No matter what changes I try to do, my computer has developed a mind of its own.  Keeps telling me I do not have permission and must login as administrator.  Even after I log off and log back in, it still will not let me delete programs or make changes to setup.  I tried the Run as Administrator  option, and again, it tells me I do not have permission.  Should I throw it out a window or am I missing the obvious here?

G'day ohgreylady, Please...read the following pages with great care.  Incredible problems can result from clicking without sufficient thought......all problems can be negated by a reinstall of course, but even that is not for the faint hearted !!


After you have read and digested the content....and are sure you know what you are about to do......go for it !


A final word of warning....set a new RESTORE POINT, before you proceed.  HERES HOW


and.....backup the registry....USE THIS

I tried the remedies above....already know how to edit and make changes to the registry and backing it up is the first thing you go....to the desktop; not a folder.  None of the above worked.  Finally found the problem and resolved it.  Under the Administrative Tools Folder I found a folder names Local Security Policy.  These folders were hidden until I changed the veiw hidden folders option.  This was where I found the solution to all of the issues I was having.  Again, thanks for the help, but I had already tried most of this and the fixes I had not tried did not resolve the problem.  As soon as I rebooted, the problems were back again.
