Runas Domain Admin for a program seamlessly everytime

Q: Runas Domain Admin for a program seamlessly everytime

I am looking for a way to run a particular program as the Domain Admin without the users seeing any prompt for username or password. Any script would do, I can put the users that need it into another group and have that group have its own logon script or just run it locally upon startup. We are running XP workstations on a Windows domain network.

A: Runas Domain Admin for a program seamlessly everytime

You need it to run as Domain Admin or as a Local Admin. Domain Admin would probably be really bad policy.

I think EPAL can do what you need, but I'm not totally sure.

Hello,
we get proxy not responding messages in IE 11.
In Google Chrome and if we run IE 11 as admin it works.
We use a proxy.pac on a http:// webspace which returns the correct proxy server and port.
Furthermore if we use the browser bar to search, bing returns results, but when we open these results we get proxy is not responding.

Hi,

I have a domain joined windows 7pro (64bit) not able to connect to shared folder on a non domain joined pc with windows 7pro (32bit). Only public folders are accessible. I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

Does my domain admin have access to the homegroup and the shared folders on the home pc?

What are my options for access to a non public secure folder on the non domain pc from the domain joined pc.


Sorry for the awkward description, don't know how else to describe the situation.

my apologies if these questions were addressed elsewhere, I could not find any relevant threads.

Thanks

A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

We have a script that installs a program (Office 2007). It then imports some registry file settings. It imports HKLM and HKCU. We have noticed that if this is installed as a local admin, the settings seem to take if we scan the box as a local admin(we are running a security scan to determine this (the security scan checks multiple gpo's supposed to be set by the program/reg imports). If we scan as a domain admin, the system doesn't seem to show they are set. We believe we see the opposite if it's installed as a domain admin. For the domain scan they are set, for the local scan they are not. Does this have to do with how you can change registry entries as a domain admin versus local admin? The registry settings are imported with reg.exe import filename.reg like commands in the .bat script. Any ideas are helpful.

Hello,

Recently I have installed on a Virtual Machine Windows 7 so I can run automated builds on it with Jenkins.
The problem comes here : I need to launch a .bat script from cmd, but as an administrator.When I try to do that, I get the error :





Quote:
RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run - *path to my file*.

1327:Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, log on hour restrictions, or a policy restriction has been enforeced.


I have been looking on the internet and found here a solution, but sadly, I do not have HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\limitblankpassworduseWould be there any way I can run my script, remotely, as an administrator?

Thank you!

A:runas administrator from cmd, error RUNAS ERROR 1327 Logon failure

This require you to clearly indicate which folder is that file.bat come from.

cmd.exe C:\Win7\temp\file.bat

It require the full path name.

Hence you need these steps.
1. Touch on the WIN key.
2. in the bottom where you need to input cmd.exe C:\Win7\temp\file.bat
3. This will show on the top.
4. Right-click and select Run as administrator

In this way, you are in the administrator mode.

When a Network User is logged On they get prompted for Admin rights when they try to install something or change a setting... I'd rather them enter the Local Admin account on Windows 7 then giving them a Network Admin info since all the private files associated with that network admin would be available to them... But every prompt is asking for DOMAIN admin

Hi guys,

I am very new to this and I may not even have worded my problem correctly but I'll tell you what it is and if anyone can solve it I would be very grateful because I am at the limit of my windows knowledge here.

I am needing to set up a new administrator on my laptop, running Windows 7 Ultimate. The problem I'm having is when you try to create a new account it asks for a domain name? First of all - the only domains I am familiar with are website domains and I am assuming this is a different kind of domain, similar to a workgroup or something I've read. It seems my computer is attached to a domain which I have the name for now - found in the computers properties page. When I use this name for the domain when creating a new administrator account it gives me the error: The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

Here's the twist - This computer and I guess domain were set up in Australia. I am now in America trying to add this new admin....should this cause a problem? Is the domain an online network thing that it needs to connect to to operate, and if so do I have to literally be on the same internet network/modem to be connected to the domain? Really lost here but trying to find a way around this / work out if I am screwed and can't do it from America.

I've attached pics of the process I'm going through.

A:How can i set up a new admin if i'm not connected to my domain??

Generally speaking, To remove the PC from the Domain it must be physically attached to the Domain and someone with Domain Admin privileges must change its membership from Domain to Workgroup.

