Preferred Solution: Missing control Panel, lost admin. privileges

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Windows XP my problem is i think my machine control panel hijacked lost, privileges administrator is slowly dying It started at least a few administrator privileges lost, control panel hijacked weeks ago - First my shut down button disappeared leaving only my log off button - administrator privileges lost, control panel hijacked I also had an incident when I pressed ctrl alt del maybe a couple times and a million task managers appeared on my desktop Since then when ever I attemp ctrlaltdel i get the message quot Task manager has been disabled by your administrator quot - Then i started getting this message quot Cannot find c windows db d Isass exe quot popping up while my desktop was loading at start up - Then i noticed that control panel had disappeared and I started getting a message that says this operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer please contact your system administrator - Also i noticed that icons on my desktop were rearranged so that there was a row empty while some items were slightly off the screen at the bottom - i saw your post quot quot Cannot find c windows db d Isass exe quot when i was searching online for a clue as to how to fix this problem and followed the instructions there except i didnt save hjthis to my desktop nor did i save the hijack this log--go figure - before following through fully tho i decided to try and update avg but that was a mistake cus the process just always got stuck when it was almost finished installing so i decided to go back to avg I deleted or tried to uninstall it i deleted files on my desktop that were from avg and i tried to reinstall but guess what I could no longer open firefox further when i tried to open it it gave me this message which among other things offeredd a button marked quot debug quot and another quot cancel quot that didnt work as the problem recurred when i attempted to open firefox again - When i had uninstalled avg i I decided to try AVAST again i downloaded it and ran the programme and it found and addressed some problems but then the computer was so messed up and slow or was it that i was just frazzled and annoyed at that point that I had th inspiration to try system restore I restored to a point from a day or so earlier i dont know exactly what that does except i hoped that all my problems would disappear - they didnt -anyway i ran the sdfix thing in safe mode first in my user name then in this adminstrator account i discovered i thot i was the administrator it worked in administrator like you described but not in my regular login I dont recall seeing quot finished quot appear though and neither did i see a file quot report txt quot --oh wait there it is see below - when I had completed up to this point i didnt see the error message quot Cannot find c windows db d Isass exe quot at start up anymore - BUT i still had the problems with control panel and i still get that message about not having permission to access any control panel related files mozilla firefox no longer gives that debug message having uninstalled and reinstalled it but it now just shows an hour glass on the pointer as if it s going to open and then nothing happens - then today the machine was so slow and it seemed to be heating up and working hard it looks like avg was running two system scans at the same time one had been running for hours and the other for hours or was i really seeing minutes i stopped the scans and things improved a little but I am almost sure that double scanning is not supposed to happen oh--and neither of those scans had found any viruses or malware - oh and when i turn on the computer nowadays i get this DOS screen thing saying that the command prompt is disabled or something like that and press any key to continue i obey and it does some work and then life continues - oh and I ran the sd fix thing a couple of times blush so thats my problem in a nutshell - I ll attempt to add the hijackthis log now ATTACHMENTS Hijackthis log for...

I run Windows XP Professional and my administrator account cannot access the Control Panel. My guest account can. I don't know how I caused this.

This defeats logic, as far as I'm concerned. I thought the Administrator account was all powerful and could never loose privliges.
 

A:Admin Lost Control Panel Access in XP

Howdy there James Reyes...

Is it giving you an error, or just not opening the control panel ?

Because it could be either a corrupt profile, or somethings changed in the local security policy...

Hi - I have a home XP system and when I did a spyware scan a few months ago I lost my control panel and Administrator rights. I ran "Control userpasswords2," from the command line and it shows that I have administrator rights. But, when ever I try to remove or install a program the system says "access denied make sure the disk is full," or You do not have privileges contact your system administrator. I started in safe mode, created a new account, with full administrator privileges, but, that too did not work. By the way the control panel was not available in safe move. I even checked the registry for "noncontrolpanel," and could not find that entry. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks... Ronnie

