    I am operating on WindowsXP and one of my spyware programs has write protected my System 32 files. Now I can't uninstall any of the spywares to un write protect my system nor can I unclick the write protection button without it resetting to protected.

    Does anyone know how I can fix the write protection. I can't install any program with dll's to the system 32 files until I can get this fixed...and I really dont want to have to scrub the whole drive and restart!

    Thanks for any and all suggestions.


    Jenn :)

    and posting the log would be a good start.

    That way we could take a look look at any possible unfreindlies that may be causing this.
