Clearing 'administrator privileges'

Q: Clearing 'administrator privileges'

I have asked about this before but did not get an answer.  Every so often when I try to open some apps and in particular the Store itself, I get this message running the full width of the screen:
 
"Store can't open while File Explorer is rumming with administrator privileges. Restart File Explorer normally and try again.   Close"
 
How do I do that?  I know how to open things as Administrator, but I have not found out how to remove the status of Administrator already granted!  I am now going to try shutting the PC and restating, hoping that will clear Administrator status / remove administrator privileges.  If it does it will of course only be a temporary stop-gap until I have learned how to do it properly.  If it does not then I am somewhat stuck!

Preferred Solution: Clearing 'administrator privileges'

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.)

A: Clearing 'administrator privileges'

Hi clayto From what I found, this is something new in Windows 8/8.1 due to the "AppContainer" mode/method. Here if you want to read more about it:http://www.thewindowsclub.com/app-cant-open-explorer-running-administratorhttp://superuser.com/questions/521293/why-does-the-error-app-name-cant-open-while-file-explorer-is-running-with-adThis is what's happening here:Now Windows Explorer normally runs in medium integrity mode, and explorer.exe is the parent process from which all other user-initiated processes inherit their access token. If Explorer is running with admin privileges i.e. at high integrity level, then any Metro apps it launches will inherit that administrative access token, which is obviously a strict no-no as it will violate the sandboxed environment provided by the AppContainer integrity level. Hence the error message thrown.Windows Explorer isn't launched with Admin Rights as far as I know too. It could have something to do with the "Priority" in the Task Manager, but this doesn't affect the access level.

I was trying to explain to a friend yesterday the difference between the powers of the hidden Administrator account and a user account with Administrator privileges; but, I don't feel I was successful. I searched for an article on the 'net that would explain one vs the other; but, I could not find one.

Can someone point me to such an article?

A:How does an Administrator give himself Administrator privileges?

The application you are using to save the file needs administrator priviledges. So if you are using notepad, you need to open notepad by right-clicking on it and pressing "Run as Administrator". From there you can open the text file you need (or write some text) and then save it to the root directory (C:/)

I am attempting to install Calibre on a Win 8.1 machine.
It downloads fine but during installation I am told the installer does not have sufficient privileges, and to sign on as adminstrator.

There is only one user on that machine, and it has admin privileges.
I gave it a password, but that did not help. I took control of the downloaded file, with no success.

I wanted to post a picture of the error but Win 8.1 seems to have lost the snipping tool.

So how does an Administrator give himself administator privileges?

I have Calibre installed on a win 7 machine with no issues.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional. Occasionally I get a popup window that tells me to download a new version of my malware program and provides a link to do that. When I click on the link a dialog window pops up and tells me that I need administrative privileges to perform that action. I'm the only user of the computer and I am working with administrative privileges - at least the computer says I'm an administrator. The only way I've found to perform the action is to do it from safe mode. Do I have to disable UAC or is there a command I can use? There is no "Run as Administrator" in the context menu for this item.

A:UAC and Administrator privileges

Well the problem is that the ASUS programs require administrator privileges. Maybe you should disable those programs for your kids and just leave them enabled for your account. Is that an option?

BTW, have you tried it this way?

Maybe you can configure those programs to run automatically under your username and password. Kind of like how you can configure services to run under a certain account (by having the computer remember the credentials for that account).

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

I would hope that the easiest way out of your dilemma is a system restore to a point before the attempt was made to change the permissions configuration.

You may need to go into Safe Mode to do it though.

Also, creating a new user account, and then deleting the old one may do the trick, but I'm not so sure on that one.

Not sure either whether this tutorial will help, but I'll post the link anyway.

Hi all!

I've run into a weird issue where some of the computers I administer work fine, but some don't. For example, whenever I need to perform a task that requires admin privileges while logged into regular account (usually because it's the most convenient way of doing things), the computers that work fine just ask for the password and off the 3rd party software update goes.

Then again, some other computers ask for the password, and then fail to install 3rd party software updates, referring that I need admin privileges... despite me just having given them a password, and the OS accepting it. The only way around this is to actually log in with the admin account to apply the updates. Not a major hassle, but this is completely random and I'd like to determine the root cause.

