In this case, it sounds like the best solution would be to reformat and install the OS.

You could find whatever program is restricting the pc and uninstall it.

That is if there are not restrictions against uninstalling programs and stuff like the computers at my school.

Yea,
Hmm.
Buy a Windows Disk (or if you already got 1)
put it in the drive and click reinstall.

Then it should reinstall the OS.

Done :O
