Sounds like someone tapered with your computer while you weren't looking lol

You may need to perform a system restore to get control back.

You can restore the system by placing your windows CD in the CDROM drive normaly drive D:

Restart the computer

Go to your BIOS

Make sure the boot sequence is set to

1st Boot Device - CDROM D:
2nd Boot Device - Primary HardDrive C:
3ed Boot Device - Floppy A:

Or CDROM,C,A

then save and exit

restart the computer

you should see ( Windows is now starting your computer )

and the install process will begin.

once windows is installed and you've put your key in

you should go to the windows update site to download ALL critical updates and service packs

Then you'll want to load driver software for your computer,

Install Chrome or Firefox. I know this is not a fix, but they are faster and use less resources. Besides only MS seems to be hanging on to it. I just installed Windows 8 today, and did not see it mentioned on IE 10.

Cant access files...


Boot up into safe mode, logging in as the Administrator, not your account.

Go into the security settings for the folder and change the permissions. The easiest thing would be to give Everyone full access. Don't forget to promulgate the permissions to the directory tree as well.

Good luck

God Bless

Cant log in windows!


Restart the computer and as soon as it starts booting up start tapping on F8 key on your keyboard.
The computer would show you advanced boot options.. select "Safe mode" from the list.
When it asks for Administrator's password, leave the password blank and hit enter .. If you have not set any password for the safemode (normally many users don't) then it would log you on and you can go to the control panel and reset the administrator's password or you can even create a new user profile.
Once you complete the above process, restart the computer and let it boot normally.
Now try logging in with the new password or the new user account that you might have created while in the safe mode.

Let me know if that works for you. All the best.
And yes, Do not forget to rate this solution :)

Srinivas.

New Computer with Vista shuts down by itself when not in use


To get to the Event Viewer, click the start button and in the search box at the bottom, type

eventvwr

and press Enter. Click Windows Logs and check the Application and System logs for any errors that occur when the computer shuts down.

If your computer was fine before the RAM upgrade, take the RAM back out and leave it alone for a while to see if it shuts down.

Also, change your screensaver.

Control panel


The problem is that you do not have administrator rights on your computer for this user. Logout and then log back in as the administrator. Then you will be able to access the control panel user accounts. If you can't log in as the administrator or another user that has administrator rights, there is nothing you can do.

Good Luck!
