I've been trying to remove ErrorSmart from my computer. It's not the complete program, just a scan so it does not offer its own uninstall option. Windows said it was preparing to uninstall then I get the message: The system administrator has set policies to prevent this installation.

"Sam" as a username by JL Hunt
I have a friend for whom I put together a computer with Vista Home Basic on it. She is not very computer savvy, and relies on me for support. She "suddenly" began having all sorts of problems that I couldn't explain. (The one that made her call me was that the computer was asking if she wanted to format her DVD... even the Vista installation DVD.) I thought it was a communications...

Locked out of Admin Account by chuakp
Hi, I stupidly changed my admin account (not the built-in one) into a standard user account. I have previously enabled the built-in administrator account so I thought that I will be able to login as administrator using that built-in account. But the welcome screen now does not show the built-in administrator account and I have no access to any admin account. I have tried using safe mode but no...

Need to RUN AS ADMIN but the option is not available? by cmcn
I have a new Vista computer and MSOffice 2003. Can't get rid of the EULA message every time I open a document. I've read that you need to run the program as an administrator to finally accept the EULA but when I right click on MSWORD in the Start menu I don't get the option to do that. Any advice?

Hello. I am using Vista basic on a Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop. Just recently, when the machine is rebooted, I get an error message that the user profile is not loading correctly and the pc goes into a routine where it boots up to what looks like the default setup -- it says that it is creating a desktop, and all of the Dell support stuff pops up. I have to do the following to get back to...

Lost Vista Ultimate on Boot-up by Thomas
Running a workstation w/ 6 hard drives. My first O/S on separate HD is Win 2K Pro; 3 yrs. later, I added XP Pro on separate HD; last yr. added Vista Ult. on a separate HD. All worked well. Got to choose which O/S or HD to boot after the SCSI initialization every time I powered-up. Foolish me: I decided to load one of the 3 idle HDs w/ XP Pro so I could use it for gaming exclusively.

Altered Hosts File by lrichar3
I am trying to change my hosts file so I don't allow access to a particular site. In the process I accidentally changed the extension of the orignal HOSTS file, it is now a .org file and I cannot find a way to get rid of the extension. There are no previous versions to restore to, and renaming no longer changes the file type. How can I either create a new HOSTS file, or restore the orginal one?

Administrator missing by ren
OK, hopefully somebody out there can help on this one, as I have not seen anything like it among previously asked questions. My laptop, which was purchased about a year ago, came with Windows Vista Home Premium installed. I set up my single account as an adminstrator and everything went fine for a long time. A couple of weeks ago, however, I realized that I never had my parents set up...