Here is the problem in a nutshell. I have Vista Home Premium with several users. I have an account with admin privileges, and the other users were standard. The admin account was invisible, but no password (the default I think). One of the standard users must have gotten in to the admin account, and then gave themselves admin privileges. I've tried removing these privileges, but can't. If I try to change to standard user, it keeps coming back as having admin privileges. I tried in safe mode as admin (using netplwiz), but no luck. I can change admin privileges on my own account, or any other account, but not on this one. I even changed the password on the offending account and logged in with that userid, but still can't change admin privileges, even from within the account. Trying to delete the account doesn't work either.

Any suggestions, short of hanging the offending user upside down by their ankles?

A:Removing administrator privileges

Well, maybe the user has used the task scheduler to give him/herself admin privileges on system start up. That's what I would do :P

Go into the taskschd.msc and look for any tasks that involve a "net" command or the users username.

Or if you cant be bothered doing the technical stuff delete the user and make him/her a new account with a different username.

For some reason I am unable to connect to my dsl unless I am logged on as administrator. Do you know how to fix this? Also if I am just a home user does it matter how I log on. Does it matter if I log on as administrator when I am at home?
 

A:connecting to dsl without administrator privileges

Check to see if Internet settings are the same for every user. Each user has it's own internet settings.

I don't have a virus anymore,but what it left in it's wake is what I'm having a small problem with. I was attacked by a virus called Smart Security,but I was helped greatly to fix all that recently here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/320798/smart-security-infection/ . So of course I thought I was fine,but today I tried to install a game that requires administrator privileges and I am an admin. However, it wouldn't let me with the error message administer is only authorized to install etc. I then tried to install it in three more admin accounts and the same error came up. That's the only problem I have with admin privileges though. Everything else a admin can do under a admin username I am allowed to. So what's wrong and how can I get all my admin privileges back so I can install what I want.

A:How can I get my administrator privileges back?

I would try creating a new account, and see if that issue still exists.

I've been trying to download a file off the Net and it won't install because it says "It may need administrative permission." Well, I did note that I somehow lost ability to access that "administrator" icon somewhere along the way -- (d'ya know what I mean? I was "[myname, the user]" plus "Administrator", but now I can only access the "[myname, the user]" icon). I'm wondering if this is why I can't install it....

(If it's significant, the program I'm trying to install is free Sun's Java -- and I want to install it because it allows me to run payroll deduction calculations right on the Net.)

How can I fix this: a) access my Administrator settings and/or b) install the Java file?

Thanks for your help,

I was frustrated that Windows 8 required me to input my password every time, but after searching online, I found out a way to automatically sign in whenever I start up my computer. Later on, I decided to change my Microsoft account to a local account (can't remember why), and then I changed back. Once I changed back, I had to do the password thing again.

Now, though, my account is set to a "Guest" account, and whenever I'm asked to allow something as an administrator (which tends to happen a lot), I'm not allowed to click "Yes", with "No" being the only option. This is a major issue that needs to be fixed, and any help would be appreciated.

This is bugging the life out of me, as I want to get stuff done.

Both me and my friend are running local accounts, and none of us has rights to access temp files.
Installation files are bugging, telling me that the "data is corrupt" or "can't find the files".

What procedures do I need to take to make sure I have full control over my files? I tried administrator group policies, local elevated admin, changing rights, changing ownership of folders, permanently and with the "Take Ownership" quickfix.
What else can be done?

Any ideas as to why wizards can't open temporary setup files, when everything points to the fact that I have ownership?

A:Administrator account with no privileges

Hello Emiroda, and welcome to Eight Forums.

In addition to changing ownership, did you also set permissions to "Allow" administrators "Full control" of them?

I was told that I should create different accounts for Windows 7, and keep one as "Administrator" that should be rarely used, while the other ones should be for normal use.

What would the point of this be? I currently have only one account to login with.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

thanks! Charlie

A:Administrator privileges accounts (WIN 7)

there is an administrator account and there is a hidden one that you currently do not have access to without specifically activating it. IMO, if you are the only one using the computer, then there is no reason to create separate accounts.

see the following for more info on the hidden account.

