    Thanks Vortash, I truly appreciate your interesting and self-explanatory reply, I tried to fix the problem through login in as Administrator but it did not work as well, and also I tried to change the security permissions from Registry Editor> but the result was the same.. anyway I think that I am going to make another attempt to repair windows.

    Thanks once again / Ahmed

    Hi Ahmed the only thing I can suggest is that you have the security program .. blocking this application for some reason .. but I guess you know that what I don't understand is why it should there is no reason unless the site where you got it from was a known philsher site or that there is a virus in the program but I would have thought it would have told you that and not just referred you to an administrator response .The only other thing I can think of is that if you have more than one user account on that computer .. try just logging off and not a shut down an see if you get two account logos appear maybe the place who installed the program has put you in as a second user and therefore you should get an administrator logo as well as yours .. if you do log on as the administrator hopefully there isn't a password and effect a shut off of the account user control you should be able to press F1 and get the help menu that will instruct you how to do it that's about all I can think of for this one It's a problem I have never come across before and I will investigate this one for future refference thank you for telling me about it very interesting .. I hope that my suggestions have helped you Regards Vortash
