Ok The Problem is you need to change that programs permissions so that guest have full access only to that program not the whole computer so the computer when log into the other account doesn't block some of the program functions to do this right click on the program you want then say properties then security then you should see something that say admin user etc... click on user then say edit make sure your log in as admin when doing this the check the box that say full control and now click apply close the other box and your done now the program should function right
hope this help doing the following dose not give standards accounts admin privileges it only gives full control to specific programs so that they work properly with out admin rights

Account is lock can't log in


Well, that means just what you read: you are trying to log in to an account but the account is locked so you can't log in. Might be because you are not supposed to log in that account or maybe you used to log in before and can't now, that they changed politics... or maybe you are no welcome to log in and you are banned.
If you are very interested to log in, look for the email of webmaster or administrator of that account and ask him what's the issue.

C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\msnmsgr.exe The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.


Below are the easiest solution you could try.
1. Uninstall and re-install windows live
or
2. Update your computer with latest microsoft.net framework and windows updates
or
3. The cumbersome way below

  • clickStart
  • click All Programs, then Accessories
  • right click on the Command Promptoption,
  • on the drop down menu which appears, click on the Run as Administratoroption.
  • If you haven't disabled User Account Control (and you shouldn't!) you will be asked for authorization. Click the Continue button if you are the administrator or insert the administrator password.
  • In the Command Prompt window, type:sfc /scannow,
  • press Enter. You'll see "the system scan will begin".
  • This procedure do take some time and windows will repair/replace any corrupt/missing files. You will be asked to insert your Vista DVD when needed.

No txt showing on my chat log, no access to archives and no access to web cam and no txt showing in my offline messages


The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng...

2) In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32 jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.

3) If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleaner reginout to easily fix it

How come my gf cant log on to skype with an administrator account but can log on using a guest account when signing into windows.


Signing in to skype requires changing some data on your computer (minor skype files on preferences, remembering your log-in, etc.) Depending on the version of windows, you will not be able to sign in

I can log in to yahoo messenger but just i get ready to send a message to my friend yahoo closes, i have tried to uninstall and reinstall and its still doing the same thing


Your profile might be having problems. Create a new user from control panel - user accounts. Give it administrative rights. Then log in as that user or profile however you call it.Log into yahoo messenger. It should work.

But do note that once you log in as the new user or use that profile you will not have the same desktop or browser settings etc.

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.
