Hi I seem to have a problem with my computer. There are 4 user accounts on my XP Pro machine. Some how we can not access any of the programs on the desktop or by clicking on the start menu. Every time error messege comes up.

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

The worst thing is u can't evan access the control panel... Can some one please tell me how to sort this out!

right i think this is a windows bug, try downloading all the critical updates from the windows update site ( and looking through for one which says something similar to the error you get, it may not be one of the critical ones
