How To Log On As Administrator Permanently?


How do i log on as administrator permanently? I have just gotten a computer with windows 7. I had a problem with a shareware program: the software key wouldn't "take" until i ran the program as administrator. I think it was happening because entering the registration code writes to the registry, and if would only be effective for that session; i.e. , It went back to trial mode with a restart.

Anyway, i am the only user on this computer; the account type is "administrator. " Does this really mean anything? Why do i still have to "log on as administrator"? Can i make this permanent?

Permanently Remove Program From Start Menu Recent List

How to permanently remove a program from start menu recent list? I would like to know how i can prevent a program from appearing in the list of most recently used programs in the start menu under windows 7 (pro).

For instance, "notepad" is in this list, but i only start it by double-clicking text files, never through the start menu. In this manner, 4 of 10 recent menu entries are shortcuts i'll never use and which take away space for other, more valuable shortcuts. I know that i can remove items manually using the right-click-menu ("remove from list"), but i would really prefer a way to make this permanent. Any ideas?

Cannot Log On

We have a family computer with 4 users, 2 of which are administrators (parents). My son cannot log onto the internet from his desktop page. Earlier today a message popped up saying that the computer was infected and a anti virus suite message popped up and wanted to know if we wanted to buy this program. Have no idea how it got on here or where it came from. I have run an anti malware and anti spiware scan on all the drives on the computer and the anti virus suite message doesn't pop up, but he still cannot log onto the internet from his page.

No Log In Or Submit Button

When i want to log in to my email there isn't any log in button. I have to search all over to find where it is by clicking the mouse all over. The same happens on some games, or when i want to order something or doing surveys. It will say click submit and there isn't any button to click. In other words, those buttons or whatever you call them, have disappeared.

Unable To Log On To My Bank

I am unable to log on to my llyodstsb bank. When i go onto bank home page, then click log on button the page, which allows me to fill in my personal details will not load. I never had this problem before. Using the same laptop with internet explorer 8 i could log on without any problems. I have no problems logging on to any other secure sites. I do not have the compatibility button in the top-right corner of the window!. However, when i log on through my dell computer which is running windows xp there is no problem what so ever. I do not understand why i am unable to log on with my laptop running vista, especially when i use to be able to do so!

Unable To Log On To Win7

I am running windows 7 ultimate. I've been running on this for a few months. This morning, i went to log on and got an error invalid log on or password. I tried again, thinking i typed it wrong. Still didn't work. I rebooted in safe mode and was able to successfully log on.

I've created another account that doesn't have a password, and even logging into it i get the error invalid log on or password. I also did a system restore to 3 days ago, this didn't help either. I would simply back up my data while in safe mode and reinstall this laptop, except i have a program installed that i do not have the media for any longer. This is a program i need to do everything i possibly can to avoid loosing.

Black Screen On Log In

I have tried everything i can think of and nothing works. I looked up this problem and got nothing. So what happens is that most of the time when i restart my computer in anything but safemode i get a black screen with nothing on it but the mouse can move around. I first thought that this was a simple error and that i would use the task manager to manually open explorer.exe. Low and behold it freezes on me for about 3 minutes and then it says that i cant open the ctrl + alt + delete menu. So i restart my computer again and this time everything loads normally but now explorer.exe isn't responding correctly.

I can click on anything and everything has that white "program is not responding" color to it. Affter this i'm thinking i must have installed something that is messing with the explorer so i log into the computer running safe mode and everything works, so i thought it confirmed my theory and i did a system restore to the week before this started happening just to be on the safe side. I restarted my computer again and nothing is any different. It's been like this for a few days now what should i do?

Windows Cannot Log You On Because Your Profile Cannot Be Loaded

Powered down my windows 7 professional system and booted up a windows xp drive. Replaced the windows 7 drive back in and came up with this error.

Attached are other event viewer error logs in application section.

Source: user profile service
Event id: 1500
Details: windows cannot log you on because your profile cannot be loaded. Check that you are connected to the network, and that your network is functioning correctly.
Detail - access is denied.

I have had minimal experiance with windows vista as microsoft support kb says to just delete the user profile however i see that as a very weak answer too a problem. Especially for a custom user profile. Any help / advice into this without having to reload the os would be great.

