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.)
Did you try the free version of Revo Uninstaller?http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/cant-uninstall-programs-says-need-admin-access-but-i-am-the-admin-701354.html
So just under a week ago, I wanted to disable the C drive for my kids so I changed te perms to everything disallowed then cancelled it 5 seconds in, then only allowed read. Now I want to change this back but i can't do so, can't even get into Backup and restore because System32 is locked.
I have no way of imaging it to original state. Any way, I can get it back to before? Do I need to boot from Linux? I would much prefer doing something inside of Windows or doing a system repair from boot.
Thanks for all your help!

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.

Hi There I am trying to troubleshoot a windows Sony Vaio laptop I am not sure exactly what has happened but I cannot run anything on it For example when I open My Computer and the C I get quot C is not Accessible access denied quot I can open cmd prompt but if I try to run as administrator I get and error saying cannot access The same for any admin program compmgmt MMC msconfig but it says windows cannot access this file I cant event run Task manager and cant check event viewer or anything I have tired a automatic repair but it Diagnosis the PC but returns that it cant be repaired I also tried Repair and the same occurs I also tried give administrators ownership of the C as it says quot Unable to display current owner quot but this will not allow ownership to change on pagefile sys hiberfil sys and swapfile sys along with a mcafee install I think it is the ownership error that is causing this but cant seem to solve Can anyone assist Admin run Cannot C:\ on Access any programs, Denied I am pulling my hair out Thanks
I don't have a solution but I found a page with similar issues that may shed some light:
Edit: By the way, it is noted on the utility that takes ownership via a Context Menu command, not to take ownership of C: in its entirety. You can do things like take ownership of C:\Program Files folder, if you are the only user on the system. But taking ownership of the entire C:\ partition causes problems.
Im new to Xp Pro, I installed a game in Admin mode, but want it to be accessable in user mode, how do i do that? How do i add it to the start menu?
I tried logging in user mode, went to my computer , then went to the folder the program was stored in and tried running it from there and I got an error. Went back to admin mode and ran it with no error.
Thanks for the help.
you need to access the all users folder (in the Documents and settings folder) and place the application shortcuts either on the desktop or in the start menu. with the shortcuts in that folder all users who log in will have access to them. You can also place different application shortcuts in each users profile so they only have access to them.
hello there, just wondering whether anyone could tell me how i could limit a certain user's access to programs in XP Pro. i'm one of the normal admins and know the password to the real administrator account (the one that comes up when u boot in safe mode, dont know what u call it really!). To be specific i dont want this person to play certain games and run certain programs like MS VB etc.
Thanks for ur help people!
oh btw, he's an admin himself too so he can do some other things, but like i say i might be able to overwhelm him with TWO accounts in my arsenal...mwuhaha....
There's a couple of ways to do this.
1) You can set up policies to deny the application the access to run.
2) You can deny the user access to the application or its folder(s)
The policies are invisible, the app just won't run. The deny on the application is very visible, with a nice big Access Denied flag being waved. The deny will override his administrator access for that particular application.
Hope this helps.
I am new to Windows 7 but have used XP for many years (which isn't much help in this scenario).
I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and I have an administrator account. I have two children and I want to give them access to programs on their accounts (Standard User) but it always asks for Administrator authentication whenever they run them, this is mainly on some installed games.
Is there a way that I can setup the games / programs on their accounts so they can run them without having to continually provide an admin account password everytime they start them up?
Any help greatly appreciated.
Those probably are old programs built before Win 7 or Vista came out. Try the compatibility mode settings. Right click on program exe and select Properties, then Compatibility tab.
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,

THere are 2 accounts Administrator and Kenmystro/administrator. I have the password for both and can access both. win 7 Ultimate Hp8510.
I have already selected all user permissions and taken ownership in every box I could find for Kenmystro/admin. the UAC is at minimum and the security centre is off. Run as admin on right click does not help.

