Program blocked by Admin, but I am Admin

Q: Program blocked by Admin, but I am Admin

I am trying to open AVG Free edition or Malwarebytes but I keep getting a message that tells me the program has been blocked by the System Administrator. I am the system administrator. I can't delete the program and download a newer version for the same reason. I ran Kaspersky disk and cleaned up the PC, but this problem still occurs. Any suggestions from here?

Preferred Solution: Program blocked by Admin, but I am Admin

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: Program blocked by Admin, but I am Admin

Hello, Qrush007! Let's start with some important instructions:
Last, but not least, be patient. I know it is very stressful to have a computer with a potential malware infection, but unfortunately it will take some time to get to your topic. We will, though, get to you and attempt to resolve your issues to the utmost of our ability.
Avoid installing or uninstalling programs during the malware removal process, because doing so can cause discrepancies between the information in different log files created by different programs at different times.
Do NOT run tools such as Combofix unless instructed by a BleepingComputer staff member. These tools can break your computer if used improperly, so you should only run them if you know what you are doing or if the person who told you to use Combofix knows what they're doing.
If you want to, you should back up all important documents and files to an external storage device or online file backup service. Malware infections--and attempts to fix them--can prevent your computer from booting up, making your files unaccessable; this means that backing up your files to an USB flash drive or to an online service like Dropbox before attempting to remove malware is a good idea.
Step 1: Rkill
Please download Rkill by Grinler. Save it to your desktop.
Run the program. If you are using Windows Vista, you should right click the program and select "Run as administrator".
A Black DOS box should appear; this indicates that the program is functioning.
The program will generate a log file on your desktop. Post the contents of that file in your next reply.
Do not restart your computer until the other steps are finished.
Step 2: Please download MiniToolBox by Farbar, and save it to your desktop.
Run the program. Please select the following options:
Flush DNS
Report IE proxy settings
Reset IE proxy settings
Report FF proxy settings
Reset FF proxy settings
List content of Hosts
List installed programs
List restore points
After the program finishes its job, it will create a log file called "Result.txt" on your desktop. Post the contents of that file in your next reply.
Step 3: Run ESET online scanner
Using Internet Explorer, navigate to (If you used another web browser, such as Firefox, you will have to download an installer file)
Read through the program's terms of use. If you agree with it, check the checkbox which confirms that you accepted the program's terms of use. If you do not agree with its terms of use, then notify me and I can find another virus cleaning solution for you.
Accept any security warnings which may appear.
Click on the advanced settings part, and select "Scan for potentially unsafe applications","remove found threats", and "Scan archives".
Check "scan for potentially unwanted applications".
Click "start".
Eset will download updates and scan your computer; this may take a few minutes to a few hours.
When the scan completes, click "list threats".
Click "Export", and save the log file to your desktop.
Post the contents of the log file to your next forum post. Please note that if ESET does not detect anything, it may not necessarily generate a log file.
Step 3: Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode, and save it to your desktop.
Click on the "scan" button.
The tool will scan your computer for adware; this may take a few minutes.
After the scan has finished, click on the "Report" button. A logfile, AdwCleaner[R0].txt, will show.
After viewing the log, close the log file window. View the list of adware detections, and uncheck ones that you do not want to remove(i.e. the ones which you're sure to be benign).
Press the "Clean" button. You will be requested to restart your computer.
After restarting your computer, a log file called AdwCleaner[S0].txt will show. Post the contents of that log file in your next reply.

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.

It does not matter which of the 2 accounts I log into when I try install certain HP software(Maintenance

Hello Tbarajas, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You have really only have two options below since we cannot/will not be able to help you to override your uncle's security measures.
Take it back to your uncle.
Purchase Windows 7, and do a clean install of Windows 7 to start over.

