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...

Cant remember my user account password


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. XP only.
  • 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
  • Free software option would be Hirens Boot CD. This one is command prompt only. http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ Must follow instructions exactly.

What is the product key of microsoft word 2007


The 25-character product-key is used when installing the software.

If you purchased Microsoft Office 2007 at a retail store, then the product-key was included in the packaging.

If you made an online purchase, then check your E-mail (including your JunkMail folder) for a message containing the product-key.

If you recently purchased a new computer, it could have come with a pre-installed "trial" version of Microsoft Office. Now that the "trial" period has ended, you either must stop using the software, or purchase a license-key to activate the software.

Loss computer password


Hi.
I will try to help you.
If you mean a Windows Password, for me is imposible to help.
if the password is in the setup, you just have to remove the battery mounted in the mainboard and install it again after few seconds.( with the computer turned off)
Turn your computer on and there is no more password.

I hope this could help.

About registry


You can not. Unless you create a Guest or a non-administrator account, Users from that account wont have access to regedit.
But you can disable it on an Administrator account and others.

Lets say you want to disable regedit on the Administrator's account, login to Administrators account and do as follows:

Start/Run/Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Value Name: DisableRegistryTools
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = allow regedit, 1 = disable regedit)


Do the same for Guest/Any other accounts.