okay freshly into win now having obtained a new hdd for my comp I have been running as the admin of my computer since accounts became an unavoidable thing barring the occasional frustration-induced blunder I tend to stay Properly Paranoid in my habits to make sure I have no problems but win doesn't think that I could ever be intelligent enough to have full rights on any account other than the built-in admin account which of course I'd want to avoid using outside emergencies that render other accounts damaged somehow so I'm looking to find out how to make another user account with FULL admin rights not just the constantly have to get permission stuff that a standard snort admin account has full rights that don't involve constantly having to run as administrator yes yes I've heard people trying to get me more paranoid so that I'd endure the added hassles all it does is make me more irate with the situation so if noone's willing to provide me with instruction on this it's probably best for the thread to be left to fall off the board
I don't know what your problem is. To make another administrator account - Start - Control panel - User Account -
Manage another account - Create a new account - Give it a name - put a check mark for Administrator -
click - Create Account.

Hi. When a computer is first setup, the account created is an administrative one. What happened to this account?http://www.tenforums.com/user-accounts-family-safety/37732-system-error-5-no-admin-rights-lost-admin-password-cant-reset.html
Basically I have two admin accounts one of which belongs to another member of family and one which belongs to me. Heres the situation:
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?
In urgent need of help!
Here's an article (for Win2K) that may help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309799But, IMO, the issue here is that the other person can't be trusted. In such a situation I'd suggest making the other account into a Standard User account - that way they won't be able to mess with your stuff, and they'll be reliant upon you for anything that requires administrative privileges.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/153087/prevent-admin-accounts-from-changing-other-admin-account-passwords-in-xp/
Frustrated with admin rights - Please help me.
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?
Hello and welcome!
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 safehttp://www.tenforums.com/user-accounts-family-safety/38274-windows-10-admin-password-reset-new-account-admin-rights.html
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.

you cant change an admins pw from a guest account....at all
only way to change the admin pw is to boot to safe mode and enter the sys admin account or use a hacking program iso which you can find easily but use at your own risk....

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

First off, the account I'am signed on with is listed as admin type account. It's the one I had to enter my windows account email.
Since installing the new MalwareBytes 2.0 program (which went in without any problem) it put an shortcut icon on desktop. I tried too move the icon from desktop to another folder and it said I needed admin rights to do this. Usually once I click on continue it gives me access and proceeds to carry out the command.
So I followed the tutorial to build hidden admin account. I type in: net user administrator /active:yes, it completed. I signed on to the admin account and tried the same operation and it still asked for admin rights.
What am I doing wrong?
UpDate: MalwareBytes 2.0 has a self protection ability that needs to not be enabled, otherwise everything associated with the Program including program icons located anywhere cannot be moved.

I have an application written in our own scripting language, which includes its own installer, which works fine if run with Admin privilege. We can get Vista to check for admin privilege by naming the image xyz_INSTALL, but how can I get Vista to recognize that Admin privilege is required to UNinstall? If I uninstall from Control Panel without Admin privilege, no warnings appear and the uninstall goes south by not being able to delete its files. I've read about manifest, but it's unclear where a private language would make it visible to Uninstall, or are the registry fields I can set? Thanks.

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?

I'm just getting a new HP Envy - computer set up Came with and then was upgraded to I started with a Microsoft id which set me up as Administrator and that's working fine I set up a Local account with Type Administrator which it shows in the User Account profile I expected that this new Admin account would be a full-on Admin with the ability to see and edit all files pictures documents etc including system stuff but it does none of that If I check the Properties Security on a folder file it will show the account saying that it is Admin and showing the same controls as my Admin account but it is unable to see any of the set but as Admin, as New Admin account doesn't 8.1 work Library documents which reside in the structure under my Admin name which is where I pasted them after copying from my Win machine I haven't really done any other testing to see what else it could could not do once I found it couldn't even pick a new account picture for itself Are my expectations wrong or is there something else I should have done or done differently I have deleted and then recreated it I haven't done anything with Homegroup as there is nothing to share Should I We're a single computer printer home My goal is too have New 8.1 account set as Admin, but doesn't work as Admin only two accounts This new one as Admin account and a new Standard account for daily use both as Local Accounts New 8.1 account set as Admin, but doesn't work as Admin then remove my Microsoft Admin user account Thanks for your help
Have You taken ownership of them?
This should work in windows 8.1 too. It works in My Windows 8.
Take Ownership of a File or Folder
Read the directions.
An administrator can take ownership of any file on the computer.

See Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable about enabling the built-in admin account.

I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins).
Any suggestion on what to do?

There is a user Dad with admin privileges on a Windows machine this is me There are other users kid and kid with no admin privileges my kids - I want to let kid and kid access the contents of a directory in my userspace C Users Dad In fact it's not users wants a directory share to non-admin Admin with at the top level let's say it's C Users Admin wants to share a directory with non-admin users Dad ownCloud photos because it is I want Admin wants to share a directory with non-admin users to let kid have read write access and kid read only access I navigated my way to C Users Dad ownCloud and then right-clicked on photos clicked on properties clicked on the sharing tab and did what looked like the sensible thing gave the kids the required access I then logged in as kid and attempted to find my way to C Users Dad ownCloud photos I got there -- but on the way I saw far too much -- kid can see a complete list of the names of all files and directories in D Users Dad not ideal and also names of all files and directories in C Users Dad ownCloud which is not acceptable because that is my entire life in the cloud Is this expected behaviour when sharing directories in Windows If not what did I do wrong If so then this is no good and I guess I need a workaround The problem is that I am not at all sure that I can move the directory because it part of a cloud storage service like Dropbox but a different company and as far as I know that directory ownCloud photos the one I want to share with my kids must be a subdirectory of ownCloud the one that I really don't want my kids to be able to view the contents of Also not a viable solution is re-organizing the directory structure of ownCloud i e putting photos at the top and everything else in another directory called quot not for kids quot or whatever -- the problem with that solution is that this directory ownCloud is shared by me on many machines and if I start changing things around then various scripts running on other machines would immediately fail -- the directory structure cannot be messed with I think I need to have most directory names in C Users Dad ownCloud not visible but the entire directory C Users Dad ownCloud photos visible I'm not worried whether the kids can access the directory directly or via some network share or anything -- I just don't want them to see the names of all files and directories in C Users Dad ownCloud In unix this would be easy to do because one has very fine control on who can see what one could remove read access from C Users Dad but still allow read access to subdirectories How does one do that in Windows PS Lol quot I'm having trouble sharing quot a clickable option on the Share window That sometimes applies to my kids -- nice to see that it applies to me today
NTFS Folder Permissions
I'm thinking if you create a symbolic link in C:\Users\Public you may be able to let the kids go directly to the shared folder. Perhaps then you can deny Traverse permission to block the parent folder. But I haven't done it myself.
Stoik Joker,who has the NTFS permissions page in the above link, is also a regular poster on DonationCoder.com. You may be able to ask for clarifications there. And of course someone with SysAdmin type experience may chime in here.
If you succeed using external info please post the solution.

This is probably going to seem rather stupid of a question but have you disabled UAC?
To disable it on Win7 : Disable UAC in Windows 7
to disable it in Vista : Disable User Account Control in Windows Vista
If you haven't already tried that, try disabling it and rebooting.
UAC is User Account Control. It's that window that pops up every time you try to run anything asking "Are you sure you want to allow this to run?"
Sometimes disabling that can fix A LOT of admin power related issues.
Sorry if this doesn't help you at all, but it's fixed problems for me in the past.

