admin rights getting back in vista?

Recommended Posts

hi fans,


i fumble just around on Vista and have found that I probably have not the full admin rights. but my account is listed as the admin


also i can not uninstall unnecessary Vista software


and with UAC I also had problems (I could not change the level ...) and i have therefore disabled by regedit




does anyone know how to get back the full administrator rights in Vista?

If it were my machine I would use Windows Repair from Tweaking.com (the developer smc1979 is a member here)




When you get to the repairs tab only select the boxes for file permissions and registry permissions .


It will take a little while to run.

thank you for your advice, :) i have try it...


--> the state of admin rights has remained the same

--> for now missing in the update is set to "for windows and other products..."

in conjunction with Vista I have a question ...

i have a kind of "photo calendar" with changing pics still from W98-hours. With UAC enabled the small program is constantly being blocked. (in 7 too)
Is there a way to define an exception rule for the UAC so that it no longer blocked in the future?


(without uac works)

somehow that did not work ... its only for w7.


"ignore the UAC" with trigger function (1.st at startup and 2.nd as login -->  has both not worked.  :wacko:  there came the error message: "You are not logged on the network"

--> i thought: what for a network at home? <_<



maybe I need sometime reinstall Windows Vista or I just turn only the UAC from.


but I thank you very much for your help, Hazelnut :)
