How do I get "Administrator Privileges"?
 
There are things that I cannot uninstall from my system. One in
particular is P2P Networking(Kazaa Media Desktop).

I get the following pop-up:
"Sorry, you do not have enough access rights for this operation"
"Please log on with administrator privileges and repeat uninstallation
process"

Can anyone tell me how to log on with "adminsistrator priviledges", so
I can start uninstalling unneeded apps?
Thanks a lot.

Windows 9x/Me doesn't have user privileges (there is no administrator). Most likely
you have a policy in place. Run REGEDIT and remove the following two keys. If the
policy is such that it won't allow you run REGEDIT, boot to real-mode DOS from floppy
or CD-ROM and merge the following REG file. Copy/paste the text into Notepad and save
as C:\NOPOLICY.REG. Use the command: REGEDIT /S C:\NOPOLICY.REG to merge the file from
DOS.

REGEDIT4
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies]

Another response addressed the Windows 95/98/ME. If you are running Win NT,
2000, or XP, log in as "Administrator" using whatever password has been
assigned. If you do not know the administrator password, download Pettar
Nordahl's very good password cracker and make up either a bootable CD or
bootable floppy. Boot up, and you'll see Linux. Dont' worry. Follow Nordahl's
instructions, and remove the administrator password entirely. Then log in as
administrator and do as you wish. If you are using a corporate computer
(unlikely), be prepared for the wrath of the corporate I.T. types... Ben Myers

Okay, I only get
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Internet
Settings"

Any other ideas?

I actually installed KAZAA over a year ago, and attempted to uninstall
it after it made my (WindowsME)system more unstable than usual.

Right now I'm on the verge of just saving important folders and wiping
the hard drive clean. But since it is a Compaq, it's going to be hell
installing an OS on it.

Thanks.

It'll be well worth your while though. If it's fast enough with more
than 256MB of memory, get Win2000 or XP on it. If not, consider
getting your hands on a copy of Win98 SE. Windows ME is a horribly
unstable piece of poo, unfortunately.

2000 is definately best.

True, fully as crappy as 98SE.

ME is no worse than 98SE (and no better either). People saying bad
things about ME usually have VERY limited experience (many did a
"upgrade" over an old OS, something best avoided). The others are
mindlessly repeating those people.

Windows ME is a platypus part way between the DOS-oriented Win 95/98 and the
NT-kernel operating systems. It had a very short life, and Microsoft employees
have admitted off the record that it is the worst version of Windows released.
The fact that it really messes up the DOS-based capabilities makes it
unacceptable to me. If you really want to limit the DOS stuff, go all the way
with 2000 or XP... Ben Myers

Why would you recommend a 5 year old, virtually unsupported OS (2000) when
XP is vastly superior, particularly with device driver support.
