Due to security reasions, the some installwares are blocked by OS.
So, to run that setup your windows log-in must have administrator previleges.

  • Try to boot your system with another user name and password on your system.
  • Then try to install the software/download.

Please post your feed back whats going on.

Thanks

Your account doesnt have administrative rights.
you need to login with a user which has these.

    you should also be able to run the program, by first downloading it and then rightclicking on it -> run as administrator


  • Ekse Apr 27, 2008




    as you can see in this image, simply right click over the program and select run as administrator.

Hi my computer has a bad virus that i cant get rid of. ive tried a lot of programs but my computer is still the same.


ave you done a full virus scan with up-to-date anti-virus software?

If you don't have any anti-virus software and you use the Internet, you REALLY need to get some! My preferred anti-virus package is Norton Anti-Virus but, if you want a free copy in a hurry, download AVG Anti-Virus from www.grisoft.com - that's also excellent smile.gif

Got an error message 1935 while downloading software for a printer. tried sfc /scannow per kodak help tech, message said must sign on as administrator in console session to do this. how?


I think your system has many user accounts to log in. In your case I think you are logged in as other user in spite of administrator so the person who logs in as administrator has kept some securities so when you are trying to download anything it will ask administrator's permission,To avoid this type of errors always log in as administrator, or just remove securities from the administrator's account.

Thanks.
have a great day.

I need to add a registration code but i have to log in as an administrator to put the code in how do i do this with windows 7 without screwing up my computor


hi
by adding ur registration code you mean you are instaling a program and want to put its serial number?

if so, you need to know your local administrator password

-when you log in is there any other user accounts than the on you use try to log on by on of them

- try to run the program that you are installing in administrator mode.
-right click on the installing program that you run.
-choose run as administrator.


all the best

I forgot my password to my dell xps m1530 laptop and cant log into my computer how can i bypass this and change it


METHOD 1:
One of the easiest solutions is to enter through another Administrator account, there is a bunch of hidden accounts with administrative privileges that come pre created in Windows for troubleshooting, the most common ones are named “Administrator, Owner, XP“. Any administrator account can reset the password of any other account.
If you’re NOT using the Windows XP log-in screen (the one with the icons for each user), you can try logging in with the account named ‘Administrator’, which is hidden on the XP log-in screen. If you are using the XP log-in screen, try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del to reach the old, NT-style screen, which should allow you to type in the user name.


METHOD 2:
If no other account with administrative privileges exist (which is really rare), you will need to use a password cracker to crack it. Ophcrack would be my first choice as it is freeware and performs the job fast.You will have to use another computer to download the iso file from ophcrack.sourceforge.net, burn it onto a CD using any burning application (I suggest DeepBurner as it’s freeware).Boot from this CD and watch Ophcrack go to work. Based on extensive password tables, it can recover most passwords in a matter of minutes, for all the accounts on a PC.

I am trying to download a game it said i must be loged in as an administrator when installing this program so what do i do and how do i do it my email is zoye125227@hotmail.com thank you


You must have administrator rights to be able to install any program or game on your computer. It may mean that the user account that you are using is either a guest acocunt or an account with limited access.

Try these steps to change your log in

1) go to the control panel
2) Select User Accounts/User Account
3) Log in as the administrator and enter the password to switch accounts

Or you can log off from your current user and relog in using the admin account. If you do not know the password, it is better to inform the admin that you have to install a game so he/she will do it for you.

Hope that helps!
