I am trying to eliminate some of the icons in the system tray using msconfig. I am automatically logged in as administrator, but when I remove some of the icons and hit save I get the message not logged in as administrator.

More about : run msconfig administrator

Hi Newcomer,Welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Check your administrator Rights

Boot into safe mode

Go to Start, then Run, and type in

control userpasswords2

and press Enter.

In the dialog that appears, you can either add an account or check the
properties of an account. Clicking on the Properties box will give you
another window. There will be a tab that says Group Membership. On that tab
you can click Other, and in the drop down box will be all sorts of account
choices - Administrator included.

You can also go through Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Computer
Management to achieve the same effect.
