  1. Yeah I know what one is, but for some reason I dont think my main one is an admin account. I think our admin login is just like admin something. But I dont know how to access it. I know the main name I sign on now is not an admin, but when choosing I only have this name and my wife's, which is also not an admin. EDIT: I think mine is an admin. I was able to do what you told me to. I will tell you in the AM if that helped. I run a website and update it in the morning, so I will let you know then. -chris
  2. This will sound stupid certainly, but I am not sure how to log on as an administrator.

  4. I did the first part and everything went off without a hitch, I will post that soon. The second part, when I click the online virus scan, I am told I need Java 1.5 or higher. When I go to the Java site and click to verify my java version I get the following: Verified Java Version Congratulations! You have the recommended Java installed (Version 6 Update 7). What am I missing here? Is 6.7 not higher than 1.5? EDIT: I still cant do it with IE, but I tried it with Firefox and it's letting me do it, so I will have both logs posted soon.
  5. The only other issues I am having are with IE. I dont know if its related to this or not, but sometimes, with frequency, I get "operation aborted, cannot find site" error windows. I can usually just close those and hit reload and the site loads fine. Also, if I am trying to open multiple tabs, after awhile the tabs will just say "connecting" and never connects to the destination site..

  7. Awesome Sarah, As I rebooted my computer actually "found new hardware" and recognized by two disc drives. Now, since I used the tool you told me about, will I still need to manually delete the file C:\Windows\system32\$sys$filesystem\aries.sys ?
  8. Ok, I just tried to go through with it, when I typed in the command cmd /k sc delete $sys$aries at the Open Field on the run box, I get a black box with the following message... [sC] Open Service Failed 1060: The specified service does not exist as an installed service And I am given a prompt.
  9. Thanks for replying Sarah. I should've known this was part of the problem. I participated in the lawsuit against Sony. I do have a question however, on the site you sent me to... step 5 says Delete C:\%WinDir%\system32\$sys$filesystem\aries.sys (Replace %WinDir% with the directory that Windows is installed on your computer) So I take it that once I reboot, I go into C: and delete that file. What I dont understand is where do I get the replacement file from? -chris
  10. My computers been screwy for awhile and a friend suggested I download HJT, and then I found these forums. Hope someone can help. -mubm EDIT: I dont know if I need to add this information or not but it all started with IE giving me problems crashing.. now my cd drives wont read.. among a lot of other problems.
