I am the only user on my PC. but i do not have the administrative priviledges. i cant even copy anything to C and D drives because i do not have the write privileges.Please help me...... when i right click on computer, and say manage, a message such as "Windows cannot find "". Make sure that you have typed the name correctly and try again" is displayed. i do not have even the right to install anything.

I am having a similar issue when I try to make changes through the command prompt. It says that I need to run as an administrator. I have gone through the steps of making myself the administrator, which I already was, but it is still insisting that I am not. How to I fix this?

I know nothing of NPAV. Because of the problem starting right after installing NPAV I would remove NPAV. Their is a tool to remove it.

(Download) Net Protector 2013 Removal Tool Download (Uninstaller)

Then I would go to a restore point before this problem started.

By Brink:
System Restore

Next step would be to install Microsoft Security Essentials.
Then check and see if your permissions are correct.
