new administrator account for yourself and delete the problem one.

You can also use the adminsitrator to go back to good times with system restore.

For some reason I get pop-up messages saying I require admin rights when I try to do something such as changing settings in msconfig or running a program as admin. The thing; I am an admin. There's only one account on the computer.

My school has taken away are admin rights and we can't download .exe's. I thought maybe there was a way to convert a .exe to.zip. I searched around but all the program to download but I needed admin rights. Please tell me a way to download the .exe's or convert them to .zip's.

A:Admin rights and .exe

Pal sorry to say but there's a reason why these rights have been taken away form school. .exe files can cause all kinds of problems for the people trying to give you a decent education. The teachers and IT staff are only looking after yours and their own best interests.
Trying to circumnavigate their security is only going to break the rules that they have put in place to try and protect the systems that they have spent allot of time, money and resources on

I have a user who loses her administrator rights periodically and seemingly for no reason. Recently I was trying to install a postscript print driver and I'd start with admin rights and then sometime during the installation I'd lose them and wouldn't be able to complete it. Is there a reason that the admin rights are being lost?

A:Admin rights

Hi, developers are coming to terms with UAC and installations are looking for it if you turn it off the installation can fail, otherwise make sure you right click on the excutable and select run as administrator.

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

you need to set up a remote desktop connection. firewalls must be configured to accept remote desktop connections.

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

I would suppose that would depend on when it is saying that? A user with admin rights is not the same as being logged in as administrator.

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"
