When I try to start Starship Troopers my computer says I must login with administrator privileges, but I am already logged in as administrator? Windows 10

I get the error window when I try right click on start as administrator from Shortcut menu. Window says, "Please login with administrator privileges and try again." I have tried everything I know from restart to changing user accounts. I only have 1, mine as administrator. How do I get game to recognize me as administrator?

SOURCE: ADmin rights on Vista Home Basic

For vista
Open the control panel and select System and Maintenance.

Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Administrative Tools.

In the new window open Computer Management.

From there open System Tools.

Now open Local Users and Groups.

And finally open Users.

Right click on the account named Administrator and select Properties.

There is a series of tick boxes in the lower half of the properties window deselect the one saying Account Is Disabled.

Apply the changes and Log Off, there should now be 2 accounts in your log in screen, select administrator.

when you go to delete your old account it'll ask you if you want to save the documents and settings from it. say yes and copy the files from the folder into your new admin account.

SOURCE: My HP Mini Laptop won't reboot. :\ Please Help!!!!!!!

well you restored a part of windows, not all. So you dont have a full bakup. You need to reinstall windows, with a original Windows CD.

In my opinion for backup I use a HD image with Norton Ghost, I have the PC working again in 5 min

SOURCE: ow to install Windows 7 again over administrator rights blocking everything?

Try booting up your laptop with the Windows 7 installation CD to install Windows 7 again.
If you cannot get the laptop to boot up with the Windows Cd then go into the BIOS setting and make the CD drive the first boot device and the hard drive the 2nd boot device.

How do i start the game (race driver 3) but it states [please login with administrator privileges and try again] but i don't know what to do "?"

Do you have admin rights on the computer you're using? If you do, it shouldn't be a problem.
If you don't and you have Windows, right click on the icon for the game, and you'll see the option to run as admin.
If this still doesn't work, you'll have to talk to whoever has admin right to the computer and ask them to open it for you, or give you rights on that game so you can play. You're not logging into the game, your being asked if you have enough rights on that computer to do it.

Why do I get a black screen and no video

Check your video drivers to make sure they are all up to date. If that doesnt fix it, try updating your game. If that doesnt fix it check the system requirements to see if you rig can actually run it on current operating system and your video card.

Cannot login to user account on windows computer

Computer administrators have access to make certain changes on a computer that other users may not have.

Administrators have full freedom to install and uninstall programs, move files around and make changes to the Windows registry.

There are actually three ways that one may become the administrator on their computer; during the initial setup, change the settings in the Control Panel or by having the current administrator change the permissions on the account.

Set up an account during the initial setup of Windows on the computer.

During the setup wizard, you will be asked to set up an administrator account.
Choose the account name, user icon and password to set up the administrator account.

Step 1.
Change your account permissions if there isn't an administrator account currently setup.
During some installations Windows users were allowed to install the program without setting up an administrator account.

Click on "Start" then "Control Panel" to open the Control Panel.

Click on "Users and Accounts" or "Users Accounts and Family Safety".
Click on "User Accounts."

Click on "Add or remove user accounts" then "create a new account".

Assign the new account administrative privileges, a user name and password.
Click "OK" and close all windows. Log in under the new Administrator account.

Have the current administrator change your account privileges from "User" to "Administrator". She can do this by following the same steps described in Step 1.

Instead of creating a new account, she must click on your current account and then apply the new permissions.

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)

I have already purchased Adobie Photoshop on the internet by credit card. All I want to use is use it and need a way to login in. I shouldn't have to pay anymore for this.

while installing this you would have given administrator privilege with username and password. Use the login with administrator privilege... or els it will ask for licence.
Thanks for rating
Good luck

This may seem long way round but download " Hirens Boot CD " burn to disk and boot from it it has a lot of useful programs on it including removing password setup so you can start afresh when windows reboots with no password
Or try booting in safe mode and format from there if possible

While tring to install a printer, a sign poped up saying we needed an administrator.

Log off the computer or restart the computer and login with administrator account and password to install it successfully.

If you don't have an administarator account then reboot the system in safe mode and login with administrator account and make a account which has admin rights.

An administrator account user can only install the printer drivers or software.

I am trying to install a photosmart all in one C5180 on my pc running Vista. It keeps saying that the program cannot be installed as use by and asking me to log on as the Administrator. I AM the...

This is normal with Vista, Vista log in users as standard (not Administrator privileges) , then ask if to run programs as administrator for security reasons. Once you tell the system to run program as administrator it should install with no problems.
If you really cannot install the program, you can restart computer and login as administrator:
At the "pick a user to login" screen, hit CTRL-ALT-DEL to get the classic login screen. Then you can type in Administrator for the user name, default password is blank.
