User With Non-admin Rights Can't Initialize Drive?
Jul 2, 2010
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 Windows 7 quits and shoots failed error.
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?

My step son downloaded a bunch of virus' which hosed my computer. I just finished realoading windows and all my software and now I'm going through and removing things from his start menu so he only has access to limited programs, he's 9 and he doesn't know to go into the c:/program files to get anything. I was in his standard user account moving stuff so it would only show up on my login. So when it came up and asked for an administrator password I typed in my password and did what I had to do. The only problem is now he still has access to those things that I authorized. I can now go into his account and access my documents. I would think you would have to put in the administrator password every time but obviously that's not the case. How do I reset that so he no longer has access to that stuff?
I was kind of thrown into the issue of allowing a user to have admin rights on their own system, eg., download various programs like Firefox, Adobe stuff, and before I go in to muddle things up, I must ask how to do this.....
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.
I am trying to change the folder properties of a applications folder from read only. I am doing this per instructions from the apps provider to prevent crashes.
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.
i have win 7 home premium 64bit i try to use my pc in an account without admin rights wherever possible, but, having a complicated password for my admin account, i'm wondering how is it possible to automate the running of applications that require administrator rights? pure laziness i guess, but in the near future it will allow my kids to run certain apps without needing an admin account
At my job we just went from a windows xp machine to a windows 7 professional. when Some one with out admin rights does anything it asks for someone with admin rights to type in their info (their username and password). For instance, I had one user trying to download an email attachment and it asked for admin permissions. We have other windows 7 pcs in the building and they don't do this. The xp machine before we installed the windows 7 pc didn't do it either. So anyone know how to make it not ask for admin right when doing tasks that shouldn't need admin rights? Yes we are on a network, but their group policy allows them to at least download an attachment or even change their wallpaper.
how "wrong" or "dangerous" this is, just hear me out. I work for one of the largest global companies in the world. We ship brown packages *hint*.
I just recieved my replacement PC for the one that took a dump on me last week. It's great, this one actually has Windows 7 on it and it came with a new keyboard. All the computers in the office are super super old. Anyways, this computer doesnt have AMD ATI Catalyst Drivers installed so I downloaded them but cant install them without admin privilages.
Since my company is so large, I have to call a helpdesk, talk to an idiot whose sole job is to reset peoples passwords, let him create a ticket, send it to desktop support, wait 3-10 days for desktop support to call me, and then MAYBE get it installed by them if theyre being nice. Its such a hassle and I cant keep working on a screen that is 800x600.
gpd is preventing me from doing most anything with my PC.Accidentally, II activated something as administrator and now I am limited as to what I can do I get windows saying blocked by group policy editor from performing this action. see administrator. I had admin privileges until reboot and now password has been changed,not by me.I am the only one with access to pc.
When I start Windows, programs that need administrator rights don't start as they did before. Before I describe the problem I'm having I would like to state that I searched and found similar problems all over the web, but not any solutions that worked for me. Now let's get on with the problem.The situation is as follows: programs that need admin rights and which I set to run at log on (like PeerBlock and TopWinPrio) don't start automatically anymore. I don't get a UAC message, I get nothing, they just don't launch.A few days ago everything worked fine. Since then I've run CCleaner and Gamebooster 3.5b. I did clean the registry with CCleaner but used the backup of the registry CCleaner made after I noticed this behavior (so I think the registry clean with CCleaner could not be the issue). I've also used the 'normal clean' function of CCleaner, maybe this caused the problems?
I think the problems have something to do with messed up admin rights on my account. The programs startup fine when I disable UAC, but I'd rather not do thatAlso, when I log onto the administrator account, the programs startup fine. I can start the programs manually after I'm logged in, but I'd rather have them startup automatically.I've tried the following to solve it:- sfc / scannow command - did not solve it- check if my account has admin rights - as far as I can see this is the case- look for restore points - this is stupid, I know, but it seems I have deleted them with either Tuneup or CCleaner
I am using a windows application which has a feature to change the IP address to 10.XX.XX.1 to connect to a server and restore it back to its original address on exit of connection to the server. The windows application is run with administrator rights. Now i want to run the application without admin rights and change estore the IP address. My application for changing the IP it uses netsh commands from command prompt.
I'm a newer admin to a company. Before I got here, all of the employee PC's had the users set as adimins on their assigned PC's. Now My bosses want admin rights removed from everyone, except for about 4 employees. Is there any way I can do this silently?