I know that there is a way to run all programs as administrator without having to set it in the compatibility menu, but how do you do it. I'm running windows vista home premium and I'd like to know how to do that as it would help me a lot. Also another thing, how can you get rid of the popups that come up saying 'Continue', like when you make a new folder you have to go through aload of popups, how can you stop them coming up.
Thanks in advance.
Its called User Account Control (UAC)
Go to "Control Panel"
Then "User Accounts and Family Safety"
Then "User Accounts"
Then "Turn User Account Control on or off"
Then "Untick" Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer
It will wont to restart
Having recently rebuilt Win 2k due to corruption because of using it as Administrator, I now intend to use it as a Standard or Restricted User; but although all of my programs run fine from the Administrator account, some of them will not run from the other account. Have given the other accounts Full Control in Security Properties but still no good. Any suggestions please.
PS I had several 'tech support chats' with MS and was given a phone number to ring which is unobtainable.
I have found the answer myself! Actually with a little help from Ansys Tech Support.
Log on as Administrator:
You need to use regedt32.exe (regedit.exe will not do) and in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE click Security and Permissions AT THE TOP OF THE SCREEN! Click Add, select Everyone in the next top screen, click Add in the middle, and OK at the bottom. Back in the Security screen, Select Everyone in the top screen, and click the READ box in the lower screen to put a tick in it.
This has enabled all of my Restricted users to use any program.

I think your system is infected with malware, try these basic security checks:Is your Anti-virus program current and updated? If not you can download a free anti-virus program here (US Link): AVG FreeWhen you have downloaded and installed it you need to go online to register it and update it. (It will probably prompt you to do this.)Once you have installed AVG uninstall your old Anti-Virus software because you should only have one running on your system.Do you have any anti-spyware installed? If not download and update all of the following:Ad-Aware SE from http://www.lavasoft.de/

Hi all I'm a new member to the site and I have a question regarding a new install of Windows on a new SSD only admin run work as will if Some programs I upgraded my system three weeks ago and swapped out the mobo CPU Some programs will only work if run as admin RAM and hard drive Because of this I did a fresh install of Windows on the new Gb SSD Last week I noticed that some programs will only run if I right click and run as an administrator for reference when I try to double left clik to run nothing happens No cursor change no spike Some programs will only work if run as admin in CPU RAM activity nothing at all I have a few storage drives upon which I install all non-system programs and the odd thing is that any program that predates the new install of Win will run absolutely perfectly if I left click as normal Any program installed after the upgrade will only work if I right click and run as admin I've run MBAM BitDefender AdAware and Nod and there are no viruses that I can find I thought it might be that the computer has lost the association for exe programs but that isn't the case if older programs run fine from a left click I have turned UAC off and that hasn't done anything to help So this is a cry for help i feel sure that I am missing something fundamental but as I have never encountered this issue beofre I have no answers Googling this question just turns up a lot of people who appear to have the same problem for ALL programs which I don't and there are numerous 'fixes' many of which I have tried to no avail Any help gratefully received please Thanks
I created another user account and this one has no problems left double clicking and running the programs that my other account had issues with. Now i'm really stumped. I guess I could delete the first account and transfer everything over to the new account but it looks like it will be a faf and might be better to just reinstall windows. EDIT: Running the main account in Safe Mode allows me to interact with programs properly. I ran virus/malware scanners whilst in Safe Mode and still nothing. Computer all clean. Any help gratefully received please.http://www.sevenforums.com/software/247811-some-programs-will-only-work-if-run-admin.html

I have two Windows VMs, one Windows 7 and the other Windows 8. On both machines there is an account with administrative rights. On the Windows 7 VM if I run a DOS cmd window it is run with with administrative rights. However, on the Windows 8 VM the DOS cmd window has NO administrative rights.
Has anything changed between Windiws 7 and 8 in this respect?

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?
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?
Why should users have admin credentials in the first place? Why are you letting them install applications? Or change settings? Your setup makes no sense what so ever.http://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/188915-domain-admin-vs-local-admin.html
My problem is that even though I have only one user account defined on my machine and it is set to "Administrator" it is not being allowed to do admin types of things like deleting folders. I tried to create a user group but that's not an option on the Win7 Home Premium version that I use. How can it be that the sole account is not the admin even though it shows that it is in the account user setup?

There should be an admin account with full rights that was created when Windows was installed but it is usually only available when booting into safe mode. When safe mode starts, he should see an admin account and his account. Have him select admin and then go to control panel, user accounts. There he should be able to set up accounts and change the rights on existing accountshttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/220507/admin-acct-has-no-admin-privileges-xp-pro/

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.
All because of this, I can't change the .ini of a game, I can't update Neverwinter Nights using the updater, I can't save .inis or .txts anywhere except documents...It's annoying.
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.
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...

