Preferred Solution: Spyway / Malware got me! Lost admin rights and cannot access C drive etc.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi;

I installed Windows7 recently. I was changing permissions and accidently denied authenticated users to C drive. I was logged in as admin which is the only account. Now I cant access anythig in C Drive and cant execute any thing. I tried through safe mode as well but of no use. How can I regain access or reset permissions.

Any help would be appreciated!

cheers

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

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?

I started my laptop today and it showed a different welcome screen ,and the touchpad scroll also stopped working.When I tried to access msconfig to know aboput startup services it showed this message ""Windows cannot find C:\WINDOWS \System32\msconfig. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again"" .The same message appeared when opening regedit and other files on C:.
Ever since my touchpad also doesnt work in between.I mean sometimes it works and sometimes doesnt.

Please provide a solution.I doubt its some virus

I'm Using Win2kPro on an IBM PII laptop with 98MB of ram and a 30G hard drive. I am established as the administrator on this machine. The problem is this, I am unable to set up my machine to receive faxes, I can send, but not receive. I have gone into the "Fax Manager" to elect the option to receive but each time I do so I receive the following error message: "Access Denied".
I've tried accessing the system administration options to reset the "permissions", reset the administrative name et al, nothing seems to be working for me. What am I doing wrong and can anyone help me out? I really need this function.

Thanks,

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.

Hi!

I just did "chkdsk /f" as someone in that chat adviced me to do because my defragmentation was not moving forward and then it said
"Access Denied"

Even though I am the administrator of the computer.
I also had a likewise error 40000 when a game was trying to update that may have also had to do with Administrator rights.
Yesterday I scanned my computer with AVG Anti-Virus free and it said I had an unknown virus? But then AVG told me it was removed or in quarantine.
I'm using windows XP 64 bit.

Am I infected? What do I do?!

Over the last couple of weeks Kaspersky has been alerting me to trojans that it has told me it dealt with. This evening I got an alert again saying it had dealt with trojan.html.fraud.d. Windows also updated itself this evening.

My PC now seems to have lost admin rights (I only found this out when I went to try and use Nero and it told me I couldn't burn). I am set up as a computer administrator. The log in and shut down has also changed 'look'.

Can anyone please help me and determine if I am infected, how I can get my PC back working normally again and have admin rights!!

I am using XP Media Edition.

Thanks in advance.

A:Lost my admin rights

Hi,

First thing you should do is back up your data.

One way you can do this is by using Ubuntu. This is completely free, and has the advantage that it can be run off a USB stick or a CD - saving you having to install it on your hard drive.

You can get it from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

Step #2 on that page shows you how to create the USB/CD.

Then once you boot into it (choose the option where it just runs off the USB/CD) you can use it to copy your files from the Windows Partition to an external hard drive (Note: Do not copy anything to the Ubuntu Filesystem as it will not be saved on shut-down)

Once your data is backed up you can decide if you want to proceed with trying to fix it or just re-install.

Regards,
Reventon

The problem is this, I am unable to set up my machine to receive faxes, I can send, but not receive. I have gone into the "Fax Manager" to elect the option to receive but each time I do so I receive the following error message: "Access Denied".

It sounds like you removed your account access permissions when you messed with those accounts. You might try the take ownership shortcut and see if it can get you back into those drives.

Or you could try to restore the Users permissions or group status using the link below.

