How to get administrator privileges in Windows 7

I use pc in my college and I Word able to install any software due to the lack of administrator privilege.
Please let me know if there is another way to install the software in such situations,
I tried the portable applications, but the app I want to install is not freeware & hence it is not portable.

Help, please...


Unless you set an Admin password, it should be empty, SO is your PC.

"I use pc in my college.

Or do you mean that you use a PC/s at your college, which is not your own, where you have a user account to connect you to the help?

If so, you can not install software on it and that's the way they are configured.

All software is installed by the system administrator.

See you soon.

    How to get a CD of windows vista?

    If you want to buy Vista, you'd have to try online at: Newegg, Amazon, etc.

    Or try your local computer repair shop.

    If you are referring to the recovery disks, or reinstall Vista:

    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

    Also ask them if it is possible to do the recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

  • Running forms of the PC client without administrator privileges on Windows 7

    As company policy is aimed at users have locked down PCs without administrator privileges on Windows 7, we met with a number of problems we couldn't solve completely.

    The only way we found to date that worked (sort of) was at the first mark the administrator user, connect to the Weblogic Server to run applications compiled for the first time and accept certificates and jar files downloaded and revoke admin rights after that.

    No one has found another way to make this work?

    andrewmy wrote:

    ... The IE options are turned on to allow the Java plugins but apparently administrator is required to download and accept them.

    This should not be the case.  Like you, I work in an environment where standard users are not granted administrative privileges to their workstations and we did not have this problem.  We did something different - that I am aware of the - client side to allow the download.  JAR files are stored in the Java Cache Directory which should be open to all users.  Could your administrators have changed the privileges to this directory?


  • How to recover administrator privileges?

    Original title: lost Admin rights!

    Minimator started programming & has tinkered with 'ways', now that I've lost admin rights cannot download anything or delete files! A way to get administrator rights?

    Who is minimator?

    You can probably fix your problem by using the system restore. Here's how it works:
    1. keep tapping F8 during the first phase of startup.
    2. select Repair from the menu.
    3. Select an administrator account, and then enter its password.
    4. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
    5. set Windows to a point before the "fiddling" was held.
    6. Once completed, plan in advance and create, test and document a spare, even admin account that you have a spare House key. Give the one and the only key to House a child seems a bit light.

    I want to put the voice of the Narrator on my computer Windows 8 Microsoft Sam, is it possible?

    Hello Mattaniahvanderford,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    In Windows XP and Windows 2000, you had the TTS voice called Microsoft SAM. In earlier versions, Microsoft Mary and Mike Microsoft were male and female voices in option respectively, which were available for download from the Microsoft Web site. But it will not work on versions of Windows this last.

    Windows Vista and Windows 7 introduces us to Microsoft Anna new replacement of text-to-speech voices. The Chinese versions of Windows 7 had Lili from Microsoft. Now in Windows 8 you have Microsoft David, Hazel Microsoft or Microsoft Zira as the default operating system voice.

    Sorry, you inform us will be able to help get Microsoft SAM on Windows 8. However, if you still want Microsoft SAM, so in this case you will need to use your search engine to find some third-party application or software that can provide you with that.

    Important: Using third-party software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the use of third-party software can be solved. Software using third party is at your own risk.

    For more details, you can refer to the page provided below.

    To use Narrator you can see the tutorial below.