This is a strange one, we have about 7 Win7 Pro machine in our office along with 20 XP machines. From Computer Management>Local Users & Groups>Groups>Administrators we have Domain Admins assigned here but we also include Domain Users. Our server runs Windows Server 03 R2.

The first problem is that one 2 of the machines, the Domain Users is removed from the Administrator after every log off/on which in turn looses any permissions to install etc. We then have to log on as the local administrator, add Domain Users back in and then log on using our own profile.

The second really strange thing is it seems to be renaming these groups with an SID number instead of keeping the name Domain Users or Domain Admins names where the other 5 computers keep the name.

Any Ideas, as it is becoming very frustrating to not being able to install without having to reset these permissions.

Delete the machines from the domain group and re-add them.
If that fails, perform a re-image on those two machines.

I have read other posts about this problem but none that I have found seem to fit my problem. First of all, I am the admin on my computer and there are no other users but myself. Secondly this problem happens for many functions. For example when trying to create another user account I am not able to because of the shield symbol next to the fuctions.

I have no idea how to remove this because the symbol appears on many areas in the control panel so I cannot get into any areas which may let me.

Also this box comes up when trying to open certain programs.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know we have touched on this before when I had tried to handle something in file explorer, and now the frustration has extended itself to the desktop.

I am really sick of W10 telling me that I need Administrator Privileges. This time it is to perform an operation to a shortcut on my desktop, but frankly, as I made my account an admin account purposely, for anything.

Has anyone found a way to make any Admin account actually have full Administrator Privileges?

A:Administrator Privileges problems

As far as I know, the only true admin account with full access is the built in Administrator account, which is disabled by default.

Honestly, if you know what you are doing with the computer, you can turn off UAC, but that's about it. As long as you are aware of the risks, it cuts down on almost all prompts. I disable it on all of my computers, but that doesn't mean I tell everyone to do so.

If you think Windows 10 is annoying, then try OSX or Linux. Those prompts are there for a reason, and as someone who works in corporate IT, I'm thankful that Windows has been locked down.

Trying to establish a new wireless network using Linksys router and PC card with speedbooster. The desktop PC has always had only one user (administrator). Never has had a password. When trying to install the router software it fails because I don't hav administrator privileges. How do I overcome this? Can I re-set administrator privileges? I'm using XP Home with all MS updates and SP2. Any help? Thank you.
 

A:Cannot install Linksys without administrator privileges

firstly check to see if you have the administrator proviledges.. As far as I know with XP home you can't login to Windows with the Administrator profile without using Safe Mode... This is one of the security features.. So therefore I doubt you are actualy logged in with the Administrator Account.

Go to: Control panel, User Accounts... See if your account name is there & See if it says "liimited profile" or "Computer Administrator"

I have a family PC running XP Home with six user accounts. All are administrator accounts and I prefer to keep them that way. The PC is firewalled and has AV and anti-spyware SW and I try to educate my family in safe computing practices.

My problem is that the 8, 11, and 15 y-o boys keep screwing up each others accounts (on purpose) by changing each other's passwords, or changing them to limited accounts. My 11 y-o for example, thinks his 8 y-o brother should not be allowed to install "Sponge Bob Whatever"; so he changes his account to limited. (Somehow he thinks it is ok though to install Limewire or Bearshare even after I tell him not to).

Is there a way in XP Home to give users "Power User" privileges which will allow them to do most everything administrators can do, but not be able to access other user accounts?

Ok--this is a new computer (laptop) with 7 Pro. The Administrator account has full privileges, but if I try to create a new account with administrator privileges, it does not have the full privileges--i.e., its a though its a more limited account even though it says its an administrator account. I have checked and there does not seem to be any fix for this except reinstalling windows--although this computer just came with OEM and I don't have a CD. Anyone know another way to correct it?

Hi...new to this side of the boards...I'm usually undoing something out of an HJT log here!!

Anyway...a few months back I had a fatal HD error and ended up getting a new 500GB and left the 180gb in the machine.
I got a program called File Scavanger which, if your drive is turning and alive electronically, it will recover pretty much everything.

So I've gotten pretty much all I'm gonna get useful off that drive and wanted to reformat it.
But NOT SO FAST BUDDY!!!!