A:Infected - Lost Admin Rights

Hey there Bob and welcome to Bleeping Computer's security forum.My name is David, I will be helping you with your log today.So far i think you've done a pretty grand job of removing all the malware off your system as the Hijackthis log above is now clean. My only concern is that you say you removed it all before and it came back again. This could be anything from a reinfection due to your lack of protection (no antivirus installed for example), or you have some hidden downloaders on your system which keep reinfecting you as long as you have them on your system. I'll do my best to root out the bad files if they are present, then try and repair any damage done by the malware. I have seen cmd.exe get corrupt a couple of times for no apparent reason, though suspected malware. Or the default path to c:\windows\system32 may be lost but that would cause a host of problems. But you could try start/run c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe to see.If not try start/run c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386\cmd.exeand see if that copy works. If so then copy it over the one in c:\windows\system32. There is also a cmd.exe in c:\i386, but that is the pre-sp2 version I believe.If not, try start/run c:\windows\system32\command.com - the old command interpreter. If that doesn't work either then likely the problem lies in the core of Windows and a repair might be in order. Let me know how that goes. I saw in your other thread that the task manager isn't working.A simple regedit should be able to fix this.Please open notepad and and copy and paste next bold in it:(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)REGEDIT 4[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]"DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]"DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000"**del.DisableTaskMgr"=" "[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system\]"DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]"DisableCAD"=dword:00000000Save this as "fix.reg" Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.It should look like this: Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.One thing we also must do is install an antivirus, you don't have one active!This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer. AVG and Avast are excellent, free antivirus programs..Never install more than one antivirus on your system - several together can cause problems and decrease performance.I also see that you have lost your admin rights.Can you logon to the Administrator account in Safe Mode? If so, you should be able to restore administrator rights to the user accounts there.If that doesn't work, while still in Safe Mode, Administrato account, try this: Go to Start>Run, type in control userpasswords2 (note the space after "control"), click OK. Double click on an account you want to change, then go to the Group Membership tab, select Administrators in the drop-down list, click OK. Do that for each user account.If you get the admin rights back, see if you can turn back on the firewall.Now, let's have a look for any remaining malware on the computer.Please download, install, and update Ewido anti-spywareLoad Ewido and then click the Update tab at the top. Under Manual Update click Start update.After the update finishes (the status bar at the bottom will display "Update successful")Then click on the Scanner tab... Read more

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.

A:Cannot CTL ALT DEL, Print, Shut down, etc. Lost admin rights

Well...seems to me that Kahdah pretty much ran the gamut of things that could work, short of a repair install effort or a clean install. I certainly can't think of much that you can try without an XP CD.Your system sounds as if it needs a clean install, but I would try a repair install first. A repair install would leave your data files and programs intact, but would give you a new set of system files. But...a repair install will not correct hardware or malware problems...I think we can rule out malware presence at this point, but the effects seem to be evident on your system.You need to see if you borrow or obtain a copy of someone's CD (same version, same SP-level) as your system. Using that, with your valid license, we could then try a repair.I believe you already tried this, but I am posting it for future use by some in similar situations where registry permissions have been changed.Reset Registry & File Permissions in XP, http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/reset-th...-in-windows-xp/.I see where some suggest that the Dial-A-Fix tool may enable resetting default permissions...but I guess I don't have much faith in a tool's ability to deal with situations that are almost 2010-ish...when it hasn't been updated in 3 years. But...trying it is better than trying nothing, IMO.Worth reading, http://www.timeatlas.com/useful_utilities/...update_problems.http://wiki.lunarsoft.net/wiki/Dial-a-fixLouis

I am not on my own computer... helping someone else to fix theirs.
We have no administrative rights and control panel is GONE! I ran the free scan from Symantec and it came up with more than I can count trojans and other stuff.... This computer 'was' sitting in a place where 'people' came in and used it for their...... uhhh.... personal 'stuff'.... so it is completely corrupted.
It is used at a small business office and would really like to repair it for them. The only thing I do know is that it he is running WinXP Home (service pack2 suppose to be on it)... it is from Dell.
I am hoping someone can help me get it up and running again.... all of his car sales 'stuff' is on it!!
Thanks

I'm not sure what happened but all of a sudden the only admin account is QBDataServiceUser23, which I understand is from using multi user in QuickBooks. Intuit is the only one that knows the password for QBDataServiceUser23 and I cannot add another account, install anything, do system restore or anything unless I have admin rights. I get a pop up every now and then that says I am logged in as a standard user. I would really like to be able to figure this out without having to reinstall Windows. I have searched and searched on the net but cannot find any info on how to get QBDataServiceUser23 off or how to add a new admin account without needing the password. Anybody have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.

