I will assume you are using windows...
Restart your computer in Safe Mode (press F8 when it starts loading and select that option from the menu that shows up)
When it is loaded, log in as Administrator, then go to Control Panel > User Accounts > your username, and change the account type to Administrator.
Done! Restart and boot normally.

Cant access my control pannel

"Canceled due to restrictions on your computer" means that the administrative account has not allowed you to access all features. See to it that whoever else uses that computer knows that you are blocked out, at least one of them is the admin.

you're victim of some kind of mailware that restrict administrative rights it is certainly the cause of your email problem too.

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!
