Hi, my issue is though all my files, documents, start menu & icons are where they should be if i try to access them it gives me the message
"Windows cannot acces the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them."
There is only my profile on the install of windows and I am the administrator, i've tried from the start menu - run - CMD with admin privileges and it gives me the same message. I've tried to Take ownership but that option isn't available in the drop down menu - it doesn't restrict me accessing any file or folder just the running of any file...
In safe mode i've ran AV & AS programs including - Spybot S&D, Superantispyware, Avast, Malwarebytes AM & Microsoft security essentials - and none of them have found anything except a few cookies the first time through which it removed and changed nothing, as you would expect... I am also running Online Armour as my firewall but had turned off the program guard to install couple of programs, but not the webshield.
As i mentioned above in Safe Mode i can run most programs no problem including the AV's. I also run Msconfig in safe mode to see if i could see a service or startup program i don't recognise as i've experimented with alot of them when i was running XP and there doesn't appear to be something that looks out of place.
Would appreciate any help or advice i can get as this is a new one and very frustrating... hate using the older laptop for everything.
Thanks in advance,
