Preferred Solution: Elevated Command

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.)

A: Elevated Command

Please post the wordpad text in your topic.  I will not download anything to my computer unless I know exactly what it contains.
 
I want to go over how I access the Elevated Command Prompt in Windows 7 so I know we are on the same page.
 
Click on the start orb , then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
cmd will appear above the search box, right click on it and select Run as administrator.
 
You should see an image similar to the one below.
 

 
Type in the command, then press Enter.

This is a question on file and folder location.

The program being used creates a file in a directory.

From my use of Win 7 I can only navigate to the file in elevated command mode in the DOS box.

Is there a way to permanently reveal all folders to the Win 7 interface?

Part of the directory tree reads as follows:

c:\users\all users\my directory\another directory\ .file name

In Win 7, all users and the rest cannot be retrieved with search.

The goal is to make a shortcut to the .file name directory

The folder "All Users" is a hidden protected operating system file/folder.

This probably is not new to many, but I find it useful.

There are times I want an elevated command prompt. I usually type in "cmd", right click on it and run as administrator. If you need an elevated command prompt now and then, simply create a shortcut to "cmd". Right click on the shortcut, left click on properties. Click the shortcut tab and select "advanced". Finally, you can select "run as administrator".

Like I said, just something I didn't think about before, but it's handy to have.

Not sure if this is the proper forum for my question, but here it goes.

I'm using a SSH server to remotely access my notebook from work. It works well for SFTP and remote command line access using a dedicated, non-admin, user account.

Problem is when I want to run something that requires admin permission under that connection. The server runs cmd.exe under the context of a non-admin user I've created for it, so I'm limited in what I can do. Question is, how can I "elevate" that remote command prompt to execute admin-only programs and commands? UAC of course will not help under that conditions.

Thanks!

before you enter the command you can use the runas command first. You can also save the credentials so you dont have to enter them in every time.

I've set up a Virtual Router as in this page, but what it doesn't tell you is that you need to re-run the elevated command netsh wlan start hostednetwork every time the computer boots or comes out of standby.

Is there a way to run an elevated command via a batch file?

Later ... I've just found a similar tutorial here on W7F, and this mentions running batch files as administrator. However, I want to set this up for a novice user to use.

I can think of one way---but I recommend disabling standby functionality on this machine. Since it will essentially be your wireless router, you're going to want it running most of the time.

1. Start > Run

3. Under Computer Configuration, select Windows Settings.
4. Click on Scripts, and then Startup Scripts.
5. From here you can add your batch file, and it will run under the SYSTEM account when the computer boots up, and should be good to go.

Needed to launch an elevated command prompt and now, explorer crashes when I do so.

What I've already done:
1) Run sfc /scdannow both from inside Win7 and from DVD. Finds files it can't fix. Appear to be due to (1) login screen customization, and (2) Vista basic custom there. But -- these have been true from when I first installed Win7 and have only run into this problem recently.
2) Read the thread on diagnosing Explorer crashes, applied the registry fix, generated the dump file. So, I can upload that here.
3) Do regular full-partition images, so went back three months, restoring one at time -- problem remains with the oldest restore I have -- December of last year.
4) Restored latest backup (2/25/11), ran startup repair (from DVD) three times. Rebooted Win7, tried elevated command prompt -- still crashes Explorer.

So, apart from a complete clean-install (which I am dreading because of all the pain I went through scrounging drivers for this XP-era Tablet PC), is there anything else I can do?

A:Crash trying to launch elevated command prompt

1 - start scrounging drivers "just in case". Save them to a flash drive or DVD

2 - upload the dump file. If it's too big to upload, upload it to a free file-hosting service and post the link here.

3 - check the CBS.log file (C:\Windows\logs\CBS\CBS.log) for the missing/corrupt files. Here's a KB article on it for Vista (Win7 should be similar): How to analyze the log file entries that the Microsoft Windows Resource Checker (SFC.exe) program generates in Windows Vista

@ AceInfinity & anyone who wishes to respond:

Hello. Nice to meet you. I have a question to ask you or anyone that would like to help me...

After seeing your example above, it got me thinking... ...I would like to add to my context menu an elevated command prompt (with administrator privileges) in the same or similar coding fashion (not binary code) as in this example below. The key is that it has to be "elevated" with Administrator privileges, not just a normal command prompt to open. I am not sure how to write a working script since it "MAY" (probably is) quite different than the coding pattern in my example here after including the 'elevated' coding component part to it:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Elevated Command Prompt]

@="control appwiz.cpl"

Please correct by adding and or deleting or modifying the script above so the code that would demonstrate a working "elevated" command prompt script to open in a window.