I am not on my own computer... helping someone else to fix theirs.
We have no administrative rights and control panel is GONE! I ran the free scan from Symantec and it came up with more than I can count trojans and other stuff.... This computer 'was' sitting in a place where 'people' came in and used it for their...... uhhh.... personal 'stuff'.... so it is completely corrupted.
It is used at a small business office and would really like to repair it for them. The only thing I do know is that it he is running WinXP Home (service pack2 suppose to be on it)... it is from Dell.
I am hoping someone can help me get it up and running again.... all of his car sales 'stuff' is on it!!
Thanks

Stumbling around the internet looking for teardown instructions for my backup laptop I have been infected with some harsh spyware. I am usualy VERY carful about the websites I vusit. I had no antivirus running but that has been fixed. I have used security task manager to quarantine acs.exe winavxx.exe but I try and kill printer.exe but is keeps coming back with every restart. I also get the annoying "This operatition has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system admin" any time I try to access any avilable system settings and my control pannel is gone... HOw do I get my computer back and prevent this from happening again?

Recently, the Admin Tools icon disappeared from my Control Panel. There is a blank icon there but it doesn?t do anything. The admin tools folder in the start menu works fine, so I guess the tools are still there. I just can?t open them from the Control Panel.

How can I delete this blank icon and get the Admin Tools icon back in the Control Panel?

Thanx,

Randy

Apparently, my Control Panel is nowhere to be found.
I've looked everywhere, and when I try to search for it in run, it says I don't have administrative permissions, even though I'm on the Owner account, and there IS no other account. Also, because of the lack of permissions, I can't install anything or change my clock. Help? If you need more information, please tell me what and I'll try to explain myself better. Thank you!
 

A:XP: Missing Control Panel and No Admin Account!

Welcome to TSG forums.
Not sure this will work , but you might try right clicking on my computer (in Vista computer) and select manage. there is a menu of several choices there, click on User, then again on user when the box opens, you should be able to access the administrator and or change the user stuff there.
post back and let us know how it goes.

New to this site, and a beginner on fixing things. I'm runnin win xpsp2 and i so far ran spysweeper, avg, super antispyware, ccleaner, and regcleaner. I cannot find my control panel, cannot click on time clock, cannot do win update even by going to microsoft.com, and cannot click on my name in the start menu and every thing says " THis operation has been canceled due to restrictions on computer Please contact sys admin" which i am admin. Everything i ran above has found things but still no help on fixing my problem. Thanks for you help

A:Missing Control Panel, No Admin Access

What things are you finding? The name of the malware would helpful. Are you getting any pop ups saying your computer is infected or to download certain programs?System Restore from a command prompt in "Safe Mode" to return to a previous state before your problems began?If that does not help, then try doing your scans in "Safe Mode". Make sure you are doing scans while logged into the "Administrator Account" or an "account with administrator privileges".Let us know what they find and we will direct you from there.

I'm having problems opening a program and I've been told to check that Event Log is turned on.

Unfortunately, Event Log is nowhere to be found.

In the list of items in Services, I see Distributed Transaction Coordinator, DNS Client and the I should see Event Log. But, the next item in the list is Expat Shield Monitoring Service.

Any idea how I can restore Event Log to the list?

Many thanks.

A:Event Log missing in Control Panel/Admin Tools/Services

Welcome
Event log is not one of the listed services. I do not have it either.
Go to search by the start button and type event log.
Tell me more about the program, I may be able to help.

Nice work Microsoft! I just turned on my computer to find that my admin rights have been stripped from my user account. It's weird, I'm the only user of this computer and its a personal laptop.- Running Windows Vista on a 32bit HP DV5 Laptop- I can't access Task Manager from Ctrl+Alt+Del- Cannot enter Run -> Regedit as it returns a "Regediting has been disabled by your Administrator"Also there's this weird message below my Run command box:Any help?PS: UAC was turned off ages ago and similar problems went away. It's still turned off - no idea what's going on

A:Just lost all admin privileges..

Looks like a malware attack, this will Re-enable (http://www.raymond.cc/forum/general-forum/12672-re-enable-project-ideas-and-suggestions.html) but you need to AV scan to get rid of it.http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

Hi

I seem to have lost admin rights/privileges on my account, even though it says i am an admin. I can't use windows update because of the following message. UAC is off.


