    Hi,


    I am at the point where I don't know whether or not to flush my system and restart all over again. I am trying to uninstall and reinstall programs like "I tunes" And "Quick time" and others of course to clean up unwanted programs on my computer. But I always get messages like this "You do not have sufficient access to uninstall this program please contact your system administrator" Or " The system administrator has set pollocies to prevent this installation." I can't uninstall any programs even "silver light"But the Problems is that I am logged on as the administrator. I can't remove anything. I have tried changing preferences for the administrator and still no luck. Does anyone know of anything I could try. :mad::mad::mad:

    I am using Norton for all my stuff.
    and firefox for my browsers.


    Let me know...

    Have you run any registry cleaners or "system optimizers" that may have damaged your system and uninstallers?

    You may be infected. Any other problems? Why are you doing all the uninstalling/reinstalling?
