Yes, you have to have administrator rights to add/remove programs.

Log out and then log in as administrator:
First you must ensure that the Administrator Account is enabled:
1 open Control Panel
2 open Administrative Tools
3 open Local Security Policy
4 expand Local Policies
5 click on Security Options
6 ensure that Accounts: Administrator account status is enabled

1 open Control Panel
2 open User Accounts
3 click Change the way users log on or log off
4 untick Use the Welcome Screen
5 click Apply Options
You will now be able to log on as Administrator in Normal Mode

Administrator password locked askesforwindowsrepair disk will gothrogh program then says has no hard drive can i reset harddrive or password dont havepassword windowswillnot display

You can recover windows password with windows password recovery tool. I know a tool named "windows login recovery" that can remove windows password without losing any data and you needn't reinstall windows OS. Download it from and burn the program to a blank CD or a usb flash drive, insert the CD into the problem computer and reset your password to “Blank”. By the way, it is also useful to recover administrator password.

I think you don't have administrator password.They give you user password.For this you need to know admin password to gain admin privilege.You ask them for admin password. You can also change admin pass or remove the pass with Ultimate BootCD. You can download it from internet. Also many software have that can remove admin pass. Googling and get it.For further help plz contact.

Installing BT Voyager 105 on XP Pro PC shows newdev.dll error

I recently had this problem after buying a voyager 210 modem/router to replace the voyager 105 (in my case supplied for AOL broadband)

I tried to uninstall the voyager 105 and encountered exactly this problem - newdev.dll missing, Admin privileges required

After alot of Internet searching I found no answers. But in desperation tried this and it worked. I am by no means any computer expert so don’t blame me if this does not work for you, or damages your machine.

To install my 210 modem I was following instructions found here - But first I had to get rid of the 210

Here is what I did, exactly as I did it (some of it is probably unnecessary) Further below is a condensed version I expect would work.

1) Firstly I restarted in safe mode by pressing F8 in start-up ( I was doing this because i had remembered an administrator profile and considered attempting to uninstall from there.)

2) I logged on as the administrator.

3) Attempted to uninstall the voyager 105 via control panel and via the uninstall icon in the programme folder. - Both Failed with the above-mentioned problem.

4) I navigated to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files)

5) There I highlighted the folders "British Telecom”, "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", "Voyager Test". I cut these folders wholesale and pasted them to my USB pen/stick (incase I needed to put them back)

6) I then ran disk cleanup (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools.)

7) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged the USB pen/stick and the USB and DSL cables from the back of the Voyager 105.

8)I turned the computer back on (starting up normally), logged on with my normal username which has admin privileges. Ran the driver install for my new router (previously downloaded from BT at –( It stated that a BT driver was already installed.

9) Navigated to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall …. AND IT DID IT! No error, or messages about newdev.dll or privileges.

10) This left me free to install my new driver and go through its install process ending in plugging the USB into the back of the modem and having internet again.

Here is what I expect would work

1) Turn on and log on to any account with admin privileges.

2) Navigate to programme files. (Start> My computer> C drive> Programme files).

3) Select and delete (or to be safe, cut and paste to a removable drive) the folders "British Telecom", "BT Voyager 105 ADSL modem", " Voyager Modem Drivers", and "Voyager Test".

4) Remove removable drive and run disk clean up (Start> All Programmes> Accessories> System Tools).

5) Then I turned off my computer and unplugged existing modem.

6) Turn on computer log back onto account with admin privileges. Navigate to add/remove programmes (Start> Control panel> add/remove programmes) selected the BT driver from the list selected uninstall.

7) Install desired drivers/modem.

this is a known problem in windows.
The problem occurs when some process tries to execute the instructions which need admin credentials.

This should work.

if you have attached a device remove it and then start up pc but keep pressing F8 to get a menu up, choose safe mode, then you will see your desktop and an admin account.

Click on this then go to start, programmes,accessories, system tools then choose system restore, then choose a date before you installed the driver, then restart the system

I own a acer ferrari 3400

The freezing, if you say there are no registry problems, could be a spyware or trojan running in the back ground. although you say you have norton it doesnt pick everything up, and some trojans cannot be removed when the pc is running normally so the best thing to do is start the notebook in safe mode (F8) on boot up and select start windows in safe mode) and run both the below programmes. They are both free and free updating, the registry cleaner programme to download first clears any unused or irrelevant registry files, the second is an anti spyware removal programme to check for things norton has missed. Another problem could be corrupt or conflicting drivers so ensure all you drivers are upto date on the Acer website.
