    k its not that i have administrator problems because i've run some of the programs before they just wont run now and when i try to open them (even when i try to run as an administrator) the window that pops up freezes (but i can still move the mouse and go to other windows) and if i try to download things to help diagnose the problem, they wont run. and this usually happens when i try to run programs with the little shield in front of the progam name but it has happened with just regular programs like microsoft office and internet explorer

Little shield icon in front mean you need to have administration rights to do that operation Windows vista do have protection when you try to make any system change, when you right click on the icon you will see "Run as administrator " try like that and let us know the outcome.

It might help if you can provide a little more information on your issue:
What version of Windows are you running? Does this occur at startup? Can you login with any other user besides Administrator?

I am not able to install the sprintsmartview to my dell studio 17 computer i keep getting an error 1721.


Since this error seems to reference the "Windows Installer" which is separate from the Installshield engine, I would probably try updating that:
The error by Windows Installer Package happens in Windows Vista because the of custom actions set in the installer package fail with missing permissions, involving custom actions that scheduled for both immediate or deferred execution. Visual Studio custom actions run while impersonating the installing user but only run with standard user privilege, and not with elevated administrator privilege as required in Windows Vista, if the msidbCustomActionTypeNoImpersonate bit is not set. Even though Windows Vista prompts for privilege elevation, however, only custom actions that are running in the Local System account get elevated correctly, while custom actions that impersonate as the current user do not.
Thus, the error usually happens on older versions of setup installer which install or uninstall programs meant for earlier versions of Windows operating system, such as XP, 2000, Me and 9x. However, if you're the programmer or developer for the installer program, probably you can do much to change the bit or installer sequence to solve the issue. But, there are still resolutions to fix the error 1721 that happens in Windows Vista, and probably has more than one one solutions or workarounds that users can try to get the software program installed.
Run an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator option to start the installation
This method will probably allow most failed .msi installer to install/uninstall probably. Simply open an elevated command prompt with Run as Administrator setting, and then execute the .msi executable.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Can't edit registry on Vista 64 bit


Hi there. With Vista, even though you may have an administrator account, some actions require you to go through an "extra channel", so to speak. This is to add extra security to your system from outside interference.

What you should try:

Click on your Start Menu.
At the bottom, under All Programs, type regedit. Do NOT hit enter.
At the top, it should display the regedit program.
Right-click the regedit program and then select Run as Administrator.
It should now let you edit.

Let me know how it goes

Installed act of war direct action and is tells me


*install patch V1.06
*close all other programs running on the backround
*run the game with with administrator account or with administrator rights
*run the game exe with Windows XP compatibility mode (if you are running Vista/Win7)
*There are a lot of reports that this game will not like more than 3GB of RAM, so limit RAM size to 2GB by editing Win XP (boot.ini) or Vista/Win7 (bcdedit) or by removing some memory sticks

Computer running very slow


internet properties delete all temporary files, delete cookies, delete history, set history to a low number. on start menu go to accessories run disk clean up, run disk defragment this will take awhile this action will take duplicate files and put them in one location. you will not lose anything. you also can go to my documents and clear out old items that you dont use this will speed you up some, also in your control panal file add/remove programs you may want to look for files that were downloaded from the internet that you decided you didnt want or that you dont need or use, and delete these,this action wiil free up used disk space that will also speed up your pc just keep in mind do not delete anything that runs another program that you do use because this will cause that program not to function right, any of this information will help speed your internet and your pc all together.
