Windows 7: Denied Admin Account Pass ?

Denied Admin Account Pass ?

Most, if not all of the time, I'm logged into Windows 7 as a standard user. If I need to run a program as a Admin, I right click on the program and choose "run as administrator". I'm not getting prompt for the password, which is denying programs from installing even after rebooting.

Try the RUNAS cmd.

Eg.
Code:
c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe RUNAS /user:AdminAccount
Make sure you replace AdminAccount with the correct administrator account name.
You will be prompted for a password, so type it in and press Enter.
