    I have an old IBM Aptiva win95. I was trying to run Registry Mechanic, and I got a message that said Run-time error '429'

    ActiveX component can't create object. So I went, with the help of Beekeeper to Micro$oft and download "dcom95.exe" but when I went to put it on the 95 I getthe message that this is an illegal operation, after which, when I click that off, I get

    This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

    I thought I had gotten rid of the old owner. Apparently not. Could anyone tell me what to do--aside from reformatting? Any assistance will be well appreciated.

    i dont think the message
    "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"
    has anything to do with a previous owner....
    let me get back to you on that, i had a similar message not too long ago with msn dial up.