I work for a company that needs to send client data to an FTP server on a daily basis, with no intervention by the user. Before Windows 7, it was an easy task as we just supplied some FTP software, script and some timer software that installed itself as a new service. It worked really well.But now I'm in the situation where our clients are getting new PCs with Windows 7 loaded, and due to lack of admin rights/elevation, we're no longer able to install software. Worse still, I can't install the timer software as a service for the same reason, and Task Scheduler also needs Admin rights.I have half a solution which means supplying comms software that can literally be copied into a folder, and my testing has gone well, but I'm stuck with the timer software. Does anyone know of a standalone timer app that I could simply unzip and copy to a folder along with my comms software?
I'm trying to solve a problem with the Aspell spell-checker for Notepad++ by using the steps described at this link..SourceForge.net: Notepad++: Aspell files - en.pws , en.preplHowever, when I right-click inside that folder to create a new text file, the only option in the "New" context menu is Folder; with a blue-and-gold admin symbol next to it. Our sys admin gave me administrative rights on this PC. I can install applications, see system files, etc.
I am allowed to make myself an admininstrator while on the network or off the network but the next time (which is the second, the first time is to make the changes), my administrator rights disappear. I have added myself as an admininstrator in every way listed I think on all threads with no luck.
I noticed my laptop being slow and so I checked the active processes. Found an unknown process dllhost.exe using a massive portion of CPU. A friend of mine managed to locate file and alter it so that it was restricted to only the admin of the machine (me), along with another file below it (dllhst3g) � was worried that this was some sort of infection that went unnoticed by my antivirus software which at the time was Stop Sign. Since locking files computer worked faster but have been unable to scan computer for infections as Stop Sign couldn�t be update for unknown reason. Since then have been infected with virus which stopped me getting to cmd tool, task manager and changed desktop background. Started laptop in Safe Mode with networking, got a copy of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware which managed to find the problem and delete it. Then was advised to use Avast anti-virus and had no problems since. My main problem is that the 2 files are still locked off and I am wondering how important those processes are? Also, my primary concern is the sudden inability to perform administrator tasks. I am the only user on my laptop and am an administrator according to profile on Control Panel, but when trying to perform Microsoft Windows Update receive pop-up message saying: You need to provide administrator permission To complete this task, you need to log in as an administrator or ask an administrator to complete the task for you. One of the updates to be downloaded is Windows 7 Service Pack. gain admin privileges again and let me know how important the dllhost and dllhst3g files are and/or how to unlock them?

I recently did a reinstall and I remember there was a way to make my default account have complete control of windows, with full access/rights/permissions/privileges. I did search for it but couldn't find it
So a new box recently built, when booted, defaults to the local administrator account.This is a Windows 7 machine for a Linux guru that doesn't want to be bothered pressing more buttons than is necessary, if you get my drift. So my question is, after pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del...how do I dictate to Windows that the preferred used is "HisDomainAccount" on our company domain, as opposed to the local admin account?
I changed a user from admin to standard after creating a new admin account. When I boot into the standard user, I am prompted by UAC for the admin password for 4 programs to start. All the programs are ASUS utilities that came with mymotherboard.I have checked the permissions of the programs and the User group has full control.Also, these programs do not show up in the MSCONFIG startup tab. I want the utilities to run but do not want to have to authenticate every time I boot
I use windows 7 home premium, having real player download difficulty. The actual message: As a Restricted User you do not have adequate Windows operating system rights to use this program to install software.
I have a software which reguires the user profile to have rights to change system time. Software is run as a non-admin user profile so software's installer should give the proper rights. Installer is run as admin. Can this be done and if it can, how it is done?
I have this problem on a couple machines. I have created a user and put them in the local administrators group. They still get error messages when trying to install printers/browsers/programs and whe they try to run programs like IIS or device manager. The error says you need administrator rights to install or run the program. I have also disabled UAC to test that out. No luck.
My power supply on my old comp died, so it was time to upgrade computers, I went from running windows XP to windows 7 now. I saved my old "previously upgraded" 320g wd internal drive to recover the data to my new machine. I got an external drive enclosure, installed everything but windows is telling me I don't have "access" to the drive. When I go into disk management, it sees the drive but it's not initialized, nor will it let me initialize it when I try.
i am having 2 drivers in my system window 7 o.s. but after installing of another o.s i.e linux mint 12 i lost my main data driver partition. but dat lost driver is present in disk management, but it not able to perform any operation over that , it is having 2 enable operation i.e delete volume and help and i dont't have to delete that volume.
