Vista-Run as Administrator?

Recommended Posts

Yes run as admin, however it should auto run it as admin. If not theres a chance the items may not be deleted.

Just right click on the exe and click run as administrator and then update and rescan to be safe

Thanks for the response. :)

The reason I ask is a friend didn't run it as administrator.

When the scan started it was working (spinning cursor) for the first 15 seconds, and then the time started advancing.

It didn't show any items found until the end of the scan.

Seven items were removed from active memory, the registry and so on. (Rapid Antivirus)

This is not what I experience on my Vista system. Maybe it was because of the infection.

I did tell her to reboot, update, and rescan running as administrator.

No items found. :)