Although you should be able to change from Domain to a Workgroup but the Domain account will still be there.

The link shows you how to change from a Domain to a Workgroup, I included another picture for clarity.

After changing to a Workgroup you must restart the machine before creating the new Admin account.

Hey guys, I have yet another problem/question. I am trying to catch up on all the little jobs that I have been putting off for the last few months.

Todays job is locking down security.

The company that created our main application keeps the servers it runs on maintained and up to date, so they need to have full admin access to the 3 servers it runs off.

Now they connect to us using our Citrix system and up until now they have had Domain admin status. I know this shouldnt be done, but we have a very good relationship with them.

So today I figured I would remove their domain admin status and make it so they are admins of the 3 servers they need to be, therefore limiting what they have access to.

I would normally sort this out by going to the machine they will be working on and adding the user id to the Local Administrators group, however when I go into control panel on the servers they do not have a "useres and computers" option.

So my question is, how can I make them admin of the 3 servers and not have access anywhere else on the network?

Hello,

here is my case : I'm using a laptop
I'm using this laptop at office and at home
At office I am a domain admin (let's say MyDomain\MyUser) and I use this user to log in to my machine
I have added MyDomain\MyUser as a local admin of my machine
At hime, I'm not connected to "MyDomain" but I still log in using the account MyDomain\MyUser. It's ok I can connect
But anyway, when I'm at home there are some things I cannot do like : doing "cmd iisreset" --> must be admin
launching a "visual studio" solution whena project is registered to IIS --> must be admin
In SQL Server, I cannot do some modification (when I log as windows authentication, and even if this user is dbowner)
As I understand, when I'm disconnected of the domain, it does not "really" recognize me as being an admin any more, until he "can be sure" it's me by checking in the domain.

There are some scenario where this is very blocking for me.
Can I solve that ? And how ?

Many thanks !

If any computer policies were applied, you'll be stuck with those regardless of what account you use. It's always best to do a clean install in this kind of situation. Otherwise you'll likely be fighting with one problem after another.

Maybe by final release they will have the Office 365 connectivity thing sorted out.
But for now, NEVER use an Office365 email account as your Windows 8 sign in as I did :(

When you delete an account, it leaves a 5 empty folder remnant which cannot be deleted.

Hi,

First time poster here. I am in my first year being in the IT world. I was hired in as a helping hand to the Admin here and then he quit. Now I find myself in an interesting position as he has not yet been replaced. Anyway...

A machine was recently reformatted and re-added to the domain. Even though the computer is located in the proper OU in AD, and the user is configured on the machine as a local admin, there are still greyed out boxes in many places and she is told she does not have the proper access when she tried to install things from her domain account on the machine.

We have a guy in that office with full Domain power. I kind of wonder if he might have added the machine to the domain and THEN changed the computer name. Wouldn't that cause some kinds of issues? I am waiting response from him on that.

Can't really think of any more relevant details.

Hi NM,

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.

Hi all..

We have unfortunately just ended up with our first Vista machine here at work and 30 mins into my setup Ive already run into a question..

Dell, Vista Business, joined into our domain

Having googled around a bunch, I understand that the local admin account is disabled upon install.

I found a tip that recommended running cmd as admin and
net user administrator password
net user administrator activate:yes

I performed this, got command successful returned from both.. but when I try to login as <compname>\Administrator @ the login, or try to use the same to perform any tasks on the system I get denied and am told bad user or pw.

I ran user setup as domain admin and confirmed that my local user account is part of the administrator group... found that the local Administrator account was still set as disabled, so I cleared the disabled checkbox.. Im too paranoid to use "Set password" however in case my prior password did somehow work (it doesnt appear to have) and by then Setting Password I'd be screwing my admin account of its encrypted files (do I even have any if the accounts never been logged into?)

I'm setting up a new Dell Vostro 1014 with Windows 7 Professional 32bit preinstalled. I was able to connect it to my company's domain and log in as the domain admin.

I logged in as this computer admin and went to users accounts. I added the domain user there and they are part of the administrator group.
I clicked on the advanced tab up top and went to "advanced user management". I clicked groups and opened up "administrators". I added "domain admins", "domain users" and "domain\saleslaptop2" (the actual user).

I did the same by logging in as the domain admin.

