Hello bleeping computer fixers:

Last night I was using my computer as I normally do and next thing I know, I was unable to open Firefox. Then tried playing some music and same thing. Apparently every .exe file has been denied access to. I thought it might have just been a temporary glitch so I tried restarting and I don't even have access to do that! I would do a scan but obviously that doesn't open either.

A little help would go a loooong way!!

Many thanks in advance :thumbsup:

Can you Boot into Safe Mode?

You may have to pull your Power lead out if it wont let you shut down?

If you can get into Safe Mode try running a Scan from there.

Possible, at least in Safe Mode few things are running, so it may give a better idea?

From Safe Mode he may be able to do a System Restore? He can't do any thing at the Moment.

Try to a ctrl+alt+del at the welcome screen and login as Administrator and try it then. If it happens under administrator, then your machine is infected with something.

Funny thing, the computer shuts down and restarts with the task manager. Safe mode works. What would you recommend I scan with first?

First thing I would do is try to do my suggestion and create a new account. This happened at work to a co-workers machine, and his profile was corrupted.

Download dial a fix and run the repair permissions from the tools menu at the bottom.

I agree with the suggestion to create a new user account.
If everything works from it, you could do a system restore back to a time just before the issue started. After the reboot for system restore, try everything from your desktop. And if that solves the problem, you can then update and run your scanners.

If you read the text for the beta it explains that. I have used it many times with only positive results.

Follow up- I had one machine that would not install SP3. I ran the permissions tool and it installed with no problem.
