How can the administrator change system policies in Windows Vista Home Premium?

William Albrecht August 30, 2010

I’m using Windows Vista Home Premium and when trying to install certain software, or remove certain software, I get an error message stating that the “administrator has set certain policies to prevent this action”.

I’m the administrator and how do I change this seeing as Windows Vista Home Premium does not support system policies?

    go to run and type secpol.msc and hit enter so this will open local security policy. Select local policies then secutrity options. Scroll down to "user account control" settings of which there are several. Diabling the very first setting and see if will worke for you.

    I think secpol.msc do not function in vista home premium. The only way is to believe in the system which is under Vista PRO.
    so someone has to edit "wsecedit.dll" which verifies windows vista version
    this is the key

    HKLMSYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlProductOptio ns
    with the entries

    Regedit and find the section of the Vista registry

    Change the value of ConsentPromptBehaviorAdmin to a "0" from the listed "2"
