H guys, My computer was infected with virus/malware/spyware/everything. One of the many symtoms was that my account did not have admin rights anymore. After Cleaning the pc the computer runs much better. i have follow the instruccions on spyware/malware removal on a previous thread. But i still don't have administrator rights on this accont. I can't change my deskpot, i can't get to system properties (right click my computer,properties) i can't get to control panel, i can't do any updates. The computer is listed as an administrator account, and i don't know how to go about with this. i tried creating another admin account and then copying the old one to the new one but it does not allow me to copy the profile. It would allow me to copy any other profile listed but not the one i want to change. Again this started happening after my computer was infected. Everytime i tried to do any of the tasks mentioned above i get a lack of priveileges message telling me to contact the system administrator. and this is anoying. Can anyone help Please. Your help will be Greatly appreciated.
