  1. Unable to perform admin tasks after converting Admin account to Standard user


    There are two administrators of which I am the owner of my pc and ICT service is the other. I've just changed my status to standard user and therefore cannot have access to do anything like installing a software or make changes as usual. When I tried to install a software, the pc ask for the ICTs password. Please any help?




    ***Modified title from: Administrator***

  2. My ID Is An Admin, But I cannot perform Admin functions

    Hi Michael,

    I realize that you are unable to perform some admin functions on the pc even though you have logged in to the pc as admin. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Please answer this question to get more clarity on this issue:


    • What is the error message you get while trying to perform admin functions?

    If your current user account is not an admin account then using the built in admin account you can change the current user account into admin account. Press Windows key + X and click on Control Panel. Click on User account to see if your user account
    is set as admin or standard.

    An administrator account is a user account that lets you make changes that will affect other users. Administrators can change security settings, install software and hardware, and access all files on the computer. Administrators can also make changes
    to other user accounts.

    If your current user account is set as admin then follow these steps to disable the built in admin account.

    Press Windows + X key together on your desktop screen.


    • Click on Command Prompt (admin) to open Command Prompt.

    • Type the following command and hit Enter:

    • net user administrator /active: no (Check for the spaces).

    Once this is done the built in admin account is disabled.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

  3. Racemic Win User
    My Admin Account isn't truly admin


    Hi guys,

    I have a W10 user account attached to my microsoft account. It is listed as a full on admin account. However, with certain tasks it doesn't let me do certain admin tasks.

    I wanted to make changes to my hosts file, but was unable to do so. Any thoughts? Thanks.
