Cannot sign in, a error ym requires admistrator


I just spent the last 6 hours fighting the same problem. Trying to re-load an old version of YM the installation would fail at the last minute and tell me to run it from an administrators account - even though I'm set up as an administrator on my work PC.

Finally fixed the problem by uninstalling (run Unwise.exe in the messenger directory to remove YM). Then restarted the computer in Safe mode and installed from there with no errors.

Hope this helps.

You should log on as Administrator. To do this, Go to Control Panel, Accounts. Choose Administrator. Putting Administrator Password is optional. After Choosing administrator, restart your computer. Start downloading after restarting your computer.

Cant dwonload yahoo messanger


Hi,
Are you using your personal PC/laptop or you are trying to download and install through your company's network? Some companies won't allow you to have administrative rights in the PC/laptop they assigned to you.. You can contact your helpdesk for that matter.
However, if it is your PC/laptop, be sure that the account you are using have administrative privileges or "administrator" account. You can check that on the Control Panel and go to user accounts.
