Windows 7: Full admin rights

Full admin rights

I'm running Windows 7 Pro in a domain environment. I seem to get allot of pop-ups telling me I'm need to run as administrator. I have admin rights but not full admin rights. If there is such a thing. Any ideas?

I used to be able to right click on the start button to see if an account has admin rights but this is not the case with Windows 7. Should I be looking some place else?

Thanks for the help.

Hi NC and welcome

There pop ups you are seeing are from the new user account control (UAC) it is now and has been a PITA. I always shut it off. It is supposed to be a security feature. There are instructions here on how to change it. User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings

Hope that helps

You can also activate the Super Admin account in windows 7 and use that if you want run a CMD Windows as admin (right-click and select run as administrator) then type this into the window
net user administrator /active:yes
then when you logout the administrator account will be there!

The built-in Administrator account is an account that has full access and permission on the computer. Here is the tutorial for more info Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps,

As per Microsoft, the builtin Admin account no longer has any unique features that are unavailable to other admin accounts. All it does it disable UAC and IE's Protected Mode by default.

Thank you, Capt. Jack. It did help and it worked. I did find that surfasb is correct. It appears to have no more rights than my administrator account.
