Vista admin rights

Q: Vista admin rights

Not sure if this is the right kind of site for me but I'm having having trouble remembering some info I was given about vista.

I'm trying to use a removal tool for AVG7.5 but even though I'm logged in as admin, it says I haven't the rights. On an old machine, I was given some settings to change in the registry to get full access which I did.

But I can't remember what changes I made.

Can anyone advise me on this please?
Sorry if I'm in the wrong place.

Preferred Solution: Vista admin rights

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.)

I at wits end...after 5 days of trying every forum and every piece of advice...I think I am now tangled in knots!

It started with not being able to run any .exe files suddenly...incl and virus udpates..and incl Vista SP1.

Went further then into not allowing a system restore and then telling me I have no permission to make changes and then NO access to the programs and the when I went into regedit....telling me I had not rights and my access was denied!! It is my computer and I am the only user and administrator!!

I can't even format it!!

What now other than stop using windows or throw it down the stairs?

Hi,

I have an Acer Aspire M1100 PC that runs 32 Bit Vista, has 2 Gigs of ram, and 144GB HD.

I run Spybot Search and Destroy. And my problem is that when I try to "Immunize" my browser, "Internet Explorer 8" it always says that I have to be logged in as an Administrator. I don't have the rights needed to perform this function. I created another user with Admin rights to verify this and is says the same thing. There is a "Guest" profile available but other than those three accounts, there are no other accounts. So both of my admin accounts apparently don't have admin rights.

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks

Broly

On Windows XP, installing iTunes requires admin rights. However, it is not good to use an admin account for regular work. For the Palm Desktop, the workaround was to grant admin rights to the user account, install the application using the user-turn-admin account, then ungrant admin rights. Will this last step cause problems for iTunes, or does iTunes require admin rights for its regular operation (outside of being installed)?

A:auto run admin rights Core Temp program at startup Vista/Windows 7

I use Windows 7 64 bit and Core Temp version 0.99.8.0 - 64 bit. It doesn't actually matter if you put Core Temp in the "Program Files" folder (or "Program Files (x86)"). I keep my Core Temp folder in the Program Files folder. If the setting above doesn't work, a couple of additional step you should follow are below (the number of the steps comply with the number of steps in the above post, so that step 12.5 below comes after step 12 above):

2.5. You can put the Core Temp folder in the Program Files folder if you wish (even thought it's controlled by Windows)
.
.
.
12.5. In the Advance Settings option, check the box "Delay task for:" and set it to "1 minute"
.
.
.
14.1. Stay at the Triggers tab and click New again...

14.2. In Begin the task, select At startup

14.3. In the Advance Settings option, check the box "Delay task for:" and set it to "1 minute"

14.4. In the Advanced Settings options, check the box Enabled

14.5. Click OK to close the dialog
.
.
.
20.5. Check the box "If the task fails, restart every:" and set it to "1 minute"
.
.
.
26. If the Core Temp icon(s) doesn't appear in 30 seconds after the start up wait more, like 2 minutes. If it still doesn't appear in the system tray, first make sure that it's not hidden in the system tray arrow. If it's in the system tray arrow, you can right click the arrow, select Properties, then select Customize notification icons and change the behavior of the Core Temp icon(s) to Show icon and notifications. (If you set the color of the Core Temp icon text to white, it doesn't appear in the system tray arrow window because of the white background, but it may still be there. Click the empty fields to check)

27. If the Core Temp icon(s) is not in the system tray or hidden, then run the Windows Task Manager. On the Processes tab, sort the processes by Image Name. Check if Core Temp.exe is in the list.

28.A. If Core Temp.exe is not in the processes list, then you probably did something wrong while scheduling the task. Go back to the Task Scheduler. Select the Task Scheduler Library from the left menu. Find the Core Temp task and verify that it's status is "Ready". If the status is "Disabled", right click the task and enable it. If the status is "Running" the task is actually running, so maybe you addressed the action in the task wrong. Check that and go over the other steps in the post above and here. End.

