    Hello, I got an HP Mini 1000 (1154NR) Netbook with a bad HDD. I bought a new drive and did a fresh installation of Windows 7 Ultimate. The installation went just fine. But when I boot up everything seems normal. My wireless connection gets on to the internet and I can surf. But when I try to open anything such as control panel, windows explorer, Windows Update, and some other things I get an error message (26EE0668-A00A-44D7-9371-BEB064C98683). And below the error code is says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have permission to access the item".

    Other items seem to work fine such as photo gallery, media center.

    Can anyone help - TIA - Dano

    I tried to run scan now but the command prompt wouldn't give me the option to run as administrator.

    But I got it going now. I just reinstalled Windows again and now it's up and running. Thanks for your reply.
