Can't install programs on school-computer

gforce339
Hello,

I tried to install daemon tools on my computer but I do not have the administrator rights to do so. Is there anyway that I can bypass the admin-rights and install the program anyway? I am not suppose to mount anything illegal, just my own files. Please help me.

    Sorry, I meant to say 'Hard of Thinking', the more politically correct term.

    they have these restrictions for a reason. how do they know you're not trying to install keyloggers, tools to hack other systems, etc.

    Do you have $300? buy a computer and put them on your own computer.

    the school would just remove them when they found them, probably after they removed you from the school. Or at the very least, removed your access to school computers.

    First, you will need a copy of Winternals which you can download from any torrent site like Prirate Bay or Torrent search. You will need a P2P app like Azureus.
    Once you have this tool insert the cd into the cd rom and reboot the system so it will boot from the cd. And click on Locksmith and change the admin account password.

    And P2P programs does not "work" in school (I have tried a couple of times).

    Some programs does not even need admin rights, ?f you put them in /Documents and Setting/[USER] you can install those which do not change the registry such as Super Mario or P2P's, altough you need to open a port for that and well... :) And if you start the program on another way you will still need the admin-password.

    This is the admin > TENSTAGY-BDBB15

    Now I only need the password for him and for that I need a cd-rom?

    Also to install a virtual cd-rom program I need to have administrator rights.

    And why would I contact the administrator? He does not belive that I will only use it for "non-illegal" things and thus he will not install it. I could ask him to install daemon tools or something else but hello?

    Go to the store and buy yourself a computer.
    The school computers are for learning, not whatever you want to do.
    New desktop systems start at around $300, a used system can be found for around $50. Look in the newspaper, look at recycle centers(computer), look on Ebay? Lots of options.
    But you should not hack your school system for any reason. AND the best place to obtain access to the system is through the schools support. It is blocked for a erason, could be policy, could be legal, could be preventative measures. It is not up to you, as you are not the only one to use the system, and it is the schools property! It is there for your benefit, not as your personal toy!

    Since you're trying to illegally hack a school computer, I can't say I blame the admin for thinking that you may use these tools for illegal purposes. Spoiled kids who think they somehow have a "right" to do whatever they want on a machine that doesn't belong to them should be smacked upside the head and banned from computers for a few months to give them time to actually use their brains to *think*

    You seem to forget that you are the student... and that you are subject to the authority of the sys admin of your school. To do what you want may put the school in jeopardy of breaking the law, and ultiumately YOU could end up in a cold jail cell... is that your intention?

    You are foolish and unwise to try to do what you want to do... its good that you do not have access to P2P and that the pc does not have a cd-rom.

    Perhaps you can, while you are asking all this, furnish us with your name, and the school's name so we can report you...

    If you want to do that stuff, but your OWN pc as previously recommended...but dont be surprised if you are hacked and your pc doesnt work anymore... then dont come a crying here that you been hacked. It is your type that have caused havoc throughout the world. You need to grow up.

    We're getting a much better class of cracker wannabes today. Your spelling is excellent, as is your punctuation. You're much better than tootsy or jamesatmasionverde. james can't spell and tootsy's grammar is atrocious. I'm proud to talk smack to such a high caliber of adolescent loser. Keep talking nice to us and maybe we'll send you some lingerie ads from an old Sears catalog, or photos of native girls from National Geographic. What fun!

    It doesn't matter what you want to mount. If it is disallowed by your administrator, there is a reason.

    Please do not attempt to alter the computer. It is NOT "your" computer but instead a productivity device that your school provides you access to. If it were YOUR computer, you would have admin access.

    As a worker for a pretty nice size library system, I can tell you... these are the kinds of people that keep me employed... and awake at night. We use lock down software, group policies, disabling boot from cd drives in the BIOS, etc... not to be hard asses, not to be control freaks... but to protect the library's investment. I can't tell you how many machines I've had to rebuild over the years, cause know it all smarty pants crackerwannabes like this trashed it. IT'S NOT YOUR MACHINE... use it as it's layed out in your school's policy! case closed!

    I dont know about all programs but I was at school one day and every once in a great while the internet wont block what you go and I went to limewire.com and downloaded limewire. no firewall blocked me from downloading and it worked. at my school they have deepfreeze on the computers, that deletes what ever you do when the computer turns off and comes back on but we do have drives for saving computer work so I copied all the limewire files on that drive and the songs and then when I get on a computer I copy all the files on a new folder on the desktop and then open limewire and it works.

    A Firewall wouldn't block you from downloading it over HTTP, it certainly should have been set up to block you from using it though.

    Now you know how massive a hole there is in their system, you should do them the favour of telling them.

    actions have created: your administrator at school will see these holes, plug them up, and tighten things worse than before, all because some little wise guy is trying to abuse thier computer privileges. Yes, it IS a privilege, not a right, to use someone elses computer. And just like I wouldn't want you to hit every pothole in the street with my car if you borrowed it, or smoke/drink/eat, spilling crap all over said car, I would hope you would respect my property while 'borrowing' it. OK, whew I feel better now, thank you for letting me vent!

    Did I learn anything? Well, no not really, I feel that this is my first path to the criminal way of life and well you have to start with the little things... I'm just kidding.

    I already knew it was stupid - heck, I even knew that I was dumb; and I was, but I still did it. Maybe I did it because I really have not anything else to do and I wanted to prove that even I could do something? What do you guys think? And in a way I proved that, because they said that I had "talent" but this was the wrong way to use it (and "talent" in the way that I know how to google... :)).

    They invested a couple of millions in this school just so every student could have a computer and use it in his/her school work, which is great. That was the reason that I even go in this school, and in a way I don't feel that good considering I abused my rights.

    Thats it

Unfortunately, no, I wont help you bypass the admin settings. But haters, thats what school's for. To mess around. No doubt you learn more by doing bad stuff than by attending lessons. Don't hate me for saying it, its true.

    I don't have to go out and sell crack to learn that it is a bad lifestyle choice for me. Perhaps the lessons learned when we screw up are more deeply impressed upon us than those we learn through others mistakes. That doesn't mean we learn more by doing bad things, but that we learn the lessons better.
