How do i get to System administrator so i can turn it off so i can change things on my computer

Step 1:
A systems administrator title comes with interesting job functions, a good salary and a fair amount of respect. However, that title can cover a lot of ground and varies from company to company in its exact duties. Systems administrators manage, build and maintain some of a business' most critical computer systems.

Read a broad selection of computing resources. There are many types of systems administrators and also many types of systems. To understand which kinds of systems you want to work with and how they interact with others, you need to have a high-level understanding of them all. Make sure to cover Windows, Unix (Linux) and networking systems. Determine which kind of systems you would be most interested in working with. You may eventually work with many types of systems, but most sysadmins start out working on one specific type of system. Read books dedicated to training administrators. These books are different than other computer system books in that they will focus on the kinds of tasks that computer administrators are required to do. These books can also prepare you to pass certification exams. Build up experience. Because systems administrators have unlimited access to some of the most critical computer systems, it is rare for someone with no experience to be hired as a systems administrator. However, it may be possible at small businesses where the systems administrator is usually also the help desk person, and the desktop support person, and so on. Doing everything helps build experience quickly. Get certified. Certification is not required, but it may help open doors or get you more interviews, especially if you have less experience. Certification is a way to prove that you understand the complexities of systems administration (see Below). Apply for systems administrator positions online. As high-tech positions, most admins are hired via either job websites or other online communities such as LinkedIn.

For some programs my computer dose allow me to access because I AM NOT an adminstrator

You must log onto an account that is an administrator and give your user account administrator power through user accounts in the control panel. I'm assuming your using a windows based machine

My computer doesnt allow the program

What is your computer's operating system? Is it a Mac or a Windows based computer?

Have you tried running the program as an administrator? (Only works on Windows Vista or 7)
To do that simple right-click the program's icon and select the "Run as Administrator" option in the drop down menu. A pop-up will appear prompting you to agree to the program.

*Note: Your PC's account must have adminstrative rights.

When i have a link in my email i recieve a pop up that says (there are restriction effective on computer please contact you system administator) what does this mean and how can i get my email links working...

Dear liz,

who ever set up the computer made you a power user instead of and an administrator. this is a good ploy for people who are not computer sa-vy, also for people who wander to bad web sites were they may contract a virus.

If you are not the owner of the computer see the administrator, if you own the computer log into the computer as an adminstrator and change the settings. You should know the password for the adminstrator...since you own the computer...

this is the reasoning hunt dowh the culprit

I Need helpseeting an adminstrator account up on a used computer

Open control panel and create a new user account with administrator privileges. Log off the previous user and logon to the one you just created. Then delete the original user and this should set everything as default for you the new user.

If the password prompt is in a browser ie, Internet explorer or Firefox you will need to remove the addon (sounds like parental controls).

The only way of changing the registered owner would be to complete a fresh install of windows.

Adminstrative Rights

Try booting into safe mode and log in as Administrator. From there you can go to Control Panel and edit any user account you have on computer.
