No Administrator Privileges

I just bought a new toshiba laptop today, and set it up. Everything seemed to go smoothly, until i tried to delete the one of the silly desktop shortcuts that was pre-installed by toshiba. Then user account control took over and said that i needed to be logged in as the administrator to do this. It said that i have to type a password and click yes, or no. There is no space to enter a password, and the 'yes' box is disabled. My only choice is to click the 'no' and go back to the drawing board.

The same happens when i tried to install adobe flash player. I also tried to change my account (which is marked as a 'standard account' into an administrator one, but the same message occurs. This is very frustrating, what use is a computer if i can't delete or install the programmes i want to use?!

Administrator Permissions / Privileges

Another new computer running windows 7. I'm pleased with windows 7 but have encountered the problem of being owner and administrator account but there are privileges not allowed. The error reads "cannot import c:usersdocumentsieopen. Reg: error accessing registry. " I have used this script before on a windows xp computer and had no trouble at all. I am asking someone to help me change the administrator privileges so i can add to the registry. Like the answers i read it is hard to believe a computer with me as administrator doesn't have these privileges.

Problem With Administrator Privileges Inconsistency

Running windows 7 64-bit on a quad processor. I am the only user. Sometimes i have no problem with administrator rights and can do what i need to do. Sometimes a message pops up saying i need administrator rights to do something and i tell it to continue and it does the function. Other times the system tells me i can't update my software or install new software because i lack administrator rights. In some of these cases it will not do the function.

My outlook 2007 crashes all the time and the forums all tell me to disable add-ins but the automatic add-ins from microsoft will not allow me to disable them because the system says i lack administrator rights. The automatic updates automatically install microsoft updates which i neither use nor want for coordination with mobile devices. I would like to remove those add-ins and see if outlook 2007 would stop crashing.

(No error codes, it just instantly goes away. ) How do i make sure i have administrator rights everywhere in my system not just seemingly in some places?This is very frustrating.

Win7 Doesn't Let Me Use Administrator Privileges

I'm having an extremely annoying problem on my w7. Every once in a while this os doesn't let me do certain commands, such as updating a program (a game in this case) or installing a stupid program which is for one reason or another necessary for using another program and it says i need administrator's privileges. Well guess what, i am using the one and only user of this computer which is the admin's user, so there's no reason i can't do these things i want. That would make sense if it would ask me the password again when i try to do these things i want, but it doesn't! How can i fix this?

Error 31 - Cannot Install Network Drivers - Installation Was Interrupted

Cannot install drivers for networking, error 31, goes 90% complete then "installation was interrupted". This morning i turned on my dell 1640xps laptop and got a screen resolution like 'safe mode' and a dialogue box showing progress of updating every driver i had. Had the machine 6 months and never seen this before. After the install my network drivers were reported as unsuccessful.

Used another machine to access internet and download new drivers but as the installation neared completion it reported an error 31, windows installer was interrupted, no driver installed. I've been working at this for 10 hours now and finally restored my machine to yesterday's config. What program did this? Something in windows update?

Cannot Use Administrator Rights To Install Software

I upgraded to windows 7 from vista 64. I had the following issue in vista. One of the dlls (16 bit?) Would not load and every time i restarted the laptop (sony vaio), it would not load and gave me a reminder. I have the same issue with windows 7 and the following. I can not load any software, getting the message that i do not have access to keys (in the case of itunes). It will not accept windows updates. I have a freeagent drive and it will not allow it to back up in any form. I attempted to do a 'burn down' installation of windows 7, to clean out any prior programs or data and it will not let me initiate any action from the windows 7 disk at all.

Unable To Install Programs Due To Not Being Computer Administrator

Why am i unable to install programs due to 'not being the computer administrator' when i am the administrator? The last couple of times i have tried to install programs, such as adobe reader, a message comes up saying i do not have permission to install and must re-try when logged on as the administrator. But i have only the one user account on the computer and it says i am the administrator. I have tried granting permission to my user account (the same one is listed separately, once as administrator and again as what i have called it) to act as administrator but it said i am not allowed to do this.

