    Hell Tech guys,
    I made a partition on my laptop, Compaq, hp, run with windows 7,
    One partition for the kids to play games, I tried to download some software, even Skype unfortunately not willing to accept, I downloaded it on the Admin account, then put in drive D, and tried to install it from there, as well still rejecting to complete the installation process, how to solve this please?

    your prompt reply will be highly appreciated,
    Kind regards,

    Can you possibly explain a little more clearly? Are you trying to run programs from a standard acct?

    Most software will work under any account once installed, so you only need to install it under the admin account and it should become available to other users on the computer as well.

    This is true....but I have had it ask me for a Administrator password when using a User account when opening certain programs that may need admin privileges to run....perhaps that's what the OP is referring to