Ok a few days ago my computer started to act weird. I can't do ctrl alt delete nor can I do a system restore because it says the computers admin disabled these tasks. Problem is is that I AM the admin. I have to be since I'm the only user on it. So I'm guessing is a virus of some sort. But after running 5 different virus scanners... nothing has changed. They found plenty of viruses but I'm still not counted as the admin.
I would have done a clean install of Windows XP but I lost the key code years ago. What the hell do I do?

There are a plenty of ways to retrieve the activation key unless the installed version of XP is pirated/ illegitimate. Here are a few articles that will help you out in doing so:

Once, you retrieve your code, write it down on a paper and put it in a safe pace. Hope that will get you through. Good Luck.

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.
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.
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.
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?
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:
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 http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner-popup/ (If you used another web browser, such as Firefox, you will have to download an installer file)
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".
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 am trying to carry out the steps in the Hijack this and malware removal instructions, but cannot get the Kaspersky scanner to run.

So here is an interesting problem I ran into after working on the family computer (I was away at college and just got back for break).
After removing all the viruses, I was left with a computer where both the main user account and the Admin account did not have Admin rights. I can log into the Administrator account, but I cannot do even the most simplest of things, such as open Control Panel. So, I am at a loss to fix this. So simply enough, how does one restore administrative rights to the admin account when it has lost them.
Windows XP Home SP2
Control Panel, and many related functions, along side with such things as leftclick->properties on My Computer do not work (It says privilege removed, contact admin).
Even the Help will not open.
Please download Trend Micro's HJTInstall.exe to your Windows Desktop.
Doubleclick HJTInstall.exe . The application will install by default to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis
Click on the Install button. A shortcut icon will be created on your Windows Desktop.
When the installation finishes, the HijackThis application will launch.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. When the scan is complete, a log file should open in notepad.
On the notepad document, click Edit>Select All>Edit>Copy and then paste the contents of the log file into your next reply to this thread.
>>Please-Do Not use the Analyze This button-the results can be dangerous if misinterpreted.
>>Please-Do Not have HijackThis 'fix' anything yet. Most of what if finds will be harmless or even required.
Hey guys, I have an odd issue the other day I went to open word and it started and said it was not installed right, then the same thing happens with windows live.

My account on my computer has administration rights I have this issue from time to time that if a setup exe is for example started via firefox a window pops up stating I Troubles admin although installing i'm programs, some should enter the password for the user quot Administrator quot although I have never configured Troubles installing some programs, although i'm admin such a user password and although I DO have admin rights with my current user When I start such a setup exe via explorer the normal UAC prompts where I can continue or start the exe via rmb gt start as admin Also this Admin-login-type-window shows up from time to time when I try to move files from C f ex because some stupid program installed itself there What SHOULD show up in my opinion is the quot really want to quot -admin-continue-button-window Due to this being bypassable it's not a huge problem but it is kind of a blow to the workflow my friend talked something about root-privileges that are tied to that supposed admin-account but I dont know about that stuff in my opinion when my normal-user-account with admin-rights wants to install something windows should f cking do it and bring up the UAC if necessary not a login-window for an administrator I never configured any ideas

I recently installed a new computer (Dell Optiplex 745c, with XP Pro). I'm connected to a domain, but don't normally run as an administrator on the domain (I can log in as administrator if needed). I find that certain programs, such as Delorme Topo Maps 7.0, and Golden Eagle Flight Prep 2007, won't run unless I either log in as an administrator, or right click and "run as" a user with admin rights. Other programs, like MS Office, Photoshop CS2, etc. don't require this. This doesn't happen on other computers on the domain.
What gives? Is there a setting somewhere I've missed?
Welcome to TSG....
There is a way to get on-line and use the computer as a low-admin account while on-line and then when off-line the windows reverts back to full admin.