28.B. If Core Temp.exe is in the processes list, then you probably didn't enable 'start minimized' on Core Temp and it's window is either on the desktop or minimized to the task bar. Check that and go over other steps in the post above. End.

Hi

Ive stumbled across a problem that has been causing me grief for a few days now, every time I try to access my hard drive (C disk) it says, access is denied. Also, i cant edit permissions because I've lost admin rights. Ive tried many things including unlocking the system admin, this lets me access a few extra things like being able to use the sfc command in cmd, however, it doesn't allow me to access the C disk or change permission because it also has lost admin rights? I fear that this is a bad problem and I don't know how it happened. I have tried restoring to a previous date and that doesn't work either.

Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Shimin4tor

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

A:Windows 10 admin password reset or new account with admin rights

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

Using Win 8.1

First off, the account I'am signed on with is listed as admin type account. It's the one I had to enter my windows account email.
Since installing the new MalwareBytes 2.0 program (which went in without any problem) it put an shortcut icon on desktop. I tried too move the icon from desktop to another folder and it said I needed admin rights to do this. Usually once I click on continue it gives me access and proceeds to carry out the command.
So I followed the tutorial to build hidden admin account. I type in: net user administrator /active:yes, it completed. I signed on to the admin account and tried the same operation and it still asked for admin rights.
What am I doing wrong?

UpDate: MalwareBytes 2.0 has a self protection ability that needs to not be enabled, otherwise everything associated with the Program including program icons located anywhere cannot be moved.

Recently I did a clean install from the windows installation tool off a CD I made. Soon after logging on and making my first account (again!) I couldn't open the C drive. I messed with the owner options and made my account the owner so I could open it. Possibly before or maybe after (I'm not sure) I realised I wasn't able to use any admin settings, (like add another account or see advanced system settings) open any applications that required admin rights (like CMD or any installation file) or do anything in the system menu. I've tried to look up the solution but can't find anything that fits the description of my problem. Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance for at least reading this.

When I go to change the permissions it states I need admin privileges. The only account I have on the box is the admin however I did change the name to something besides admin. The account is definitely an admin account.

Any thoughts?

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

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.

Occasionally I need admin rights to do something. I've never set a pass as admin. How do I set myself as admin? No one else uses my laptop. Win 7 Home, 64-bit.

I've been running Windows since 3.1 and don't ever remember being asked to prove I'm admin.

A:Admin rights

Hello PinkiPad,

Ever since Windows Vista and above, the administrator account is actually runs "unelevated". When you do anything that requires elevated rights, you get prompted by UAC to approve first.

This is a security feature to prevent anything from running with elevated rights (run as administrator) without you having a chance to say Yes or No from a UAC prompt first. Anything that runs elevated has full unrestricted access to everything on the PC. This is why this is such a great security feature. Yeah, it could be a pain to have to approve first, but what's a couple of seconds to approve versus not having that option and some malware is able to run elevated in the background without you ever knowing. Run as Administrator
If you still want to be king of the castle per say, then you could enable the built-in "elevated" Administrator account to log on to for this. Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi I upgraded this week from Win XP via new install formatted drive C to Win Home Premium currently app rights? need every admin does Why Build For years I have followed a method Why does every app need admin rights? of using the C partition for the system and D and E for my application data C and E are two partitions on hard disk a Samsung GB SATA drive D is on hard disk a WDC TB SATA drive All my basic applications Thunderbird eWallet Legacy Family Tree Picture Window Thumbs Plus et al read and write to my data on the E drive and were all running fine under Windows XP Now under Windows they either need administrator rights or XP compatibility in order to have write access to the files on E I have tried the following with properties on Drive E - made myself the owner my normal user account which has admin rights - given full access to myself and authenticated users in addition to System amp Admins - when that didn't help added Everyone and gave them full access to the E Drive and all sub folders and files I am the only person using this computer Then I right-clicked on Start Documents Properties and added the E drive to the library But in spite of all this when I run any of the above-named applications they have no write access to the files on Drive E Eg eWallet tells me it only has read access to my wallet file Legacy Family Tree thinks the data is on a read-only CD ROM Thunderbird spins forever trying to access my e-mail quot local folders quot on E etc If these apps are running in the context of my user account from where I start them shouldn't they have the same rights which my account has But only if I give an application Administrator rights or tell it to use XP compatibility will it work properly and have full write access to my data files on the E drive As I'd like to avoid this if possible this can't be the way it's supposed to work could someone please tell me how to set this up properly Thanks very much Bob

