How to get back to the user account administrator privileges?

Original title: lost the privileges on the computer at home. How ca I get it back?

I am the only user on my home computer, using Windows 7 Professional. When you turn on the computer, always offered welcome my administrator screen and waited for a response and normal user accounts before continuing. Rarely need to log on as an administrator and have to go back to the computer just to press a button before it continued its long initialization has been frustrating. Want to remove the log on option user I did it via the Control Panel [don't know how, now!] so now I can turn it on and let it start in his own good time without further interaction from me, which is great.

What is not big, is that I lost all administrator privileges, then any time the area UAC appears asking if I want to continue with the program and I need to answer YES, it won't let me as the Yes box is grayed out.

The management of the computer control panel, I can get local users where I can see that my backup Administrator account is disabled. If I click on the box to reactivate the account, access is denied, so I can not turn on the account.

Help, please!  I would really think my administrator account to return once again, without having to turn off every time.

Thank you for your expertise in advance.


Here you go:

  1. Set your BIOS so that it uses the DVD drive as its primary boot device.
  2. Start the computer with your Windows 7 repair CD.
  3. Press a key when prompted to boot from the DVD.
  4. Select 'PC Repair' in the menu.
  5. Select 'Repair' when prompted.
  6. When you are prompted, select System Restore.
  7. Configure Windows to a point before you made the change.
  8. Plan ahead a little and create, test and document an alternative admin account, same as you have a spare emergency House key. This will save you a lot of trouble.

    I think that there is a little more for it, but here's a solution that seems to work. After the installation of Roboform 7.1.7, go to: and scroll down to a table listing the three browsers identifying the XPI file to load if it was not loaded automatically. Click the Firefox will ask you if you want to allow this should be installed. Let him. Finish installation, restart Firefox 4.0b10, and you'll see a Roboform 7.1.7 toolbar works. I did it on two computers, and everything seems to work.

So I did it, in a way of to return, my rights and my stuff back, but now it seems that I'm not admin, all I want to do requires an admin who don't have troubled me some time ago, I went to the local disk properties and made sure that I had all access on my user account , but no, something is still not back to normal.

    I really need help everyone, could help you?

    I want my account respected as an administrator again.

    [Moved from comments]

    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 this problem occurred.

    Install or reinstall OS X from scratch

    Make sure that you have backed up your files because the following procedure will remove all of the hard drive.

    HD recovery start:

    Restart the computer and after the buzzer, press on and hold down the COMMAND and R until the menu screen appears.

    Erase the drive:

    1. select in the main menu disk utility and click on the continue button.

    2. once the charges of THE select your boot volume (usually Macintosh HD) in the

    list on the left. Click on the Erase tab in the main window of THE.

    3. set the type of format Mac OS extended (journaled). If necessary, click

    Security and button all the option data from scratch in a single pass. Click

    the clear button and wait until the process is complete.

    4 leave FROM and return to the main menu.

    Reinstall OS X: Select reinstall OS X and click on the install button.

    Note : You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest to use Ethernet if possible

    because it is three times faster than wireless.

    This should install the version of Mac OS X that you had installed it.

  • How to get fullname of the user after login


    I'm developing a simple web panel with the vCloud API readonly information.

    I was able to get information about organizations, vApps, TDC and VMs, but something "simple" that to get the full name of the user logged in using the login process API vCloud is impossible for me.

    Please, can someone give me help on this?

    I use vCloud API SDK for PHP, but I'd appreciate any kind of information or instructions on how to get connected fullname of the user.

    Thanks in advance for you help.

    In order to be able to do this you will first need to connect to the organization with the user "administrator of the Organization" and record the information about users somewhere - in a database, or some kind of in-memory cache. You can't get much information on a normal user to user.

    Users to get information, to get the 'admin' of an organization representation.

    When you make the request in the response above, you will find a section

    After that, you do a GET request for each user and read the information. Save it somewhere and use it later.

  • How to get back in the car Fusion 3 TB to the original scores?

    I just had my Fusion 3 TB 2012 end iMac drive replaced under warranty and have encountered a problem after trying to create a 2 TB Bootcamp partition.  For some reason, I ran into problems installing Win 10 after having successfully created the partition, so I decided to use the Bootcamp assistant to delete the Bootcamp partition, but it threw an error message before the end!  That left me with a disc Mac HD 1 TB and 2 TB of space utility disk refuses to acknowledge, and I don't see a way to extend the Mac HD partition to fill this space?  Is there a simple way to restore the drive to its original state or what I need to use commercial partitioning software to do this?

