This was posted to me from a friend. could anyone here help?

For some reason I am being denied administrator rights on my pc even though I am the admin. Examples include the task manager, which I now fixed, said "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator" when I hit Ctrl Alt Del; also if I try to update AntiVir it says: "The internet update program could not be started! Windows error message: Acess is denied." I checked out user accounts and it does say Im the administrator and have the power to do stuff its not letting me do. This might be the result of some viruses but I think i got rid of them for the most part. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

The viruses you mention may have changed various settings to deny you control. They may also be active and killing your anti virus when you try tpo run it.

Try booting into Safe Mode and then running an AV scan.

Also can you tell us what viruses you had?
