Firstly, are you actually an admin of the system you are using?

Secondly, what OS are you using? And what drivers are you trying to update?

i think i am the admin of my computer,
before i formatted my comp updating was of no problem but then when i formatted again it gave me an error saying " cant do this due to system effect, contact sys admin"

1. Win 98
2. Video drivers (Geforce 2 MX 400)

win98 dosn't really have admin as such.

i think you need to discribe your problem a lot better. eg what are you trying to do? how are you doing it? specs of pc? error message?

i know you can get a simaler message when certainreg keys are missing but that all depends on what you are trying to do.

Ephraim L,

If the error is "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." It sounds like this system has a policy applied to it, probably using Microsofts' Policy Editor (Poledit). You can check to see if a policy is in place using Poledit. See Poledit (http://www.zisman.ca/poledit/) for information on using the Policy Editor
