My System Specs

Default Override/crack Admin rights.

Hi,
My office PC has XP SP3. It is damn slow despite Core2duo E8400 with 4GB ram. I tried installing ccleaner but got a message "you have to be logged in as admin" to install. Is there any way to override this admin rights? I just want my pc to be faster, it is very frustrating working on slow PCs at work.
I can use pendrive/boot from DVD. It is tricky.

Thanks.

Hey i created a "guest account" on my home PC, logged into that account, tried installing ccleaner.exe and i got the same message "you have to be logged in as admin". Tried the portable version of ccleaner and it worked. I guess I just found out a workaround coz the only thing i wanna do at work is install ccleaner to make the damn comp run faster.

Going to take a lot more than that. Ccleaner can help but it would be best to reformat.

Just call the IT department and tell them to fix your slow computer.

Delete your porn first.

Playing with Admin rights is cause for dismissal at a lot of places. So is installing unauthorized software.
