The System Administrator Has Set Policies To Prevent This Installation

I keep getting this message when attempting to uninstall Java v13. I am already the administrator. How do I get rid of this assinine message and uninstall my program? Clicking on the message box shows this message:

Installed Updates

You do not have sufficient access to uninstall Java(TM)6 Update 13. Please contact your system administrator.
How do I contact myself?

Cannot Unistall Programs:the System Administrator Has Set Policies To Prevent This Installation
I am the administrator for my computer, I sign in and go to my control panel and when I select a program I want to unistall it says "the system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation" for one I am the system administrator and I am trying to uninstall, not to install, this is really starting to tick me off. I have went to the trouble section on windows. I have right clicked on it and tried to even check in as administrator and that option is not available in control panel, it is in menu options, but it does not let me uninstall in menu opitions.

What Is The Administrator Password? What If I've Never Set It?
I have heard of the "administrator password" for a super-administrator.But I have never "set" the "administrator password" or "super admin password".I do, however, have a user account with admin privileges that I set a password to. Does my creating a user account with admin privileges and password make the password for the super-admin the same, or will the vista admin password still remain blank?I'm wondering if this is the case, if a hacker tried to break into my system to grab files, if I never set the administrator/super-admin password, does that mean there is none, and they just walk right in, or does it default to the password I have on my user account with admin

Installation Of Multiple Boots - Clone Disk Image And Set Up Boot Manually?
I have a need to install 4 systems of Vista on a single machine (4 partitions of my main system hard disk). Given that Vista always seems to see its own system drive as C, would it be possible to create my "master image" with SP1, all my drivers, utilities, system tweaks, and other "generic" applications (like Office/Acrobat etc), and then just clone this drive across to all the partitions I need to set up (on D, E, and F). Then, using VistaBootPRO, I could edit the BCD to include all the other partitions. Can anyone think of a reason this would not work?

Access Folders Under My Name (set Up As Administrator), Most Of The Time I Get Access Denied
I try to access folders under my name (set up as administrator), most of the time I get access denied. It is driving me nuts. I want to change the start menu and get rid of a bunch of garbage but I can't enter the folder to do so. When I use the start menu program, it only has a few basic folders. This happens frequently, even when trying to view pictures or video in the folder. What do I need to change to remove this very annoying problem?

System Administrator?
hi to all and tnx in advance for support,i've installed 4Gb RAM on my Notebook Toshiba with Intel T5500,Northbridge Intel i945PM rev. 03 and Southbridge Intel 82801GHM (ICH7-M
DH) rev. 02.

After memory update i've installed *Vista x64 Ultimate SP1* and System Info under Control Panel says 4,00Gb Ram Memory but *Task Manager says only 3069Mb Physical Memory*.

Moreover i ran msconfig and deselected MaxMemory flag in Advanced Options under Boot tab (as i saw somewhere on internet )but nothing changes. The bios recognizes correctly 4Gb, and programs like CPU-Z recognizes 4Gb, but msinfo says:

- - Installed Physical Memory (RAM): *4Gb*-

- - Total Physical Memory: *3Gb*.-

Blocked Administrator Account: System Retore Error
I tried to change my SID number (Security Identifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) with a program called newsid.exe (NewSID v4.10) and it closed out before it was done. Before this happened, I had only one account named 'Rhodes' with administrative privileges and no password. Then I restarted my computer and it had an account named 'Rhodes' and an account name 'Other User'. I clicked on Rhodes (it still had no password) and it went to my desktop but the desktop looked like it was when I first got it, at factory default settings. Everything I had downloaded was gone, including my music, programs, and pictures.