A:Lost admin rights and cannot download or install anything

Perhaps a quick call to Intuit may help?

A:Lost admin rights windows 7/64 bits

Go to Start/Search and type CMD. Right click the CMD.exe icon in the Search Results and Run As Administrator. In the Command Prompt type ipconfig /Release and press enter. Your IP address should change to 0.0.0.0. Now type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Now type ipconfig /renew you should get a new IP address and the Network and Sharing should remove the yellow flag.

Hi - I have a home XP system and when I did a spyware scan a few months ago I lost my control panel and Administrator rights. I ran "Control userpasswords2," from the command line and it shows that I have administrator rights. But, when ever I try to remove or install a program the system says "access denied make sure the disk is full," or You do not have privileges contact your system administrator. I started in safe mode, created a new account, with full administrator privileges, but, that too did not work. By the way the control panel was not available in safe move. I even checked the registry for "noncontrolpanel," and could not find that entry. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks... Ronnie

A:Login Problems - Lost my Admin Rights

Have you tried booting to a Windows 7 installation CD if you have one? boot to it and on the first or second screen there is a small link at the bottom which says 'Repair my computer' (or similar). Click it and there is a system restore option. Alternatively on that same list of options there will be a Startup repair utility which may rebuild your accounts.

Does the computer log straight into the Guest account or is there a logon screen? If you goto control Panel then user accounts is an admin account listed?

Hello,
I have Windows 7.
 
I noticed that all of a sudden my option to create a new file folder disappeared.  After some searching, it appeared the problem was with the registry.  When I went to change it, the Registry is not found.
 
I continued my search and realized I had a virus. No online scans work, the internet browser just closes.
 
I have download onto a USB and copied onto the infected computer- Norton Power Eraser, Super Spyware, Malwarebytes.  They open and close immediately.
 
I came to this forum to get instructions on combo fix. 
 
I tried to pull up the command line with the winkey +R and I get the message I do not have access.
 
Can someone please help me?
 
Thanks

Well I has playing around with netplwiz in order to at least try remove the password need when I log into the computer I've managed to take out the password in the login but now the rights only in computer admin in the Lost account user the only account existent in the computer no longer has the admin rights and it's listed as guest account It wouldn't be that much of a problem if the UAC didn't prompted me every now and then like when I try to run exe files or do things that require Lost admin rights in the only user account in the computer admin rights and asked for the admin password which is quot blank quot as Lost admin rights in the only user account in the computer there is no digit in it Not only that but also there's nowhere to quot type quot the password in the UAC prompt Is there anyway to solve this I'm willing to do things as re-install windows but no format because I don't want to lose my file If you guys could show me a way to solve this without re-installing windows it would be much appreciated Thanks in advance Henrique

It wouldn't be that much of a problem if the UAC didn't prompted me every now and then (like when I try to run .exe files or do things that require admin rights) and asked for the admin password (which is "blank", as there is no digit in it). Not only that but also there's nowhere to "type" the password in the UAC prompt.
Is there anyway to solve this? I'm willing to do things as re-install windows, but no format because I don't want to lose my file. If you guys could show me a way to solve this without re-installing windows it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Henrique.



I think I would move that file you don't want to lose to an external drive or to the cloud before you loose it.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit Home Premium Edition on a Compaq CQ5320F. It recently got a virus, the FBI MoneyPak Ransomeware. I was trying to get it cleared out on another site, but was unsuccessful. I was able to restore it initially and it got rid of the FBI page, but I can no longer make admin changes and it does not recognize my LAN connection, to the point of not even acknowledging there is a cable connected. The cable works as I have plugged it into another computer and have full access to the internet with it. I am at my wits end here. If someone has any ideas please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Just a bit more flavor on my post....
1) Microsoft Security Essentials found several instances of the Trojan Win32/Squida.A running and I quarantined/deleted those.....
2) CPU Use at 100% all the time when nothing is going on
3) My son uses Minecraft all the time - no idea if his networking may be causing this??