A:Why does every app need admin rights?

Welcome to the Microsoft Nanny state. It's called UAC(User Account Control), and it is a right PITA for a single-user home PC. If it's any consolation , it felt even worse in Vista.

What you can do.

Make sure you are an administrator with a strong password protected account. If you don't want to have to log on all the time, go here:

start button and type netplwiz and enter (alternatively - run, control userpasswords2) to bring up user accounts dialog box

uncheck the box: users must enter a user name and password...

On the advanced tab, make sure the ctrl alt delete etc box is clear.

OK and you will be asked to confirm your password 2x.

you will also want to check the screensaver password and resume after standby password check in the advanced power settings options is behaving as you wish.

In Control panel, user accounts, change user control settings, set the slider to 'never notify', or whatever you are most comfortable with.

You may also want to create an elevated privileges command prompt shortcut. On the desktop, right-click, new, shortcut, type cmd.exe, ok. Right click the icon and under the shortcut tab select advanced and check the 'run as administrator' box, ok. you may want to change the font, layout and color options to remind you that you have superior permissions in this command window. then copy this to the start menu.

make shortcuts for your legacy applications to run as administrator in the same way, and any that need compatibility for XP, too.

Then there are the folder options, but they are generally the same as in XP to customize.

With hindsight, you may regret having bought an upgrade - a full installation with a dual boot to XP may have been a more liveable solution.

Hi. In a corporate setting, I must sometime ask for admin access to change the smallest things. So sometimes they give me admin rights, and then take them away after I'm done. How can I keep them, without having to ask IT every time? Please leave legality and ethics alone, I'm only interested in the technical procedure. Thanks!

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

A:Admin rights and .exe

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

Ok, im in a massive pickle at the moment...

I followed a tutorial on this site, allowing me to skip windows logon and go straight to the PC. I setup "netplwiz" and unchecked the "users need to ptu in a password,"

i restarted the system to see if it was working, and i got a BSOD. I restarted again, and i got another BSOD...

i booted into safe mode and unchecked that box. By accident, i also took away my only account's admin rights. I have not activated the hidden admin file, and i cant run anything as an administrator. I've tried activating the hidden admin account but i keep getting "Access denied," not even bloody system restore works!

any tips on how to fix it, or do i have to reinstall for the 5th time?

thanks for your help.

A:Admin rights

Hello Ashk, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since you no longer have a administrator account, you may be able to boot into Safe Mode again as the built-in Administrator account automatically. If so, then you can change your user account type back to administrator again.

If not, then you can try a repair install instead of a clean install.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

A:Admin rights

Because you do not have Administrative right until you ELEVATE (See the UAC dialog) until then you run with standard user privileges to prevent system files from being changed. If you want to run something with Administrative power, right-click it then "Run as Administrator"

To the best of my knowledge, a standard user can't just change their settings to administrator. I'd stay away from pet's names and birthdates as passwords. Use something that can't be guessed, a non-word combination of upper case, lower case and numbers. IE: G711efx89y

Also, engage parental controls on him as well. Vista has some good control features for parents

Exactly what were you attempting to do when this error occurred?
The hiberfil.sys file is locked for exclusive access so you will not be able to set any of it's security attributes. The error is telling you that.

