    Running Xp Pro sp2


    While searching thru the forum I saw one or two other access denied postings. They all knew the program they were working with. I don't know what I did.


    The other day I reinstalled my HP printer and camera. Decided to go to msconfig startup, and uncheck them did not need them to run all the time. A day or two before I downloaded a program called cloned cd 42.02 and left the start up alone. While in startup I decided to uncheck all unneeded programs. Received this error: Access denied error returned while attempting to change a service. Youmay need to log on as adminstratr to make the specified changes. Well, I am the administor.

    As my name states I am not a techie so I decided to go to system restore and restore to a point before any of these were installed. My system restore was turned off. Do not remember ever turning it off. So back to msconfig and tried to delete and after restarting every uncheck I got rid of all the run in the back programs. But, still get the message.

    Tried to change name of administrator still denied access. Ran in normal mode and safe mode.

    Deleted the program cloned cd Reinstalled program. Everything else seems to run great.

    Can this hurt the computer if I dont get rid of it.

    very :confused: :confused: but hopeful you will help
