Okay I'm having an issue that's causing me to physically abuse my computer. For some reason I can no longer edit user account information. The following options do not work:

Add or Remove User Accounts
Create an Administrator Account
Create an Account
Create Standard User Account
Turn Guest Account On / Off


All the options appear, it's just when I click on them nothing happens?! I'm logged in as Administrator, I even unlocked the hidden Administrator account and am still running into the same issues. As far as answers go all I can find is the typical, "do a system restore", "reinstall Windows", crap like that. I was hoping someone may have a better answer. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64. Can anyone help?

What kind if tweaking has been being done on this machine?

Did this machine come with the problem OS?

If not, where did you get this copy of the OS?

What is your reluctance about System Restore? It is a very good and practical suggestion.

NoAccess rootkit virus, could be any number of things. System restore would be my first choice.
