I have windows XP running on a new desktop computer that is network
thru a common hub to a laptop that is running windows ME. The desktop
access the internet thru a 2-way satellite connection and the laptop
access the internet thru the desktop UNLESS my wife has dialed into
the VPN at work. Everything works fine, she is able to maintain the
vpn connection while surfing the web thru the satellite.
I recently tried to install a program (Real Player) on the XP desktop
and it told me that I did not have admin privledges. I checked and
double checked, and I do, so maybe there is a problem with the
When setting up the network (I mention the network only because it is
the only thing I have added to the desktop recently and the problem
seemed to appear about the same time) I had to maintain settings on
the laptop because of the VPN.
How can I make XP know I have admin privs?
I have thought about "repairing" my XP installation.
