Administrator function is used to make system wide changes. This include system software / driver installation, User Creation and all other action that effect system changes

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 5 months ago.

To work in full system administrator function, you need an account with admin privilege or use "run as administrator" option action that require admin function

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 5 months ago.

To check whether your account has admin function, you may do this on your windows computer

1: Click Start > Search Type cmd press enter key

2: Right click cmd > Click run as administrator

If you get command prompt opened, we can confirm your account has admin privilege..

Let me know whether i have answered..

Hey.. I am back

Just went out for a tea break..

Question is still active and won't be closed until your update..

Let me come back to the question:

No, i want you to open CMD using "Run as administrator"

Here's the procedure:

1: Click Start > type cmd

2: When found right click command prompt > Click "run as administrator"

3: Then you will get command prompt screen get opened

(All we need to know is whether you can open command prompt window using "run as administrator" option)

(If you are not an admin privileged used, you will be prompted to enter username ans password ***** you right click "run as administrator" option)

I'm waiting for an answer regarding my complaint about this erroneous charge on my card for $31.00. I'm very very very disappointed with just answer. You probably won't reply to me now.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Now you want me to pay $39.00 for more service. What is wrong with you folks?
Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 5 months ago.

No, you are mistaken. There is no further charge for this question.

The message that appear on your is screen is for premium service. Since we don't need just ignore that message.

All you have to do is to answer me.

Expert:  arsufi2002 replied 5 months ago.

It seems you are confused with the answer given. To break down that i am giving out another method to find out whether your account profile has admin privilege

Here's the procedure:

1: Right click Start button > Click Run
2: On Run dialog box type lusrmgr.msc
This opens windows local users and groups section
3: Double click Users > Right side you can see your profile name
4: Double click your Profile > Click Properties > Click Member of tab
If you see administrators there, you account is a part of admin privileged user.

Let me know that helps

Thank You
