Windows 8 without administrator privileges

I did a stupid thing (I think)

I wanted to get rid of the connection whenever I launched windows 8
I followed the instructions and the PC started very well without connection, unfortunately the I used because the connection does not account/user administrator privileges, at least I think that's what happened.
The result is that I can now none liked install/uninstall/change programs, items or laptop settings. Whenever I'm trying to reset or alter anything UAC wants the "Yes" box ticking, but it is grayed (because I don't have administrator privileges)
Tried to update it's just the same thing!
I liked windows 8, but I quickly fell out of love with her!

Thanks for the reply

1. Yes, I disabled the password function to connect to the account
2 Internet instructions
3. Yes, the problem occurred after you follow the instructions.
4. no change was possible (now resolved)
5 a on windows 8
a. does not work
c. says no available restore points
I have now solved this problem
1. start immediately after the splash screen and before windows logo press SHIFT - F8 (this may take a number of attempts to bring up the list of recovery)
2. Select option 4, Safe Mode, allow launch safe mode
3. I now had administrator privileges
4. right click Select corner low LH run, type netplwiz (according to the instructions of the internet above)
5. change all users (except comments) administrator - activate
6. restart.
PC now, back to need to connect whenever it starts, but I now have total control.

    Thank you. Will there be a version that supports Windows 7 in the future?

    A version of LabVIEW? They are a number of versions before 7.

    There were already 8.x, 2009, and now they're on 2010.

    I don't know if Windows 7 is 'officially' supported, but it should work well with newer versions of LabVIEW

  • 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?

    ... 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?

  • Beta 5 of Firefox does not check the updates from an account without administrator privileges and won't ask administrator privileges apply downloaded update

    I can't get Firefox Beta 5 to check the updates using an account without administrator privileges. Beta version of Firefox 5 downloaded an update (from 2 Beta Beta 3), and now, there's a button apply update in the Firefox window that won't hurt, even though the update is properly applied from another account with administrator privileges.

    I use Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. In general, I use Firefox for an account without administrator privileges and provide the only administrator credentials when you are prompted to install or remove software.

    Delete the files in the folder updates\0 and updates.

    You may need to remove active - update.xml and updates.xml so, if it is present.

    C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Mozilla Firefox\updates

  • How do I allow users without administrator privileges install fonts?

    I need allow users to install fonts without administrator privileges.  Googling landed a few eccentric tools, but this isn't an option... I can change the entries in registry, file & directory permissions, use Windows commands in batch scripts, etc. but I can not use any third-party downloads.  In addition, just save them to the police for the session cache is not enough... they should be able to install fonts in C:\Windows\Fonts directory.  It's OK, if they can not uninstall a font, allowing that could remove a font that Windows requires.

  • I'm trying to install a HP printer driver, but get a massage of error that remind me that I can not install the__driver without administrator privileges.

    I am registered as an administrator and is the only user of this laptop. I did not have a password. I installed a few programs without having this problem.

    This is the error message:

    Action required: click Cancel to exit this software installation. Sign out and then sign in as a user with administrator privileges. (Contact your system administrator for more information.)

    I tried to open a session as a different user, but it doesn't help either.
    Can anyone help please. Thank you. I'm not a computer expert.

  • Problems with the Touchpad drivers and printer without administrative privileges.

    Original title: my drivers are slowly disintigrating.

    Hi, I have a Toshiba running Windows Vista.  Lately, the pilots were wrong.  My mouse driver is "undetectable", so I can't turn off the option to click the touchpad, and my printer driver not working or the other.  I tried to reinstall my printer software, and (even though I have administrator privileges on my login account), the driver will not be installed, indicating that it must be done by an administrator.  I have checked the computer of viruses and have found none.  What should I do to fix this?

    Hi KateGreen,

    1. What is the number of brand and model of your printer?

    You can try to uninstall the touchpad drivers and try to install the driver using administrator privileges.

    Step 1:

    Uninstall and reinstall touchpad drivers.

    a. Click Start, point to settings and then click Control Panel.

    b. double-click system click on hardware and then click Device Manager.

    c. click on the PLUS SIGN to expand unit

    d. click twice on the device driver.

    e. tab driver, click on uninstall

    f. download the latest drivers from site Web from Toshiba.

    g. right-click on the installation files and select run as administrator to install the drivers.

    Step 2:

    You can also uninstall the drivers for the printer and install the driver with administrator privileges.

  • Smartphones from blackBerry Desktop Manager does not recognize the device without administrator privileges

    Hello. My "BOLD" BB works fine at home with 4.6 DM. However, at work DM detects that the device is plugged when I get with administrative privileges (Windows XP Pro, SP2). When I am denied the additional privileges DM cannot detect the BB.

    DM has been intalled under administrator privileges, but I'm not allowed with this privilege permanently.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    It seems that when DM has been installed, it has not been installed "for all users".  Maybe uninstall and when it is reinstalled, make sure that the option "for all users" is checked (insteald "only for this user").

  • How to stop the exploitation of windows 8 pro administrator privileges File Explorer

    Security of Norton had a problem activating.  I called Norton.  The tech support agent took control of my computer.  Norton was uninstalled and reinstalled.  The task has been completed as an administrator.  Norton was asked to enter a PIN activate.  Asked me to call Qwest to get the PIN.  Norton comes as a package with CenturyLink DSL.  The tech support agent uninstalled both Qwest and Norton to reinstall both at the same time.  My computer was working fine.  The next morning at startup, I got a message that said: File Explorer is running for administrator privileges.  Restart the Explorer of files normally and try again.  I can't find how to do this.

    I had exactly the same problem, and it's super easy.

    1. press Ctrl + SHIFT + ESC. This opens the Task Manager.

    2. scroll and click on Windows Explorer.

    3. click on restart.

    That's all there is to it!

  • Without administrator privileges on Windows 7


    I just bought a new computer laptop Toshiba today and put in place. Everything seemed fine, until I tried to remove that stupid Office which has been pre-installed by Toshiba shortcuts. Then User Account Control took over and said I need to be logged in as an administrator to do. He said that I have to type a password, then click on 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 thing happens when I tried to install Adobe Flash Player. I also tried to change my account (which is marked as a "Standard account" in an administrator one, but the same message occurs.) It's very frustrating, what good is a computer if I can't remove or install the programs I want to use?

    There is a basic simple solution, just restart you're system... as usual, press F8, it brings you to the option screen, startup
    Choose the safe MODE option, in seconds it automatically takes you on two users login screen...
    your account and the built-in Administrator account is here, no password for this administrator account... Just click on it and now you can access - settings - user accounts - page, simply change your accont type from STANDARD user to administrator... is she...
    Restart your PC... Enjoy
