I installed software/didn't make it 'admin'/How make it

Q: I installed software/didn't make it 'admin'/How make it

I installed some software and didn't make it, 'admin', so now every time I start it, it asks for permission to allow it to modify W8.1

My question; Is there a way to change it now, after it's already installed?

Preferred Solution: I installed software/didn't make it 'admin'/How make it

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
We have guests laptops at school for everyone but they keep making changes on the computer.
How can i make Windows to ask for admin password when trying to make changes in the computer and when trying to run the installer?
Google does not give me right results.

A:Make Windows ask for admin password when trying to make changes

I don't think you can stop users from making all changes. However if the account that they are using is a standard user account then it will ask for a administrator password when ever the UAC prompt comes up for system changes and installs.

Maybe you could take a drive image of the computer when it is in the state that you want it, then restore it when needed

How to make a software appear like it has never been installed on the pc before? I mean i have a program called Fraps 2.5.3 I used to have version 2.5.1 and it worked perfect, 2.5.3 gives me trouble. I want to switch back but the software wont allow it because it the newer version was installed.
I want to delete the software like its never been installed.. How can I do that?

Many Thanx.

A:How to make a software appear like it has never been installed on the pc before?

you more or less will need to completely uninstall the newer version, and then reboot, and try reinstalling the old one.

if this doesn't work, you may need to edit your registry.

i suggest before you touch your registry, you want and see if anyone else can help shed light on this.

Unfortunately when downloading a private server for a game apparently multiple parts of it were infected with Ramnit, AVG to my knowledge blocked everything and put it all in quarantine, but after reading about it I need to be sure that I don't have to reformat and reinstall completely, as was suggested by many of the articles regarding it. I know it's a pretty old virus at this point and less of a threat, but better safe than sorry.
 
Edit: It's probably worth mentioning the files were contained inside a RAR, which I extracted, and after extracting AVG flagged the executable files, one DLL, and another RAR that I didn't extract as the virus. I didn't run anything after extracting, only scanned the folder with MBAM and I think AVG as well, I can't remember, then rebooted, I deleted the RAR prior to reboot, but was unable to delete the extracted folder until after rebooting, but I moved it to recyle bin and deleted it as soon as I was able. The RAR I did extract contained no autorun to my knowledge, at least I'm hoping it didn't.
 
Thanks in advance for your time.

One of my users wants to use a different Office Assistant in MS Word. Pain in the *** I say, but it's a simple change so I go to make it.
She can't change it logged on as herself due to access restrictions. I try to map the drive as the admin but can't due to conflicting credentials or something of that nature. Then I log on as admin and make the change, but of course the change isn't propagated into the users account. And this brings me to my point. I'm new to administrating on a corporate level so bear with me...

We have our users locked down, and that won't change. So, when one of them wants a change to their system that requires admin rights, how do I do it and make sure the change happens to the user's account as well. Is there some way I can log on as admin in their account? With the above example what's the solution?

Thanks.

Right click the executable and check run as admin. You cant "exempt" one application, but you can elevate one.

If I add a second hard drive temporarily as a "slave" and use Ghost to clone the master to the slave, am I correct in assuming the following:

if I have problems with the original hard drive, I could reformat the drive add the "ghosted" drive as a slave and with Ghost transfer the "cloned" info to the original HD?

if I had imaged instead of cloned I could do the same as above?

Previously when I was using Windows 7, the system restore points were created automatically whenever I installed a new SW or made other similar system change. But it seems not the case in Win 8 any more.

W-8/8.1 Does Not have a built-in tool that is really functional for what you want to accomplish. I suggest you check out the Free Version of Macrium Reflect. Macrium has recently released V-6. Macrium also has a paid version which contains some additional features but it is a little pricey unless you can get a discount. Macrium is widely used with excellent reviews. There are other solutions both Free and Paid but but Macrium ranks with the very best.

Is something wrong here?

Nope, just the way UAC works. Its actually a decent thing to have as it will tell you when anything is wanting to make changes to certain parts of your machine. (If you ever used win patrol (the Scotty Dog ) with xp its very close to that) If its something YOU are trying to do, agree to let it do its thing. If you're downloading something and something different wants to run, might be a good idea to say no.

Having said what a good thing it can be........ I hate those pop ups always asking permission to do what I already TOLD it to do, so I turned mine off. That is NOT recommended by the way.

Follow up question. Is there a way to launch a new command prompt window via a shortcut which would open command prompt in a prespecified directory? Say.. I double click a program shortcut and command prompt opens in `E:\Ruby200\bin`

Follow Follow up question. Any idea how to open up more than one command prompt window in windows 8?
 

A:Make installed command prompt commands available anywhere?

You need to edit the PATH environmental variable. Add the folder paths of where your executables are and then they will be available from any directory you are in.

