Hi!
I'm going nuts!!!!  I'm the Domain, Enterprise Admin and I'm trying to install "Learnkey 70-290" and each time it gives me the error "To install this program requires Administrator priviledges, wich you do not have".  I've try creating a local admin account; it didn't work.  I've turn off the UAC and still dosen't work...  I've try the right click, run as administrator without any succes either...
I'm out of options

answer from Netman66:

Run CMD as Administrator.
Run this command: net user Administrator /active:yes
Open Regedit and fix this entry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System::

FilterAdministratorToken = 0
