I have win7 myself and haven’t run into any administrative issues yet as appose to vista. But if you're having problems, search google on how to unlock the main administrator account.

If it’s anything like vista, you can unlock the admin account by simply typing in a couple of lines in command prompt. By doing so bypassed a lot of hassles in vista for me.

Do you have an administrative account or the password for an administrative account? If not, you're out of luck...

Well then sign on using that account and password and you'll have administrative privileges!

There are some things that even an administrator can't do. For example, you can't delete a file that is locked by a running program - you have to stop the program first. You can't run CHKDSK /f on a disk that has files open - you have to reboot to safe mode and make sure nothing's using the disk. The OS drive ALWAYS has open files on it, so the only way to handle it is to schedule a CHKDSK to run at the next reboot before the OS has fully loaded.

Why do all you techs act so arrogant, like when someone asks a question, you answer condescendingly? If everyone knew all the answers, you guys or gals would be out of a job, now wouldn't you? Get off your high horse and be more humble, because your not all that.