    Apple did not provide an easy way to recover from this condition. Please read this message before doing anything. If you don't feel confident that you can follow the instructions, ask someone more experienced to help you. One option is to take an appointment 'Genius' on an Apple Store.

    This procedure applies only to an iMac or a Mac mini with a drive installed in the smelter. If one of the internal drives (SSD and HDD) has been replaced by a hot spare, ask for other instructions.

    You must read these instructions while no web browser is running, so either print them or load them onto another device before you start.

    1. all the data on the internal disks will be deleted, including Boot Camp data, which are not saved by Time Machine. You need at least two complete and independent backups. A backup is not enough to be sure. There are ways to back up a computer that is not fully functional. Ask if you need advice.

    2. you will need to start one recovery system other than the one on the internal hard drive (if he has one.) There are several ways to do so.

    a. If you have a backup time of the Machine (not a network backup), or a compatible Mac OS X installation on an external drive, then you should be able to start it by holding down press option key to start ringing. Select the external hard drive in the row of icons that is displayed. I mean by "compatible", an installation running on the machine. A version of Mac OS X that is older than the machine is not compatible.

    b. If you used Recovery Disk Wizard (or can use it now) to prepare a system recovery on a USB flash drive, you can start that by pressing the C button on the ring. No icons will appear. Startup will be much slower than usual.

    c. start the Internet recovery mode by pressing the key combination command-option-R to start ringing. Release the keys when you see a spinning globe. Select a language, if you are prompted.

    Note: You need an Ethernet or Wi - Fi connection to Internet to use the features of recovery network. It will not work with modems USB or PPPoE, proxy servers or networks that require a certificate for authentication.

    3. disconnect all other external storage devices.

    4. in the OS X Utilities screen, select get online help. Safari will launch. While in recovery, you will have no access to your bookmarks or history, but you won't need them. Load this web page.

    5. triple - click anywhere in the line below to select this option:

    diskutil cs deleteLVG `diskutil cs list | awk 'NR==3{print $NF}'`

    Copy the selected text in the Clipboard by pressing Control-C key combination.

    Quit Safari. You go back to the OS X Utilities screen.

    6. in the menu bar, select

    Utilities ▹ Terminal

    Launch the Terminal application. Paste in the Terminal window by pressing the command-V key combination. Wait for a new line ending with a number sign (#) to appear. If nothing happens, press the return key.

    Quit the Terminal must be returned to the main screen.

    What happens then depends on what version of recovery that you are running.

    ☞ If the machine came with OS X 10.10 ("Yosemite"), 10.9 ("Swat") or 10.8 ("Mountain Lion"), and you're in the recovery of the Internet, please take step 7A and proceed to step 7B.

    ☞ otherwise, go to step 7A and 7B step.

    If you are unsure which version of Mac OS X, the machine came with, search for it on this page.

    After taking these steps apply, you must have a reader of empty Fusion named 'Macintosh HD' on which you can perform step 8a or 8b step.

    7. repair of the Fusion drive (see "Troubleshooting" on the linked page.) Quit disk utility.

    7. Enter the command below as in steps 4-6:

    N=Macintosh\ HD; for d in /dev/disk?; do o=`diskutil info $d`; [[ ! "$SSD" ]] && grep -lqw 'APPLE SSD' <<< "$o" && SSD=$d; [[ ! "$HDD" ]] && grep -lqw 'APPLE HDD' <<< "$o" && HDD=$d; [[ "$SSD" && "$HDD" ]] && break; done; diskutil cs create "$N" $SSD $HDD && diskutil cs createLV "$N" jhfs+ "$N" 100%

    It is a very long line, and you won't see it on the web page. Be sure to select the entire line, not just the part that you can see.

    Leaving the Terminal.

    8. If you have a Time Machine backup, connect the device to backup and restore your data. If you have saved to a network like a time Capsule device, it must be connected automatically.

    8B. If you do not have a Time Machine backup, or if you can not restore from Time Machine backup that you do not have, install OS x Restore data later in The Migration Wizard.

    In the Internet recovery mode, you install the original version of Mac OS X comes with the machine. If you have upgraded the operating system on the App Store, you will need to do it again.
