I have tried before to rid myself of this problem, but never any luck. I am being used as a terminal and lose more priviledges all the time until my system is useless. As I am attempting online classes I could really use a working PC. 

Please help!

Please describe what exactly is or isn't working.


What do you mean by "I am being used as a terminal".


It would also help to know the make and model of this computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

IT happens to any PC I connect at my home address, this machine is a Gateway ML6732, (my favorite, of several). I have no sound, my windows  C:\Windows\winsxs\ directory is 6.49 GB's, 46,414 files (over 3,000 files are deeply hidden), 12,028 folders. the only virus ever reported with any of many anti-virus programs was on time,

[  Trojan:wysogot.g ]. I believe that I am under the control of someones server, I get  A "TPM has a problem or no TPM" , during POST at boot up, there are hundreds of DOTxml files that don't look right to me, and many windows files form as far back as the 1990's, running in win 7 pro sp1.

 I had a copy of Mandriva XL on a partition that self deleted, and (believe it or not ) the partition SHRANK!! it now states "free space 135 gb, 4.35 used"

it was set up by me for Mandriva with 350gb, approx. 1/2 my WD7500 HDD.

There is not room here to list more than a small fraction of things that have happened since 12 / 2012. I have replaced HDD & mother board, cleared CMOS hundreds of times, reflashed the BIOS, reinstalled Win 7. the list goes on forever.

I have several directories that are "access denied" no matter how high I set permissions. mp3's vanish, as do ISO's, text files, etc.professionals at IOLO labs, could do nothing to help.

 I am more than happy to answer any questions or follow any directions as long as this install still functions, as I will eventually get access denied for all requests, (last time I got access denied trying to open notepad) and anything else.
