Settings.ini is being used by another process. Close the other program and then click Retry, or click Cancel to exit. I had the weather desktop gadget on my desktop before.
Either another instance of OpenOffice.org is accessing your personal settings or your personal settings are locked. Simultaneous access can lead to inconsistencies in your personal settings. Before continuing, you should make sure user "OpenOffice.org on host". Do you really want to continue? Yes / No.
I am unable to save ANY files all of a sudden too. Whether a picture from snip it to show error messages, or to try to save a log from the SpyBot or HiJack This.
According to my computer I don't have administrative authority to do anything anymore. Now, my system settings show that I do but I can't save anything regardless and I get an error message stating I can't whenever I try to save something or change anything. Even to clean up with SpyBot and even uninstall programs I no longer use or want or am afraid of. Plus, I can even find the registry entries that SpyBot gives for the corrupted files it supposedly found! I want to delete them but can't find them. My computer won't even allow me to do a virus scan with Avast, saying I don't have the authority to do so.
When I open Internet Explorer, I get a message stating that the default search provider has been changed, but this is not what my settings are telling me and I stay where I want to be, nothing has changed as far as I can see. Of course, it gives me the OK button to click which may be only doing more harm to click to continue on the web. I've tried to remove Bing but it won't let me do that and I can't re-install to uninstall either.
Now, I ran a SpyBot Search and Destroy and found Coupon Bar (PUP), MyWebSearch (Trojans), FunWebProducts (PUP), MyWay.MyWebSearch (), and DoubleClick(). 1506 temporary files cannot be removed before the scan for some reason. Um, that's not what it said yesterday ... only around 200 or so files. So something is mutating in here.
Also, I've run SpyBot several times and it seems to be cleaning up, as per the log, yet I can't save any files yet, including the log generated from SpyBot or HiJack This, of which to fix from.
I'm not sure what to do now. Can anyone help me get my computer back????
