I do not know who or what an administrator is how to contact them


That happens when you are running a user account that is not the administrator account. In many ways this is smart because trojans and viruses have the same trouble installing. In schools or office buildings where they want to control who installs what on the computers it makes less problems for an administrator to fix. In your case switch users and log into your administrator account in control panel see if you can give your usual user account administrator privileges, shut down administrator account and log into your usual account and see if it now has administrator privileges in the control panel/user accounts. If not then install software while logged in the administrator account but install for all users from now on. Or you can only use the administrator account and set it up the way you like it (like your regular user account)

MY C:\ SHOWS THAT ACCESS DENIED(WINDOW 7) ON MY HOME LAPTOP. HOW TO REMOVE THAT?


This is almost as bad a lost password, because of the limitations.


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 GUI interface. There is a free boot CD called Hirens Hiren's BootCD. This one command prompt only.

My computer will not allow me to access any administrative functions


you might not be the computers administrator

Here are two views on how to create computer administrators and administration rights

When you log in screen will appear that time just press CTRL+ALT+DEL three times login page will change put there administrator and press enter if any password you put during installation of xp put that password do log in and then go to user accounts which is in control panel from there change the user rights which you want to or

right click to my computer and go to manage and then users from there also you can set rights

Here we go just press this keys ctrl+Alt+Del it will bring you a new logging dialogue box. type the user name as administrator and leave the password blank.


press enter and there you go. that means you will log into your computer as local administrator. from there go to your control panel, click on user accounts, change my account type,

from the next stage choose administrator, click change account type


hope this helps

For some programs my computer dose allow me to access because I AM NOT an adminstrator


You must log onto an account that is an administrator and give your user account administrator power through user accounts in the control panel. I'm assuming your using a windows based machine

Problem


It is a simple matter to add an administrator account to your computer provided you are already logged in as an administrator. If you are logged in as an account created as "limited",as many guest accounts are, you do not have the authority to create an administrator account.Provided you are already an administrator and only want to add a new account follow these steps. From the start button, go to control panel, then user accounts. Click on add account, create a name, click on administrator and just follow the prompts.