I am the only admin on a laptop shared by several people including a teenager who is not very responsible. I have a user account w admin privileges as well as the Administrator account. I have noticed that when I change a program, eg upgrade Firefox, on the user/admin account that the Administrator account Firefox doesn't change. Is this normal? Does it mean effectively that things like Windows Updates are user-specific?
And when I run my antivirus, will it see everything on all users plus administrator, or not? Can I delete other users' cookies etc.
I have an HP laptop, run Win XP Pro SP2 fully up to date, Firefox 95% of the time, Kaspersky, Spybot Search and Destroy, SnoopFree, Winpatrol (but last 2 just added last few days). Thanks.
It will vary based on the program. Windows updates is a system-wide thing, but I believe this will only run for Administrators. Firefox keeps everything separate so addons and updates for one user don't affect the rest. Most antivirus programs will update for the whole system as well as scan the whole system for viruses. Some older ones, however, may not allow a full scan in a limited account.
Earlier today my PC crashed while playing a video game It went to a red screen and restarted I wasn't too worried at the time it had happened a couple times already with the game I had been playing so I thought it was just a game glitch When it restarted I went to open up Firefox to browse but accidentally hit windows media player and when it came up it just froze right away I tried to open tsk manager and that wouldnt open Internet still worked though so I ignored it and thought it was a random glitch But now I've realized after coming back windows media player is still stuck can't open tsk manager can't start firewalls can't get help! please open any Cant admin files/programs, into control panel and if I tight click on any application and hit run as admin itopen Cant open any admin files/programs, please help! an error box saying it didnt respond In a timely fashion I'm suspecting malware idk sorry if it didn't make sense or had errors I wrote this on my phone I'm off computer just in case but Firefox still works Edit this is probably in the wrong section sorry Idk how to change it though
I am guessing you are running Windows 8, if you got a red screen. Really need to know the error that came up when your system crashed, by downloading "Who Crashed", and posting the results from the dump log from when your system crashed.
Fyi, you need to post what OS you are running, what version of FF, what game or program you were using when the system crashed, etc., in order to get better help. Just stating that your system crashed, and now everything is fine, is like walking into the doctor's office, and telling them that you had a bad sinus infection, but it is gone now, and then trying to get them to prescribe you medication for clearing something up that has gone away.

The message says "The system Administer has set policies to prevent this installation."
I have tried everything.

Run the software setup file as an administrator and check if it helps.
a. Right click on the setup file of the software that you are trying to install.
b. Select "Run as administrator".
Temporarily disable the antivirus software running on the computer and check if you are able to install the software.
Disable antivirus software
Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.
a. Click Start, type "Local Security Policy" (without quotes) and press enter.
b. Click on Software Restriction Policies.
c. In the right pane, double click on the "enforcement".
d. Select "All users except local administrators".
e. Click Ok and restart the computer and check if the issue is fixed.
kindly revert for further clarifications
Thanks and regards,