Nope..won't let me.
I go to the command prompt and tell it to "FORMAT F:"
And the response I get is:
"Access denied as you do not have sufficient privileges.
You have to invoke this utility running in an elevated mode"

WHAT????? Excuse me?
I'm the owner..I'm the administrator....*** does this mean? And how do I assign myself higher than system administrator privileges?

A:Vista says Administrator doesn't have privileges

vista hides the true administrator privileges, ry the following

click the start menu.
In the bottom search bar type cmd (don't hit enter)
cmd will show in the list on top .. right click on it and click to run as administrator
the command panel will open
type this command exactly as it appears here.. or just copy and paste it in the cmd panel

net user administrator /active:yes

hit enter and it should tell you it completed successfully.

close the cmd panel and log off of windows.
When you log back on you should have a new Admin log on.

Last week I got rid of Comodo Firewall and am now using just the Vista Firewall. The problem is that this has created problems with Finale 2008, the music notation software I use. The 'Help' function, which previously connected directly to internet, no longer works; instead, Explorer Resources opens and I have to manually choose from the many help files available the one that is to be consulted.
I've discovered that by right-clicking with the mouse on the Finale icon before opening the program, and by running as administrator, then the 'Help' files open properly. How can I set up Windows firewall so that Finale always runs with Administrator privileges (I am in any case th Administrator and only user of this laptop)?

I realise that this problem has already been brought up innumerable times here on the forums, but this was either in different contexts or else was not solved.

I recently installed Panda Free Antivirus, but the installation failed to place the program icon in the Start Menu (the Panda Free Antivirus folder is there, but empty). A subsequent re-installation produced the same results.

I outlined the situation on the Panda forum, and was told to copy the program's .exe file on the desktop, rename it, change its icon, and then place it in the Start Menu, but I cannot open the Panda folder, either in the Start Menu or in Program Data, even though I am the Administrator and only user of this computer. When I try to change or modify ownership etc, I get error messages.

Can someone help me?

Hi Bones, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The message you get shows absolutely clear without any doubts that you are not running the command from elevated Command Prompt. That message is only shown when a command requiring administrative privileges has been run from a normal Command Prompt.

When run from an elevated Command Prompt, your command syntax is OK (highlighted yellow) and runs as it should, the output (highlighted green) showing it's working:
Two telltales of an Elevated Command Prompt, numbers referring to respective numbers in above screenshot:The title has word Administrator in it

I am not sure which forum this belongs in Win XP Linux or networks but I will start with this After some recent changes we have a problem with access to domain services such as e-mail only by users with administrative privileges These same services could be accessed by any user or power user in the past I will try to be brief in describing the network and the equipment required Administrator accessing domain for privileges I Administrator privileges required for accessing domain am an assistant administrator for a sub-network in a retirement community that has other networks for office personnel health-care etc needs Our network consists of five Win XP computers networked to a separate server machine running on Linux with a SAMBA interface that provides IMAP e-mail service full internet access and full inter-communication between the five resident computers so any one of them can be used interchangeably by users We have about residents registered but only a fraction of those use the computers regularly After replacing an older server program that broke down from time to time with a new one and replacing our former Win computers with Win XP we started having problems with network access At present when we register a new userID and password we logon to the new account and change the My Documents folder from its default C Documents amp Settings location to a mapped shared server drive named H through which all users can communicate from any computer so that it is now H My Documents The computer asks if we wish to transfer all settings to the new location and we say yes With our old setup we could do this okay setting up the new user with Power User privileges and we could logon freely at any computer Now to do this we have to give the user Administrator privileges which we obviously would prefer not to do If we attempt to relocate My Documents as a power user there is a message that this is not allowed If the user is first given administrator privileges and the My Documents move is carried out indeed a new H My Documents is created which can be accessed for storing documents pictures etc If the privileges are changed back to Power User the user can logon to that specific computer using the logon settings stored in the C drive but access to the network domain for e-mail folders etc that are stored on the server s H drive is denied A new e-mail account can be set up but applies only to the single computer and cannot be shared across the network The H My Documents folder can still be accessed and documents retrieved but the network settings are no longer accessible Is there some Win XP permission that will allow us to access these settings We really don t know whether our problem lies in the server in the SAMBA interface or some subtle difference in the way Win XP handles user privileges compared to Win There is a professional network consultant that is responsible for the entire installation but he has been too busy to look at this and frankly I am sure he does not know what the problem is Can anyone out in the wild blue yonder help nbsp

A:Can I fine tune administrator privileges for another user?

