And very sorry for my belated reply (I missed the mail notification somehow).

But
the still problem persists when I'm logged into the admin account. Though I agree its very strange.
Hello Zopfan,

In that case, please go ahead and post a screenshot showing the message when you open the Network ans Sharing Center to see if anything may stand out.

Back in your original post, you mentioned starting the Elevated Command Prompt from a shortcut, and I love shortcuts. How would I make the shortcut?

Sevenforums is like an encyclopedia!

Where does that permission fit in on the spectrum of permissions? Equal to the Hidden Admin?

It runs with the elevated rights (permissions) of the "administrators" group instead.

But I have to use it in DOS?

I started this because I can't install Skype, I've tried everything else, and I know from experience that the problem is in Win 7. Should I post that on a different board?

This elevated command prompt shortcut will run within Windows.

What were you wanting to do with the elevated command prompt?

I've been trying to install Skype for several weeks. "Permissions" and I have a running battle since I acquired this computer. I'm an admin, and the only one using this computer. I set up the Hidden Admin User with PW just for extreme cases, I've used it only twice, and it hasn't worked in either case.

In the case of Skype, I get these 4 errors. I've already been to their forum, and I see no sign of the installer being corrupt. After changing various permissions, I finally tried this, but it did nothing:

If you feel this topic doesn't fit here, just move me to another board.

Just to verify, have you already tried right clicking on the Skype installer and clicking on "Run as administrator"?

Yes, that was the first thing. Then taking ownership of my Start Menu, then Hidden Admin. The place where several other installs have stalled is at Start Menu shortcuts. Dunno why.
