Try restarting your computer again and make sure your user id an password is set as administrator by the control panel. If you are hooked to a Windows server and the network security is handled through that domain controller of the server. then unplug the notebook from the network and see if that works.

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 cant log in into my administrator account and i cant change,install or down load any thing without needin the password


Did you change it or supply a password? If not, try a blank password (just hit enter when prompted for the password). Also, you can try logging on as administrator or a person with administrative rights. Again, try a blank password when prompted if you haven't changed it.

No rights to run control panel requires new instal need media


1. to gain rights do the following.

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:
Method 1: Using TweakUI Power Toy for Windows XP Download TweakUI from here: v2.00 for Windows XP | v2.10 for XP SP1 and above
Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:

INSTALLATION PROBLEM


I think you're doing it right, but are not logged in as an administrator, so you get errors like this. If you log in as an administrator and check the logs, you might see a reason listed for denying the installer program.

I recommend Linux, but you can just use an administrator account for installing major things like antivirus, drivers, Nero, etc. on WinXP and possibly be happy. It sounds like you know some good practices, not running as administrator all the time.

Cannot load hp photosmart r827 and r690series software cd. keeps asking for primary user to install


Hello angus08,

Have you logged on as Administrator, or does your profile have admin rights? If not, you may not be able to install the software. The solution is to log on as administrator and do the install. If you are not the administrator, then get the person who has admin rights on the PC to log in. Then you will be able to install the software.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied.