How To Log Certificate Access Attempts?

I am getting an error from outlook 2003 and getting the error message, "the server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified. " I know what the problem is, i need to enable the right certificate, but there's no information as to what certificate it is having a problem with. I need to know the name of the certificate or the certificate authority or whatever.

I actually see that in internet explorer too. Sometimes i might have a problem with a certificate, but it gives no details as to which one. Is there a way to log which certificates windows is trying to access or for the moment at least which one outlook is trying to access?

Cannot Log On To New Created User Account

I created a new standard user account via control panel/user accounts/manage accounts. When i log out of the admin account and try to log on to the newly created account i get error message "the user profile service service failed the logon" "user profile cannot be loaded". Click ok and it logs off. I can still log on to all other 5 accounts which i created after i set up this new laptop (pre-installed with windows 7). When you click on a new account the first time, the system should set up the desktop and create the user folders.

I went back into admin account and checked application event log. Event id 1509 "windows cannot copy file c:usersdefault to location c:usersnew test account. This error may be caused by network problems of insufficient security rights. "  Detail - access is denied.

Cannot Log Into Xp Mode With Integration Turned On

I am using windows 7 enterprise and have downloaded and installed windows virtual pc and xp mode. I used the standard username of xpmuser and a password. Successfully linked to my company shared drives and installed the applications that need to run in xp mode. Fter a reboot of the main pc i can no longer log into xp mode with the hard drive integration turned on. With integration turned on, when i type in the xpmuser password i get a message "the local policy of this system does not allow you to logon interactively". I'm actually logging in twice. As the virtual machine starts, i enter the xpmuser name and password at a 'security' screen, then the xp session starts, and i get the error message above. Since the vm isn't part of a 'real' domain, i can't use my windows logon id, i am using the xmpuser name and password. I've removed and reinstalled virtual pc and xp mode and get back to this same problem. I get everything installed, but when the hardware is rebooted, i can no longer log in to xp mode.

Outlook Xp Problem With Log Into Email Account

When i added my email account to outlook xp under windows 7 i told it to save my password. When i clicked 'test settings' all of the tests completed.

Every time i run outlook xp it requests my password now! It does not ask for a profile. It says: pop. Telus.net, and the 'password' field is empty. When i type in my password it says the server rejected mylog in! If i go to my email account settings the password is in the appropriate field. If i click on 'test settings' all tests pass!

I went into notepad. I typed my password. I selected and copied my password. I went to my email account with internet explorer. I pasted my password into the appropriate field. I clicked 'log in. ' i was successful in logging in. I logged out.

I invoked outlook. It requested my password for: pop. Telus.net. I pasted my password into the appropriate field. I clicked: log in. Outlook told me that my email server had rejected my log in! I logged into my email account. I did not logout. I once again invoked outlook. This time i was not asked for my password. I clicked: send/receive all of my emails were received!

I called my email provider. I asked if he had any idea why outlook was not working. He said he had no idea. This never happened under windows xp. Does anyone know why outlook xp is unable to log into my email account under windows 7? Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access.

Task Manager Can't Log Off User

I have windows 7 home premium with three accounts on it. Frequently someone else uses one of two the standard account on it and locks it down, i come along and log in with my administrators and log in and try to kill off their session. When i run task manager, highlight the standard account and then click logoff i get an error message user amy (sessionid=1) could not be logged off. Access is denied.

I've tried running task-manager from the system32 folder as administrator (even though my account is administrator) but i still get the same message. The amy (the standard user account) at this point shows in task manager as disconnected. How can i log of the other two users without re-booting please?

Can Log Into Admin Account But Not In Limited User

I shut my computer down two weeks ago before i left on a week long work trip. When i returned windows starts up normally except that i couldn't log in to any account. It would just hang at the screen with the spinning circle. I eventually was able to log in in safe mode, and used the fix from prevx.com and now i can log onto my admin account but not my limited account. Also even in my admin account only starcraft 2 works. Every other program i have installed takes ten minutes or more to start up, if they do, and most freeze the first time i click on any menu. For example i tried clicking save as on an open office document and it was hanging for over two hours. Internet explorer, firefox, and chrome don't load at all, while open office and msoffice both load and freeze.

