Can't install used software.

When I try and install used software, I often get a message : " must have administrator's privileges" or similar, and it won't let me install. Is there a way to set the computer to allow me administrator's privileges?

    I checked, and I already have Administrator's Privileges. I looked at "Group Membership, " and it showed me in"Other" and an Administrator (Windows 2000 O/s.)

    I am set up as administrator, and I still get a message that I need administrators privileges before I can install software.

What you need to do is first log into the system as an administrator and then go to the "Users" icon in the Control Panel.

Select your username and change the account type to administrators.

Please let me know if you need details steps to attaining this...

I'm trying to install a program and my computer keeps telling me I don't have administrator privileges?


That happens when you are running a user account that is not the administrator account. In many ways this is smart because trojans and viruses have the same trouble installing. In schools or office buildings where they want to control who installs what on the computers it makes less problems for an administrator to fix. In your case switch users and log into your administrator account in control panel see if you can give your usual user account administrator privileges, shut down administrator account and log into your usual account and see if it now has administrator privileges in the control panel/user accounts. If not then install software while logged in the administrator account but install for all users from now on. Or you can only use the administrator account and set it up the way you like it (like your regular user account)

Cisco vpn disconnection through sonicwall firewall


This may sounds obvious but have you forwarded the correct ports through sonicwall for your VPN?
If you have, do you have any QoS running, it could be worth checking that VPN has priority over VoIP etc.
Do you get disconnects all the time or is it only during busy periods? You may be overloading your server, perhaps it's time for more RAM.

Drive medic starts but hangs with please wait message when trying to recover inaccessible disk


It is due to administrative privilege issue. Make sure you have the administrator privilege when you run the software. Else, while trying to scan the inaccessibe files user access control will prevent the software from scanning those files which can cause the scan to get stuck.

Trying to install all in one printer onto new computer


You apparently do not have administrative access to the computer. If you are using XP, you will need to log out and log back in as a user that has administrative privileges on the computer. Under VIsta, you need to respond to the UAC prompt in order to install software drivers.

This software cannot be installed using the 'run as ...' command


there's always an administrator (even if it's the one and only user).

what version of windows? (I'm assuming windows).

if Vista you can try to run the installer as administrator (find the install program, right-click, choose run as administrator).
