I'm trying to install a program and my computer keeps telling me I don't have administrator privileges?


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)

Lost administartor rights


Click start Control Panel. Select "User Accounts and Family Safety," then "User Accounts." Click "Turn User Account Control on or off." Remove the check mark next to "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer." Click "OK." Set All Accounts to Administrator Still in the UAC section of Control Panel, select "Manage another account," and click on a user account. Click on "Change the account type." When working with multiple accounts, some changes can only be made if you and the account holder are both logged in with "Administrator" accounts so you need to change all user accounts to "Administrator." When you are done making changes, you can change them back to "Standard," but always leave at least one "Administrator" account. Select the "Administrator" radio button. Click "Change Account Type" at the bottom right. Repeat this procedure to change each user account to "Administrator." When all user accounts have been changed, close the Control Panel. Create a Full Administrator Account Click "Start" (the Windows Vista icon in the lower left of your screen). In the Search box, type "cmd". Right-click on "cmd," and select "Run as Administrator." An elevated command prompt window will appear. At the command prompt, type "net user administrator /active:yes", and press "Enter." Choose a password and assign it to the "Administrator" account, by typing "net user administrator 'password'", where 'password' is your selected password. For instance, if your password is "abc," type "net user administrator abc". Press "Enter." Type "exit" and press "Enter." Log off. When you log back into your "Administrator" account, you will have full rights.

OK; after giving up on lousy tech support I got it working after doing the following (not sure if all required, but this is what I did)
1. Gave admin rights to C:\Program Files (x86)\PFU
2. Updated to latest ScanSnap Manager V5.0 L21
3, Copied C:\Users\<admin acct>\AppData\Roaming\PFU directory to C:\Users\All Users

Good luck...

I have a HP compaq laptop and cant log on as administrator


Hi martyn,

Probably the user profile is corrupted.
Log in to any account and type cmd in the start search bar > now right click on the cmd listed and select run as administrator. Now at the command prompt type net users administrator /active

This will activate the super administrator account. Now log in with this account and make any changes as required.

Hope this helps,
Anup
