Limited User access will not open files in software program

Software was installed for user with admin rights on Windows XP Home Edition. As soon as admin rights are changed to limited user rights the user cannot open the software. Access denied. I need the user without admin rights to be able to access the installed software. Any ideas?

Boot into safe mode on xp. when you start the computer and the bios screen comes up start tapping the F8 key. it should take you to the boot selection screen. press your arrow keys to get to the selection "Windows Safe Mode" and press enter. when xp loads the login screen, there should be an admin account now. use that account to set users access to admin rights.
if you dont want that user to have admin rights but still start software that requires admin rights, try this. right-click on the program. go to run as... and choose administrator.

please let me know if this helped you :)

How to hack admin password from guest in xp?


Nope. Must be an admin.
Lost Windows password:




  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

There is a free boot CD called Hirens.

Software installation using vista basic


Very strange.

Do you get any error messages?
Are you able to download the programmes?

Vista works differently to previous versions of Windows, because of much improved protection. In essence you can no longer install programmes anywhere you want and you can no longer install programmes unless you have permission to do so.

There is a service called UAC which stands for User Access Control, which prevents normal users from installing software - only administrators are allowed to install software.

Even if you are the only user, you are not regarded as the administrator unless you say I am the admin.

When you click on something to download, at the top of the page a small wide yellow box will appear, right click on it and download the file.

Then when you run the installer another box will open asking if it can make the changes you want - you may need to give your password to continue.

Then install everything as their defaults. and all should be well.

Some older programmes do have problems - download them and SAVE then to your documents, then right click on the installer - you have a number of new options...

Run as Administrator (which may solve your problems)

Trouble shoot compatibility - which can resolve some older programme problems - you can set the system up to emulate Windows XP etc... which will solve most problems.

And if the installation fails it will ask if you want to re-install using default settings - say yes.

Finally, make sure you are downloading Vista compatible software and that it is the right software for your Operating system. You can not install 64bit (x64) software on a 32 bit (x86) machine.

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.

Cant log on as administrator


Can you log in as:

Administrator
NO PASSWORD

This is the default admin login.

Once you are here you can right click MY COMPUTER and click MANAGE from the context menu.

In the LOCAL USERS AND GROUPS menu... you can open the USERS folder and start re-set your user accounts.

Failing this, get HIRENS... it has a MS password re-setter and you can re-set the admin password and log in.

Cant login to computer because I forgot the admin password. i can sign in as guest with limited access.please help me


Boot your computer into Safe Mode. It sometimes varies, but the typical way on most WinXP

based machines is to strike the F8 key during P.O.S.T. Once the drivers load you need to

access the Command Prompt. START / ALL PROGRAMS / ACCESSORIES / COMMAND

PROMPT. A new window will appear.

At command prompt, type "control userpasswords2" and press Enter to open the Windows 2000-style User Accounts application.

On the Users tab, clear the Users Must Enter A User Name And Password To Use This Computer check box and then click OK.

In the Automatically Log On dialog box that appears, type the user name and password for the account you want to be
logged on each time you start your computer.

This is also an opportunity to set a new Administrator password.

Problem with the drive


Hi pravin,
One must pay close attention to the display screen when performing a new instillation of windows. Windows will show you the drive partitions. In your case windows will show there are two partitions. One C:\ & a second partition F:\. Perform a 3rd installation of windows. When you get to the screen where you can see both partitions (C: & F:) have windows delete the F: partition. Than have windows format the C: partition. Once C: has been formatted have windows install its self onto C:\
Install your driver software for your board. Than update windows through windows update service.
If you wish to back up your personal data to a CD/DVD writer, suggest you do this before formatting the system. Suggested folders to back-up.
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Desktop
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Favorites
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\Local Settings\Identities
C:\Documents and Settings\ User name\My Documents
Data from any program you may have installed.

Once windows has been updated & you install anti-virus software you can copy & past each folder over the new folder in windows.
