    Hi all!

    I have two user accounts on my pc, both are administrators and both were working fine til last nite. When I go on my account I cant access any progams other than msn messenger and cant get online, yet the other account is fine. I have run spybot and mcafee virus scan and found nothing, havent changed anything so cant understand why its doing this.

    All help appreciated for a damsel in distress!!

    Go to Control Panel, User Accounts and see if your account type got changed. If it did, you will need to log in as an Admin to change it back.

    You say you can't access programs except MSN (but Spybot and McAfee are programs, too, so you must be able to access some things). What happens when you try to run other programs?
