Okay, get all the "Macs are better" snickering out of your system. I only ever claimed PCs were cheaper!
I can't seem to open the "power options" dialog from the taskbar or control panel...and I can't open the volume control menu...or adjust screen brightness...or access the internet...
The short version is it seems my netbook has disabled all administrator privileges across all my local user accounts. I know how this looks, and I've got Norton antivirus scanning right now, but...is there any chance I did this to myself by accidentally changing some settings?
All I know is I left the computer in sleep mode, but at some point it did a full reboot on its own, thus implementing these new settings. Is this computer infected, or have I just done something stupid with the settings?
Tips, advice, mercy, and canned ham would be greatly appreciated.
It's an HP Mini netbook with Windows 7 starter.
