barrytone Posted May 20, 2006 Share Posted May 20, 2006 Right, here's my problem and what I've done so far... I'm trying to run a program from sysinternals called Filemon (http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Filemon.html), which requires Debugger privileges in order to run. My system is running Windows XP, SP2. Everything is fully up to date. My user account is in the Administrators group and I still get the "Your account does not have the debug programs privilege" error. I added user account to the "debugger Users" group in Computer management > system tools > local users and groups > users. But, after a restart, the error still remained. I tried it the other way round and went to groups and added my user that way. Still nothing. So I went into the local security policy (secpol.msc) and added my user account to the "Debug programs" policy in Local policies > User Rights Assignment > Debug programs. I restarted for the changes to take effect, and my user accout was no longer in the Debug Programs policy. I tried again and the same thing happened. I've also tried to use an application called "Unlocker", that requires debugger privileges. I get simaler errors with that. Also, the Filemon and Unlocker applications work fine on my laptop (XP Home, SP2), so I'm ruling out the application as being the problem. Any ideas? I've spent hours trying to figure this out today, and it's really starting to get to me :? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
