I dont know how to log in as an administrator for itunes i need to to download music or buy please help


If this is an xp machine. roboot till it asks you for a logon. hit ctrl-alt-del twice in a row and you should get an administrator login.

If windows is newer like vista or 7 then I think you can right click on IE and tell it to run it as an administrator.

Vista and newer machines made it a lot harder to do things as an administrator. Im not a fan of vista at all.

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.

You need to log in as Administrator. Are you the only person who uses this PC, and if so, was Vista pre-loaded when you purchased it? It was not set up properly; your account should have Administrator rights. They should also have given you an Administrator account password. Contact your vendor ASAP and tell them you need this done.

Let me know how it turned out!

Hi jmc66884,

Are you getting the user account control prompt? if your printer came in with the setup CD that is compatible with Vista just right click the setup.exe that you can browse inside the CD and choose run as administrator, I believe by trying that process your installation should progress.

hope this solve your printer installation problem.
