Vista appears to have changed all my user accounts to 'Standard'
I have three user accounts on my computer. My main account and my work account are (or should be) set as 'Administrator'.
My CAD program on the work account has stopped working properly. I discovered that this is because it is unable to write files to C:\program files, which it needs to do. I checked the account settings and discovered that the work account is set as a 'Standard' account.
I logged off, logged into my main account and went to the User Accounts page via Control Panel. The first thing I noticed was that my main account also says 'Standard'. I then clicked on the link to the main User Accounts page.
On the main accounts overview page all 3 accounts are listed with their pictures; the main account & work account are labelled as 'Administrator'; the other account is labelled as 'Standard'
If I click on each one in turn, the radio button for each of them is set to 'Standard'.
I can select 'Administrator' using the radio button, but the 'apply' button is greyed out, so it can't be changed. I assume that this is because my main account is also set to Standard, and so I do not have administrator privilages anywhere on the computer!
What's going on??
This is the last thing I need, since I'm working on a CAD project with a deadline at the end of this month!
