    I lost my admin privileges in Bad Postgres Installation


    Hi guys, any clue about this issue ?

    Please help bad installation and now I cannot access Windows files


    At the first time (I didnt the real cause above), I did format of my win8.

    After that, the second time I install HoldemManager2 and ( ) I lost my admin privileges again.

    Any clue before I start format again ?


    In safe mode I can't create users...

    Also in safe mode I tried uninstall HM2... win8 says: "contact admin"

    I disable the postgress service, but even this is not working...

    Try adding "Take Ownership" to the Shell:

    Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 8

    See if you can elevate your Privileges with that. It may be the permissions for the whole folder where you have these files stored.

    This is sounding like a Virus, which will deny the modifications you will need to delete an unwanted program. Also, it should be 127.0.0.1, which is local host, not 127.0.0.2 which I do not know what that is. I just checked, default Local Host is 127.0.0.1, not 2.

    I just ran the Take Ownership Reg, and it added no problem. So, I think you have a Virus.

    Just on whatever files you are having trouble with... "postgres" I'm going to have to look that up...

    Is this what you installed?

    PostgreSQL Overview | EnterpriseDB

    You may want to see if you can find a new version of MDAC.

    No worries, sometimes that's the only viable solution. But it clearly puts an exclamation mark next to this PostgreS program.

    This is absolutely not clear in fact, really i do not mean to be rude but:

    Postgresql is an enterprise level database running in thousands of systems
    (i think i'm on the low side with thousands) and running on my own windows 8 system also.
    Maybe how HoldemManager2 manage the postgresql installation is the problem,
    can't say for sure, i do not use HoldemManager2 ...

    I would return it to factory specs & go from there.
    I have lots of needed exe files backedup.
