Question about Yahoo Messenger
Whenever i reinstall ym. showing a erro YM requires admiistrator rights for installation please have admistratior or equivalent install yahoo messenger on system..
n when m clicked on OK a another error showing
you do not have access to make the required system configuration modifications.please rerun this installation from an administrators account
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 do not have administrative rights to the PC that you are trying to install the software on. You can do 1 of the following 3 things:
#1: log in as an administrator and install the software.
#2: Add your current user account to the local administrators group, thus allowing you to install software
#3: you can shift+right click on the file used to install, choose "run as", and use administrative credentials to perform the install under the current user account.
If you need further assistance performing any of these steps, I can go into further detail
Hope this helps!
