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.

Cannot Change Backup Settings

I set up windows backup to my drive h: passport, but passport wasn't big enough. I want to backup to "networkmybookworld1public". Now when i try to change the backup settings, i only see h: passport or the dvd drive as options, with the message "windows can't find the disk or network location where backup is being saved". I can't browse to or add networkmybookworld1public. It won't let me change or delete any backup settings, or add or point to "networkmybookworld1public.

It also won't let me 'setup backup' i guess since it was already set up once. How do i delete the original setup so that i can re-setup backup? How do i select or point to networkmybookworld1public? When i go to computer, i see network with mybookworld1 under it.

Change Adapter Settings Blank

I'm using a copy of windows 7 that i upgraded from a vista pc, the problem is that every time i go into network and sharing center, and then click on change adapter settings the options are completely blank. There's nothing to click on in the windows, no icons no text, nothing. Normally this wouldn't be a problem for me, a short reinstall of my network drivers got my internet up and working again fine, but i use a program called hamachi that was destroyed in the upgrade.

To fix it, i need to get into this menu, as i said my normal internet works perfectly it's only this small glitch that's giving me problems. I've researched people having similar issues with this program that are only solved through a clean install of windows, which i'd like to avoid if at all possible. I'm almost certain it's a problem with the registry, any help would be appreciated.

Unable To Change Backup Settings

Config: windows 7 64 bit home premium. After completing a backup to an external hdd (usb), i can no longer get a response from clicking on the backup now button, or "change settings" or " change schedule" links. Windows will complete a backup to the drive only through the auto-play function
When the drive is first plugged in. Windows backup will not function with any other external drives either, only the original one on which the first backup was done.

Security Center Can't Change Your Automatic Update Settings

Windows update cannot be opened and windows update settings cannot be changed. When you click on the windows update tab, nothing opens. If i try to change windows update settings, it displays an error message saying, "security center can't change your automatic update settings". This error message does not cite any number. As suggested to somebody in the forum with a similar problem, i tried a virus and malware scan, the result: no viruses or malware detected. Every other suggestion i found does not get me anywhere. What do you suggest?

Restoring Dell Computer To Factory Settings

Last year, i downloaded the beta, window 7 rc and it has worked very well for most of the time. Since i like it better then vista i continue using it. However, about a month ago, something went wrong with the computer. My system restore seem not to work as well and it would lock up and crash from time to time. So since window 7 rc was going to expire, i thought it would be a good time to do a complete clean recovery and then do an upgrade of window 7. But i have not been successful. I tried every possible way to do a complete recovery. I need to do this, as you all know, and want to get this done before march 1, 2010.

If someone can just tell me what i need to do. One more last attempt, which might be helpful, but did not work is, that i clicked on recovery drive (d) then i click on tools, then i click on pc restore (run as admins), then a window comes up called: welcome to dell factory image restore, then i pressed next (which says as a reminder, that this utility will restore the system software to the state it was in when it left the factory. And then, the window came up that says, confirm data deletion, which i would confirm by simply checking the box, for yes). I thought finally i got it. But 1/3 it loaded and stopped with a small box saying (error). So i hope someone can help me with my problem.

All Program Settings

I have a question about how to organize my "all programs" settings. When i click start then all programs, all my folders are at the bottom and misc. Files are on the top. I would like to put the folders in alphabetical order and have the misc. Files last. It was easy to do on all the other window's programs but i can't seem to find a way with windows 7.

Windows Applied Some Other Form Of Compatibility Settings To Program

Windows told me some "other" form of compatibility settings were applied to a program, what, where and why? I've ran the program ultramon 64bit for several weeks on my windows 7 x64 system. It's been running fine but one day when i resumed from suspend it crashed and windows popped up a dialog telling me the program wasn't fully compatible in some sense and that windows had automatically applied some form of compatibility setting to the program which would be used the next time it was started. I was also told i couldn't change the setting or something in the line of that.

Now the point is that two programs crashed when i resumed and this probably happened because i resumed very quickly after suspending, i know this can happen when i do that, so there probably is absolutely nothing wrong with the program and it probably doesn't need any "special" setting like this.

I'd like to know what kind of setting this "hidden" compatibility setting is, where it is, what it does and how i change it. Some people recommended me a system restore but i'd rather not do this as i will have to redo some installations etc. I'd rather just remove the compatibility setting but i can't find any info anywhere on what the setting is, what it does or where it is. Sorry for not having more information about the name of the setting, the contents of the dialog etc, i had to close it to proceed with working. Hope you still know what i am talking about here. It's not the normal "compatibility tab" settings, it's something else.

Icons Issue When Accidentally Change Default Program

I accidentally changed the default program used to open .zip files under one of my user accounts (in windows 7 home premium 64-bit). Based on another user account, i figured out that it should be set to windows explorer. Changing it back restored the functionality - so zip files are once again opening correctly. But the .zip files now appear as generic windows explorer icons rather than the previous compressed folder icon (looks like a folder with a zipper). Is there any way to restore the zip icon?

Can't Change Default Program For Image Files

I have just upgraded from the coreldraw x4 suite of graphics/image processing applications to version x5 on my windows 7 ultimate machine. The new version runs fine, so i uninstalled the x4 version. I then wanted to make photopaint the default program for editing a range of image file formats (i use picassa as my album and right clicking to select the program to edit the image is really great).

For some reason, however, photopaint (x5) doesn't appear in the list. When i 'browse' for it i can find the photopaint .exe file. However, after i select it and click 'open' (and the 'browse window closes) there is no change to the default program. The only correct file:program association i can see is for the native corel image format (. Cpt). What gives?

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?

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?

Services Settings

I have been trying to maximize the performance of my rig since i only have 4 gigs of ram and my ancient 1 year old mobo can hardly cut it with windows 7 (sarcasm intended). So, i have been fiddling with services but i occasionally mess things up and i end up painstakingly trying to reset those service back to their defaults, one at a time. How hard could it be for the services panel to have a ‘default" or "reset" button? So when people like myself (i’m not very smart) mess up a setting, we can simply click "reset" and the ole’, comfy, default services fix my screwup. Are there other ways to do this other than the aforementioned "by hand" method. Software? Utilities?

Regionalization Settings

It appears that when i change the regionalization settings to prc china, all menus become chinese regardless of how i configure it. In xp, i was able to change this and the menus remained in english. My problem is that with visual basic 6 programs, the text is not unicode. In order to read chinese in my program, i need to maintain english menus but support chinese as big 5, etc and not unicode. This effects microsoft sapi function for foreign languages. Does anyone know how to configure this?

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?
