Gateway gt5468 comes up with windows error box"


Explorer is the main "program" of Windows. (the actual windows and folders and icons and such are run by this software program called Explorer which works with other pieces of software to make up the Windows operating system. Having a recurring error with explorer is not a good thing.
Take the following steps to restart your explorer
-Hit Ctrl-Alt-Del and select Start Task Manager if it doesn't automatically pop up.
-Go to the processes tab and make sure explorer.exe is not there, if it is, right click and shut down the process.
-Click File-->New Task(Run)
-type in explorer and hit enter, this should restart the explorer.
-If possible then try running a full virus scan as well as run a scan disk with fix any errors checked

If you cannot get to this process I would recommend backing up all of your important documents and re-installing windows.
I hope this helps in some way, thank you.

No rights to run control panel requires new instal need media


1. to gain rights do the following.

The built-in Administrator account is hidden from Welcome Screen when a user account with Administrator privileges exists and enabled. In Windows XP Home Edition, you can login as built-in Administrator in Safe Mode only. For XP Professional, press CTRL + ALT + DEL twice at the Welcome Screen and input your Administrator password in the classic logon window that appears.
To have the Administrator account displayed in the Welcome Screen, try one of these methods:

Open TweakUI and click "Logon" option in the left pane. Put a checkmark against the option "Show Administrator on Welcome Screen". Click OK to close TweakUI. Logoff and see if Welcome Screen lists Administrator login. Changes are immediate and you can use the Winkey + L to switch back to Welcome Screen to see Administrator account is listed.
Use this procedure to hide/unhide any user account from the Welcome Screen. Please remember, you can still login to a hidden account using CTRL+ALT+DEL classic logon method, but cannot Fast User Switch to a hidden user account.
Method 2 - Manual registry edit
  • Click Start, Run and type Regedit.exe
  • Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ CurrentVersion \ Winlogon \ SpecialAccounts \ UserList
  • Use the File, Export option to backup the key
  • Create a new DWORD Value named Administrator
  • Double-click Administrator, and set 1 as its data
  • Exit the Registry Editor.
For Windows XP Home Edition While you can configure Windows XP Home Edition to show Administrator account in the Welcome Screen, you cannot login as Administrator in Normal mode. Visit the following link for more information:
