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.

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.
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
Your current operating system is most likely a version of windows. Depending on your model and type of computer, you may have any of the following versions of windows:
Windows XP Home Edition
Windows XP Professional Edition
Windows Vista Home Basic Edition
Windows Vista Home Premium Edition
Windows Vista Business Edition
Windows Vista Enterprise Edition
Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Windows 7 Starter
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows Thin PC
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.
You can DIY a password Recovery CD. Download windows password Recovery from http://www.windowspasswordsrecovery.com/ there is an .ISO image file integrated in the windows password Recovery. Burn the .ISO file onto a blank CD with your favorite burners or use the freely burner included in windows password Recovery. With the newly created windows password Recovery CD, you can reset windows admin password with our erasing anything else
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.
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...

you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.
