  1. I had major problems with my PC.

    Was getting constant random reboots.

    I thought it was RAM, so I upgraded to 2GB. Upgraded PSU from 480W to 600W. Still had problems.

    I noticed most times the reboots occured was when the graphics card was being used. I decided to reinstall the Nvidia drivers, but system had errors installing & updating whatever I tried to do.

    I looked in the registry and permissions for some software items did not give full access to administrators. I did a global change to give full control to administrators on all registry values. It fixed all problems!

    The question is, how come some registry items do not give full rights to administrators ie the full control option is unchecked.


    Thanks

    i dont know the reason why admin doesnt get entirely full rights, but i have experienced major issues with windows after changing regedity access rights for all users to full control.