Install Missing Drivers

I recently upgraded my lenovo t61 laptop from it's original 100gb hard drive to a 500gb hard drive. After installing windows 7, updating and restarting a few times, i noticed that i was still missing 2 drivers, both called "base system device". I went to lenovos' driver web site, looked through what was offered but could not figure out what was missing. I then called lenovo directly and they said that it was a windows 7 problem, not a lenovo problem so they don't know how to deal with it.

Any assistance to resolve this issue and get me my drivers would be greatly appreciated.

Unable To Install Drivers On Win 7

It seems that i cannot install drivers for my devices. Whenever i plug a usb/thumb drive, windows should automatically install the drivers for me to use the device but i can't. I tried plugging 2 different usbs but neither of them won't install nor work. Also, i have an epson stylus t10 printer, i turned it on so that windows should be able to detect the printer and install the drivers automatically but it won't (i'm stuck at the "installing device driver software" thing then eventually "the device driver software was not installed bla bla bla"). I even manually installed the drivers using the cd but it says "product could not be recognized".

Update: my computer won't let me install the drivers manually. I downloaded the drivers but i always encounter an error during install. I tried plugging different devices. e.g. Camera, printer, usb etc.

Their drivers won't install. It fails all the time. Nd it takes too long to access performance information and tools. It also takes too long to retrieve the system rating.

Printer Spooler Is Stopped And Cannot Install Drivers

All printers are gone, when i try to install the drivers for local or network printers it says the printer spooler is stopped and cannot install drivers. I went to the services page and started the printer spool and rebooted (tried several times) and it still has the same error.

Every few times i reboot all of the printers (local and network) will be shown in the devices and printers area but it will not permit any printing. When i reboot all of the printers will be gone again except the two local usb printers (all are vista compatible) and i am still unable to print no matter what printer or solution i have tried.

Not able to print
Printer spool not working (started but windows 7 thinks it is stopped)
Hp laserjet 3300 printer not recognized
I have rebooted several times with no lick

Printers are gone every few times computer starts then appear again but do not work either way
Downloaded all of the latest drivers and tried to install but windows 7 printer spool is not working
Called windows 7 support and was told i had to pay $299 to speak with anyone. I went out tonight and bought a $2900 macbook pro and plan on buying mac's for the entire company after another failure by microsoft.

Unable To Install Drivers For Kodak Printer

I am having issues installing printer drivers on my laptop. I am connecting via usb and window displays the installing device drivers at the bottom left. I then get an error message "device driver software was not successfully installed". I have went to the manufactures website and manually downloaded the driver software for the printer. During the install through the manufactures software i get the same results. I have tried this for 2 different printers hp and kodak. I have tried lowering firewall. Same result.

Running in safe mode. Same results. I am the admin on the laptop. The kodak printer was working on the laptop before i had an issue with an a/v program that would not install. The a/v program was listed on the windows 7 site and i have installed it on another computer of mine running vista with no issues. But i do believe something was changed and or deleted during the attempt by me and the a/v programs tech support. I have installed other software while having this issue and am having no troubles installing programs. Just printer drivers. I am running a different anti virus now, and have also tried disabling it during the printer driver install with same results.

Can't Install X86 Printer Drivers

A w7hp x64 machine has a brother mfc240c attached via usb cable. Downloaded 64 bit driver from brother and the printer works locally. Shared the printer and a networked xp pro x86 machine discovers the printer, but will not install the drivers. Says no suitable drivers found. I have supplied the original x86 drivers in a local location.

There are two . Inf files, but both produce the same response. This unit was previously working fine when shared by a now retired xp home machine. In the sharing dialog on the w7hp machine, when i try to install the x86 drivers under additional drivers, i get the same response about no suitable drivers.

Does anyone have a solution? It seems that the 64 bit windows won't permit x86 drivers.

Cannot Install Belkin Usb Wifi Drivers

I have recently purchased a belkin surf+ b300 f7d2101ed and i'm not able to install it on my windows 7 (32bit) pro system. I've only just installed windows 7 so its a fresh installation.
I install the software included and i keep getting a pop up balloon saying that the driver has not installed properly.