Hi, Try the following. Shutdown the notebook and leave it like this for 10 seconds. Tap away at f11 as soon as you press the power button until you see a 'Windows is loading' message. On the next screen, select your Keyboard Layout and on the following screen, select Troubleshoot. Select 'Advanced Options' and then select System Restore. Click on your Operating System and then wait until the System Restore window opens. Pick a restore point at least 48 hours before the log-in issue first occurred and then proceed with the system restore. Regards, DP-K

A:System blocked by "admin", no loads, shutdowns.

Hello, it seems like Internet Security 2010 has totally hijacked your system. On a clean computer, please do the following. Download Malwarebytes and rename it to zztoy.exe. Once that has done, transfer this file onto a portable system device, e.g a flash drive or floppy drive if supported. Also download SUPERantispyware and rename to something random like random.exe. Place this on the portable system device. Run the applications on the infected computer, and let them update, definitions are released everyday, as more and more viruses appear. Oh and you get that shutdown message right? To stop that, go to run on the start menu, and type in shutdown -a. That will stop the computer shutting down. Then tell me how it goes, and if successful, post us your MBAM and SAS logs.

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.

When I start Windows, I get a message saying that some programs have been blocked at startup. They are programs that have to "Run as Administrator" to work properly, such as the one that governs my keyboard's macro keys. It's simple enough to enable to programs, by right-clicking on the icon, but I don't want to have to do this every single time I start up the PC!

This is an administrator account, but it isn't *the* administrator account, if that makes sense (Vista's account permissions and admin stuff confuses me no end ). How do I change the permissions so that "Run as Admin" programs can run at startup? I looked in Windows Defender's Startup section but it was no help.

Just purchased new PC - HP Pavilion desktop and upgraded to Windows 10 during installation. I've downloaded Google Chrome as my default search engine with no issues. I've attempted several times to download Google Earth. Download fails: "Google Earth needs administrator privileges to install."

I am the only user on this PC and User Account type indicates that I'm the "Administrator".

Why won't Google Earth install?

Sometimes you have to run the installation file and deliberately make it "Run as Administrator" by right clicking on the downloaded file and selecting this option. Not sure if this is the case with Google Earth but worth a try.

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.

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

I'm new to Windows 7.

I'm still trying to master the file permissions.. I need some help and I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.

I have a folder with mp3s (created with my old Windows XP system). I've included this mp3s folder in the "my music" library and then I inspected the folder and took ownership of it together with everything it contains (following instructions I found on the Net).

Nevertheless, when I'm trying to delete or move a file I get the message that I need to provide administrator permission! But I thought I am both administrator and owner...

Also, when listen to the songs with WinAmp, it seems I cannon save any song data. I get: Cannot save metadata: Error opening file.

I suppose, it's an aspect of the very same problem.

What am I missing?

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.

The person who owns the other Admin account is changing my accounts password (also an admin account). Surely there is some way to make it so that I can not have my account's password changed unless it is logged on to my actual account (so my account's password can only be changed if my account is logged on?)

Is there a way?

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.

Hello Assassin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You're wasting your time trying to install Group Policy to an edition of Windows that doesn't have it included by default. Doing so usually does not work, or comes with side effects that could make the system unstable.

If you want Group Policy, then you should have Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate installed instead.

The main (and only account) I have been using since the first beta came out had administrator privileges.

Today when I booted up I noticed that my account could no longer do things that are associated with an admin account, such as installing certain programs and writing to certain folders.

I created another account with admin rights and that account has the exact same problem. I tried removing the admin status on my account and putting it back on but that did not work.

Anyone else have this problem or have any advice on how to get my account seen as an admin account?

Can I get a program to run with admin without giving users local admin or a local admin password.

I have a programs which seems to need admin but do not want to grant local admin to my users.

Power users is no use.


A:Program needs to run with admin

There is a trick where you use task scheduler to launch a program with elevated rights and without asking any password or confirmation:
Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

You need to know the admin password for creating it, but the shortcut works on its own after that. But be aware that this is a security risk as anyone can elevate without knowing a password. Be sure that the program don't have any backdoor that allows users to take complete control if they really want (open/save as dialogs are particularly powerful when running elevated).

