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?

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.

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?
