Giving a domain user rights to configure modems?

Q: Giving a domain user rights to configure modems?

hi,

Is it possible to give the domain users the option of adjusting the settings of Modems using telephon.cpl in Control Panel themselves? Currently if a normal users runs Telephone and Modem Settings in Control Panel then under Modems the buttons are greyed out. How can I as admin activate those buttons for them so they can call the modem properties and adjust them for their own needs?

thanx

Edit: edit: I have already checked the User/Group Policies using mmc but have not found any option to activate them.

Preferred Solution: Giving a domain user rights to configure modems?

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,
I couldn't find the solution for the following problem:
I have a software which reguires the user profile to have rights to change system time. Software is run as a non-admin user profile so software's installer should give the proper rights. Installer is run as admin. Can this be done and if it can, how it is done?

Thanks in advance,
Antti

A:Automatically giving rights to a user profile to change system time

Hi Antti,

i didn't get your question correctly.

What i understand is you don't want to give the access to the particular user. is that right?
For this, you can change the priorities for the user account.

Hi everyone,
I'm unable to configure WinRM on a domain computer. I have a simple domain with

1) Windows server 2012
2) A client running Windows 7

If I try to run WinRM on the local Administrator, everything works fine, but if I switch to a domain user, than problems occured.

For example, if i run winrm quickconfig in powershell as the domain Administrator, then I get:

WinRM already is set up to receive requests on this machine.
WSManFault
    Message = WinRM cannot process the request. The following error occured while using Negotiate authentication: An unknown security error occurred.
 Possible causes are:
  -The user name or password specified are invalid.
  -Kerberos is used when no authentication method and no user name are specified.
  -Kerberos accepts domain user names, but not local user names.
  -The Service Principal Name (SPN) for the remote computer name and port does not exist.
  -The client and remote computers are in different domains and there is no trust between the two domains.
 After checking for the above issues, try the following:
  -Check the Event Viewer for events related to authentication.
  -Change the authentication method; add the destination computer to the WinRM TrustedHosts configuration setting or use
 HTTPS transport.
 Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated.

Hello,
sorry for my bad english, its not my first language.
Current Problem:
Different Domain-Users using the same Program on a Windows 7 Pro Computer (Domain Registered). No User is loged in at the same time. No User has Local-Admin rights. Everything fine until a Update of the Program occoured.
We run the Update-Installer over one of the normal Domain-User Accounts, entered a Admin Account on the UAC prompt and continued the installation. After the Installation, another Domain-User logged in and now has the UAC Prompt everytime he wants to start
the program (Changes on the Harddrive). The other Users have no such experiance, it works like before the update. If i enter a Domain-Username and Passwort from other user that can use the program normaly, it works as intended, but it is run as the other user,
what is not intended of course.

Hi,
I have a situation where a standard domain user who is not supposed to have admin rights has admin rights in a local PC. I have checked the account permissions and it does not have admin rights. I have also checked the Tools>Computer Management ? Groups
> Administrators and confirmed that it does not have the user added to this group.
This computer officially has 2 admin accounts, one is the domain admin and one local admin. I am cracking my head trying to figure out how this user got admin privileges even though locally and in the AD this user does not have the rights assigned to them.
I have removed the user profile in this computer and have created a new profile but that did not seem to help.
Please advise if I have missed something here.
Thank you.

I am experiencing issues with my small domain setup. Windows Server 2012 R2 and windows 10 PRO domain attached PC's

Any users who are not a member of the Administrators group cannot login with their domain account (A device attached to the system is not functioning.) or access their file shares (invalid folder) even if they have been granted access to the file-shares.
However if I add them to the administrators group everything works fine with no issues.
I have not made any changes to group policy recently and have no idea what has changed to stop regular users from being able to do anything.

It is strange because there is nothing wrong with devices attached to the PC and the folders are definitely valid. It is all dependent on which account is trying to access.
Please let me know if you need further info.

On Windows XP, installing iTunes requires admin rights. However, it is not good to use an admin account for regular work. For the Palm Desktop, the workaround was to grant admin rights to the user account, install the application using the user-turn-admin account, then ungrant admin rights. Will this last step cause problems for iTunes, or does iTunes require admin rights for its regular operation (outside of being installed)?

I am trying to play a game called "A tale in the desert 3" but when you launch it, it modifies different files. Everytime I run it I have to right click it and choose "Run as administrator" which is getting to be kind of a pain, is there a way to give it rights so I can just double click it? If I just double click it, it will try to modify a file and then will give me an error saying that it was unable to modify it so I tried to set both files the game launcher, and the file it modifies to full access but that didn't solve my problem.

Im running Vista Home Prem. 64, Im trying to get two applications of mine to open with Admin rights when going through a shortcut. I'm going to the actual file within Program Files/Application/exe. and right clicking it to bring up the Properties.

