I am having major issues. I bought my Compaq Pressario desktop this past Feb. It has 2 gig ram, amd anthlon II processor 2.00 ghz, and a 500 gig hard drive running Windows 7 Home Premium. It didn't have service pack 1 which a friend installed from a disk he had as I can't access the Windows update by any means. Through start, controll panel or online through a search engine. I also can't access many things in my controll panel such as add/remove programs, system and others. It's almost as though I don't have admin. rights which I set up as soon as I turnes this machine on. I've run every spy ware prog and antivirus program I have. I can't figure it out but It's VERY frustrating. I discoverd all of this when I tried to install a Logitech web cam on here and the drive wouldn't read the install disk. My friend who has this same machine and bought his a few weels before I got mine has no problems what so ever with his. When he plugged the camera in it worked without installing the software for it. I'm really worried about the update. I've tried to do online scans through pc pitstop but it doesn't work either. Any input will be greatly appreciated. And I apologize if this is in the wrong thread. I've been online for over 10 years and have never had this problem before. I can't even go back and correct the spelling on here that I mis spelled.
