Hello,
I am unable to install ANY programs or updates on my pc.
system configuration:
windows 2000 pro service pack 4
BitDefender 2008
Zone Alarm

There have been changes made to the permissions, network sharing and connections.
I am getting Windows cannot open the local policy database.
Access to database has been denied. when trying to access security settings from Admin Tools...although my userid is on the Administrators group with full privileges.

my %systemroot% is set to share, everyone with full access.

I can send a HJT log if requested.

what can I do? there are also many internet pages that are no longer loading (says cookies disabled) even tho they are on the trusted list, and even with BitDefender and ZoneAlarm shut down.

I have knocked up against this for 3 days, but do not seem to be making progress, please help!
Thanks
