Administrator can't access programs on computer e.g. anything on C:drive due to a virus..(VIRUS ALERT shows when administrator logs in )which wasn't picked up by Virgin's PC Guard or spybot s & d..however the other 2 users ( wife & son ) are unaffected.and can work away no problem. There are 2 drives on computer C and F .. administrator can access F but cant access C..all icons relating to various progs like control panel,program files,command prompt etc have been erased from screen..in safe mode still the same..and it wont let you system restore in safe mode...anyone any ideas ??? Running XP pro SP3
maybe get rid of Virgins PC Guard and install AVG and A Squared both free.Lots of different freebies out there those 2 given were only an example.Just wondering if you opened a new user account with administrator rights and delete the one that you have would that work.Virus Alert.Can you give us the name of the Virus Alert program.
Done wot u suggested...opened a new account with rights..deleted other one...bingo..only thing is that.everything the administrator had has now been transferred to a single folder in his name..avg scan on same reveals all o.k. Everything seems to be back in order..by the way...the link provider 2 sent me froze my computer..twice...mmmm....cheers all
