    Get around admin block on installing programs

    I need help. I have been waiting for this for a long time. I need the admin password in order to install new programs, or even update ones I already have. I do not know my admin's password. I have already tried password crackers, (including ophcrack), running safe mode, and several command prompt tricks, all of which show up as "access denied". I cannot run cmd with admin privilages, as this requires the admin password to do on my computer. My computer is a Windows 7 Toshiba brand notebook laptop.

    Help is appreciated.

    Have you tried using the option that says "Run as Administrator" to solve the problem, that you can get when you right-click on the icon of the particular application or software. There are many security settings in Windows 7 because of which you keep getting such particular types of messages. I have been successful to install many softwares in my system with the help of the above method, that used to keep giving me messages like "Administrator rights required". This will hopefully solve the problem.

    There is another way. You need to create a new account for the same by filling the parameters that is been required and then under the manage option choose type as Admin account. Then restart the system and then login suing the same new account. This would help you out. Check out.
