I will assume you have tried rebooting.

Check that your account is still set as Administrator. Start then Control Panel then Users (also that there are no unknown accounts there. (Do you have a password on your account?)

Are you running an up to date virus checker? if so update it and run a full scan. If not try Housecall click here its a free online scan.

Hi rawprawn i`ve tried what you suggested but all i get is the answer i outlined above in my first email,it seems as if every thing i click on i get the same reply as above,there`s a few that i can open but not a lot. George.
