  1. Well, it appears your account isn't actually an administrative account.
  2. When you right click the folder and go to properties, you don't have a security tab?
  3. There is actually a very easy fix for this. When you install the program, Windows sets permissions on the folder. Typically, they are set for "Everyone". What you can do is right click the program's folder under Program Files, and go to properties. Then hit the "Security" tab and take out "Users" or "Everyone" (Could be both.) After you do that, add YOUR account and give fill permissions. That way, you will be the only one to access that folder, and your sister won't be able to.
  4. Welcome to testmy! Feel free to ask questions and get involved! And remember... A dumb question is one that is not asked.
  5. Alternatively, use the "Report to moderator" link if "Report to Admin" is not there.. It's at the lower right hand side of the post.
  6. How would bringing up the run dialog fix anything?
  7. A little piece of me died inside after seeing Blunted 2's speeds.

  9. Argh! If I would have been a little faster, I could have told you to look through the policy editor and find where that was disabled at. Oh well!
  10. What you really should do is boot up in Safe Mode w/ Networking and run the tools tommi suggested. If that doesn't work, you may have to manually edit your registry. I will get into that later after you do that. ^^

    What's Up

    Welcome to the gang.
  12. What do you mean by a "template"? The steps involved in making a network or the structure of a network?
  13. Just use the XP disc to install the drivers?
  14. Nope. Not true at all. Just make sure that the motherboard supports the type of connection the hard-drive uses (Probably IDE). "... but i've heard that the operating system will only work on the motherboard it was activated on." That makes me giggle like a little school girl, I'm sorry!
  15. What tricks did he do? Let's see if we can narrow this down to see what's actually happening. Did you try a different hard-drive in the machine?
  16. Hey Zeranimus, Welcome to the forums. This particular "SVCHost.exe" is quite possibly a virus. Check out this website: http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary/svchost/ Try doing some of the things they suggest on there.
  17. Hmm.. Well, I suggest getting ahold of an external hard drive and backing up all your important files (songs, porn, docs, etc.) and format the drive. If you have access to another hard drive, try plugging that one in and see if you get that same message using another hard drive. If you don't, it could be your old hard drive going out.
  18. I don't think rolling back the OS will help you. Try this: http://www.windowsreinstall.com/winxppro/installxpcdrepair/indexfullpage.htm It is a step-by-step guide (with pictures!) showing you how to repair your current XP installation. Let us know if that helped ^^
