Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I am running Windows XP Home Edition on a Dell Dimension 3000
I need help in resolving the following issues...
1/ When I try to access System Restore in MSCONFIG or Start>All Programs>Accessories> System Tools...all I get is a blank white screen So I went into Control Panel>System to make sure it is enabled and it is..
2/ Whenever I click on a Program or File I get the following message..."Windows cannot access the specified device,path,or file.You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"...
So I went into Control Panel>User Accounts and was horrified to find my ADMINISTRATOR'S ACCOUNT had somehow changed to and was labeled as a LIMITED ACCOUNT and my GUEST ACCOUNT had totally disappeared....
I have run the following tests...Avast Anti-Virus,Spybot,Ad-Aware,Advanced WindowsCare V2 Personal,CCleaner,Spyware Doctor,Windows Defender,and Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool......However NO VIRUSES or any Other Issues were found for that matterCan Someone please offer me some suggestions/solutions to these major problems
Thanks In Advance for any help I receive on these issues
