    So many problems!


    Hi, I'm having A TON OF PROBLEMS!
    My account is the built-in admin account and it claims that I have no admin privileges like saying Access is denied to stuff like java. I can't run .exe files either! My Google Chrome won't open. NOT Even Internet Explorer! I can't do anything on my pc! (In case you were wondering, I'm typing this on my iPad. Not my laptop)
    Please help me! I even tried to make another admin account and it worked but I still couldn't do anything! THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING! Please help! I need all the help I can get!

    Yeah I did. It won't let me do that either. It says"Insert recovery media or disk to do this operation."
    I can't do a re-install of windows either. D:

    I found out what was causing it... It was a setting I set on Vipre XD
