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.

"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....

Thank you, Kerri Ann. I think I've got a little work to do. I'll post back here to tell you if I succeeded. Thanks.
