Resolve administrator problems in Windows® 7
What type of administrator problems can you experience in Windows 7?
Windows 7 is the latest operating system released by Microsoft. It has lots of features and tools to enhance system performance. Different versions of Windows 7 are available in both 64 bit and 32 bit. Each version has its own features and many advanced tools. You can choose one that suits your needs. Needs and requirements differ from user to user, some use computers to prepare presentations, some use it to play games and watch movies when other users use computers to develop complex programs. To meet these requirements you need to install additional application programs on your system. At times, you may come across some issues regarding the administrator account with Windows 7. This might be because of several reasons. However, they can be fixed based on some useful tips.
Here are some of the administrator issues faced in Windows 7 along with tips to fix them:
- Corrupt registry
- Use of utility software
- Restriction issues
In a Windows 7 system, there is a chance of registry information getting corrupt by spyware or malware that sabotages msconfig.exe. At the time of a normal system boot process, Windows 7 will not be able to recognize the administrator password. This is because most virus programs will not only affect msconfig.exe but also the administrator password. However, this issue can be fixed by making use of virus removal software in Safe Mode. This will help to restore the administrator password and msconfig.exe file.
Use of utility software
Third-party utility software tool which acts as a "proxy” can prevent msconfig.exe from functioning. Usually, the proxy software will copy program files which belong to all users and administrator passwords as well as msconfig.exe. Most of the proxy programs will consist of menu systems which a user can configure to make msconfig.exe work.
Msconfig.exe can get loaded in Windows 7 even with administrator access, but you will not be able to perform system duties and programs which are in software programs. It is this issue which leads to restricted errors, which means that the administrator does not have proper user rights as well as privileges assigned to make use of msconfig.exe. One of the best solutions to overcome this issue is to check the program and determine, what administrator rights have been assigned to msconfig.exe.
