Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?

Do You Want This Program To Change Settings On Your Computer

Do you want this program to change settings on your computer? Yes. You must be an administrator to run this program for the first time. This is my problem when i try to run a game. I am the administrator on my computer. My computer game disc will not let me play because it says i am not the administrator so i cannot allow the program to change settings on my computer. I am the administrator on my computer. Geek squad said there is something wrong with the game program. So i exchanged it and it still wont work.

Computer Has Duplicate Set Of Program Files

New gateway computer/all in one/64bit/more space than i've ever had and operates okay. The computer files reflect "program files" and then "program files (86)". Many appear to be duplicates. If i merge these files, will it adversely affect the performance of the computer? Can some of the files in the "program files" that are the exact same files as are in "program files (86)" be deleted or would that automatically be done with a drag and drop manuever? I'm really confused. I did ask gateway, but they would not answer the question and just referred me to the manual. It does not address this issue. Can anyone out there help me with this intriguing but irritating mystery?

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Cannot Hibernate Computer

My laptop is a t400 thinkpad lenovo with windows 7. Whenever i try to hibernate it, after the screen turns off it beeps and the "sleep mode" led turns on. The computer doesn't go to hibernation and power doesn't go off. In this situation the only thing i can do is to push the power button for four seconds to kill the power manually and off course next time i turn it on it asks to load the safe mode because of improper shut down. I tries system recovery of windows but it didn't help. The shutdown and sleep both work properly. Anybody has any idea how can i fix this?

Computer Sleep

I set my computer to sleep after 30 minutes. It did go to sleep. When i moved the mouse to wake it up, only the wallpaper loaded up. No icons at all. I had to turn it off by the on and off button on the tower. Not a good idea, but that was the only way i could restart my computer, after it turned on again all my icons were there and i was able to resume all the functions again. Any ideas how to set it to sleep without this problem? This is a new windows 7 computer. Hp pavillion elite 137c

Computer Not Updating

My computer is set to automatically update every day, but has not been updating at all for the past year. When i check for updates, a message appears that says "failed"  and when i look to see the list of things that try to update, they all say "failed. "  When it searches for updates, a code comes up that says "error" with a bunch of numbers after it. Because of the computer unable to update, i am no longer able to print or open up any microsoft programs, such as word or excel.

When i try to open these programs, it tells me that not updating the computer could affect the stability of the computer and that i would need to go to windows update to install new updates. When i opened up windows update, it said that i must first install an update for windows update. I clicked "install now" and it attempts to install, but then goes right back to the original page.

The other night i went online to see what else i could do about this. Several websites said that the problem was most likely from the catroot2 folder and that renaming this folder to catroot2old would fix the problem. I tried this and it would not allow me to change the name. Now i don't know what else to do.

Cannot Boot Up Computer

I cannot seem to load my windows operating system. Before this problem occurred, my computer was installing windows updates, but then it freezes and i had to forcefully shut it down. After this, everytime i turn on my computer, it will take a long time to load up and then it shows that windows is on stage three out of three of installing updates, but it always remains at 0%. Fter two or three minutes, my computer will just reboot and start the whole process again. Now it keeps looping, and i cant even log on my user.

Registration On Second Computer

I recently purchased windows 7 to put on an old xp machine. Not long after that, the machine had a motherboard failure, and was not worth repairing and is unusable. I went ahead and installed the purchased version of win 7 on yet another machine, but windows will not activate. Im sure its because i had activated it on the other machine, but now am i just out of luck. I spent quite a bit, and only got to use the os for about a month. I was hoping since i was no longer using it on the broken machine i could use it on another. Is there any way to activate it?

Installing On New Computer

I am going to be receiving a refurbished computer here soon, i have purchased the windows 7 copy to upgrade from vista. My question is do i just do upgrade or customize and do like a clean install. I will have really nothing on this computer other than what comes on it already. If i do a clean install do i lose things such as (and i know these arnt important things but there just small easy details to elaborate with) solitare, calculator, and meaningless things that like. Or are all of those things then re-installed with the windows 7 reprogram, or will all that stuff then be on other software disks i receive with the computer. Again sorry to sound stupid just want to make sure i do things correctly and should i just do the upgrade or a clean sweep on a new system.

Usb Is Recognised, But Does Not Appear In My Computer

I've searched through the forums here, and tried many of the answers people have given for this problem. I tried unchecking the 'hide empty drives in the computer folder' option. I also tried going through disk management and changing the drive letter, but this option does not even appear. The drives are marked unallocated, and the only options i have are about shrinking or spanning volumes. The drives work fine in other computers, and is recognized when it is plugged in because it gives me the 'remove safely' option.

Update Restarts Computer

Each night windows update restarts my computer and updates my driver software for wireless. I have to roll back the driver to get the wireless to work. Not sure why this is happening or what the root cause is, but each night the driver is updated by windows update and the wireless radio won't work. I then go and roll back the driver to the previous version and it works perfectly. I have 64 bit windows 7 hp laptop with an atheros ar9285 802. 11 b/g wifi adapter. If i click update driver in the device manager the same thing occurs.