Login As Administrator

I have had a few programs that have asked me to log in as administrator which you think being the only log in i would be but apparently on some programs i don't have the right. I found this:

Click start
- Type: cmd
- Right-click cmd and click run as administrator
- Type: net user administrator /active:yes (notice there is a space between the word "administrator" and the "forward slash"
- Press enter
- Exit
- Restart windows and you will be given the opportunity to log on as administrator. Is there any other way around it?

Administrator Disabled

My administrator account was disabled and i have the same problem as rodek. The only difference is that i did not disabled administrator - i don't know how it happened. Now i am not able to make any changes to my computer.

I had administrator enabled via local security policy. After installing the programs, i disabled the administrator via cmd.exe "net user administrator /active:no". Now i want to install some additional programs and i cannot enable the administrator login because the uac settings do not allow me to turn the admin on. In the command prompt, it says "type administrator password and then click yes. " But when i type the password the "yes" button remains gray and i cannot click it, so it does not allow me to login as admin, so i'm stuck only able to login as a user, but not the admin. I know the admin password and have not forgotten it.

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?!

Cannot Understand Who The Administrator Is?

I never shut my pc down, i always leave it on. This pc i have had for 4 weeks. Tonight i went to make changes to audio recorder and selected troubleshoot audio recordings.

It then darkens the screen and tells me to type in administrator password and then click yes.
I thought i was admin? I thought when i switched off my pc and switched it back on again that that was the password i was being asked to enter and so i thought i knew it.

But when i try to do this troubleshoot it comes up no response, i have also tried just hitting enter but  both do nothing and just send me back to the original screen.

How do i find out who the admin is on my own pc?
When i login when powering up what is this password?
Where will get my admin password from?

Activating Administrator

I used the transfer utility to transfer my credentials from a windows business laptop to a brand new laptop with windows home premium on it. When i got to windows hp i found out that my account was a standard account instead of an administrators account - even through the account says administrator type when i drilled down it was set to standard and would not allow me to change it. Looking at some of the other threads i tried a number of things and this is what i found to work below for me.

Signed on to my account
Went to the windows/system32 directory and found cmd.exe
Highlighted the file name and right clicked
Chose run as administrator from the menu
Double clicked on the file
The command window opened
Typed in net user administrator /active:yes
Closed the command window
Rebooted

The administrator now show up on the welcome window i tried the windows key and r - which did not work. When i tried to type lusrmgr. Msc i got the message that this was not supported in home premium my question is was this because my transferred account was an administrator's account to begin with? Or was this fluke that i managed this - the administrators account when activated does not have a password on it and i'm assuming that i should create one - but i'm not sure what will do after the fact to windows utilities and the like. Anyone?

Administrator Without Authority

I am running windows 7 home premium and am generally very pleased with it however i have run into a problem this morning. I am the owner, administrator, and sole user of this computer. This morning i was trying to modify the hosts file but when i tried to save the modification i received the following error message:
 
C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts.txt
You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.
 
Well i contacted myself immediately but i could not help me. I am hoping that one of you kind people will be able to provide me with some guidance.

Cannot Download As Administrator

We received two brand new hp6241f pcs running windows 7 from future shop here in canada. I got home tonight from work and found my dad still sitting in front of the first, trying to get it set up. At that point he was trying to activate the 60-day ms office trial but every time he clicked the link to get a key he'd get a message saying he wasn't connected to the internet. I confirmed that he was; we can totally surf.

I found another way of getting the key but kept getting redirected to a bing page that said "we are unable to find [url]. "

I tried a few times, figured it was a bad link and decided to move on. I went to download windows live mail.

Same stupid thing. The download page would load, the download would be about to begin and the redirect would happen again.

I've tried downloading firefox and ccleaner - same problem.

I've browsed forum after forum and answer after answer. There's only one user and she's identified as administrator.

I played with security settings up the yin/yang. I do hi-speed internet technical support for a living so i can easily disable common stuff. I followed some instructions to make changes of the user controls but full control is already enabled.

I'm at my wits end and hating win7. There are too damn many security options, if you ask me. Too many to find, apparently, because nothing i've done is working.
