Specs: Windows XP
Currently there is no tech personal in the company so I have to reformat my XP pro machine when it crashes.

We are using server 2003 to run a application software which need to install locally and run by using a shortcut from the server drive.

Login in is no problem to access files and directory, but I realised that my account is just a user which can't install antivirus and update registry setting etc etc...

May I know how can I change myself to administrator rights

Log in to the local machine not to the domain as Administrator and install the anti virus software.
Then restart the computer and login to the domain as before.

Thanks for the reply.

That seems to be one working way.

But is it possible to change myself to administrator rights instead of users?

I have the password to server as administrator so basically I can change anything there right?

It is not suggested to alwais work with Domain Admin rights for security reasons.

I guess, there is a Policy configured at the server, that denies users to install software also for security reasons.

Thanks for the warning but I really need that to update the registry for the customized application.

Doing it in local administrator works for the antivirus but not for the customized application...

Are there other users, which can run that application?
If so, compare the user settings of one of this users in ADS with the one, that didn't work and make that user member of maybe a group, the other users are member of and check the group policy settings for the not working user.