I would also like to add the command prompt icon to my context menu too. I am very sure that it would look something like this (pretty sure if the registry key information is correct though, probably it is not since I am looking for the script to be 'elevated' as I have already stated):

I have used the @="cmd.exe /s /k pushd \"%V\"" type of Registry mod to obtain a context menu "Open elevated command window here" menu item, such as in the "Open elevated command window here" thread ( Open elevated command window here ).

However, the admin cmd window, even though it says "Administrator:" in the title bar, will not seem to work with the REG command (e.g., "REG SAVE [...]", etc.). If I even just type "reg /?" on the cmd line, it just jumps to the next (new) cmd line prompt, without any apparent action. (And, DISKPART will work here, even though REG doesn't.)

[The REG command works fine when I open a pinned cmd.exe link with Admin privileges.]

So,

1. Has anyone else noticed this?

2. And, if I'm not the only user in the universe to have this "feature", does anyone know of a workaround?

Thanks.

Hello Fred, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The REG /? command works for me using this when I right clicked on C:\Users and Open elevated command window here.
Do you have your UAC notification settings set to at least the default or top level? Normally when you use "Open elevated command window here", you will get a UAC prompt to approve before the elevated CMD window opens. If you do not get a UAC prompt, then this may be why you are having this issue.

I have a file to clear the print spooler when it has an error. I based this file on Brinks tutorial. Thanks Brink. I placed this file in C:\windows\system32 folder so all users would have access. The file must be run in a elevated cmd window. I then created a shortcut to the file and put the shortcut in each users Maintenance folder so they could clear the print Q when needed. In each shortcut I put a check in ADVANCED.......RUN AS ADMIN so the elevated command would be uised when clearing the print Q.
When the shortcut is used to clear the print Q it works fine in the ADMIN user account, all the ADMIN has to do is answer "YES" to the UAC. But the standard users must input the ADMIN PW at the UAC. Obviously, I don't want them to have the PW.
Is there a way for me hard code the PW into either of the files, the batch file or the shortcut, so that the standard user doesn't have to insert the ADMIN PW?

Is there any programmatic way within a BATch file of determining whether it has been started from an elevated command prompt (run as Administrator) or a normal command prompt?

I note the difference between the Current Directory at start of the BATch file, but wonder if there is a better way.

When in elevated mode I don't get a UAC prompt when using DISKPART.
The UAC prompt only happens when running it in a normal command prompt window.

Are you aware of any command which simultaneously would
give a different errorlevel when executed in an elevated command prompt than in a normal command prompt, and
not produce a UAC prompt in normal mode?
If this is the case, unless I can find something to distinguish between elevated command prompts and normal command prompts, then I will have to try the %cd% variable at the start of BATch files, to see whether it is consistent even across user modifications of the command prompt shortcut's Target Directory...

A:programmatic way with BAT file determining if elevated command prompt

I can answer my own question, as below

Code:

:: +----------+
:: I Elevated I Test whether this BATch file / Command Prompt
:: +----------+ in running in Elevated mode or Normal mode

setlocal

:: method (applicable to Windows 7, and maybe Vista)
:: try to write a zero-byte file to a system directory
:: if successful, we are in Elevated mode and delete the file
:: if unsuccessful, avoid the "Access is denied" message

:: arbitrary choice of system directory and filename
set tst="%windir%\$del_me$"

:: the first brackets are required to avoid getting the message,
:: even though 2 is redirected to nul. no, I don't know why.
(type nul>%tst%) 2>nul && (del %tst% & set elev=t) || (set elev=)

The user is an Administrator on the PC. Is there a way to modify the privileges to this complete this task?

Note: the user can connect to the vpn but cannot connect to the internet simultaneously since the modifying the routing table is noe allowed.
Thanks
Tim

Please help. My computer is running extremely slow and it is almost brand new. I have scanned for viruses using Spybot and Spyware Doctor. Nothing unusual pops up. However, when I look at the CPU usage in the Task manager it will go from 5% upwards of 100% and change by the second. Since the CPU usage is so high I imagine this is why my computer will stall or be very slow opening up programs or executing any functions. I had help once where I used HiJack This and someone showed me what to delete to clean my computer. Can someone walk me through this? Or ss there any freeware available to help with this problem or does anyone have any suggestions. I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 which is using Windows XP operating system. Thank you very much in advance.
 

A:elevated CPU usage

Hi jmontcri,

Check what programs are running (cntr-alt-del) will
bring up the task manager. Check "applications".

