I'm sorry to post a recurring issue but I've trawled forums and Microsoft discussion boards, tried and applied a few fixes. I'm no closer to resolution. I have to put my hands up and say I don't know what I'm doing please help, I really need a step by step guide out of this. A bit of background. I'm using a Samsung N140 Netbook with the above specs. XP home was pre-installed and I don't have a reinstall disk ( or external drive to connect to install it ) I am basically trying to avoid a rebuild. I am using an administrator account but not the main admin account under safe mode.
So here's the error ;
''Please change your Internet Explorer security settings

1. I have followed these steps, Userdata persistence is already enabled.
2. When I try to restart the update service under services.msc I get this error ;
''Unable to open service Automatic Updates for reading on local Computer ,
Error 5: Access is denied.''