Installed Windows 8, loving it. However, one thing I've noticed is that every time I try to run anything, it runs it as a non-admin. I hate specifically clicking "Run as Administrator" every time I open a program so my question is this, is there a way to make it run every program as admin permanently?

A:Admin Rights

nope, it's there for a reason. it prevents programs from really screwing stuff up without any user interaction. running everything as admin without any sort of user approval is a good way of breaking windows. it keeps you from accidentally deleting or moving something that really should not be touched.

ok im getting sick of this I've got dozens of folders on my PC that i cant delete because apparently i need admin privileges even tho i am admin Even if i switch user to the dedicated hidden admin account it still tells me i dont have the rights to delete stuff from MY OWN COMPUTER It's utterly ridiculous Cant beleive i actually bought this joke of an OS I feel completely vindicated for pirating previous versions of windows and certainly wont rights.. admin be wasting money on future versions if this is the path they are going down Do i admin rights.. really need to install XP to be able to have a clean and tidy computer I can make a new folder and instantly i dont have the rights to delete it surely that cant be normal I really dont want to have to go back to XP but unless anyone knows a way to remove this stupid and completely unnecessary behaviour it seems like the only choice i have All i want is to have account my account from which i can do anything i like and yes i do understand the risks involved in that or if not and i do have to waste admin rights.. time switching to an admin account every time i want to delete uninstall something i at least want it to work from there which it currently does not I have the UAC set to the bottom but still it tries to babysit my every move So sick of it Linux is looking more attractive by the day

You should be able to right-click on the exe file, then choose properties. On the "Compatibility" tab, there should be a checkbox for "Run as administrator", which you can check (enable) and save settings.

A:regain admin rights

I too have this issue. Windows 10 allowed my only active user, which was also an admin, to remove itself from the administrator group. I don't think past versions of Windows allowed this to occur. The OS would see the only active administrator account was about to remove its own admin permissions...and prompt the user that this can't happen.

How can windows 10 allow this!?!?

I'm currently looking for a fix or hack to remediate a gross oversight by Win10 pro.

To enable the build-in Administrator account, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
2. In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
3. When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
4. At the command prompt, type net user administrator /active:yes, and then press ENTER.
5. Type net user administrator <Password>, and then press ENTER.

Note: Please replace the <Password> tag with your password for your administrator account, removing the brackets.
6. Type exit, and then press ENTER.
7. Log off the current user account.

To revert do exactly the same thing but change

hi!

I have been searching for some info.

My new PC doesn't exhibit the desired behaviour, but I don't know how to fix it.

On this build, when I run a command-prompt (even if I run cmd, without CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER), it starts elevated



This is nice, but what's really important is, whenever I run a batch that requires admin rights, it works.

Here's the prompt opening when I run attachtimmy



This (like many of the batch files) requires admin rights, and works, as if cmd.exe has been set to run in admin mode.

On both UAC is disabled (lowered to lowest setting), so I don't get pestered for permission...

I've looked at local sec policy, and built-in admin rights elevation, but it looks untouched



any ideas?

I know you can add "run as admin", but this is not the default action for batch files (on both systems default action is open).

A:Setting up admin rights

UPDATE: I've checked the reg for instances of the "Layers" key, to see if this is how I've done it... no instances of "runasadmin" for cmd.exe

(tempted to do this if it just works... but would be really nice to ascertain how it's currently being achieved)

any processMonitor jedi's out there confirm if this could be determined using THE analysis tool?

this page speculates lots on why it "must be like this"... but, as none are the case for me, I assume it doesn't cover every scenario.

Make sure you are running Pro and not Home as Home will not have these settings. Next Boot into Safe Mode and log in as Administrator. If you do not know the password, try leaving it blank. Then you should be able to access those settings.

