Restricted Access in Windows XP

By rrotzien ·
Somehow my admin account on my Gateway is restricted from accessing the Control Panel, Date/Time, Desktop properties, and a few other items. At one point I couldn't even access the Windows Task Manager but I found the Registry entry that Disabled that access and have corrected it. I have been unsuccessful in finding anything else anywhere - any one with an idea?

Tricky situation

by Toivo Talikka In reply to Restricted Access in Wind ...

Is this a standalone PC, or part of a domain? If you had another local administrator account for situations like this, you could fix the problem by using the alternative administrator login.

Have you scanned your PC for virus and spyware/malware? Do other people know your password? Sometimes there is a joker in the office who thinks it is funny to alter the settings on other people's PCs.

This is a stand alone computer that I use at home. I have scanned for spyware, malware, etc, etc. It is the computer my children use for internet so it is possible that it was caused when they were online. Beyond that I haven't a clue as to how to correct the situation.
