ICIT2LOL is correct. Without admin access what you can do on that computer is severely restricted and there really isn't anything that you can do about it. That isn't your computer but your employer's. Doing anything to undermined the security in-place would likely be breaching their security and asset usage policies which could get you in a lot of trouble. If you think about they have to worry about every computer they own since you likely have access to a sensitive internal network and they have to think about the safety of the other computers and servers on the network. If you are having problems with the computer you should take it to your company's IT department. Therefore I am compelled not to help you except to say that you should forget about doing whatever it is that you are trying to do. Messing with their assets could get you fired if not worse.

Before I retired I worked for a company that handled very sensitive data. The IT department was staffed 24/7/365 and was responsible for over 8,000 employees and about 15,000 computers. Every employee who believed he should have elevated computer rights was allowed to present his case to the IT department. Each request was reviewed for three primary justifications.
(1) Would the employee be more productive;
(2) Would the IT department have less work; and
(3) Would sensitive data be compromised.
If the answer to those three questions were yes, yes, and no respectively the employee had a good chance of receiving elevated computer privileges. But nobody, not even the CEO, ever received full administrative privileges. That right was reserved for the IT people alone. Moral of the story, present your case to your IT department.

Well that is something that is out of your control. As stated talk to your IT department or your manager for the procedure on how to get admin access. Keep in mind that they are not obligated to elevate your access. Make a strong case and prove that you have a valid business need and you just might get it. There isn't anything else that you can do or that we can help you do.

I'm just wondering what the huge deal of you being a admin on corporate laptop is? If your trying to crack the security policy they have in place and most companies can find out and know everything your doing on that laptop you can land yourself in some deep trouble or terminated if they decide to run a security check on that computer. Like everyone said just leave well enough alone. If you need any admin access you will have to request it.

Yep which I said a few posts back and is something that I would not even think about at work because all I ever want to do is say change the backgrounds or the size of the mouse anything more than those sort of simplistic things then you are wandering into maybe unpleasant areas.
I am left wondering at what level in that organisation the OP is actually and if it were my company then I would set the admin rules as I thought appropriate for each of my employees.

My company run's the linux OS opensuse to be exact but they have it LOCKED down so hard you can't make any configurations not even wallpaper or mouse. They all network boot into the OS so I know for a fact they would know in a heartbeat if the system was being cracked or tampered in anyway although I believe being a Linux OS that would be very very hard thing to do. I remember one time I brought my own laptop in and network booted it took them like 5 seconds to realize it wasn't a company computer trying to boot into the system and kicked it and traced it to the store I'm at and lets say I got a hell of a slap on the wrist. So I've learned to not mess with anything than what I'm supposed to be doing. I know for a fact they know I'm on this website right now from work. lol

Yep me too mate thing is there is loads of wifi access but one needs admin to use it and even if I could crack it - unlikely if they found what I was doing I would go for a row in no uncertain manner if not the sack. That would mean losing any superann in fact just about any financial entitlement I would be up for. I can only advise the OP to think about doing anything on company "time"

They say it very, VERY rarely does any good which is why most super users suggest locking down the reporting to Microsoft anyway. That could be one of the reason the IT department turned off the "feature." Another "spyware" feature of Windows. Who has heard of their reporting that has resulted in a positive effect on the issue?
