I am on Windows 7 64bit.
I can't access the control panel or HP Docking stations.
Message: Explorer.exe: Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

I have run Malware Bytes, Super Anti Spyware and windows Security Essentials,,, none of the programs find any malware or viruses.
I tried to download the Beta Malware Bytes for rootkits but receive an error message the QtGui4.dll is missing.

I can access the net but my toolbar icon indicates I'm not connected.
I can get to a command prompt but have no idea what to do.
Am I infected or experiencing another issue?

Thank you for any help.-M.

Thank you.

I walked through all of the steps and now have permissions to everything.
One last question, since this started I can't seem to keep internet connection over 2-5 minutes. I have Comcast and the infinity router.
I have tried unplugging router and countless reboots, etc...
Windows Troubleshooting can't identify the problem.
Any suggestions?

Thank you again,
-M.

Do you have any other computers on the same router?
If so do they work fine?

There is one other computer connected via wireless. The main computer is connected via cables.

I have changed out the router and up until 3 days ago (when I lost permissions) I was able to keep a connection.
Since the permission problems, the connection is barely staying for a few minutes (sometimes seconds).

I am typing this in notepad so I can just copy the text. All cables appear to be tight.
When I initially lose connection, the tray icon may still state that access is fine.

Thank you. -M.

Both lose connection

Well, if both computer are having same problem it must be something wrong outside of those machines.
I suggest you start with calling your ISP.