my windows pc crashed when the battery died, on retsterting checkdisk checked the c drive, i left it to run as it generally take 15-20 minutes.
later I tried to start outlook and it failed saying the file in c:/users/terry/documents/outlook files .. is not a valid PST file
I checked the folder and the file had a lenght of zeo bytes. i clicked right mouse + restore and was offered a file from a restore point yesterday, i selected this and waited. I got a message about admin rights and clicked retry, then I got a messsage
to say the file was not found.
I could see from the folder window the old 0 bytes file had gone. but then all the restore files have gone too,
can anyone suggest a solution.

I am running windows 7 home premium, service pack 1

Good afternoon,

ok i hold my hands up. Set up an admin account seperate from my normal account. I wanted to do it so the guys here couldnt get onto my C drive while i was away from work for a few days.. Now i cant change permissions back.... I can access and run Command prompt as normal.... But not when i click on Command Prompt as admin. it cannot find the program... I am so so stuck. Cant access photoshop.... accounting software.... Nothing works..... The programs cant seem to read the C: at all.... Even sytem restors does not work... Windows cannot access c:\windows\system32\rstrui.exe

Its like there is no administrator but something is !!!

I am logged in as admin when im trying this...... Please help.... I have team viewer if anyone is kind enough to take a look....

Kindest regards,

David..
 

A:Admin Rights... I cant access the C: Please help/

Changing file permissions willy-nilly can, as you have found out to your cost, cause all sorts of unintended circumstances. To try and get it back in running order may be a real chore; therefore, what is the possibility of re-installing the OS? Do you have your personal data and applications backed up?

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!!

Good morning everyone!!

I'm about to put this computer through the wall

Here is what happened:

I transfered all of my files form my laptop to my desktop last night with the Windows Vista Transfer Cable. NOW....when I try to access documents Vista is telling me that I don't have permission?! I turned off the UAC on both computers and I have admin rights on both screen names. What seems to be the problem? It only does it on certain documents. I even looked at the properties of the folder the document is in to see what kind of permission were set in it and it says that everyone is able to view/edit.

Please help me not call a handy man to patch up a hole in the wall

Thanks!

You can burn the UBCD iso to disk on another computer or use Rufus and the iso to create a bootable USB flash drive. Backup any current data you have on the flash drive as it will be erased.

A:Account(admin rights) denied all access IMMEDIATELY upon log-in

Does Safe Mode function normally?
That is to say if you boot in safe mode are you able to perform basic functions and use the system to some extent?

If this is not a registry or av/security related problem the easiest fix would likely be SFC
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Some more specific detail of the nature of the problem and less of what you have done may be of assistance too.
If this is a problem with admin priveldges you are honestly probably better off doing a repair install
Repair Install
Than digging around trying to find the one setting responsible for the problem.
Component services and other various admin tools can get down right annoying to work with and can cause further problems if the least bit thing is set wrong.

Hi all.

Is there any way to grant a user the ability to access a compact flash reader at the device level without giving them admin rights? One of our users has a utility that writes an ISO image to CF cards, and we need to get it working without admin rights if at all possible.

Thanks.

A:Showing Admin rights but cannot access services.msc or computer managment

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

Hi guyz,

I hope you are fine and doing well. I need your help and suggestion regarding reading Windows 2003 server events without having the Admin Privileges.
The issue is that we have deployed a Centralized Log Management Tool for our servers and in order to collect the events form the Windows machines it requires Admin rights to read the events using WMI. But due to the sensitivity of the system we do not want that admin privileges be given to the Event Collector.
Is there any way that we can give it a restricted access so it can only just read the events from that remote machine (Application/System/Security).
Similarly I also want to collect logs (History Log) from IBM AS/400 system. What will be the possible way with minimum privileges to access these logs?
I will really grateful for your help in this regard.

Hi all.

