Hi I have K-9 in my office. I want to stop my employee from downloading this uninstall and deactivating the K-9. How do I do this?


Give your employee a "Limited Rights" user account on the computer, and set up an "Administrator Rights" user account with a password that only you know. Users with limited rights are not able to install/uninstall programs without the administrator password.

Did I solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

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.

Is the account you use an administrator account? The reason I ask is I have seen similar bahavior on office 2000 where the user account does not have the rights to set up Word properly. If it is limited user, temporarily make the account administrator, load word, and then close it. then put the account back limited user if you wish, it should not need admin again. Microsoft never test their products on limited user accounts....

You need to be logged onto the computer as administrator.

Go into control panel, then user accounts. Find your account and see if it says limited user or administrator. If is says limited, then there has to be an admin account, you'll have to log into that one.