My computer uses the Windows XP operating system, and I'm curious as to know how I can run a program as administrator. When I try to run something as administrator, a window pops up asking me if I want to run it using my own profile, or run it using the administrator profile. However, I don't remember the password in order for me to run the program as administrator. Logging off and switching to the administrator user profile does nothing to fix this, as I still need the password. How would it possible for me to get the password for the administrator so I can run the program as administrator?

We have a laptop in the office that an employee uses. When I set up the computer, I set up two profiles - an admin and the user.

I need to install a program on the user side, but it won't let me install it. An error comes up and mentions admin privledges. I was logged in at the time as the standard user.

I logged in the admin and was able to install it on the admin's desktop...but can't figure out how to install it on the users side.

From the admin end, I even switch the user to an admin, but same result. Funny thing is that was I then logged in as the user, it didn't show as being an admin....

Any ideas or help would be appreciated!

I am setting up a very basic computer for a company, and I have already activated "The Administrator" and created a secondary Administrator. I will need accesss to The Administrator often. So what I am asking; Is there a way to prevent one administrator from deleting the other intentionally or unintentionally? I've set the password on the one I don't want deleted, but I know that is not enough, because the other Admin can still remove it.

A:How can I prevent one Admin from deleting another Admin??

Not sure how this is network or sharing related but it should be noted that the built-in Administrator can never be deleted only deactivated. It is strongly advised to only activate it when necessary.

You should only allow users Admin access if you wish them to have full control of that machine. The only possible way I can think of is to restrict access via group policy to that one Administrator so that it cannot change what you don't want it to.

Group Policy - Apply to a Specific User or Group

Please understand that even this isn't perfect and they may be able to bypass it via a command prompt therefore it may be worth restricting access to the command prompt. That being said if you want that much restriction then the account in question should really be a standard user.

So simply enough, how does one restore administrative rights to the admin account when it has lost them.

So, here's what I did.
Fresh install of Windows 7 x64 Pro.
Default initial user is "Benjamin"
created a second user, "Adam"
created a third user, "root"

Next security setup.
I removed administrator privileges from Benjamin.
Adam was created with no administrator privileges.
root was given administrator privileges.

Then I went into the local security policy to deny root from logging into the system locally.

Well, I learned that yes, this prevents root from logging into his account as a desktop user, but I did not expect it to prevent me from temporarily escalating my privileges to administrator while logged in as Benjamin.

I'm used to a Linux environment where it is normal that root can not log in but you can escalate. Is it possible to regain control of my system or do I need to reinstall?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Frankenddude, welcome to the Seven Forums.

A normal user account with administrator rights is not the same than built-in administrator account. The built-in administrator, sometimes also called as Super User, is the most powerful of all different user accounts in Windows, and because a normal user could do some serious harm if he was always using this account, it's by default disabled. This tutorial tells you more: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

However, you can temporarily use these super rights by launching a program by right clicking its icon and selecting Run as administrator from the context menu. For instance if you want to extract a zipped packet to some of the protected folders like Program Files or Windows, start the application you use for extracting (WinRAR, WinZip etc.) by right clicking its shortcut or icon, select Run as administrator and then use the applications menus to bring the packet you want to extract to application, then extract it where you want to. Running WinRAR for instance as an administrator let's you to extract packets wherever you want to.

If the packet is a self-extracting exe, just right click it and select Run as administrator.

OK I read the past forums and saw this problem addressed, but never answered.

I believe my Admin profile is messing up, but in an undefinable way.

I recently lost the ability to use most of the after-market programs installed on my cpu. When i try to open them, they ask for serial numbers. However, they do not accept the serial numbers when I type them in. When I try to uninstall them, I noticed I do not have install/uninstall privileges. And most do not show up in add/remove hardware. I also lost access to my Outlook Express mailboxes. And my desktop looks screwy.

I have only one user account: "Administrator," but it seems I've lost my Administrator privileges. System Restore only goes back to the date it occurred.

