I confess to having used this site before, without registering. I managed to find a thread which helped me solve a problem many months ago, so thankyou for that assistance.
I now have a new problem which I cant fix, and despite trawling thro the threads I cant find the exact help I need. Im running XP Home on a Dell machine.
Through my own stupidity, I managed to pick up virus problems on 11 Nov, (I had lowered my protection while trying to solve connection problems with a solid US contact....all for a game of backgammon!..sheesh!). Anyway, yes, you guessed it, I forgot to put them back up again and picked up trouble from somewhere.
I managed to get rid of all the virus problems with BitDefender (I find it very easy to use), but the worm has changed my settings, so that I repeatedly get 'This Application has been blocked by your System Administrator' when I try to add/remove prorams and my control panel has disappeared. I get the same message when I try to use regedit or msconfig.
Although I have successfully set up another user and can enjoy full functionality as this new user, its bugging me that I cant fully fix the previous user.
Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. If not, please keep up the good work that you are doing......its comforting to know that for every system vandal out there, there are at least two of you trying to help people for free.
