  • Hi,

     

    According to your description, I suggest to perform these tests to troubleshoot the issue:

    1 Logon on with Clean Boot

     

    2 If you use IE to download files, reset IE advanced settings for test. Also save the files to other location.

     

    If the issue persists, try to create another administrator account and logon to see if the same issue occurs.

  • Thank you for the response.  However, neither worked.  I reset internet explorer's files and it did nothing.  (If IE means internet explorer..)   I tried following the instructions for clean boot but when I tried opening the system configuration it gave me the same error message as before so I couldn't even do a clean boot.   My system administrator settings won't let me log into any other account or create one either.  When I click on the options under user accounts the window kind of changes colors a bit when I click but absolutely nothing happens.  No password prompt, no new windows open, nothing.  I don't know what to do.  Any other suggestions??  It would be greatly appreciated!!!
