Installing Software

Once your Windows computer is signed in to Active Directory, you may be prompted for "Administrator Rights" when you install new software or update certain packages. This is to ensure that malicious software is not installed in the background without your consent or knowledge.

For business-related software, you have a number of options for installing software that requires administrator rights.
