I have checked my user status in User Accounts and yes it says i am an administrator and should have full access.
Something else i could mention that MIGHT have to do with this..but might not im not sure... is that even though i am the only user of this computer, when i look in Administrative Tools>Computer Management, there is another user name titled "Administrator" and under the description for it it states that it is a "Built-in account for administering the computer/domain". Is this normal? (maybe the computer company i purchased it from adds this in..i have no idea)...when i log off my account and try to relog in again the only user choice available is my own, BUT when i go into safe mode, and i get to the User account selection screen mine AND "Administrator" shows up. I can access the "Administrator" account and in that account i can access the registry. I veiwed the permissions and it seems to show that i should have access from my account as well. but yet i still can't access it from my account..in normal and safe mode.
SOO...after all of that information...can anyone out there come up with some reason as to why i cant access the registry in my own account? Ive read lots of stuff here..and theres some smart people out here i know it! lol. thanx for all the help.
EDIT: I just noticed also that i cannot get to Control Panel>Display b/c "Your system administrator disabled the Control Panel Display" (this is exactly what it says)....k...now i know something is wrong...
