System Administrator Has Set Policies To Prevent This Installation

When trying to install overdrive media console i get the error "system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation", but i am the administrator. I am running windows 7 64 bit. I have tried to change uac settings but that didn't work, and i tried to "run as administrator" by going under properties on that folder, but the box was grayed out, so i couldn't do that. Any suggestions?

Every Program Is Restricted And Ask For System Administrator

I foolishly messed with "gpedit. Msc" to prevent certain programs from popping up on some users profiles in windows 7. Now every single program is restricted and states for me to contact a system administrator (which is me). I was trying to restrict a program as stated before, but i messed with the gpedit. Msc, now all but one program is restricted to me and i've tired to go back to the gpedit. Msc but that too is restricted. I am currently using windows 7 ultimate 32-bit version.

System Restore Has Been Turned Off By Administrator

System restore has been turned off by your system administrator. I thought my problem was a easy one but not so. I am logged in as administrator windows 7 ultimate, i went to restore my system files and turned them off by mistake, so that i thought was no problem, i did know that it deletes all system restore files, so off i go again to turn them back on and guess what, it says the administrator had to be informed as they turned them off, after trying many ways of doing this, i resorted to no protection on my uac, this did not help, tried a new uac that did not help either, so now i am on my hands and knees hoping that someone out there can help, after such a simple mistake which i was allowed to do because i was administrator, i have gone to not even being able to system restore back on without contacting my administrator!

Error - Admin Policy Is Set To Not Allow To Install .msi Programs

Can't install programs (. Msi?), And the error message says that it's because the admin policy is set to not allow it. But i'm the admin, i've recently installed windows 7, and, as the title says, there are some programs i can't install. What i've noticed is that they are "msi" files (i think) - don't know if this means anything or not. I get an error message (red "x") that says that the system admin doesn't allow such a file to be installed, but i'm the sys admin. I took a gander at the admin tools (control panel), but i don't understand most of what's there.

Installation Cannot See Drive After System Partition

I recently got a hewlett packard 630 laptop which had linux os. I decided to replace it with windows 7 and face two major issues:

1) when i was installing win 7, it asked me to create a new hard drive because the 10gb partition could not fit win 7 ultimate 64-bit i wanted to install. I therefore created a 20gb hard drive and completed win 7 installation through usb. However, when i finished i could only see the 20gb hard drive and not the remaining 450gb.

2) i installed win 7 and ms office 2010 properly. However, the system is missing hp tools, such as network, ethernet, pci etc. As a result, i do not have internet. I tried a number of drivers from the hp site, with no success. How do i correct the problems above?

When i apply i receive error message that denies certain root directory system files as well as some directories structures. No problem with hardware because i was effectively doing this on vista machine with no issues. Is there a work around?

How To Prevent Users From Ejecting Sata Drive ?

Hi, i've a second sata drive (wdc wd15ears-00z5b1 if it matters), that windows 7 thinks is removable, and shows in the "safely remove hardware and eject media" applet, allowing any user to "eject" it. The hard drive is not removable, but sometimes users (non-admin) occasionally click "eject" it and remove from the system, forcing me to restart computer to bring it back. How do i disable this functionality and tell windows 7 this drive is not removable and may not be "ejected" by my users?

Administrator As Only User - Permission Error

I installed windows 7, choosing custom to get maximum benefit over vista. The only user account i have setup is that of an administrator. I have not password protected it yet. I copy/pasted my mcafee program folders from my external hard drive to the programs folder and of course it wont function - i need to reinstall it from their website. When i try to delete the folder it drops an error message: folder access denied - you need permission to perform this action - you require permission from the administrators to make changes to this folder. As far as i can tell i am the only user and the administrator.

Unable To Set Headset As Default

Unable to set headset as default default but works when using the 'test' option in . In the past i was able to switch between default audio devices on my computer, from the headset to the speakers. However, about a week ago, i could no longer do so. I realized this problem when i tried to switch from speakers to a headset as a default device (both speakers and headset are connected).

In the playback options, i right clicked the corresponding device (my 2-c-media usb headphone set) and clicked on "set as default device". However, the icon did not change from the phone-shaped icon into the check-mark icon. I proceeded to check if my device was working properly by clicking on "test" instead of "set as default device".

I was able to perfectly hear the test sound through the headphone set, but i am still unable to set it as my default device. I game a lot so i usually set my headset as the default device to prevent noise pollution in my house. I am using a windows 7 64-bit. Home premium.

