Try starting the computer in safe mode. To start safe mode press F8 at startup until the menu to select safe mode is displayed. once in safe mode find system restore in start menu . with windows xp select acessory /system tools /system restore. Try doing system restore to an earlier date, before you started having the problem.

If this doesnt work I suggest to reinstall windows on top of the current installation, if done properly it should fix the problem preseving data and most of the drivers and software. Before reinstalling windows do a backup of your data.

cheers

    Naturally do this ONLY after you are sure that no virus is active on your computer performing a complete virus scan with an effective antivirus, as suggested in other comments. The solution above is to troubleshoot problems that persist after getting rid of viruses

Hi,

I want you to immediately switch to another antivirus.You can go for Kaspersky Internet security.It is the best software.
You can download it from HERE
It is a full version trial for 30 days after that you have to buy it.
After you download and install this then run a full system scan remove all the viruses.
Since your pc is effected by viruses even after removing the virus if your pc does not come back to normal then you have to do a system restore or reinstall your operating system.
for system restore go to
Start>accessories>system tools>system restore.
Your problem will be solved.

Goodluck..

Hi Cindy,

A couple of initial corrective steps you can try:
1. Boot into Safe Mode and run your Anti-Virus;
2. Boot into "Last Known Configuration that Worked".

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, pls post back that we can figure something else. Additionally any other information that you could post such as Operating System, Anti Virus used etc.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.

Retrieving administrator settings


Click start Control Panel.


Select "User Accounts and Family Safety," then "User Accounts."


Click "Turn User Account Control on or off."


Remove the check mark next to "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer."


Click "OK."

Set All Accounts to Administrator


Still in the UAC section of Control Panel, select "Manage another account," and click on a user account.


Click on "Change the account type." When working with multiple accounts, some changes can only be made if you and the account holder are both logged in with "Administrator" accounts so you need to change all user accounts to "Administrator."


When you are done making changes, you can change them back to "Standard," but always leave at least one "Administrator" account.


Select the "Administrator" radio button.


Click "Change Account Type" at the bottom right.


Repeat this procedure to change each user account to "Administrator." When all user accounts have been changed, close the Control Panel.

Create a Full Administrator Account


Click "Start" (the Windows Vista icon in the lower left of your screen). In the Search box, type "cmd". Right-click on "cmd," and select "Run as Administrator." An elevated command prompt window will appear.


At the command prompt, type "net user administrator /active:yes", and press "Enter."


Choose a password and assign it to the "Administrator" account, by typing "net user administrator 'password'", where 'password' is your selected password. For instance, if your password is "abc," type "net user administrator abc". Press "Enter."


Type "exit" and press "Enter."


Log off. When you log back into your "Administrator" account, you will have full rights.


hope this helps

Cannot install printer on Windows XP home as administrator. Message says: "you do not have permission to modify the settings for this printer"


Log-into your desktop screen as you usually do. Then click start followed by Control Panel. Once you are in the control panel double click Users. Now select the option to change how users log on to Windows. Options appear, I want you to select the option to enable administrative rights. Once selected click Apply followed by ok. Now shutdown your computer and power on again. Log in and now try to install your printer. Please if you need more information give me a shout.

Take care!

How do i login on as administrator on my computer?


Login With the Administrator Account in Windows XP Professional

Click the "Start" menu and then click "Log Off."

Click "Switch User" when the prompt screen opens.

Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete."

Click on "Administrator" when the "Log on to Windows" screen pops up. Type in the administrator password, if applicable.

Click "OK." You will now be logged in as the administrator.



Log On as An Administrator in Windows Vista

Start your computer and allow it to continue through its startup process. By default your computer will simply load directly to the primary user account (usually the administrator account), but if there are multiple users on the system it will load to the account login screen.

Use the mouse to click on the administrator account from the list of available accounts to log on. This step is only necessary if you've customized Windows Vista with more than one account or you have set the operating system to load the login screen first.

Enter the password required in the password field to log on to the administrator account.

Click the "OK" or "Log On" button once you have entered the password. This button may be labeled differently depending on the version of Windows Vista or any GUI (graphical user interface) changes you may have made.
Log on as an administrator from within the Windows Vista environment by clicking on "Start" and then "Log Off." As soon as you have logged off, you will be returned to the login screen where you can choose the administrator account from the available list.
