    Somehow I have gotten the admin controls activated on my PC. when I try to
    use a CD to save a word file, the computer tells me I do not have the admin
    authority to do that.
    this is my personal computer, not networked with any others, been using it
    for years. how do I get out of this? I am unable to back up my documents.
    thanks

    This is not an Office question. I would start with a newsgroup for your
    operating system.

    You can't save a Word document direct to a CD from within Word, if that's
    what you are trying to do. Save the document to your HDD and then burn it to
    the CD.