Cannot Set A Paging File Size

The paging file wont set on the main drive (c:). I get a dialogue box on start up saying that it needs to be set. Each time i try to set it either manually or clicking on 'manage automatically' it wont set and i get the same message on each reboot. It doesn't matter what option i set it always comes back to "no page file" after i restart. This is a new windows 7 install on a new hp desktop. I noticed that several people have posted having the same problem, any ideas? I have more than enough disk space. And i'm using the suggested size.

All Program Icons Are Set To Spreadsheet

My baby sister recently phoned me with a pretty serious problem and seeing as how in the family im the tech dude i found myself at a loss with her error.
 
The error is as follows: all of the programs on her pc try to open in spreadsheet, either in the start menu or the desktop. She told me that when she changes the default starting it changes all of them to the same and certain programs cannot be changed at all.
 
Is there a way to fix this without a major overhaul being done? As i have to do it via phone and she isn't that great with technology.

Set Email Address In Live

How do i set an email address in windows live? Every time i go to windows live forum and do a post it channels me into select windows -> win 7 etc etc.

I don't really understand how i get to ask a question about windows live. I set up windows live with an id that was like an email address . @Me.com, but wasn't really one, just an id i fancied, cos the software didn't ask for an email address. Now every where i go to do with windows live (eg this forum) it says ill get informed of things. How will it inform me if it doesn't have my email address, doesn't it know i didn't give it an email address?

I ve looked all around my profile and what ever other items i can go to under windows live when im logged in and i cant find anywhere it allows me to provide an email addr'. I am really confused about all these windows live items. I cant find a no advertising style page that just explains very simply what it actually is!

How To Undo Set Programs Associations?

I just got a new computer and installed itunes onto it. I started to try and attempt to move my library from another computer to my new one when itunes asked me to set associations for it. I didn't understand what i was doing and i just clicked select all and went on my way. Now, my computer's screen goes bright to dark and black and in intermittent patterns. I can't change it back and i'm worried it's compromised my computer. I don't understand what's happening other than it's saying that it's due to a program called dcpsysmgr from dell inc. Can someone please explain to me what's going on and how to fix it!

Accidentally Set Same Default Program

I was trying to open dell webcam central because it wasn't working. I right click and picked open with, then pick default opener. I did not notice that the box that says something along the lines of "make default for all programs" was checked. Now any time i try to open any program it opens the webcam. I have tried doing system restore, but received an error message concerning a file problem. It said to try turning off my antivirus, which i did and it still didn't work. I've tried to go back and select the default program for each program, but it doesn't change anything.

Error - Another Installation Is Already In Progress

"another installation is already in progress" error message preventing installation of windows updates and other programs. I am having the recurring problem, usually comes up when windows update has run, of the error message "another installation is already in progress". This is interfering with my ability to install other software.

I have had this problem in the past and solved it by choosing a selective start up in ms config but that is no longer working. Is there another way to solve this issue? I would also like to know why this is happening. Is it a conflict on my end or a software issue that is common?

Error On Installation Key

I got a new hard drive today, and without thinking i just loaded my windows 7 disc for the os. My computer originally came with windows xp. I tried to put in my 7 activation key, but the system said this key only worked as an upgrade. I then tried to put in my xp activation key, and the system said it wasn't a windows 7 key. Is there some way that i can activate my windows without reformatting and reinstalling through two operating systems? I have my keys for the original xp and my upgrade vista and 7 systems.

Installation Package Error

After using windows upgrade from vista to 7 (clean install). I am constantly getting this error message this installation package could not be opened verify that the package exists and that you can access it or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows package. This happens when trying to install programs that i have checked with the program makers website and have confirmed they are compatibility with windows 7.

Can anyone help please?

Cfs3 Installation Error

I just bought a copy of cfs3 so i could run bhh:off, which requires cfs3. I have been unsuccessful in completing installation of the simulation on my vista 64-bit sli pc.

I returned the first copy of the game since the error message referenced a possible corrupted cab6. Cab file. On the replacement copy, i got the same error. The error message also recommended that i restart my computer which i did and alluded to a possible inadequate swap file size. I have two 1tb sata hard drives, 8gb of ram, and twin geforce9500 1gb video cards running in sli. Hardware should not be a limitation.

I went into control panel, system and upgraded the virtual memory setting from 8gb to 13gb (system recommended 12+gb). This still didn't work. I called microsoft support for a live technician and she informed me that support for cfs3 expired in apr 2008. I looked down the list of cfs3 forum items and didn't see an installation issue/solution listed.