All my settings had been reset to default. And administrative rights were gone. The first thing I did was look at my Users in Control Panel and all I saw was 'Rhodes' and disabled 'Guest'. I didn't see 'Other User' here so I went and looked on my C Drive and found the 'Users' folder and checked in there. It has a 'Rhodes' and a 'Rhodes.RhodesPC'. If I click on 'Rhodes' it tells me I don't have permission to access this folder. If I click on Rhodes.RhodesPC it brings me to the folders of the account I am currently on (the 'Rhodes' without administrative privileges). I have tried creating a new administrator account a few different ways (including an elevated command prompt in safe mode) but I can't get anything to work. And I can't get to the hidden administrator account in Vista, I tried that too. What I'd like to do is gain access to my old 'Rhodes' account, the one with administrative rights. I tried System Restore but I get the error 'There was an unexpected error: Class not reigstered (0x80040154) Please close System Restore and try again.

Installation Vist And Reboot System
i have windows vista on my machine, i must have installed some software that has messed up my system, i keep getting the blue screen. everytime when i reset the machine, i have to press f8 then select that option: last known configuration'. this is the only way to start it, otherwise the blue screen appears.I feel that the only way to stop all this, is by doing a system reboot where my hard drive will be formatted and installs the OS from scratch.i orginally upgraded vista from XP when i have a student account with my univeristy, but then i had to pay approx ??200 for a new product key but i have not got a vista CD.

Did Not Find The Older Window Operating System Or Xp Installation
I am presently using 96SE. my ISP no longer supports this version as do some unit is not powerful enough for either xp or vista I am in my eighties and some of my colleagues tell me that vista has a pretty high learning curve, have found both windows 95 and 95se very user friendly. I can get a new unit from Dell loaded with either XP or Vista, i would like to keep current but do not want to become overwhelmed by new technology. I am not a power user but did not find the older window operating system too challenging, the tasks i presently perform are pretty basic my question is given my age and experience level could i handle Vista or should i opt for the XP version.

I would like to change the "Disk Drive Policies" (see attached screenshot). If I check the box "Enable write caching on disk" and "Enable advanced performance" and then click ok and after that I reopen the "Policies" again evrything is like it was before I made the changes. Is there anything I can do in order that the changes I make will be accepted and won't jump back to the previous settings?

How Can Registry Editor Policies
I have just purchased a new computer (a Dell Inspiron 545) but I am having a problem with the recently used program list in the start menu. Random programs are showing up in there without me using them and the programs I do use aren't getting added. I have checked the settings and both of the necessary checkboxes are ticked. So I had a search on this forum and found a post that advised you to change a file in the registry at this address : HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesExplorer however in the registry editor treeview the Policies folder is empty.

Cannot Find Local Security Policies
I need to map a network for school, but the network is incompatible with the default security. My school's website had a set of instructions for how to make my computer compatible, but they required going into Administrative Tools and then to Local Security Policies, and for some reason Local Security Policies is not there.

Basically my question is where the heck did Local Security Policies go? I feel like this should be an easy enough question, but nothing I've tried has worked.

Deleted Your Cookies :privacy Policies
More than half of the internetís top websites use a little known capability of Adobeís Flash plugin to track users and store information about them, but only four of them mention the so-called Flash Cookies in their privacy policies, UC Berkeley researchers reported Monday. Unlike traditional browser cookies, Flash cookies are relatively unknown to web users, and they are not controlled through the cookie privacy controls in a browser. That means even if a user thinks they have cleared their computer of tracking objects, they most likely have not. Whatís even sneakier? You Deleted Your Cookies? Think Again.

Fresh Installation Of Vista Home Premium Freezes System Randomly
After a fresh installation of Vista Home Premium, my pc freezes randomly. If i decide to wait it out it magically unfreezes but this is a constant habit. It leaves the pc clock frozen at the time of the freeze. Suprisingly it lets me play full screen games but nothing else. Reinstalled multiple times, downloaded all updates with no change. Perhaps my motherboard isnt compatible? or my graphics card is just dumb?

All I really want to do is remove these for this local account

Tweak User Account Control (UAC) With Security Policies
To cut down on malicious software applications and beginner computer users from changing critical computer settings, Microsoft has included a new feature called User Account Control, primarily known as UAC. UAC is a great step in the right direction. It can be used to prevent a beginner computer user from making changes to their computer by restricting them from accessing or even saving any changes to critical areas.  UAC is also helpful against Spyware and other malicious software because it will require the user to consent to the action, before any system changes are made.

