I am Running a Computer with:
XP Service pack 3
Carbonite for backup.
Login as Administrator - only this user on this computer with full access.
After starting computer cannot open any programs or browse the computer, cannot Access control panel.
Cannot run Regedit.
Cannot install any .exe files.
cannot open internet explorer.
All the above in Safe Mode/ Safe mode with networking.
I keep getting "Windows cannot access the specified device, path,or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"
I have tried booting up in safe mode with networking and installing Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. this also comes up with the same error message.
can anyone HELP!!!
Thanks in advance.
