I have a problem with a windows 2000 machine. I don't have the disk so I have to try and figure things out by trial and error. The problem is it won't allow me to run malewarebyte or any other software that is installed. I can access internet explore but if I right-click it, it says "access to the specified device, path or file is denied". Also, the desplay settings are messed up. When I try to access it in the control panel it says access denied. I am under the administrators account and I am a power user. It won't allow me to run firefox either. I can't say for sure it is a virus but it may be the culprit. The online scanners will not go through because the machine won't allow it.
