I am needing some help 'simple fixes' if possible
While reinstalling NortonAV PC hung and would not complete installation, then things stared to happen apart from my e mail & Internet access
1)Programs came up with error 'this File does not have a program association,create an association within Folder Options'
Programs will only open when I right click/run as user and uncheck 'Protect my computer.......'
2)'Task Mngr has been disabled by your administrator'I can't access Sys Restore,Help Support etc AS error message in 1) comes up
I have a Dell PC ie pre installed XP,Do I need to bite the bullet and do a clean reinstall or is there light at the end of the tunnel
Thx in advance from a 'layman' in computer technology