I couldn't add a new folder for hijackthis in "program files" without getting an error. I can't add a folder in "c/users/saleslaptop2"

I found this thread: Domain users and the super admin account
and tried:
cmd,
gpupdate /force

I still have the issues. I couldn't install the accounting software by double clicking on the setup.exe on the network folder like I normally do. I had to right click and "run as administrator". I was able to get it to run, but it took FOREVER. It normally takes 5 minutes, I had to leave it going overnight. It seemed to keep freezing and took a long time when installing .net 1.1 (for my accounting software).

I can't seem to get the domain user to have administrative privileges. It went so smooth when I upgrade my Vostro 1500 from Win XP to WIn 7 Pro 32bit.

Any suggestions?

A:No admin privileges when logged in as a domain user

Since you are on a domain, are you enforcing group policy ? You are making the user account a Local administrator on this computer, but not a Domain Administrator. Group policy will keep this user account from doing some things if the account is just a domain user. I assume that this user will not normally be a domain administrator, is that correct ? In Active Directory on the server, open Active Directory Users and Groups and see what domain groups does this user account belong to ? You may have to temporarily add this user account to one or more administrative groups in AD for this user account to do all the things you want it to be able to do. Try adding this user to the Domain Admins and the Group Policy Creator / Owners groups on the server, then go to the PC and log in as the user. You may need to log in twice before the elevated permissions show up. When done, be sure to remove this user account from the administrative groups in AD.

Our computer network was Windows XP Pro. We upgraded the computers to Windows 7 Pro.

Under XP, users were allowed to update without any problems.

With Windows 7, it prompts for an administrator account.

The computers already have checked "Allow all users to install updates on this computer". However it does indicate on that same screen at the top "Some settings are managed by your system Administrator".

Currently it's wanting to install the monthly malware tool, but is unable to do so without domain admin's credentials.

What I'm baffled with is that this worked under the WinXP systems, but not Win7 systems.

Server did not change anything (Win2003 Server) w/ active directory.

Might there be some group policy on the server that wouldn't allow Win7 computers, when WinXP computers worked? Or is there something beyond the "Who can install updates" option on the computers locally?

All computers on the network experience this same problem.

Thank you for any suggestions and taking the time to read this!

Hey all,

I have recently installed Windows 7 on my development machine at work primarily in order to test it and get a feel for it and all the little things that can go wrong before the IT department I work for roll it out to all the other employees at the company. (They're still on XP SP 3).

Unfortunately, I'm experiencing several crippling issues caused by the stricter administration model used in Windows 7 (and Vista, for that matter) compared to Windows XP. We have programs crashing or refusing to install or run because they were designed for XP and require admin rights. So when they're unable to acquire them from Windows 7, the programs throw exceptions. An example of this is Trend Micro OfficeScan, a popular antivirus program used in many companies. This program is caused to install by start-up scripts that are run when you log on to your computer using your domain username and credentials, but the installer crashes, because the domain user is not a local super admin.

And that's the core of this question. I want my domain user to have full administrative privileges. I've done a lot of research on this particular problem and I realize it's possible to activate a special super admin-account that has full access to everything on the computer, but that workaround doesn't cut it for me, because the only thing that accomplishes is to make the super admin account available for login, but the super admin account is not a domain user at my company's network, it is a local us...

A:Domain users and the super admin account

Due to the Dual token design of the security model in use you will have issues with applications designed for the older model.

The solution to this need not be an all or nothing one however, It should be possible to give the required installer rights to the user group(s) concerned, directly.

This may be done universally to the complete program files folder(s) or more usefully to individual folders for the older problem apps.

I have seen situations where a non working older program can be made to work/Install by the granting a standard user full access rights to a single settings file or to the installation folder.

Depending on what you desire as a company you can make some groups allowed to install some software or not just by the application of the correct rights, In a domain environment this is of course a lot easier than a peer to peer set up.

Unfortunately due to the developers taking the easy way out with regards to administrative rights with XP there will be some re-thinking required by those tasked with moving to a more secure modern OS. This is quite possible though there will be a learning curve.

The main issue with application installation is not the need for a "super" admin but the "trusted user" used by UAC to protect the Program store. by taking ownership of the role of this "User" most if not all issues may be resolved.

