Troubleshooting

Can’t Install Hardware or Software

When I try to install new software, use a Control Panel or Computer Management tool, or set up hardware such as a printer or network adapter, I get an error message telling me I don’t have sufficient privileges to perform the operation.

Limited user accounts are not allowed to perform many management functions or to make changes to the Windows software folder. In general, this is a good thing because it prevents unauthorized people (such as young children, visitors, or meddlesome in-laws) from making changes to your computer setup. More subtly, it can help prevent rogue software from taking over your computer without your knowledge.
