    Hi,

    When install roboform 6.9.2 on vista machine, if i try to change what items are enabled for the context menu for browser, under options > context menu, i am not able to do it because of this nessage that appears on the top of the options screen ''DISABLED: Limited Windows User'.

    as now for vista as everyone knows, you do not have admin rights all the time when you log on, programs may prompt for rights etc etc. but for roboform, seems it just determine in the background currently not having admin rights, so can't change.

    even if right click run as admin to install roboform, it is the same.

    anyone having this minor issue?

    Hi,

    I have the same problem.

    However, when I use "Run as administrator" on robotaskicon.exe, it works!

    Steps:
    1) Go to : C:\Program Files\Siber Systems\AI RoboForm
    2) Select robotaskicon.exe
    3) Run as administrator

    Hope this helps.

    u mean when starting the application, run as admin. not when installation right?

    if so great :D , at least whenever i need to change the context menu, i can close the roboform, run as admin the exe, change the context menu, even if next time it starts i cant change the context menu again unless repeat the steps, but thats fine, one dont change the menu so often :D

    Is there way to make roboform run as admin everytime it starts automatically when windows starts? But i guess its not important and not recommended since it doesnt really need admin rights and when need to change context menu, just close and run as admin.

    Thanks ya!

    I write this to the roboform support ticket, after 4 reply to and fro in 2 days, they just dont answer straight, but rather insisting i print screen before any explanation even when i told them im not using my home pc now and i just want explanation of what the message could mean for vista users..:mad:

    Yes, I meant starting the application.

    From what I read at the microsoft communities, I don't think you can "run as admin" by default at startup.