I may be about to leave my workplace on an amicable basis. Rather than trying to delete everything on my machine (Dell Optiplex GX1, 500 Mhz P3) I would like to simply format my C drive. I have been led to believe that data can be recovered if simply deleted but not if a drive is formatted--please correct me if I'm wrong--I know miracles can be done with recovering data. However, we are on an NT 4.0 network and everything is clamped down tight.

The reason is that I don't want anyone to take any liberties with anything on the machine.

I searched around here for a while and did not see a solution.

All help appreciated--even if it is just to say it is impossible.

Best Regards,

Bob

Hi,

Anyone know how to allow a user with 'Power User' rights to initialize an external hard drive.

Run-as local admin doesn't quite work. I also started the initialization process then gave the drive back to the user to finish formatting in NTFS. However, the HD is 2 tb and he only got to 10 mb before Win7 quits and shoots failed error.

Any advice is much appreciated.

A:user with non-admin rights can't initialize drive

If you have the drive hooked up and you initialize it, what is stopping you from formatting it for them to begin with? It's of little use till it is formatted, a quick format takes less time than informing a user they need to format there newly initialized drive. Or am I missing something?

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)?

This thread was about the August 14th "Patch Tuesday" patches causing this issue but I have since determined IE7 is the culprit. It is the most bizarre thing i have ever see in all my years of computing. Whatever IE7 did to the machine, even un-installing IE7 and reverting back to IE6, still keeps the system change that is causing this behavior to occur. It is certainly not the Group Policies as disabling them doesn't make a difference. What I need now is a tool that can show me a "before and after" of all changes that have occurred to figure out what's getting broken.

A:Guest user can'n mount a USB drive after August 14th patches. Requires Admin rights.

Have you tried setting the Guest up as Power Users? For the USB drive are you talking about thumb drives or flash drives? I ended up changing the drive letter (after plugging the flash into the USB) to X (you could use whichever letter you don't currently use) because students and teachers were having problems accessing their thumb drives. This solved the problem for us.
Good luck!

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

I have discovered that there is a difference between the original local "Administrator" account and my (local) admin account. For instance my admin account cannot add a new user, whereas "Administrator" can.

I absolutely do not want an MS online account - I want to have a local Admin account (not "Administrator" itself) but with the same rights as Administrator, for example being able to add a new user.

This was possible in previous versions of Windows - can it still be achieved and if so, how?

A:Give Local account with Admin rights, same access as "Administrator"?`

You need to add your new local account to the administrators group. To do this log in with your original Administrator account. Then open an elevated command prompt (right click on start and select Command Prompt (admin).

Then type: net localgroup administrators "UserName" /add

where UserName is the name of your new local account.

You can check which users belong to the various groups with these commands:
net localgroup guests
net localgroup users
net localgroup administrators

Hello there. I have migrated my data to an SSD from HDD with Intel picture copy software. I had and HDD Gateway DX4860 before and now I am on HP Pavilion 550-126. The new computer comes with HDD, but I have switched to the SSD. Everything was working fine until I have start playing with IE and suddenly the system start asking me for a password to login when the computer was waking up from a no usage state. I have tried to avoid that and played a little with the Admin settings. Now the situation got progressively worse, since I can no longer get Administrative access to anything and every time I encounter that issue the pop dialog is telling me that origins are on the HDD. I do not have the original PC anymore.

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?

Once done log in as administator and either create a new admin account or change your previous one. Then disable the built in admin again...

My old laptop has suffered a catastrophic overheating/screen/videocard etc failure. Anyway, I had most things backed up, but am trying to recover some remaining emails from windows mail. I have removed the drive from the laptop, slotted it into a usb-sata drive adaptor and am able to access the root listings on it. When I try to access the 'users' to get into the \Users\(your account)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Mail files to grab the emails, that's fine, then when I try for my account, I don't have permission, click continue to get permission etc but then it just seems to loop away to itself. The original laptop had 2 users set up, neither password protected, and the one I'm accessing the usb drive from has just one user. Any ideas greatfully received...