When I run, for example, command prompt under admin, my system wide shortcuts for winamp ("+" on Num Pad) are not working in that program
Could you explain that a little better ?http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/32464-shortcuts-not-working-programs-run-under-admin.html
I am completely STUMPED on this issue I spoke to the MicrosoftHelps Twitter and they are sending me in circles Most of the programs on my PC won't connect to the internet unless I run UNLESS mode connect admin won't to they're in internet Programs them in Admin Mode A few examples are Google Chrome and Google Updater Dropbox OnLive and Air Mouse But the strange thing is is that some programs DO Programs won't connect to internet UNLESS they're in admin mode connect Skype iTunes and IE Basically this happened out of the blue There were no programs installed just before it or anything I did however do a system update and each time after I did a system restore the connection came back I figured that was my solution so I undid the updates and hid them The connection was fine for about - days then randomly I couldn't connect again Then I did a Firewall reset Windows Firewall and that got it working again for about a day or then back to the start And I added the specific programs to the trusted list but that didn't help and in fact some of them were already there Also sometimes when I turn on my PC everything works but a simple restart can change that I'm SERIOUSLY confused and I have NO idea what's going on BTW I do not have any Anti-Virus or Firewall installed because I uninstalled them during troubleshooting but that didn't help either ANY help I can get would be great I REALLY want this issue to go away I've been plagued with it for about a month and a half now
Any downloaded programs are usually blocked, including ones from MS and should be unblocked the run as admin to install.http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/188009-programs-wont-connect-internet-unless-theyre-admin-mode.html
Hi everyone I have a small problem I'm running windows pro and it appears windows is protecting it's program folders or system folders anyways from unauthorised modification So for example I have Trion's Defiance which I play from time to time and it starts through a patcher that can't patch unless I chose to run as administrator certain admin How to stick that rights programs give Yet if I How to give certain programs admin rights that stick look at properties and tick quot run as administrator quot it doesn't stick my account has admin rights I also changing the patcher exe's rights i e All application packages and giving it all rights modifying sub folders etc But that doesn't seem to work either The only thing that makes it work properly is quot run as administrator quot And I want to be able to execute this certain exe with administraror rights every time without the need to click on it every single time I guess I could just reinstall the game in a non-program folder but I'd like to have it there Plus that might help with other programs too
Did you right-click a shortcut or the actual executable when you checked "run as admin" and it didn't stick?
Did you go one step further and click the "change settings for all users" at the bottom of the view and click "run as admin" there?
Run as Administrator - in Windows 8
Is it better to use the Administrator account to set up my programs and log out of it when I'm done setting them up, or does it even make a difference since it says I'm an administrator and can use the administrator by right clicking on the installation setup...I'm trying to understand just one thing, should all programs be setup under the administrator by either method and create a standard user to run them, cause even though your running it as administrator isn't that a security risk, shouldn't you screate a standard user and use that account?
By Gregrocker I found this little tidbit which makes perfect sense...Thanks Greg:
You are going to be kept quite busy keeping up with your two accounts.
The first thing I do when I install WIndows is enable the hidden adminsitrator account, log off, log back in as Administrator, delete my named account in User Accounts, then run as Administrator full time.
I cannot see that I lose any level of security by doing this since I already know what I am doing.
What I do lose is being second guessed on every thing, having access to files forbidden, and just about any other annoyance that once gave my computer more control over itself than it allowed me.
Hello, I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
I just got the hp p6823w computer and my user account is set to administrator.
Windows won't let me Install/Uninstall any programs. The Install program problem only happens with a .MSI file extension. I also can't "Run as administrator" on anything but a .EXE file extension. Also, if all this wasn't bad enough. Windows troubleshooter finds no error.
Additionally, I downloaded a Microsoft Mr. Fix it tool for the install/uninstall programs.
It returned a corrupt registry key for that program. I ran Ccleaner and nothing...
I am good with windows 7 but this is crazy!
Thanks in advanced,
Hello CProgrammer3088, and welcome to Seven Forums.
You might see if either one of the tutorials below may be able to restore "Run as administrator" to the context menu of the other file extensions. Run as Administrator - Add or Remove from Context Menu in Windows 7
Run as administrator - Add to MSI File Context Menu
Run as administrator - Add to VBS File Context Menu
Hope this helps,
I seem to have a problem with some programs not running at startup.
Found out some of them need to be run as admin to even work. So changed the exe to run in admin mode and that worked, but not for startup.
Then with a shortcut tried properties-advanced- run as administrator and placed it in C:\Users\(User-Name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
That did not work,- taskmanager start-up has it as enabled, and in the registry its under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\run
