    So our family got a new Vista hard drive for free because our old laptop broke and couldn't be fixed. It's set so that my parents are the admins and everything is set to passwords.

    So my problem is that I installed iTunes and when I try to get into the store it couldn't find a wireless connection but works on my parents when they log in.

    Is there a way I can set it so anyone can use it? Thanks

    P.S. This also happened when I installed Firefox last night but appears to be working now.

    That makes no sense.

    So you can you get on the internet on your account? iTunes doesnt actually LOOK for a wireless connection to get to the store.

    Shifting topic to computer illiterate victim mode...

    If Firefox works, iTunes should work.

    In Vista, there should be an icon in the bottom-left corner that looks like a computer with arcs coming off it. If you double-click that, a list of wireless connections will appear. Find yours and connect to it.

    Maybe your parents should change the account privileges in their admin account?

    Log on to your parents account, find your account, and turn off UAC.
