While you may be logged-in to an account which has "administrative" privileges,
you are not logged-in to the 'administrator' account.

Right-mouse click on the object that you would normally double-click to launch, to try to install the object, and then choose 'Run As Administrator'.

Hello
For the purpose you have to log on as administrator by following these steps
1) Click the Start orb and click on Run (or press the Windows key + R)
2) Type in regedit and press OK. If it asks you to open this via UAP, then
click Allow.
3) In the Registry Editor, navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
4) In the right hand pane, right click the mouse and select New then Key. A new folder should appear in the left hand pane. 5) Name this new key Special Accounts and press Enter.
6) Right click the mouse on the new SpecialAccounts key in the left hand pane, select New then Key again to make a "sub-key".
7) Name this new key UserList and then press Enter. In this new User List key, right click in the right hand pane and select New then DWORD (32-bit) and name this Administrator then press Enter.
8) Double click on the new DWORD you just made, and set the value to 1 then press OK.
9) Restart the computer to see the effects - from the Welcome screen you should be able to login as the administrator any time you wish.
Or this
right click on "computer" and click on manage. click on "local users and groups", click on "users", click on "administrator" and right click, click on properties. toggle the box marked "account is disabled". this should clear this box. now close all windows. in control panel click on "administrative tools", now click on "local security policy". with :interactive logon:" enable "Do not display last last user name", and disable "do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL". now logoff and you are set. when you are in the administrator box you should set a password of your choosing.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution
Good Luck

I forgot my Dell Dimension E310 administrator password and can't log in. What should I do? Should I call Dell to reset the password or switch the administrator to another user?


That would be the best solution. As long as you can login and the account has administrator rights.


Lost Windows password:


  • Login as Administrator. Try with no password (load safe mode if you don't see Administrator). Press F8 during boot to access Safe Mode.
  • Login as other user (if other user is available) and manage users. Must be an administrator.
  • Reformat computer.
  • Use 3rd party software to remove password. Like http://www.top-password.com/reset-windows-password.html

Some kids locked my computer with a password, can i remove it or bypassit


Can you login at all? If not, try administrator with no password. Boot in safe mode if you don't see administrator. Other than that there is 3rd party software or re-installing windows.

Hi,
According to your problem you can't install the driver of your printer. For your information to install any software or hardware you must need administrative privilege. If there require administrator password to login and you can't login also after giving password then first check the password you have typed is correct. Some time guest user can't do the all thing after get administrator password. Then you must need to login as administrator. You can try to start the setup by right click on the setup.exe and selecting Run as Administrator. If it doesn't help you then you need to change the user permission from administrator account.

If you are unable to install the software it means that you don't have administrator rights.Its due to ntfs permission ,you must install it with login into your account as administrator..just make one more administrator account in safe mode and try whether you are able to do fix the issue or not.