Full information on the Trusted Installer scenario is available from Microsoft on technet - or of course ... Read more

Hello, I am on a domain at my job and amd setting up a laptop for a user. We always set everyone up on the domain, but I am wanting to set up a local admin account, not on our domain so they cannot access all of our files. What is the best way to go about this?

Hello I am a Network Administrator at a local school. On a certain number of machines when I am logged in as the user and attempt to install software it simply tells me that I need to have administrator privileges and prevents me from installing anything, so in other words no administrator login prompt, which is what I am looking for - simply type in the password and move forward.

Now on most PC's this works fine I click to install software, the admin login information pops up I type in my administrator login and password, it installs and everyone is happy.

How do I fix this for the machines/users that do not prompt me for this.

PS I should also add that the PC's are in fact on the domain, and I can log into the administrator login by logging off the user and into the administrator account. but i'd like to be able to install software directly from the users profile and not switch to the administrator login... which some PC's I can, and others it tells me I need admin privileges.

Iím new to this forum, am not a techie, donít think Iím asking for help in doing anything illegalÖso please let me know if anyone can help me. I stupidly followed someoneís advice to rename my work computer laptop in order to bypass admin rights, and now I canít 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 domainÖwithout having to admit to my IT department what I did?

In our organization (Environment is Win 2k3 Server Ent. R2 x32, Win XP Pro x32) , the CIO has decided to tighten up our policy & procedures. We have a Help Desk that has a Tier 1, 2 & 3 level of support. Currently, the tier 2 & 3 uses the Builtin Domain Admin account (at the workstation level) for resolving issues, client configuration and troubleshooting. We want to create a secondary 'Junior Domain Administrator' account for tier 2 & 3 to use @ the workstations. This way it keeps prying eyes from the God account PW and allows us to keep the God account @ the Server level only.

Rather than adding individual support personnel to a Security Group in AD for this purpose, we want to set up one limited 'blanket' account IT personnel to use that has principle of Least Priviledge to User Accounts. Using the 'Run As' really doesn't fit our need either.

We only want this 'secondary account' to have the following capabilities when logging into the workstation level:

1. Add/Remove Programs
2. Change a User's Profile level (Power user, standard user, etc)
3. Configure / Change IP & Network settings @ the workstation
4. Attach / Detach client from Domain

Hello, Qrush007! Let's start with some important instructions:
Last, but not least, be patient. I know it is very stressful to have a computer with a potential malware infection, but unfortunately it will take some time to get to your topic. We will, though, get to you and attempt to resolve your issues to the utmost of our ability.
Avoid installing or uninstalling programs during the malware removal process, because doing so can cause discrepancies between the information in different log files created by different programs at different times.
Do NOT run tools such as Combofix unless instructed by a BleepingComputer staff member. These tools can break your computer if used improperly, so you should only run them if you know what you are doing or if the person who told you to use Combofix knows what they're doing.
If you want to, you should back up all important documents and files to an external storage device or online file backup service. Malware infections--and attempts to fix them--can prevent your computer from booting up, making your files unaccessable; this means that backing up your files to an USB flash drive or to an online service like Dropbox before attempting to remove malware is a good idea.

hi,

I work in a school with a CC3 (RM) network basically modified windows xp and 2000, i have joined a standard windows xp machine to the domain and added a user on the domain local admins group, however when this user logs in they can see the c drive and access other usually restricted parts of windows what they can not do is change the screen resolutions or right click on the task bar.

what would cause this to happen? my understanding is that once the user is in the local admin group they should have full access to everything on that laptop and rm will not supplt support because they do not support standard windows.

there is no way to block this kind of use from active directory is there ??

Hello. In on of the labs I run with dual boot Linux and windows 7, I've been experiencing this issue with 2 PCs. Today I noticed one more had this issue. They were connected to my windows domain but today, when trying to login, there is no domain connection
possibility anymore  and one of the local administrators is gone too. Local Administrator password is unknown but after resetting it from a linux boot disk  I'm able to login but some of the programs have vanished while others still run.

The Bios is boot protected, so I don't think any user could boot a CD/USB to mess with the PC.
One thing I was thinking was if someone got root privileges in Linux and mount the Windows partition and mess with it. But even if someone got the root password, how come the administrator and student local accounts still exist?

Windows restore points are disable, so I think that even if the machines were not shutdown properly, they would no rollback to some inconsistent state.

