Hi guys, Now I can't get anything but Firefox to open for me. I can't even run my security software nor can I DL/install any software or reinstall any of it! I need help! None of my Start Bar programs are showing the command tab 'open as administrator' and none of the start bar programs will open except for Firefox browser. I did system restore but I can't do command prompt. I ran MSE, malwarebytes and even Glary Utes 5. I purged everything they found. Now they won't open either. I am at my wit's end and feeling very depressed because now even Wordpad and Notepad won't open for me. I should upgrade but I can't afford to yet. I asked Justin an online computer geek friend for help but he hasn't responded yet. None of the forums can help and I am sick and tired of restarting and restarting. I cannot open Windows Update and I just can't do a clean reinstall, not with 40 years of programs and saved stuff in Henrietta!
The program tabs at the bottom on taskbar are blank and they used to have logos. I can't open any security software or reinstall any software. I can't open any defrags or other administrative programs. The only way I got to BC forums was by using my history lists. I can't use Command Prompt because I cannot 'open as admin' so I can't run chkdsk or sfc/scannow
I know the answer is simple but I'm dashed if I can find it! Can anyone out there assist? quietman7? donetao? Anybody? Without Wordpad or even Notepad, I cannot do what I love- write and post! You must understand that the web and cyberspace are my worlds. I have no family that cares and I have no friends besides you, my online friends to whom I feel closer than I do to my own blood kin! Without the web, I have nothing!