Tried also to make a schedule to strat the program on either strat or log in, but no go.
Anexample is a autohotkey exe and run it as admin, that will not strat.
Win 8 64bit pro with windows defender.
I just noticed this occurrence too. I had some apps that didn't autostart although they were put in the start-up folder and I figured that startup didn't work in windows 8 and that the folder was just an "old relic" from windows 7, but then I noticed that some apps did start and then it struck me that those apps that wouldn't autostart were set to be run as administrator. I disabled it and rebooted and it worked. This is really weird and very annoying as the paranoid security in windows 8 forces me to run a lot of windows 7 apps as administrator to get them to work properly. E.g. there's a touchpad server that I use to have my android phone as a touchpad that I have to run as administrator to get it to work within XBMC. If I don't run the touchpad server as admin then it stops working when I open XBMC. There's a lot of other similar weird stuff that only gets solved by using the run as admin solution.http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/14352-problem-startup-programs-running-some-admin.html
Programs wont run on my laptop (and its not the usual .exe programs not running problem). When i click on the icon of a program, nothing happens at all or sometimes the cursor has a loading icon next to it and that's as far is it gets. Also when i do click on an icon, i cannot click on anything else after that, not even start.
Alongside this problem, the network connection icon on the task bar (2 computer screens) always has a red X on them even though i am connected via wifi, and it will not let me open network connections from that icon or from control panel.
One final problem is that Windows live one care wont run either so therefore i am vulnerable to threats online.
I am running Windows Vista on a HP laptop.
Any help on any of this would be greatly appreciated!
Sounds like Virus issues to me if you could try running a scan on your PC in Safe Mode, also let me know if the same problem occurs in Safe Mode
To access safe mode Restart your PC then during the boot process keep tapping F8 until you get to the Advanced Boot Menu, where you should then select Safe Mode with Networking and be sure to update your Anti-Virus before scanning if need be.
Well this may have to do with a bunch of reformatting after ridding malware from my system but now I m wondering how to fix without programs admin run unable to option choosing this issue whenever I click on one of my programs shortcuts or applications it acts like it starts with the icon unable to run programs without choosing admin option being selected and the loading circle but shortly stops after and in the task manager leaves the application with around k- k on the processes I can only run programs if selected to run as admin but unfortunately then most of my programs can t be run as admin I m really wondering what s the issue and some of my more-so tech savvy friends are puzzled by this Some suggestions I ve seen are to do a system restore to before this issue started but unable to run programs without choosing admin option some of the dates for a system restore contain a very viscious malware so with this option I m wondering if I skip over the date in which I had and contracted the malware will it restore as it dose in some cases note I m new to these forums so if any admin somehow move this to a more appropriate thread please give some insight on my issue but I m sure this belongs here as it s operating issues now not malware Another thing is that I d really appreciate any advice anyone has This isn t a crippling issue but a very annoying one at thathttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/394744/unable-to-run-programs-without-choosing-admin-option/
On a new Windows Installation Install Admin Enter to Programs Credentials Must I created a local non domain user This is typical for me I had no idea the first user is the quot magical quot user Then I added the domain user and made sure Must Enter Admin Credentials to Install Programs it was an Administrator both on the Metro settings and on the Desktop Must Enter Admin Credentials to Install Programs At least if I go in now and look it claims to be an Administrator Then I joined the company Must Enter Admin Credentials to Install Programs domain and that seemed to work OK And then I made the account a Microsoft Account type user Now whenever I install a program it wants Admin Credentials I put in the Domain Admin credentials and that works to install the program But this happens over and over again as I am moving from Windows to Windows I read that any secondary users cannot install programs without being changed into an Administrator Well I did that but it still does the same thing Since I am part ways through my switch to Windows I would rather not start over again if there is some way to fix this although I don't want to disable UAC either It just seems like I should be recognized as an Admin and yet I'm not Any ideas where I went wrong
I may have found the problem. Maybe. The user profile situation seems different on Windows 8 from Windows 7. I still have to test further and make sure this solves it.
Let's say that the computer name is Comp1 and the user's name is Paul. And this PC is joined to domain1.
Going into Control Panel/User Accounts, I see 2 accounts listed:
Notice how they both have the computer name as the domain. On windows 7, seems like after I joined the domain, I would end up with a profile of domain1\paul.lastname . Maybe I'm not remembering this correctly.
So anyway, after going into the PC as the first initial user (Comp1\Paul), then I went into control panel/User Accounts and added domain1\paul.lastname as an administrative user. My files are stored under Comp1\Paul, but now, when I logon as
domain1\paul.lastname, suddenly I got an install to work without asking for an administrator's credentials.
So why did this work like that, do you suppose? I'm going to mark it as solved, in any case.
