Abusript instalation could not open registry


It wasn't started with administrative rights. If this is in windows 7, 8, or 10, right click and run the installer with administrative rights. If the program still can't access the registry, it is likely that a registry file it requires is locked down by a security program (anti-virus, anti-rootkit, anti-spyware, anti-adware, anti-malware). Try disabling these programs before installing.

Cannot get microfix usb digital microscope to work


That's probably a Windows privileges problem; only the administrator can write to the Program Files folder. Log in to the computer as administrator, open the MicroCapture program, find the settings for the file locations, and set up a folder in your (User Name) Documents for the MicroCapture files. Alternatively, modify the permissions for the MicroCapture folder (not recommended; do this only if MicroCapture won't let you use a different location).

My device manager is disable by administrator


You have to login with an administrator account to access the device manager. If you don't remember your administrator password then download a boot disk called "KON BOOT" boot with the CD, you will not need to enter any administrator password to login. Once logged in change the administrator password to whatever you want it to be.

Please rate my solution to show your appreciation!

Whenever I open my microsoft word documents and try to edit it or even start a new document, it says the modification is not allowed because the selection is locked.


An evil virus has set an ACL (Access Control List) list entry prohibiting you from modifying your own documents - or changed the ownership of your documents to another account on the system.

If the computer upon which your documents reside is not yours, consult the system administrator, who may have reset file or directory permissions. If the PC is your personal box - virus/trojan horse/worm/rootkit/malware/spyware residual damage.

To repair ACL damage, use MSDOS command cacls. How:
1) login as "Administrator"
2. START>RUN> cacls
or bring up an MSDOS command prompt (from cmd.exe) and type in cacls /?

Anyway, the problem described above is a OS/System problem.
The only way I can think of that MSWord would prohibit modifying your own docs is that
you recently upgraded MSWord to Office2010, and your docs were created with an old, incompatible version of MSWord - but doesn't Microsoft have backward compatibility for
older .DOC files?

Trojan horse Generic 19.BASL


Download Malware Bytes, it is a free program; Install and run it. It will clean most malware if it has not been on the PC for too long. Give many of these malware programs enough time and they will modify the operating system files and prevent Windows from performing Windows Updates and browser downloads. If you can still install from a flash drive, get Malware Bytes or Avast.

If these cleaners do not do the job, chances are that you will have to re-install your operating system from a recovery disk. The major problem with that is that you are restoring to software that was on your computer when you took it out of the box. Hopefully, you've been doing some backups.

I can not edit my account information.


Hi there, I would like to clarify If you are the administrator on the computer your trying to edit your account

If you are the administrator of the computer, and If your computer is part of a network at an organization such as a school, government agency, or a business, your organization's system administrator might have disabled or even removed certain settings by using Group Policy. Group Policy is a feature of Windows that lets system administrators manage users' access to Windows features. If you suspect that Group Policy is preventing you from changing a setting that you need to access, contact your system administrator.

OR

If your computer is not part of a network, a user with administrator privileges might have modified Group Policy on your computer to remove access to the settings. In this case, contact the users who are administrators on your computer to modify the settings you'd like to change.

Google search redirects me to another site...how do I fix this?


That's a classic sign of a virus and or spyware.They redirect you to a site they control and try to get you to buy their virus protection.Reboot in "safe mode" and run your virus and spyware software.Make sure it's the deep scan so it clears your Restore files too.Also check your User Accounts for a "new" administrator.The virus will log on as administrator and control your computer so you can't delete the virus files.Let me know if this helps?

What to do Microsoft XP Service Pack 3 Error Message Access Denied. Step by step please I,m not to techie inclined.I tried to download after disabling anti virus as Microsoft suggested but still access...


Hello and thank you for using Fixya services.

From the sounds of your issue, it may be that you have malware or a trojan. You can run a scan using this free malware/antivirus protection. I am not sure which antivirus you are currently using but this one is free and has excellent reviews. You will need to uninstall your current antivirus protection first before installing this one.

Malware/trojans can disable your antivirus programs and make it look like everything is running smoothly. This would also block Windows updates. By running a thourall scan with another program, you can get the malware out. Even the best antivirus can be disabled.

Please let me know i I can be of further assistance
