Hello.  I am having a variety of problems with my computer.  It started a couple of weeks ago, I got that FBI virus.  I was able to get rid of it, but it changed a bunch of permissions on my computer.  I started to correct that one at a time, as I found them.  I should have continued with that.  However, I did a couple of really dumb things, and now there is alot I cannot access.  I tried to do more of a "global" fix to the permissions on the hard drive.  I then activated uac.  The uac has now frozen just about everything (not files, but programs), and I cannot disable it.  I can also not use a number of program files.  The system either just doesnt go to the function when I click on it, or it tells me I don't have permission, or it tells me the parameters are incorrect.  I am really frustrated.  I cannot afford to chuck this old thing and get a new one yet.  I am quite tempted to save some files I need and start all over again to get rid of what I think are registry issues??? 

 

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

I agree with your conclusion. Sounds like at this point it would be easier to simply save your critical data and do a new install. A side benefit would be that if there are any lingering effects of the malware you had, you'll be certain to wipe them away when you format the drive.