I created another account and swapped admin privileges to that, and everything was ok, but as soon as i swap the privileges back to my original account, i get various 'this action requires admin rights' etc etc

I'm confused. I don't want to keep logging into another admin account just so i can use windows update.

I've tried this, but it said it couldn't fix all the problems. What can i try next folks?

Cheers

A:Lost Admin Privileges

Just set up a new account. Give yourself privileges for the software in the first account. Make that the new account. The first account is corrupt

You can try this, too.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hi all So the situation is this I had to setup an existing PC in Admin Privileges Lost the office for a new starter and decided to be lazy and simply change the user account name Lost Admin Privileges I know that was a schoolboy error Since doing this the computer allows me to login fine with the new username password but keeps asking for the Admin login details whenever I try to make system changes update software etc The user account I changed was the admin account so not sure why this is happening I ve tried using every username password that has ever been assigned to that PC but nothing works Is there any workaround to get Admin privileges back so I can fix this FYI - The PC is a member of our work domain so figure this has further complicated things Really hoping this isn t going to need a full re-installation of windows fingers crossed someone out there can give me some good news Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Lost Admin Privileges

The prompt for Admin during installs is actually a good thing (that is the UAC and you REALLY want it to prompt) BUT you can almost always use any log in the Administrators Group

use CP->User Accounts
add user
set type = Admin
*must* add password to it

save and close

runas /user:$whatever$you$just$created cmd
give that password

it will then create the %profile% for that new user

From then on, you can reply with $whatever$you$just$created and its password

Hi guys, any clue about this issue ?

Please help bad installation and now I cannot access Windows files
At the first time (I didnt the real cause above), I did format of my win8.

After that, the second time I install HoldemManager2 and ( ) I lost my admin privileges again.

Any clue before I start format again ?
In safe mode I can't create users...

Also in safe mode I tried uninstall HM2... win8 says: "contact admin"

I disable the postgress service, but even this is not working...

A:I lost my admin privileges in Bad Postgres Installation

Try adding "Take Ownership" to the Shell:

Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 8

See if you can elevate your Privileges with that. It may be the permissions for the whole folder where you have these files stored.

Hi all

I hope somebody can perhaps rescue me,

I have had win8 for approx 1 year and just upgraded to win8.1 last week.

I installed bitdefender total security at the same time and everything was fine for a few days until one morning I woke up my Laptop to find I couldnt open a software program. Further investigation has found that I can not alter anything on my machine.

I have only the one user account which has my name, email, Administrator and password protected showing.

I can use my laptop still but have no admin rights at all.

When i try to open command prompt (admin) it takes a few minutes to come back with an error saying cannot access specified path, file folder etc...

I am pulling my hair out as i cant even restore my system back to factory settings.

How can I restore my factory settings from this point??

A:No Control Panel or Admin Rights

Can anybody please help?
I have no admin rights on my computer now
its all messed up.

I cannot acess the control panel (except for safemode)

Also, I cannot acess "administrator privledges" - even though i am the admin. Have never had this problem before. These include add/remove progs, opening the clock, etc. It says "This operation cannot be completed due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"
I can act as the system admin in safemode.

The McAfee isn't recognizing anything.. .

Upon startup I get the msg. "cannot find file C:\WINDOWS\shell.exe"

It's also very slow.

I am using a Dell Inspiron B120 / Windows XP.

What's up?

Hello

Ive already tried to do a search but no luck so i needed to post any help would be much appreciated.

I have had a TROJAN VIRUS in the past all tho fixed it seems to have left something behind.

My CONTROL PANEL is missing from START MENU in two of the three user profiles, the one that is fine didnt have ADMINISTRATOR rights but the other two did but dont now??

I cant use properties when I right click on desktop and it then double displays a message saying OPERATION CANCELLED DUE TO RESTRICTIONS PLEASE CONTACT ADMIN.

Can this be fixed easily?? and how?

