Use a standard account when operating a computer on a daily basis. Using a privileged account puts you at greater risk from malware, viruses and ransomware. UT and Engineering policy dictates that you do not use a privileged account on a daily basis. If there is a need for an administrator privileged account, contact your IT staff. Based on the need, temporary administrator access or a secondary account with administrative privileges can be set up for required tasks.
For CII, NASCENT and Dean's office users: Fill outthis

Once you have received your admin account, follow these IMPORTANT instructions for Installing Applications.