You should also check completely for spyware and
virii.

And your virtual memory is probably "thrashing", constantly
re-sizing. You should set it to what would be a "static"
size.

Right click on My Computer. Hit "Properties". In the upper right
you will see "Advanced", then hit "settings", under "virtual
memory". Go to "Advanced". You can choose which drive
to use and you can re-set it manually. Hit "change"

If you have lots of RAM, set it for 400 Meg low, 400 meg
high. Hit set, apply and go out. You will need to reboot.
This should improve speed significantly.

Hey. I have downloaded a game on steam called "Dragon Nest". When I start the game up, a UAC window pops up and tells me that I need administrator privileges. No problem. This is my laptop so I am the admin. The problem is that I don't want this program to require elevated privileges and I am looking for a way to change that. Thanks.

A:Elevated Programs

If it wasn't a Steam game, I'd say try to just set the shortcut to run as admin, which might work anyway.

But since it is Steam, probably best to leave it alone and be glad it's all working for ya as is. One minor thing can break stuff with Steam.

hi

im looking to create a shortcut to release and renew my ip. address all with one click. (using a rainmeter skin to fire it off)

but the problem im having is when the batch file is executed (using rainmeter) vista isnt allowing me as the relase ip etc commands require elevated privilages rather than a standard cmd.

what i would like to know is there a way round this? to bypass vista uac control and run a cmd with elevated privilages to the end that the elevated cmd releases my ip then renews it. all with one click. ?

many thanks to anyone that can assist me on this.

Hello- I started out just thinking I had Scorpion Saver on the computer and started a thread here.... http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/616295/scorpion-saver/page-2#entry4014917
 
After getting some assistance from Broni- he advised me that "There are some signs of ZeroAccess rootkit so you'll need elevated help."  And that I needed to follow this guide : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/
As he advised I started at step six on the guide posted above.
 
My computer is running rather slow.  I need my computer for work as I am working from home for Uhaul.   Whatever is going on is interfering with the VPN connection I have to have for work. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

When I am logged into a "standard" account, and choose to run a program as an "administrator" with the "run as" choice. Does it leave me running at an administrator level until I relog in or does it just run that program at that elevated privelage.
Thanks, Scott

A:[SOLVED] elevated privelages

Using the "run as administrator" option only runs the specified program as administrator. It does not change how you are logged in but only effects that one program. But note that by default programs inherit the rights of the parent process. If that one program you run as administrator opens others they will also have administrator rights that continue as long as they are running.

The purpose of the "run as administrator" option is to allow you to run an application with elevated privileges without the need of closing all open applications, logging out, then logging as an administrator.

If you like, either tutorial below can help you to create a shortcut that will allow the standard user to run the elevated program without being prompted by UAC to enter an administrator's password.

A:infected with ZeroAccess - need elevated help

Hello and welcome.  Please follow these guidelines while we work on your PC:
Malware removal is a sometimes lengthy and tedious process. Please stick with the thread until I’ve given you the “All clear.”  Absence of symptoms does not mean your machine is clean! 
Please do not run any scans or install/uninstall any applications without being directed to do so.
Please note that the forum is very busy and if I don't hear from you within five days this thread will be closed.
  Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatibale with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

This is going to sound like a question from the Twilight Zone.

My comp was starting to run hot ( 45 - 55C under normal conditions.).

I was about to open case and do a thorough cleaning, but first cleaned the keyboard thoroughly.

I have been using the comp for over an hour and it now doesn't go over 35C!

I know it has to be a coincidence, Right??!!

That's one of the weirder problems that I've seen, but yeah, I would chalk that up to coincidence.

The last three days upon booting up my pc I get a windows box with
"Run a Legacy CPL Elevated"-allow or not allow. Since I have no idea what this message means I have chosen not to allow. I'm hoping you fabulous techs can enlighten me as to the meaning of this particular message.

Upon clicking details this is what comes up:

"C:\Windows\System32\RunLegacyCPLElevated.exe"
Shell32.dll,Control_RunDL
"Stacgui.cpl"
Page=portmap

Remember, I'm not a tech person so any explanation needs to be as non tech as possible. Thanks!
 

A:Solved: Run a Legacy CPL Elevated

That has to do with your SigmaTel sound drivers. There must be some kind of compatibility issue, though I don't quite know why it would have just surfaced now.

I could not find any updated drivers, though perhaps somebody else will. For now I would think you can allow it.

If you wait to take any action until somebody comes through with a 100% definite answer I'm not offended one bit
