Thnx for the tips!! I'll try my best. OK.....I reinstalled NortonAntiVirus( it expired so I purchsd a cd). After that I got the error of (insert any name..Firefox, IE..etc)..............
C/program files(x86) mozilla firefox\firefox exe is not a valid Win32 application
I tried doing a system restore of a week before the chng...no help. Same. I CAN open up FireFox using the command...Run as Admin. I hope this helps narrow down my prob.
Plz N' Thnx, Bogie

Norton might be the biggest problem you have. Try uninstalling it using the uninstaller from the norton website and then try connecting. If you can get connected then I suggest you download and maybe use Avast free or AVG, Avast would be my choice.

You got it.....rather I got it now. All systems go. Your suggestion worked fine. I did the uninstall procedure and the error is gone. I can once again access any program without "Run As Admin". Its so nice to have it workin' as it was.
Plz N' Much Thnx, Bogie
