    Firefox won't run; Administrative permission

    (I probably asked this question some time ago, but I can't find on the site. Please be patient with me if you can find what I couldn't.)

    I'm running Windows 10 *upgraded from 8.1) on a Lenovo G700 laptop. After Tuesday's update, I found that Firefox (my default browser) won't run. Instead, I get a "This app has been blocked by your System Administrator" message. What settings must I change to let Firefox run? (My other browsers--Edge, IE, Opera, Epic and Chrome--run with no problems.)

    no administrator permission

    Hi Ryan,

    Let us assist you to have an Administrator permission. To start, follow the steps below to enable the Windows Super Administrator Account.

    • Type CMD on the search box.
    • CMD will appear at top.
    • Right click on it, then choose Run as administrator.
    • Type this command & hit Enter: Net user administrator /active:yes.
    • After you enable the Super Administrator account, log out on your existing account then log into Super Administrator account.
    • On the Super Administrator account, you can now create an Administrator account or give Administrator permission on the existing account.

    After you created an Administrator account, we suggest that you disable the Super Administrator account by following the same steps and using this command:
    Net user administrator /active:no.

    Let us know how it goes.