I am the admin for the computer, it is just my home computer, built and installed by myself. Your help is greatly appreciated and I look forward to hearing a solution.

Thanks for your time

A:Giving applications Admin Rights

A couple questions:

Have you disabled UAC? If so, then it shouldn't matter, so I could see Vista greying it out.

Have you looked at other applications to see if it's an option?

Do you have multiple accounts and you're on one of your non-administrative accounts?

Hello everyone,

We are running into a somewhat peculiar issue that I have been unable to find any information about and I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.



Several of our Windows 7 laptops (We're working on moving to W10) have become unable to change the password for a domain account from the Change a Password screen after hitting CTRL ALT DEL. Usually when someone would select to change their password,
it would take them to the text boxes with the domain\username pre-populated, I'm sure you are familiar.

Recently, when following the same steps, an account selection screen comes up with the option to use a smart card or simply type in the username. While we are working on implementing smart cards, they are not yet in use and in fact should not even
show any options for them yet. After opting to type in a user account, rather than populating the username field with domain\username, the field remains blank with grey text saying "provider\user name" instead. If the user types in their domain\username
and attempts to change the password, they get a generic error stating it is unable to change the password.



Users are still able to use a co-workers machine to change their password from the same screen by substituting the username. Most of the affected machines are from users that work in the same team, even though those same users can change their passwords
elsewhere just fine. It appears to be isolated to specific ... Read more

Hello,
Currently we are in the middle of a migration project. We are migrating users from child domains to the root domain of one organization.
The user accounts are migrated with powershell using Move-ADObject cmdlet. This works as expected. The SIDHistory attribute is updated correctly.
Recently we received complaints from some *migrated* users - they lost their default/custom file associations. This happens only on Windows 8/Windows 8.1.
What happens:

the HASH is calculated based on user's SID. But after the migration the user has new SID and the HASH becomes invalid and we hit this:

I tried to google this and it seems neither is possible but I wanted to hear the truths from the horses mouth.

I have a Win 7 Pro x64 computer with 2 users who boths needs to be able (this really is a must) install software on the computer but they can't have access to each other's private folders (user folder). Basically I see 2 theoretical options:

a) make 2 standard user accounts and give these accounts the right to install software. Is this possible and if yes how?

b) make 2 admin user accounts and prevent them from accessing to each other's user folder. I can do this but not in a way that doesn't mess with windows (basically I would encrypt the file but then windows wouldn't be able to use the folder like it is built to use it and I'm pretty sure this would cause problems). Is there another way to do this which doesn't cause problems with windows?

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help.

A:Installing rights to standard user or prevent an admin user something

a) This may be possible in theory but it would not be easy. Don't go there.
b) All administrators are equal. Any restrictions you impose can be undone by another.
The only practical way to do what you want is to encrypt the users folders. Windows doesn't care about user folders so that is not an issue.

I’m new to this forum, am not a techie, don’t think I’m asking for help in doing anything illegal…so please let me know if anyone can help me. I stupidly followed someone’s advice to rename my work computer laptop in order to bypass admin rights, and now I can’t log on to laptop to set it back to how it was originally. My laptop was set up as a network computer that required my network login to gain access to Windows (XP Professional). So since I renamed my computer and removed myself from the domain, it will no longer allow me to log on to my laptop at all.

I tried to boot up in safe mode, (so that I could try to set it back to how it was) but it still comes up with the Windows login screen that won't accept my network login. Is there anyway that I can bypass this in order to put myself back onto the domain…without having to admit to my IT department what I did?

If your the domain administrator, make sure the existing domain group policy (designed for XP or Vista) is not being applied to your Win7 machine as its about the only thing can be reverting your permissions.

Howdy all

I am in a mixed NT 2k environment (with no active directory so no group policies) and we have several laptops that need to run this program that cannot be used with a regular users logon account. the user needs power user or administrative rights to run this software because each time it runs it creates a .ldb file (we believe) and a regular joe can't do that.

the only workaround so far is to use the "run as" command and run the program in the users setting with an administrators account or to move the users account to a higher group with more rights. we do not wish to put the user in the higher groups and can't give him the password to the admin accounts so they can run the program.

is there a way to permanately use the admin account to run this program with out having to type in the password each time? or to give the user just enough rights to run this particular program?

The laptops are win2k pro.

The above is a bit confusing. Is this computer joined to a work domain or is it not?

If this is a domain computer, the user will have to use the classic log on screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), not the Welcome Screen. If he wants to switch to logging in to the Local computer account and not the domain, he'll have to "Switch User" then log in with the format of Computername\User Name

I know you can lock down an AD account to log into a specific machine but can you lock down a machine to only accept certain user logins? We have some mission critical machines that only have the specific rights with certain ID's but the users keep insiting on logging onto them as their own ID thus making the app not work properly and the machine go whacky. I want to set it up to deny logins other than using the specified ID's they have been given already (and not their own user accounts).