-help-

i just bought some memory to add to my computer. i installed it in the remaining slot and it fit fine and is seated fine. i didn't have problems getting it to fit or anything, all the pins line up, etc.

i know i have the right kind of memory too.

my issue is i don't know how to make the computer recognize the memory now that it's on the mobo.

i'm running windows 2000. there was absolutely nothing useful about this in my user's manual.

thanks for any help! this is most frustrating.

Hi.
I have two hdds (500gb 7200rpm) in my laptop and have 260gb of data on the second one. I wanted to create a partition for games at the beggining of the 2nd drive (the left side) as i heard it increased performance to put games in anoher drive and at the beggining of the drive.

My question is:
Will it make difference to make a partition at the beginning or at the end of this drive when it comes to gaming performance?
Will option three help me with this?

My cousin showed me one game in the same drive installed in the 1st of four partitions of a 500gb 7200rpm (the same i have) performing with 3-5 fps more than that game installed in the 4th partition of that same drive....

Any thoughts?

I dont know... any thoughts?, or maybe just a bug in the version installed in the 4th partition?

A:Will it make difference to make partition at beginning or end of HDD?

The only appreciable speed difference with OS drives is to upgrade to an SSD large enough to install OS and programs on, link to data on secondary HD via libraries.

Ghost, let me make sure before I make things worse.

If I add a second hard drive temporarily as a "slave" and use Ghost to clone the master to the slave, am I correct in assuming the following:

if I have problems with the original hard drive, I could reformat the drive add the "ghosted" drive as a slave and with Ghost transfer the "cloned" info to the original HD?

if I had imaged instead of cloned I could do the same as above?

If my assumptions are not correct or if there is a better way what should I do?

P.S. I do not want to leave the slave drive in the machine.

I guess the bottom line is what is the easiest way to get info back on the original hard drive using ghost on a Windows 98 machine with a floppy and CD-ROM?
 

A:Ghost, let me make sure before I make things worse.

i have a dedicated partition on my machine for drive image files, which are essentially just the same as norton ghost files.

everytime I make some major changes I give it a bit of time to see if everything is fine, then I update the images. I usually keep the image before that as well, so that if something emerges later I can go back to that.

I've seen a single update from windowsupdate.microsoft.com make my machine unbootable; i've seen a single updated driver trash the whole installation.

what you are doing is wise.

A:I can make my hard drive make noise on its own!

How big (MB) are the pictures you are zooming into? How much memory do you have? How big is your pagefile? Do your drives need defragging?

Ok I've only been a member for a short time and like this site. Lots of info.

What I want to do is make a Win 7 ISO file from my DVD install disk. Which is a retail upgrade version.
Then I want to change the install routine to make that ISO a universal install ISO.
Then I want to make a USB drive that is bootable and has the universal Win 7 install on it.

I have browsed through some of the tutorials and find some info but what I can't seem to find is how do I make a ISO file on my hard drive from my Win 7 DVD.
So please point me in the right direction.

Thanks.

A:Make ISO from DVD/Change to univeral install make USB

Hello Please be patient I know enough about computers but not the terms or anything. I had vista at first then got a virus long story short my uncle removed everything then put XP back on. I dont really understand why its important for a drive to be a certain letter my hard drive H the removeanle disk is C Im working from home and was told I need my internet explorer and certain things on my C drive. First off what is the difference and is this possible Ive been up for hours looking but I am not sure and cant get a hold of my uncle. Please let me know what needs to be done. Thank you all in advance.

A:How to make my to make my C which says removeable disk to my H drive?

It's easy to change the removable drive's drive letter name.

Start>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Disk Managment

Right-click the removable drive's graph and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths" and change the letter.

Do not change the drive letter of your boot drive. If you do, none of your programs will work, your computer may not even boot, and you'll be reinstalling XP all over again.

The time to deal with the boot drive not being C: was before/during the installation. Now it's too late, unless you want to reinstall. It's inconvenient and annoying, but almost everything will work just fine. I've read about some programs not working, but have never seen it first-hand. It's possible it never happens, and the people that are saying this are just repeating some kind of "urban myth".

If you HAVE to change the boot drive, you'll need to reinstall XP.

my hp 6500 officejet is sending out real small type [letters]and numbers. My glasses are strong enough to read what my printer is putting out help needed as usuall thanks for anything. bob s i have the page site type ;increased to 150% but its not printing that size type

A:Can anyone tell me how to make too make printer letters bigger

If you are trying to print out something like webpage content, you can change the font size in Print Preview by changing to 150% or whatever and then select the number of pages to view.

Experiment with the sizes up from Shrink to fit then change the number of pages you want to view it in and you will see what the text output will look like in the varying number of pages and then you can select how many pages for what will suit your eyes.

If you leave the number of pages at 1 then it will probably revert to Shrink to fit and so print out in the smaller font size.

Once you are happy with how you think it will print, then click on the printer icon in the top left of the menu bar.

If you are printing a doc from a word processing program, then set the font size and type prior to creating the document within the program, otherwise you will need to highlight all of the text first before you can change to how you want it, and changing those settings after you've created the doc may not stick.