Assuming you have access to secpol.msc, (not all versions have access), it should be possible to either create a user group or modify the actual user permissions for your son to achieve what you need.

I would avoid making any changes to the current administrators group as this would have the potential to lock out all administrators, Including yourself, from making changes ( not a good idea )

I purchased a used laptop computer (Compaq Armada) at a Flea Market, the operating system is window 97 or 98. I wanted to clear the system by doing a F-Disk so that I could load Window 2000. I keep getting a message that I do not have administrator rights. How do I get around this message.
 

A:Clearing Administrator Rights Message

Probably have to remove the cmos battery if it's asking for a password to get into bios. Leave the battery out for about 30 min. Normally there's a small access door on the bottom of the laptop near the center screwed in with tiny screws.

That does say Administrator right under your name. If you're talking about that dot in the standard user, that's the only thing you can change it to.

For the past week I have been unable to install any programs or software on my laptop. When I do, it says I don't have administrator privileges to do so. I am the only user account and I am an administrator and I have tried to right click "run as administrator" but the same message still pops up. I have tried creating a new user administrator account which does let me install programs with no problems. 
 
Thanks!

My guess...would be that your native profile is damaged, since the newly-created profile seems to work well.

I am a sole account/user (home-based and non-network) with system administrator privileges, except this status is not recognized under Windows Update > Change Settings > Important Updates. The option of selecting automatic updating
and an installation frequency/time is grayed out.  How do I fix?  

A:Win7 Ultimate Sole User Administrator Privileges Not Recognized for Automatic Windows Updates

Hi KiDeb.
Did you have any changes prior this issue?
Could you confirm that Important Updates were installed before?
The possible solution could be this:
Hold WindowsKey + R 
Type: ?regedit?
Hit Enter

Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
Find AUOptions. 
Right Click Modify

You can change the values data from 1 through 5:
1. Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
2. Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
3. Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
4. Install updates automatically / Never Check For Updates
5. Enable the option box to choose manually

If this doesn't help, you can try this method, but make sure you backup the registry files as you are doing this step on your own and I am not responsible for the possible issue -
Backup registry files in Windows 7
Click ?Start? button.
Select ?Run?.
Type ?regedit? without quotes in the Run window and hit Enter.

Navigate to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
In the right-pane, delete these two values ?AUOptions? and ?NoAutoUpdate?.

Then navigate to this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate
In the right-pane, delete the value ?DisableWindowsUpdateAccess?.
Restart the computer and then try to change the Auto Update Settings.

Hi guys.

My daughter's laptop has w7 on it, and there's a weird issue. All the damn time, it seems, she gets this little popup box that just says "Administrator privileges are required". and that's it, with just an OK button underneath. What the hell is that and how can I find out what program launched it?

Now, one problem is that she's always looking for Minecraft mods and as such keeps stumbling onto pages that install stupid toolbars and stuff (which I keep cleaning out), but I have zero idea what this popup is about.

Thanks in advance.

A:Random popup, just "Administrator Privileges are Required"?

Hi PrimoOptimoso,

Please share some more details pertaining to the issue for a better understanding:

- When does the 'popup' occur? Does launching any application trigger it? Or it comes up by itself?
- What type of 'User account' is being used by your daughter? Is it a 'standard account' or an 'administrator account': User accounts: frequently asked questions?
- Does the 'popup message' ask for a 'password' also? What happens when you click 'OK'? Please share a screenshot of the 'pop-up' that is observed; should be helpful.
- Which 'anti-virus' is installed in the system? Is it updated and have you tried running a security scan?
- If a third party security software is in use, would suggest you to try installing 'Microsoft Security Essentials' and recheck results. (Please remove the currently installed security software before installing Microsoft Security Essentials'
- Unplug all 'external peripheral devices' and check if the popup re-appears (if it appears by itself)
- Also share if you've observed any 'error message' or 'abnormality' in the system performance apart from this popup

A similar message may result from the 'User Access Control', which is a built-in security feature in 'Windows': What is User Account Control?

Do reply with the finding; will take it forward from there.
