How do i gain admin rights

Specs: Windows 7
I would like to know how i gain admin rights from a limited user account. I have access to cmd however, i get acces denied when i try to do anything such as mkdir. I can't download anything either nor does rebooting the computer and putting it in safe mode work either. I can't change the admin password through cmd Because that just leads me to the system error 5. I need help on how to get pass this

Who owns the computer? That is who can grant you administrator privileges.

By design, only someone logged in as an administrator can give you admin privileges. You cannot do this from a limited account. The ability to do this would pose an enormous security risk which would be corrected as a high priority.

I guess that is why you were allowed to register and post here.

You are suggesting methods to circumvent the built in protocols.

If the original poster had control of the computer they would already have administrator rights. The fact that they don't speaks volumes.

If you came here to flame, or be a proponent of illegal operations then I suggest you hit the road.

That type of behavior will not be tolerated.

Moderator, I guess while I was responding someone removed the post I was responding to. Feel free to delete this response too.

Sorry about that OtheHill. It was me. The language got me a little annoyed .

I'll let your post stand so that if Aussie comes back he can see how much esteem he is held.

If he comes back again and acts like that again I would suggest you PM Justin to have him banned.
