How to get Administrator Rights

If you require Administrator rights to add or remove applications , a utility is available via the University Software Delivery Service (Novell ZCM) 

This service is available only to NUI Galway laptops and desktops that have a wired (LAN)  and wireless connection to the University network.

You are responsible for any malicious software installed on your device. Please exercise caution in installing third party applications. 

  • Go to My Computer
  • Open the NUI Galway applications folder (if you do not see NUI Galway Applications install the ZCM Agent here )
  • Open ISS Utilities :
