    i have windowsxp with Sp2, framework1.1 & Norton Internet
    Security2005. After allowing automatic updates Ihave run into afew problems
    reccently. they are:-

    1.) I have got this ASP.NET Machine A... account from somewhere in control
    2.) I am logged onto as Administrator but I have lost my Administrative
    rights it appears as:- a.) On right clicking on any file or foldert and
    clicking properties nothing happens,i.e. properties not shown. Same with
    alt+Double click.

    However after connecting to internet the problem 2.) was solved but when I
    restarted my computer the problem resurfaced and now again when i 'm
    connected to internet it seems to have gone away although automatic
    installation of updates is not turned on now.

    Please suggest what to do

  2. I don't see any mention of antivirus or spyware/malware scan.

    I would
    chkdsk /f the drive
    scan for spyware/malware AFTER I updated
    scan for virus's AFTER I updated
    run regclean [download off the internet]
