:mad:Says "please login with administrator privileges and try again" in an error box. I'm the only user ON my comp. I'm set up as admin I've deleted and reinstalled. I can't run BF at all in any form. It worked about a month ago maybe 2 months but day before yesterday I tried to start up and it wouldn't go. Anyone know how to fix this?
This has already been raised on another thread. This is likely an issue with punkbuster and a particular piece of spyware called VX2.betterinternet, here is the thread.
See how you go with that.
Nope I can't get BF to run at all. It won't even boot up. This seems to have just started.
Tried it allready I've done everything but wipr the drive it's on and start from scratch. Thats next step.
call customer support first.
So we can assume that you have checked for spyware, viruses etc then?
With 3 different virus scans and 2 different spyware scans.
Then it may be that some program has changed your user access privileges in WinXP without informing you, you can user the control panel Administrative tools function to reset them and see if that helps.
Start the computer in Safe Mode and log in as Admin (all XP/200 machines create a super user called admin) Then go to Control Panel => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy. This will open up the Local Security setting window. Expand the Local Policies folder and select User Rights Assignment. This will bring up a list of security settings for the computer. You will need to add the user that will be launching the game to have the following privileges. If the user is logged in while making changes, the user must be logged out and back in for the changes to take effect.
* Debug Programs * Load and unload device drivers * Manage auditing and security log * Modify Firmware environment values * Profile Single Process
This is done by double clicking on the setting and then the "Add User or Group" button. You can either type the user or group name into the field or click on advanced to select from a list. If you select advanced, you may need to click on the "Object Types" button and make sure all 3 boxes are checked. Then click "OK". Click on the "Find Now" button to generate a full list of all users and groups on the system. Highlight the user you want to add the rights to and click "OK". Keep clicking "OK" untill you are back at the Local Security Settings window. Repeat this process for the rest of the list.
It's quite simple to do so see how that goes.
How you make it start in safe mode intentionally? I have gone out of my way to AVOID safe mode. I did all that stuff in regular mode but it didn't help.
