Applications with insufficient permissions might not run, or they might run but not function correctly (or some features might not be available). If this happens, you can run the application: o In compatibility mode. You can mark the Run this program as an administrator option on the Compatibility tab to automatically elevate privileges when the application is run. o As administrator. To do this, right-click the application shortcut or executable file and choose Run as administrator . Many applications create data files as they run. They may also create temporary files. The user running the application must have sufficient file system permissions to the directories where these files will be created. Error reporting Windows Error Reporting is a feature of Windows that enables Microsoft to be notified of application faults, system unresponsiveness, and kernel defects. Microsoft uses these error reports to diagnose the cause for common problems, then, if possible, improve upon their product or supply troubleshooting techniques. Each time an error occurs, a dialog box will appear that prompts you to report the problem to Microsoft. If you are connected to the Internet and you choose to report the problem, technical information about the problem is sent to Microsoft. If known information about the problem you have experienced is available, you will receive a link to a Web page that contains information about the problem. Service fails to start During or shortly after startup, you might see an error message stating that a service has failed to start. Check the Event Viewer for additional information about which service failed to start and the reason why it did not load. Try using the Services console or the NET START command to manually start the service. If the service is not required, you can change its startup type to Manual in the Services console to prevent it from trying to load during startup. If the service is necessary, use the Services console to make sure that any dependent services are configured to start and have started successfully. Verify that the service is configured with a valid user account and that the password has not changed. If an account other than the Local System account is used, make sure that the service is configured with the correct password (when you change the user account password, you must also change the password configured by the services that use that account).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
