      if the computer is not yours or you are in school, company then you have to talk to the administrator.
      installing unauthorised software is a disciplinary offence, you can have problems.

      iTunes has to install an helper agent and drivers for i-Devices in order to detect them.

      Even if you did manage to install it without administrative I’m not sure you would be able to sync an iPod.

    Sometimes the admin set a password for the account “Administrator” 
    It is possible

    Mulder, that’s obviously not his only option here. 

    Dandu, is hacking the administrator an option? You can use OPHCrack to find the administrators password. Simply download OPHCrack and burn it to a disk, then put it in the disk drive and reboot. Chose to boot from the disk and you can crack the password there. Read more on this method here. I recommend this method since you can retrieve the password without having to change it (therefor the admin won’t know it happened). 

    There are a variety of methods of hacking a Windows account, read about them here.
    If you’re using Windows XP, reboot in safe mode and login as “administrator”, this is a built in account with administrative privileges (go figure). If the installer permits it, you should be able to install this software using this account. However, some installers prevent installation via safemode.

      lol. Now all of the kids in his school are going to be running that!

    You can’t do that. Why don’t you just ask the Administrator to enter the password for you? That’s really the only option here.

    Dandu,

    what operating system or version of Windows are you using?

    Chances are, that the Administrator password is blank. Try to run the itunes.exe file as Administrator (right-click file and select Run as…) and when asked for a password, leave the field blank.
