You can Re-install the original windows operating system using the CD that came with the PC. just put in the Windows CD then restart the PC,while its starting up, press F8 or F12 repeatedly until it boots from the CD. then follow instructions.

Make sure to save data you need on the Desktop and the OS Drive to another hard drive partition, so you wont loose the data.

you'll need to re-install all extra programs currently on the PC that didnt come with the original software

Unlock web cam from parental lock


Firstly, I would suggest you to login to your administrator account and check if you're able to use the Webcam. Since parental controls cannot be applied on administrator account, it's worth trying to use webcam by logging into your administrator account.

Step 1: Test the webcam by logging into your administrator account
a. Log off from the account where webcam isn't working.
b. Login to your administrator account and check if the webcam works.

If the issue still persists, then the webcam might not be locked by parental controls. It is in use by a different application.

Step 2: Perform a clean boot
A clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts. Visit the link below to know how to perform a clean boot.