Is there any way to do this other than limiting EVERY user account (since I only need this limit on like 2 PC's per site I have).

Thanks for any help. (yes I know about runas types of solutions I really would like to keep these PC's as clean as we can and not have other user profiles on them at all).

TIA.
 

A:Lockdown user login on a domain machine to a specific user.

So I would assume these computers are attached to the domain, so their domain logins allow them to login to the computer.

Couldn't you use a combination of the local policies
Deny logon locally
Logon Locally

Both of them allow you to add a user or group to those local policy. I would think that if you deny the everyone group in the domain then set the users who are allowed to login in the other policy, that might work. I am not sure though. I would have to test it.

As of today, in our domain environment consisting of Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 Enterprise machines, we are experiencing the "User Profile service failed the sign-in - User profile cannot be loaded" error message whenever a user tries to login.
This only affects users new to the particular machine. If they have signed on before and already have a cached account the computer logs them in with no issue. This is occurring on both Win8.1 and Win7 machines. We are an academic institution so this is becoming
a huge problem in our labs. Students generally use different computers so this is popping up very frequently. I have a solution for the issue. It appears that on the non-working machines that the "Default" user profile is corrupt. I have discovered
that if I find a machine, Win8.1 or Win7, doesn't matter, that is allowing first time users to logon I can copy the "Default" user profile and replace the corrupt one. I must first permanently delete the corrupt profile before copying over the new
one. I am doing this over the network by navigating the C:\users\ folder. Even this way is becoming cumbersome though as we have over 1000 computer in labs. I have googled and googled and I keep seeing the same answers offering various solutions, none which
are any more practical than my method. I cannot find information on a cause or a reason of why this would just crop up out of nowhere. I suspect maybe a Windows update but I cannot verify that yet. ... Read more

Dell Dimension 5150, WinXP Home SP2

Good morning, all.

I suppose the title of this post could be something like, "Why can't XP be more like Win98?"

But seriously: I have in front of me a File View of “My Computer“.
In Documents and Settings, it shows me that there are apparently four “accounts”: Administrator, All Users, Default User, and me - “k”.

In each one of these there is, in differing combinations, things like “My Documents”, “My Music”, “Favorites”….. And, in some there are what appear to be “administrative” privileges (Local Settings). The confusion this is causing while transferring documents and files from the old machine is getting up my nose! (This is a piecemeal exercise as the old PC is still working as the “office” - word processing, spreadsheets, etc.)

There is one owner, one user and one administrator of this PC - me.

Is there some way that I can reconfigure all this so that there is but one “account”, for example the “Administrator” or “All Users”, with just a simple boot-up without password, and get rid of everything else?

(I did try deleting all accounts but the Administrator Account, and locked myself out of the thing. A bit of messing around in Safe Mode with System Restore got me back in, but I don’t want to do that again!)

Regards,
kb-r

Hello, Xarc. I am not an expert, and I should not send my reply via e-mail because this forum is for everyone to read and learn from everyone. It's not for private correspondence.
Back to the matter in hand. You cannot change any user account to admin. WITHOUT entering the admin. password when prompted. Do you have the admin. password ? If you don't and assuming what you want to do is with full consent from the person who holds the admin.account, use the link below :Administrator Account

Dears,

Im currently given support to a small network remotely, I use teamviewer to connect to a computer in case when a problem occurs.

The computers are in a domein and have standard user right. Sometimes I need to install a software but I need to be logged in as administrator in order to install. Which rights do you recommend to set on the users in order to be able to install a software as restricted user without requiring to login as administrator, but just to type the administrator password.

Many thanks for your help.

Regards,
 

A:user rights

just right click the app > run as admin. Or in xp, right click > run as > choose your account.

I don't know much about granting certain user rights in XP but what I do know....is that NT was way much better at assigning user rights. I hope there is something I am missing tho.

I have set up a desktop for my kids, BUT you can only set them to either Administrator rights, or limited. I want them to be ble to install games if the want to....but as it was, I had to grant them admin rights just to install programs. Is there a simple way to grant that? I had TweakUI and that didn't help me...... How do you add or subtrack certain rights to a user, or can you?

Thanks!
 

A:XP & user rights!

Choose Start, Settings, Control Panel, and Administrative Tools,

In there is something called local security policy, you can customise to your hearts content.

Good Luck!!

I work for a local government institution. We have quite a few users who install unnecessary programs and crash their system. We are starting to implement Win2K for our "problem children." If we set them up as a Restricted Users, they cannot use the software we install for them (i.e., Netscape, Corel, Banner, etc.). How can we create a new User that cannot install programs, yet allow them to use the programs they need for their daily job?
