Hello,

I recently have had problems accessing certain files / applications & uninstalling / installing programs on my computer. I have also received error messages that I am not authorized to access these programs because I am not recognized as an administrator on my computer. I attempted to take of the problem myself and changed the administration settings in safe mode for XP Home Edition in order to take ownerships of the folders I was having issues with. Bad idea, that only seemed to make things worse as I now have additional applications that I cannot log into.

In addition to the above problems, when I power on my computer, I receive a message "Cannot connect to all servers, check my computer to see the status of your servers" in my taskbar. I only started receiving this message when I changed the admin settings.

Please HELP! Thank you.

Hi everyone


I am still having issues, so I think that I will wipe my computer clean and re-install the OS and drivers.

Thanks for the reply. You can close out this thread.