I have tried going into the device manager and the device is listed under network controllers, but not but not as the device name but "connect usb wireless" (or something along those lines).
I have then tried to manually update the driver and specifying the cd drive to look for driver. It sees the driver, attempts to install it and then i get a screen saying that the driver did not install properly as it could not find the file specified.

I have also tried downloading the latest install program from the belkin website, but still cannot get the device to work. Does anyone know how i install this device?

Cannot Install Usb Port Drivers For Hp Dv6

So basically my problem started when i bought an external hard drive. Windows could not find drivers for it. Someone advised me to uninstall all my usb controllers from device manager, which i did. But after i restarted my pc, windows couldn't find drivers for any of my usb controllers either! However, after numerous uninstalls of the devices, it has installed only some of the usb ports. The rest are being shown as "unknown devices" and i can't even manually update them nor does windows update do anything. As a result, none of my usb ports are working.

I am running windows 7 64-bit with an hp dv6 laptop and my usb controllers are intel ich9 family usb universal host controllers/intel ich9 family usb2 enhanced host controllers. The reason i know the unknown devices are the usb ports is because under location in properties they are being shown as "on intel ich9 family usb. "

Nvidia Geforce 8400gt Video Drivers Will Not Install

Video drivers will not install after successful clean upgrade/install of 7 home premium 64 bit on a vaio notebook that was running 32 bit vista. I have an nvidia geforce 8400gt card that isn't being recognized by the new 64 bit os. The video card isn't listed in the device manager, only the standard vga graphics adapter is listed.

When i attempt to install drivers found on nvidia's website, the installation wizard aborts with the message "the nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware?" Any tips for getting my pc to even recognize that this video card is installed?

Evga Geforce 6200 Drivers Install Problem

Evga geforce 6200 256 mb vga drivers refuse to install from disk, nvidia, and windows update (error 80070005)! No aero in windows 7 ultimate!

Drivers site: http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx?Lang=en-us

Tried the newest and the 2nd newest version in the 'beta and archived drivers'. Both failed to install for unknown reasons. At the end of the install shield installation where it's supposed to say something like "finished" it says that the system remains unchanged.

Went to 'device manager' > 'properties' of the device > 'details' tab > 'install error' says "access is denied. 00000005". The 'device status' in the 'general' tab says:

"This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1) access is denied. To find a driver for this device, click update driver. " Which fails, since i think  it relies on windows update, which fails.

Geforce Gtx 260m Video Drivers Will Not Install

After windows 7 clean install video drivers will not install and say hardware that worked a mere few days ago no longer exist. When i first received windows 7 in the mail a couple weeks ago i decided to do an upgrade from vista rather than a clean install. At first it seemed fine, but then i noticed windows were crashing left, right and center and my computer was freezing at random occasions and quite often. So this week i finally caved in and decided to do a clean install and start from scratch. Backed up my files on an an external hard drive and got down to business.

Windows 7 finally installed and i had absolutely no freezing or issues. Then i realized aero, thumbnails and other effects were not working. I decided to do a windows rating and for some reason my video card was a 1. 0 and diverted to "standard vga graphics adaptor" from my normal 1gb nvidia geforce gtx 260m. I then tried to install the proper driver downloaded directly from the nvidia site only to receive the error "the nvidia setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware".

I then tried disabling the drivers in the control panel, in the bios menu, auto repair though system security in the control panel and every other method from reinstalling windows 7. The most frustrating thing was that when i did an upgrade the driver worked perfectly and i had no problems whatsoever with it despite all the crashing and freezing. This is a brand new laptop from only a few months ago.

Does anyone have any recommendations? 

Edit: one of my hard drives are now missing, the computer tried to boot up and said no os existed, i've had my computer start and go to a black screen where the desktop should have been, froze on startup and various other problems. None of these issues occurred with vista, let alone the upgraded windows 7 and now i'm beginning to worry just what the clean install did to my computer.
