    Restriction:
    This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.
    Please contact your system administrator.

    Are you logged in as the Administrator? Log in to the computer under the main user account. If there is one.

    Go into C: Windows/System 32 and look for Control.exe. If it's there then I'm sorry but I am useless to you. If it's not then Malware has moved or corrupted your Control Panel.
