Administrative account
Hello everyone. My administrative account is totally useless right now. All of my icons are in word document form and only open in that form which makes everything useless, I can not do anything on this account. I don't know why it happened one day it was just like that so maybe its a virus but i do not know what to do to fix it. I have restored, backed up, everything i could think of to bring it back to the point before it messed up but no such luck. Please help if you can thank you so much.

I suggest you try to check if your computer works normally in Safe Mode, log on as the built-in administrator account.

What did you "restore", considering that System Restore would not work in this situation?
