  • 1. Deleting Internet History Folder
    So I sold an older computer and just bought a new laptop. Before I sold the other one, I saved my internet HISTORY from C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\ onto my external hard drive. So with this new laptop, I'm trying to bring in the saved history folder to overwrite this new history folder. BUT, it's not allowing me to overwrite, or even delete the folder. It says it's a folder that Windows requires to run properly and can't be deleted. I'm sure there are ways to delete it. Once it's deleted, I'll drag my saved history folder and I'll be set. I want all my visited links from my older computer to appear on my new laptop. Any way to do this?

If you open Control Panel> User Accounts (and User Accounts again if using 
Category View in Control Panel) -- what is the description shown for your 
user account? If you are in the administrator group, it will say "Computer 
Administrator" under your user name.

Administrator question

Postby Ann » Wed, 03 Mar 2004 23:17:40 GMT

Having been the only user of my computers for the past 10-11 years, I never
set myself up as Administrator.

Now, a program that I've downloaded and which has given me a registration
code, will not let me use my registration code to unlock the program unless
I have Administrative Privileges.

What do I need to do to get Administrative Privileges?

2.Administrator Question

I tried to download software in an administrator account and it started 
downloading for a little bit but then said "you do not have sufficient rights 
please sign into an administrator account". I tried downloading different 
software to make sure it wasn't the software and It said the same thing as I 
stated before. I tried restarting my computer a few times and the problem 
stayed persistant. Does anyone have suggestions on what I could do? Thankyou 
for everyone who read this and took the time to give a good response. 

3.Run as Administrator question

If I am an administrator, why do I have to run something as an administrator? 
 I have a app that I wrote that reads and writes a file.  I use this 
app a lot.  Why do I have to select Run As Administrator to get access to 
write to the file?  Is there any way I can tell Vista that this app is safe 
and always run as administrator?  I'm getting a little tired of the security 
prompts every time I want to do something.

4.administrator question

One of the programs I'm trying to run in Vista gets confused and crashes 
whenever it's run under an Administrator account. I have to log out of my 
usual Vista account and back in as a Guest in order to use it.

I'd rather stay in my Admin account though, so was wondering if it's 
possible to run a program under an Admin account, but tinker with the 
settings so it's not being run as an Admin? Maybe under the Security tab? 
Thanks in advance for any pointers :) 

5.Parent domain administrator question

When adding a computer into a child domain, only the child domain admin
group gets added to the local administrator account.  Anyone know how I can
add the parent domain admin account as well, automatically?
