Windows 7: Most of my rights: GONE!

22 Sep 2011   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate - 6.1.7601 - x64
Most of my rights: GONE!


I got an ugly bad software, it was called as the 1.9 pre-release of Minecraft, but it was fake. I got the real one legally, but it doesn't count now. (It's just an other update, free if, you have the game...)

I was too impatient...

The fake one made some horrible things with my Group Policy settings. At least, I was able to enable Task Manager, Command prompt, Regedit. It is still bad. I want to reset all my policies. I'm an admin on this PC, so I have normally permission to everything.

This "bad guy" messed up my settings.

What should I do? I have no older system recoveries...

Hi. In a corporate setting, I must sometime ask for admin access to change the smallest things. So sometimes they give me admin rights, and then take them away after I'm done. How can I keep them, without having to ask IT every time? Please leave legality and ethics alone, I'm only interested in...

Admin rights
Hi, I am a beginner and don't understand the logic of Windows Admin rights: 1. I am the adminstrator (the system control confirms that). Still I can not save a txt file under programs (in that case: under Thunderbird Mozilla / Chrome). WHY? 2. The problem exists even when I individually...
