I've been a member here for only two days, and have encountered two problems already. That isn't good.
Anyway, I've been experiencing this problem for quite some time now, but have been able to find ways around it. But because of this problem I've been experiencing
, I can no longer ignore the problem.
I am the administrator on my computer, and since I've had my HP Pavillion PC, which is about 3 years old, I have never had any problems running programs, installing/uninstalling software or hardware or anything else limited to the administrator. That is, until now.
Everytime I try to install something (namely, SP2), it tells me I need an administrative account to do so. But I do have an administrative account! I'm the owner of the computer as well!
I've tried installing them in Safe Mode in the account named 'Administrator' and I experience the same problem. Could this be some sort of virus?
Maybe its because I recently deleted an account that used to be the Owner. I don't know. But that account is long gone, far from the reach of System Restore.
I don't know what else to do. If you guys can't help me, I'm going to wind up calling Windows!
