Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium x64, AMD Turion 2.0
I am the admin in Windows Vista Home Premium x64. This is just an older laptop I got from a friend. It is a Toshiba I have restored the factory setttings with Recovery DVD's from Toshiba. I am the only user on this laptop and it is password protected. Like I said I am the only user set up and that makes me the admin. I double checked in User Accounts and it shows admin. I added another admin account and tried and I still could not access what I need. What is the deal here?

That is where you change the computer name and workgroup name. It is advanced system settings. I am sorry my mistake. "advanced system protection" sounds liek a rouge virus.
It saids Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
i am the admin.
Same with device manager anything in the system. I had to type system in the search to even get it up. Right clicking on "Computer" did nothing.

Well I restored a backup I made right after the recovery. I had not installed many programs and had not even been online with it. I installed ie8 (do not like ie9 or 10) so I stick with 8. But anyway I installed MSE AV and a few more updates. Now it is doing the same. Why does it keep doing this? Before It never even went online. Is this a Toshiba thing? If it does this again I am going to go AGK on this laptop it is just an extra one I got so I don't care if I bust it or not. It is really anoying for it to tell me I am not the admin.

Well I have tried that program. Still have the problem. I am not going to go AGK. I have decided to just retire that laptop and use the parts. I may check and see if the memory is the same as in my dell. I can also keep the hdd you never know when the one in my dell may fail. Thanks for all the help.