Has anyone experienced something like this?

I have ZoneAlarm, Norton, Spysweeper, AdAware, Spysweeper, and Spybot Search and Destroy and check my PC often so a virus seems unlikely but you never know I guess. I was playing an online game (World of Warcraft) when the first reboot occured and can't do anything since. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Hi Everyone,

I am using a Windows 7 client on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain (and I am the Administrator of the Domain). The client that I am using is refusing to let me add addition User Accounts to the Administrator group (despite the fact that I am logged on as the Domain Administrator).


Furthermore if I attempt to log onto the client computer as the local Administrator by specifying the computer name rather than the Domain name at logon I see the following -

Finally if I then follow, these Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7, 8, or Vista
instructions to enable the hidden administrator account I am met with the following message -

I have considered an offline password reset disk, however the local ('hidden') Administrator account is disabled! This feels like a catch 22, can anybody offer any suggestions on how to restore true Administrative access?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

A:Can't get true Admin access to a client computer (that is part of my work Domain)

Go to Start/Search and type netplwiz and press enter. Advanced tab/Advanced button/Users. Reset the Built in Local Administrator Password. Go to Start/Search and type sysdm.cpl and press enter /Change Take the computer off of the Domain by clicking the Workgroup radio button and rebooting. Login as Local Administrator. Now you should be able to enable the Hidden Administrator account, and any other users you want to create.
Go over to the server to AD and make sure the user account is not disabled, and that the computer is also reinstated in the network and is not part of any Group Policies. Then join the computer back to the Domain.

Hi all and nice to meet you

I tried to search the answer around the web without a positive result.
I've a customer where we're running a windows 7 machine with something like a supervisor software

Over the same machine (windows 7 x64bit) I've configured a standard screensaver using the built-in option inside windows.

The question is: how can I setup the screensaver in order to stop it everytime the supervisor software goes in alarm ?

Thinking about the same situation with Outlook, how can I setup the screensaver in order to stop it evrytime I receive a new email ?

Thanks in advance for your feedback

Hi there!

So I've been getting this BSOD problem for a few months now and it actually hasn't hassled me too much in the past since I'm a good "saver" and it typically was a good reminder for me to get up and take a break every now and then. The problem recently has gotten much worse, however.

It typically happens when I'm running a program called "FL Studio", a program for music production. The BSOD usually occurs when switching songs or when recording from my external soundcard/interface, the Digidesign MBOX 2... I've since uninstalled the program until I can fix this issue

Now I know there's a whole slew of combatting drivers playing a role in this problem. Or maybe I don't know the gist of it at all--that's where I'm hoping you folks can lend a hand.

? OS - Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit
? Originally had Vista installed.. did a clean install of Windows 7 (not upgrade)
? Purchased from a retailer
? Hardware is roughly 2 years old
? Windows 7 was installed over the summer (July of 2010)
? CPU - AMD Athlong 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.00 Ghz
? Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS
? MotherBoard - Asus M3N72-D
? Power Supply - brand & wattage -How do I find this?

I attached the .zip file too!
Hope to hear back soon

Thanks!

Hi there I tried everything I know to do from uninstalling and reinstalling drivers as well as programs in order to fix a BSOD issue I have been getting.

I have a razer blackwidow keyboard and it has a configurator to assign values to keys. However when ever I try to launch the program nothing seems to happen. But when I check my task manager's processes its there. SO I tried to end-task the configurator and the whole system crashes. And it is only with this program that i find this issues and I can replicate the results every time I try it. I have also had this program work fine before so I cant figure out what it is. I tried googling however there didnt seem to be any solutions for this particular problem.

I Was hoping you can take a look at these error reports and help me figure out whats wrong.

Each time I try to open something new my computer acts like it's the most taxing thing it's ever seen. It took about a minute an a half to open this browser, same thing happens when I open anything, basically. Once I get programs open they run alright, maybe a little slow here and there, but every program doesn't want to open in a reasonable amount of time. It jut kinda acts like nothing happened for a long time then will finally open it.
 
I've run a few free malware/spyware(ioBit, Adaware) scans and they all say my computer is running fine. Sometimes it seems to help if I move the mouse or click around, kinda like the computer "forgets" that it's trying to open something until I prod it, and sometimes it seems as though it suspends everything I'm doing for a while, until it tries really hard to catch up and does everything at once.

