I am trying to unistall Photo POS Pro from a machine I am an administrator on. I have tried doing it lagged on under my user name and in safe mode as administrator. I get an error message that says I do not have sufficent privleges. Please see administrator. Is there a way to set the administrators privleges in XP? Can someone help?

Hi, this may help and it may not, just look to see don't necessarily change anything yet.....

Start up your computer normally, then go to "star", "Control Panel", "user accounts", and then check out your profile.

If at all in this time you get lost, don't change anything you don't know what it is, either leave it or just check back here

P.S. When you get into your "user accts", make sure your profile is set to administrator, if not click on in and open it and change your profile to admin. If you get confused just ask more question here :whistling::blink:

I hope this helped,

Cheese

It may be that some aspect of the program you want to remove is still running. Sometimes there is a background process or service that does not stop when you shut down the main program. Xp does not think that anyone has the privelege of removing a running program by use of an uninstaller. Make sure that all components of the program have been stopped by conventional means, and then try the uninstall again.

You were right. There must have been something running. I ended up manually shutting down everything that was listed as a user process and then uninstalling the application. Does anyone know how to get a list of processes that are running in the background eeven though the application has been shut down?

Sysinternals free Process Explorer is a help: http://www.microsoft...ssExplorer.mspx (Download link at bottom of page) Take a little time to become familiar with all the processes that are displayed. For a list of places to check out processes, see my Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/ To visit the "links" just copy and paste the URLs to your browser address bar in a new tab.