UAC is a good feature but sometimes it is necessary to tweak it a little so that it is less annoying for more experienced users. For example, an advanced user may be overwhelmed by the number of pop up authorization they receive. By tweaking the settings they can reduce the number of those they see as well as completely disable UAC.  Although I do not recommend you completely disable UAC, you can fine tune it to be easier to get along with.

1. To get started, open up the Local Security Settings MMC to show the local security policies by running secpol.msc.

2. Navigate through Local Policies and Security Options.

3. Scroll through the list on the right of the various security settings until your reach the User Account Protection settings. Refer to the list below of the various settings, to change them, just right click and select Modify. Items in bold are the default values.

User Account Control: Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account ...

Default Security Policies, No Longer Activate An URL Received In An Incoming Email Directly
Recently some default security policies has been changed on my Vista, apparently as the result of upgrades to my system.

1: I can no longer activate an URL received in an incoming email directly but must copy the URL to the address bar in my Internet Explorer. This makes sense and I can live with that.

2: I discover that I can no longer open some of my word documents "created in an earlier version of Microsoft Office". The message refers to registry policy settings and the help system refers to a Microsoft knowledge base article 922850 that leads me nowhere useful.

Windows Defender Or Manage Windows Start Up Programs Window Comes Up Saying "contact Administrator" Administrator
We're on a network and all the pcs only have one user and therefore I am administrator of all. One pc now won't let me access stuff. When I try and go into Windows defender or Manage windows start up programs, a window comes up saying "contact Administrator". ?? Can't access folder options either. There's a virus on it (darn kids) which I'm trying to get rid of (despite having McAfee, Windows defender, Ad-Aware and Stinger). Could it be the virus causing this? which is hard of course to get rid of if I can't have any access to security files.

"Windows Is Unable To Find A System Volume That Meets Its Criteria For Installation"
I installed Vista a while back, on a system pretty much formatted this way:

partition 1: linux
partition 2: XP
partition 3: linux swap
partition 4: extended {
partition 5: linux home
partition 6: linux usr
partition 7: Vista

This worked fine. Perfectly, in fact, and I was really pleased with how smooth the Vista install went. I noticed that Vista installed its bootloader on partition 2. Since I was going to trash XP at some point, I figured I would cross this bridge when I got to it. I got to that bridge last night. It was time to install a different flavour of linux, and trash XP. But nothing's ever easy... I reinstalled linux so that things look more like:.........

Deleting X64: "Windows Is Unable To Find A System Volume That Meets Its Criteria For Installation"
I had Vista Ultimate x64 installed on my machines, and wanted to install the x86. But, when I tried to install the x86 after deleting the x64 version, I now get an error that says that "Windows is unable to find a system volume that meets its criteria for installation." I have reformatted the drive and all else that I can think of, but, it it continues to throw the error message. What should I do? I am sure that my system and hardware is sufficient to handle the Vista install, and I am trying to install to the same drive that I had the other installed to: Processor 2.00 gigahertz AMD 64 Opteron's (2 installed)

Prevent Caching Of Local Browsing
I have an annoying problem. I use my Vista PC for image editing and organization. I browse to these files quite often, and they are arranged in a very hierarchical directory structure with folders on top of folders to keep everything nice and neat.

Many times, I will need to perform an edit that I require assistance from the internet on. So I fireup my trusty browser, drop down what I expect to be the internet browsing history to visit a trusty resource that I recently visited, only to find that my @#%@^%ing local browsing history has almost completely populated this list. Check it out:.........

Prevent Users From Disabling UAC
I have a domain with several Vista boxen with users who are local Admins but not Domain Admins (accomplished using Restricted Groups). I need to ensure that these users do not disable User Account Control on their machines as I am sure they will be tempted to do so. Is there a way I can do this (perhaps through Group Policy)?

I found several UAC-related settings and enforced them, but nothing stops them from disabling it entirely. Is there anything I can do besides the obvious choice of not granting them Administrative privileges?
