I have recently encountered a problem with my computer, It is a Gateway Desktop, Windows Vista Home Premium, service pack 2,Intel®Pentium® Dual CPU @2.00GHz, system type: 32-bit OS. some how I have become locked out of just about all files. it tells me that the programs can only be run by an Admin.But I am the only account on the computer, i have full rights. I tried a system restore to an earlier date and it did not work and am afraid I am going to have to do a Full System restore back to factory settings, I have looked through the computer for the files the manual told me to find and I could find anything except a system restore which as i said didn't work. I have also gone through safe mode, and also whats supposed to be the BOOT menu but there are only three options which don't make any since. can someone please help me?

You can add another account(user) to the system and set the user as a administrator. This should solve the problem unless you have some kind of malware on the computer causing the problem.