Is there a way to get full admin access or at least make the cpu recognize the programs it shows on the desktop?

Okay, I'm very sure I set my account to be Admin, there's only one account anyway, yet W8 requests admin permission to do everything.

I used to have W7 before, it never did this to me, but Windows 8 really deeply annoys me.

Now I'll be specific by saying that I only have "Windows 8", no Enterprise or Pro.

How can I make W8 stop nagging me everytime about admin rights? I AM an admin.

A:Windows 8 wants Admin rights, but I AM an admin

I took ownership of everything to get rid of the nag messages.
Someone else may have a better way...

I cannot do a few things that require admin rights but I the account I'm using is an admin account. I made a new account and gave it all privileges, admin, backup operations, helpservicesgroup, network configuration operations and replicator but even with all those rights this user can't get windows updates.

This is where I noticed the trouble, I wanted to go to windows updates and it gave me this error:
[Error number: 0x8DDD0002]
To install updates from this website, you must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group on your computer. If you use Windows XP, you can see if you are an administrator by going to User Accounts in Control Panel.

Note: If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you using this website. Contact your system administrator for help with updates. Click to expand...

Any ideas?

I am in the proces of doing a lockdown on people and their installing abilities. We have removed them from the admin groups and this is running well with the exception of a few programs that require admin rights (more accurately the applications give off alot of program errors if not run as an administrator). Is there any way to assign a program administrators privildeges so anyone with non administrative rights to it that logs on can use the program as it should? THis is both in a domain and a workgroup settings and some of these locations are 100's of miles away so any answers that would be a global solution would be best.

i have two programs running as admin or i think they are as the desktop icons both have small blue and yellow shields with them

what i need to know is how to stop these programs running as admin

A:how to stop program running as admin

A desktop icon does not mean they are running. What are the icons for? If they are programs you can hold down CTRL, ALT, DELETE and click on Task Manager. The Applications tab will show you what programs are running.

I have a program, BOINC in this instance, that I want to run only when I log in as a user, I do not want it to run when I log in as admin. is this possible? the program is up and running now but runs in both accounts. I use my admin account to do banking only and the user account to do 3D and allow the BOINC app to run when the PC isn't being used.

I am so annoyed about the fact that this shield red, green yellow and blue shield is tagged on some programs. It looks like this:

If you read this you can change the settings. You make sure that you let your Dad know what you are doing. If you make these changes and Dad finds out he will make you wish that you did not change it. Good Luck.

If you right click on the installer and select 'Run As' then select Administrator or another user who has administrator privileges, you can do it then....but you will need their password to do this for obvious reasons :-)

I have a minor technical question I would love help on. I have the UAC on and log in as a standard user for protection. There are a few programs that I would like to run automatically when windows starts that require a password EVERY time I start windows, or if I select them manually. Is there any reason certain programs due to their permissions need an admin password to run and other dont? I could not find the difference looking in the security section of properties compairing it with a program that runs as an admin. HELP! I would like to run these programs automatically as windows boots without typing in the admin password for each program. I thank you in advance for your help!

A:How do I run a program at startup without using an admin password?

Hello Mr.Ubiquitous,

You could create a task in Task scheduler to run a program at startup with highest privileges for all users instead.

After a recent update of 8.1 64 bit, I log onto my HP (Centrino Duo 1.3, 4 GB DDR2, 500 gb HD) laptop and find that all customized settings had been reset to default and when I tried to run any program or make changes in Control Panel, 8.1 demands an admin pasword.  I am the only user and use this laptop at home and I do not need or want that level of security on this laptop.  I need to lower the permissions threshold.  If I cannot do that, I will reinstall Windows 7 on this computer.  Please help!  I like many features on Windows 8, but requiring an admin password to do anything other than run an app is a deal killer.  Ease of use is far more important than security on this laptop.. 