Hi all,

i had a pop up today which looked like a windows message but i'm guessing it was a virus of some sort as now i have no admin rights or i can't access the control panel from my account which is the admin account. However i can access them on my partners account but obviously still don't have admin rights.

i have tried booting it in safe mode but when i get into the boot menu at start up the up and down keys don't appear to work so i can only select 'start windows normally'. I have tried to do a system restore through my partners account but won't let me do it because of no admin rights.

i'll appreciate anyones help to help me overcome this problem.

thanks in advance,

Jamie

I have two user accounts on Vista Home Pro.
One is a standard, limited user account (password protected) and the other is my admin account (obviously with admin privileges and password protected).

I am not sure when this started happening but I am unable to launch control panel under my admin account.
I get a pop-up of "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item".
The title bar of this pop-up has "::{26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683}"

What I can do is launch control panel from my standard/limited user account and, when prompted, enter the admin password.
Seems my Admin account has somehow become corrupted. If so how can I fix it?

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Walter

A:Cant open control panel in Admin login !!

To assist in your problem, we need you to download HijackThis (http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/HJTInstall.exe). Install the program (it will save to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis), run it, and select 'Scan'. Do not fix anything yet, just select 'Save log', and copy the contents of the log to your next post. A security expert will be along to check the log. Please be patient.

If, after 48 hours, you have not received a response, click on the 'Report' button at the bottom of your post, and ask politely to have the post moved to the Malware Removal forum.

Programs wont run on my laptop (and its not the usual .exe programs not running problem). When i click on the icon of a program, nothing happens at all or sometimes the cursor has a loading icon next to it and that's as far is it gets. Also when i do click on an icon, i cannot click on anything else after that, not even start.
Alongside this problem, the network connection icon on the task bar (2 computer screens) always has a red X on them even though i am connected via wifi, and it will not let me open network connections from that icon or from control panel.
One final problem is that Windows live one care wont run either so therefore i am vulnerable to threats online.

I am running Windows Vista on a HP laptop.

Any help on any of this would be greatly appreciated!

A:Problems with programs, control panel, run as admin...

Sounds like Virus issues to me if you could try running a scan on your PC in Safe Mode, also let me know if the same problem occurs in Safe Mode

To access safe mode Restart your PC then during the boot process keep tapping F8 until you get to the Advanced Boot Menu, where you should then select Safe Mode with Networking and be sure to update your Anti-Virus before scanning if need be.

A client of mine has a system whose administrator account has been restricted. No Windows Update, no Control Panel, can't RIGHT-click on My Computer and select Properties.

Solution?
 

A:Admin account restricted - no control panel

If this is Windows XP Professional, have you checked the Group Policy?
Start => Run and type in gpedit.msc

For the Updates look in:
User Configuration
Administrative Templates
Windows Components
Windows Update

For the Right-click context menu look in:

Administrative Templates

Explorer

For the Control Panel look in:

Control Panel

Set any entries to "Not Configured".

HELP!
I recently lost all admin rights on my computer to a rogue admin that has been set up behind the scenes. I noticed it when I went to the add and remove programs and was denied access and told to contact my system admin.
This is my computer and I was the admin.... Also the control panel is gone completely. I cant change any settings on my computer from removing software to changing themes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...Ive gotten rid of magicantispy and some trojan.vundo programs that I found using superantispyware, but that hasn't helped

Any ideas would be very helpful. Thank you...

It seems my computer has also been compromised. I lost access to my control panel and administrator rights for at least a week (may be longer). I also keep getting the yellow triangle with the question mark in the systray and the 'Windows Security Alert' pop-up box. Anyway, I did purchase the WinAntivirus 2007 standard software for $49.95 on Thursday but I had to uninstall it today because it slowed my machine. Can you help me fix these problems?

I have the EXACT same problem! So I'm no help at all, but I need the same help you get. I'm not very good with computers though so I have no idea what those codes are that you're typing or anything like that.
I really need to fix this because I can't delete any programs since I can't get to the control panel to add/delete programs.

I just recently reconnected my computer to the internet and it has quickly gotten bogged down with malware. I've got McAffee, but it is pretty worthless. I disabled iexplorer by brute force (deleting files) and that solved most popup problems. However, I still have some nasty program that has hidden my control panel, and does not let me add/remove programs, chance times and dates, mess with the desktop, etc. My task manager is still working at least, but that is about it. I have no clue where to start... something keeps closing down spybotSD before it even has a chance to install.