Seamless? Probably not.

Here's something that will probably work, but it's not seamless. Install the Silicon Image raid drivers on the current setup. Do an Image backup with something like Acronis True Image or Norton GHOST to a non-RAID drive. Install the new RAID controller, restore the image back to the new RAID array, and boot up.

I've installed a couple of RAID systems by first installing the O/S onto a non-RAID drive, then GHOSTing it to the RAID array after the fact. Worked just fine...

I have two wireless routers set up in my home running on different SSIDs. How do i configure the network connections so that it automatically connects to the one with the strongest signal (which depends on where I'm using the laptop)?? When i use the same ssid on both routers it doesn't seem to siwtch to strongest signal. One other bit of info -- one access point is 2.4ghz wireless G the other is a dual band (2.4 and 5ghz) wireless N.

A:Seamlessly Switch to best Network Connection

That's the difference between consumer-grade wifi equipment and the premium stuff which costs big bikkies. The latter can seamlessly "roam" when a user moves through an office building with her laptop, always establishing an association between the wireless NIC and the WAP with the currently strongest signal.

What you want is probably impractical unless your wifi NIC drivers export "accessor" functions which would allow your code to poll for or subscribe to events corresponding to significant signal strength changes. Then you'd have to code the solution yourself (unless the NIC manufacturer already provides a utility or sample code), and that would be far from a trivial exercise.

Right, so. My sis got a computer a couple of days ago. We're both very new to vista, but I'm a bit more of a comp wonk, so when it started to bug up a little, I thought I'd play around with it to get a handle on the system.

I'm having a bit of trouble getting a handle on the system. It's not my computer, so I can't tell you every spec right now, and I don't even have access to it at the moment. So this thread is, for now, a bit of a hail-mary pass. If the problem is recognizable enough to diagnose from my scant details, awesome. If not, I'll post them as I discern them.

That being said, the problem is this; as far as my tests have led me to believe, in full screen games only, my sound lags. Usually during cut-scenes, but sometimes during gameplay itself. But the thing is, it's strangely seamless. There's no crackle or distortion. A slight pause, and then the sound cuts off while the video goes on. After about 7-12 seconds, the sound comes back right where it left off, only now the video is obviously out of sync with it.

It's a 32 bit os, multicore processor, 4 gigs ram, Nvidia 7600 GT card. Every driver is up to date unless I made a mistake with the updating processes, and the audio chipset is the intel soundmax hd audio(I couldn't find any drivers for this chipset, so it's probably running at out of box drivers. The auto update told me they were up to date, but I've never trusted that thing, sooo.)

You should uninstall the audio drivers and then google them for the latest, Microsoft won't always detect the latest drivers.

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

Is your account a standard user, or a member of the admin group? You can check cpanel>users>your user. Does it say admin?

Windows Server can create a domain and create User Accounts.
when a computer join this domain and login with one user, i check local  users , Groups:Administrators.  only Domain Admins
there is no user account, only a domain user. Is there any way to check how many user login on this computer? not on server client.
a way is to check C:\user
yongliang_s could be an AD account or local account or msa account. how to distinguish them? and the admin in them?

Can I get a program to run with admin without giving users local admin or a local admin password.

I have a programs which seems to need admin but do not want to grant local admin to my users.

Power users is no use.

Thanks

A:Program needs to run with admin

There is a trick where you use task scheduler to launch a program with elevated rights and without asking any password or confirmation:
Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create

You need to know the admin password for creating it, but the shortcut works on its own after that. But be aware that this is a security risk as anyone can elevate without knowing a password. Be sure that the program don't have any backdoor that allows users to take complete control if they really want (open/save as dialogs are particularly powerful when running elevated).

My computer uses the Windows XP operating system, and I'm curious as to know how I can run a program as administrator. When I try to run something as administrator, a window pops up asking me if I want to run it using my own profile, or run it using the administrator profile. However, I don't remember the password in order for me to run the program as administrator. Logging off and switching to the administrator user profile does nothing to fix this, as I still need the password. How would it possible for me to get the password for the administrator so I can run the program as administrator?
(I can include a picture if that will help communicate my problem)
 

A:How to run a program as admin?

Usually there is no administrator pw. Just hit enter at the pw prompt.