Hey there all i've been running Win since the first beta and have been No admin is rights and C:\ read-only having no trouble at all However a little while ago i noticed that my entire C drive has been set to read-only I was attempting to install Apache on it and it worked great However when I went to go change the config file it said i didn't have permission to save it So I checked and it seems that every file and folder was set to read-only I tried unchecking the read-only box and applying settings to all subfolders etc but it said I needed admin rights I activated the Administrator account and tried it on there and it said I needed admin privileges again I tried it through command prompt and no luck there either I tried running a virus scan rootkit scan and nothing there I eventually just reinstalled the OS with build- I was previously running Still no luck Everything is read-only still and I'm not able to edit any files on the C drive at all and it still shows up that I need admin rights However i can save files and install programs Does anyone know whats wrong or if there is a possible fix Thank you in advance by the way

gives me no admin rights... I've got an application that runs from console and requires administrator rights. I run command line from the start menu by right clicking and choosing "run as administrator". I run the app from there and I get an error saying that this app requires administrative rights to run properly. How do you run the command line with administrative rights then if not by running it with administrative rights??

Hi and welcome Beholder

Hi,
My brother thought by logging into his Microsoft account on our main computer would be very helpful. He then got admin rights. So, the past few days I have been trying to undo what he did and sure enough I have got his account off the computer. However, when making him just a standard user from admin, the account we still have on our main desktop is only a standard user as well and i forgot to change it to an admin. I tried so many different ways. I tried command prompt, safe mode to giving the local account admin but the "YES" button is still blurred out. I have no idea what to do since this a new software and every method I have tried doesn't help.

Not sure why or for what reason you are trying to do what you are doing but essentially you would create a batch file using the runas command.

I got a batch script which needs Admin privileges.
For example it installs some Programmes or move/copy files to/from System directories.

So on Windows 7 (and Vista) I can say "Run as" and I got a Message like "are you sure allowing ... bla" OK/Cancel?
But how I can get arround this MSG-Box?
How can I place the Admin Name/PW in the Batchfile? (a runas cmd i allready tried seems to don't work)

A:Admin rights for batch

As far as I am aware you are asking the impossible., or at least the stupendously difficult

You can however turn off UAC prompts completely so you just have to do Run as Administrator and it's done.

Another neat trick is start a program from within an elevated program (such as a dock); all programs opened using an elevated program themselves are automatically elevated .

So I'm a highschool student in a laptop school A vast majority of students are having problems with simple things through user error and the admins who I happen to be on pretty good terms with are tired of it SO they've decided to revoke everyone's administrative rights to their computers and make them normal users For most they wont notice the difference others will complain a Save Them! Me Help - Rights Admin little and then aquiesc etc But that's not the Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them! problem My Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them! small Admin Rights - Help Me Save Them! group of - friends or so LAN often and use admin access on a semi-frequent basis not for anything terribly technical but I would like to preserve my admin access Is there any way -any- way that I can recover these after they batch the computers They are removing them on FRIDAY which is sigh Tomorrow So If there would be a workaround circumvention recovery reassignment whatever option I could utilize I would need it very quickly and hopefully in a distributable reproducable fashion If anyone could help out that would be absolutely wonderful I've got a few ideas mostly involving the command line but I dont know nearly enough about it to make sure that this would work so I implore you to lend your collective minds to the task and find a solution and I will bend to your knowledge I'm here for the express purpose of deferring to all of your brilliant minds Thankyou Matt - Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici

My friends girlfriend has dropped her web book and now it won't boot. I took the back off and there is obvious component damage so the motherboard is shot. Its not worth the expense of replacing so she has asked if I can recover her pictures etc.

I have put the HDD in an enclosure and it works fine but when I try and access her documents folder I get the error message "the folder is not accessible. Access is denied" I am guessing it is because its the administrators account and windows XP has locked it. Does anybody know how I can get around the lock so I can retrieve her photos and documents ?

The disk is not damaged as I can access all other parts of the disk and it runs just fine