O benevolent tech support guys, help me please!

Using XP SP3 on a Vaio Notebook.
Suddenly my Control Panel seems to have disappeared.
If I click on, or even touch 'Control Panel' on the Start menu, all the desktop icons vanish, and then reappear a few seconds later.
Is this a registry problem? I don't think I've suffered any infections.

A:Lost Control Panel

You should heed the advice of paullotion...he suggested that you follow the steps outlined in this thread:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/secu...tml#post342651

For now, do this:

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt here.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and
copy and paste the following into the "Upload File from your Computer" box:C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt

Click Upload.

What DSS will do: create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review. DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you already have SmitfraudFix, please delete it, and get this most recent version:

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) to your Desktop.

Double-click smitfraudfix.exe to start the tool.
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"
and a text file will appear which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

IMPORTANT: Do NOT run option #2 OR any other option until you are directed to do so!

I really don't know how this happened. One day I was going to try and open my control panel and it's gone. I have just tried to get rid of a virus that no anti-virus programs picked up and now I can't open my internet explorer. The control panel was gone before the virus showed up. It was a trojan horse startpage.19.j virus and I found a place that told me how to get rid of it and that I might not to be able to open my internet explorer, but to go to the control panel and reset the internet options and it would work. I can't do that, and now I don't have clue what to do. Any help would be wonderful and I am at my local library using their internet and I don't want to do this anymore.
Thank so much,

A:Help, lost my control panel

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.

A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Warning: running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.
==============================
Download Superantispyware (SAS) free home version

http://www.superantispyware.com/superantispywarefreevspro.html

Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
Click the Scanning Control tab.
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:
o Close browsers before scanning
o Scan for tracking cookies
o Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
o Please leave the others unchecked.
o Click the Close button to leave the control center screen.
On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.
It will quarantine what it found and if it asks if you want to reboot, click Yes.
To retrieve the removal information for me please do the following:
o After reboot, double-click the SUPERAntispyware icon on your desktop.
o Click Preferences. Click the Statistics/Logs tab.
o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
o It will open in your default text editor (such as Notepad/Wordpad).
o Please highlight everything in the notepad, then right-click and choose copy.
Click close and close again to exit the program.
Please paste that information here for me regardless of what it finds with a new HijackThis log.

This will take some time!!!!!!!!

Can anyone please help? A friend was Trojan infected. I an AVG and need now to get to the control panel to get rid of unwanted installs, et al. The Control Panel has been hidden -- it's not on the Start menu anymore and I can't locate it.

Anyone?

Thanks SO much, in advance........

A:HELP! Lost Control Panel!!!!!!!!

Go to here and download 'Hijack This!' self installer.
Save it to the desktop or other suitable place. DO NOT just press run from the website
Double click on the file and it will install to C:\program files\hijackthis and create an entry in the start menu.
Click on the entry in start menu to run HijackThis
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.

I was working on getting my new headset's mic to be recognized by my computer but was unsuccessful. I tried to install an update to my current sound card driver as I had an inkling that might be the problem. However now I have no sound at all. No volume control panel nothing as option is grayed out. I checked the device and it says This device is not working (code 10). I have a realtek sound card. Usually came up in the volume control screen as Avance AC'97 Audio.

Any suggestions. I have downloaded drivers and nothing. Starting to annoy me as now I can't run skype which is the only reason I care about sound. Otherwise I don't use it for anything else. Sound in applications annoy me. However I would like to talk with my best friend on skype again. LOL

Through Stupidity I have lost all the icons in Administrative Tools-Control Panle and wish to
re-instate them, but don't know how. I am using shortcuts from within Sys 32, but IWould prefer the original settings. I'm thinking a lost DLL or registry entries. Any thoughts would be helpful

Thank You

Welcome to the Vista x64 Forums

There's a fix for your missing icons from Microsoft. Here's the link: Icons are missing from Control Panel, or you cannot start Control Panel, the Welcome Center, or games in Windows Vista

Let us know if that helps you.
