Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).
 
 

Me too -- several (if I understand correctly) clean/repair installs and still the same problem, and no third party add-ons. Weird.

Yes very strange. I have tried to come up with some solution for a week without success.

I have tried to replace the motherboard with a new motherboard and reinstalled Windows 7 and I still get the same warnings and can not turn off my antivirus program through Task Manager. It seems that I do not have administrator rights even I am logged into the built-in Administrator account.

How can this even be possible? What's wrong?

sounds like a hijacking though. as one person put it to me when i asked questions such as this: learn to network scrub. and I am not calling you a scrub, its just what the ghostly *******a said. windows does protect some system files though, evven if you're an administrator you may not be able to view them if you don't really know your way around windows.

even so, consider the hardware changes, windows might think you're a different administrator or something. try scanning with device manager, restarting pressing f8 and running repair. did you look at your permissions? i've had that issue on various pc's over the network, but it always says you need administrator privledges and i click a button and pushes on through to let me adjust settings. well 9 times out of ten.
