Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Administrator rights are not getting executed - Windows Vista

I am having problem with my Windows Vista Home premium edition.
I am logging with Administrator account but still is not giving me excess to all the right which administrator has. If I am opening my c drive it is giving error "access is denied". Also if am doing any changes to user accounts it is giving error "cannot open access control editor" and "access is denied".
When going to properties of c drive it is showing unknows owner in ownership tab and dening access to administrator to do change ownership to the default user.

Initially I was using my default user with admin right, but when i started getting problems, I have activated Administrator user. And now very much surprise that how my administrator account is behaving like a normal user account.

Can any one help me the same?

    Thanks buddy. Let me try and come back with the result.

    I had tried this option but it is not working. System is not allowing me do system restore. It is also not allowing to access "c" drive. If there any way I can change the registry values to overcome this problem.



    Please help .........

    I am not been able to take backup of my data, hence I need the access to my 'C' Drive. If it is possible, I can take the backup and then I can reinstall the Vista.

How to delete chatphone


Make sure you are logged in on the Administrator account. Click on Start, the control panel and add/remove programs. Scroll down to the chatphone entry and click Remove option. You may have to right click and choose the 'alter as administrator' option from the menu. This is also do-able by right-clicking on Chatphone in the Programs menu.

My daughter received a computer after her aunt passed. It's loaded with Windows Vista Home Premium. No discs were with the tower, and her aunt's windows log-on comes up... No clue what the password is....


try to boot up in safe mode, keep pressing f8 till a menu appears and use the arrow keys to select safe mode. Then press enter. Once the windows login screen appears choose Administrator to log in. Then click the start menu button (the microsoft flag button) in the bottom left of the screen and click control panel, choose user accounts, then choose add or remove user accounts. Click yes to allow , then click on your daughters aunts account and click remove password. Now restart the pc and you will not have to enter a password.

If you dont have the administrator account to log into you will have to reply with the exact make and model of computer as you may have a recovery partition to restore the pc back to how it was when it was first purchased

I can't download iTunes. I'm using windows vista.


Right click the iTunes install program and click "Run as an Administrator". This will give you full access. Letme know if this works!

EDIT:
What version of Vista are you running??? (eg Home Premium x86 or 64bit, etc.) and also, is your account a Limited or Administrator???

EDIT 2:
Also, have you installed Quicktime or iTunes ever before on your computer with Vista??? If you did, you have to login to the account that installed it before.

EDIT 3:
Vista is really weird with quicktime and iTunes., so basically your problem is that you have to be on the user name that installed quicktime, using the "Run as Administrator" option. Ive seen this before with Vista and it has to do with ownership permissions.

Can not log in on computer with password it says Domain home not available


You need to logon to the local machine with the administrator account and Try leaving the Domain, (Join Workgroup instead) reboot, and then rejoin the Domain.
This can be done by right clicking 'My Computer' - Properties - Advanced system settings - computer name - change and do the necessary changes there.

Cannot Delete Descktop Folder


Log off and log back on and see if it remains.
Are you running as administrator when you attempt to delete the folder? See this article and/or this article.
It's frustrating, but UAC is there for your protection and security...it can function to prevent a downloaded executable from gaining full administrative rights over your system...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

Cannot load "arthur" with widows vista home premium stops installing


Hello... Please go thru this. Souce:http://www.ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=573497
I may have a work around
It is a way to give admin privs to the msi file
First, create a file called Arthur.bat
- Open a folder, say C:\temp
- Right-click and select new, Text Document
- name it Arthur.bat
Next, edit the file
- right click the file and select edit
- put this in the editor ... msiexec /a d:\Arthur.msi
- save and exit
Then, right-click the file and select "Run as administrator"

Worked for me.

There is another msi file (ISScript11.msi) on the CD which I didn't run which may be needed ? But, I managed to play through the tutorial/start so ... we w ill see.

So, it is a permissions thing. Hopefully this will get passed on to the developers and they can resolve it tout-de-suite

I can't get graphics to "save as" from CorelDRAW 8 installed into VISTA Home Premium


Without more detail I can give you a useful tip -make sure that you are running as Administrator. With Vista you cannot always be sure of this so when you start the program right-click on the program icon and if it is the executable then the menu you see will have the 'Run as administrator' option. Vista works overtime on saving us from ourselves so program anomalies are generally a permissions issue.