A:I have to enter an admin password to run any program

yeah, it will do this.
So try this
Assuming you have a mouse right click on your desktop and go to personalize.
in the top bar click on control panel
go to User Accounts and Family Safety
Click on User Accounts
Click Change User Account Control Settings
Drop it down to Default, or one step below.  I would not go all the way to the bottom.  Why, because this would allow any program to change whatever without your knowledge.
Hope this helps

Hey everyone,

I have a program that requires admin approval to run. However, I would like this program to be used by a power user account, instead of an admin account. I cannot have the admin elevation asking to elevate w/ password every time, as I may not be available when the user attempts to use the program.

Is there a way to prevent the elevation from happening without making the program fall apart?

The program is PTPublisher, if curious. I should also mention that this is a client computer on a network.

Thanks for any help!

I am confused a bit as to how to make this work.. I need a program and a batch file to run on a schedule but they have to run under admin rights. First of all my account I sign in under is an admin account but just plain scheduling a program under task scheduler gives mixed results since it apparently doesn't start it in Admin Mode.

This entire fiasco is what I need to download EPG program data for my HTPC. The program that downloads the data is called MC2XML and I have a plain jane batch file that renames the product to a .xml extension for use in Media Portal.

I have searched and found an assortment of ideas but for one reason or another they do not get the results I need.

Any help and or suggestions greatly appreciated.

A:Need To Schedule a Program Run Under Admin Priviledges


I don't know what you have tried since you did not say but what you want can be accomplished with The Task Scheduler. The Scheduler allows running a program at Highest Privileges (which means with administrator privileges).

Hello everyone I am new to the forum and found it because I was researching a account but not only admin the program, Install in problem I want to install a program to record Skype calls Record Skype Calls with iFree Skype Recorder - Your Install program, but not only in the admin account FREE Skype call recorder software Works pretty well on my Windows XP machine And in theory Install program, but not only in the admin account works well on the Windows machine as well Only that now that I know a little more about Windows I am not using the admin Install program, but not only in the admin account account for day to day usage So there is a normal user account for all the work and then there is the admin account seperatly Now this Ifree Recorder needs admin rights to install So far no problem I am also the admin But then the program installs only for the admin account and I can't use it from the normal user accounts I already researched a little bit and it seems to be a flaw of the program that seems not to have a multiuser installer However is there any way to make the programm also accessible under the normal user account or do I really have to switch accounts whenever I want to record a call besides the security issue Would be great if someone has a solution or can definitely tell me that this is not possible - but that is the least prefered solution Best regards Holch

A:Install program, but not only in the admin account

Hi holch, welcome to the forum.

Bear in mind, that I'm assuming from all of this that Ifree Recorder doesn't need admin rights to run just Install.

Log into your Administrator Account, and navigate to C:\Users\<whatever your normal username is>\Desktop.

Drag and Drop, or create a shortcut on the Standard User Account's Desktop to the program. (WIll probably be something like C:\Program FIles\Ifree Recorder\Ifree.exe but that's just an example.) Eh Voila, now accessible through the normal account.

Standard Users have rights to access Program Files, they just don't have access to write to them.

In fact, you can probably do it from the Standard Account, but if you do it from Admin then I know it will work.

I have a program I run at startup, and it needs to run as Admin. I have made bat files eons ago, but they have to run at the cmd prompt. How can I do this in windows. I'm using Glary Utilities Startup processor.
Here is the program:
Process Explorer and when I run it I use the /t option after the process.explorer exe so it runs and goes into the sys tray.
I'm sure it's simple - for one of you guys!!

Hey, so no matter what I try, I can't get the program Miro to open in my actual account. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple versions of the program, but none of them will actually open. The only thing that has worked is by running it as an admin from the guest account, however, all of the files that I need are on my actual account.

If I double click or right click then hit "Open", I'll get the circle near my mouse that says it's working, and there will be a spike in my CPU usage, but nothing will appear. When I run task manager and look at processes, Miro will appear there, but I am unable to see it.

If I try to run as admin from my account, I get the same result.

Any advice?
