Hey, IÃ‚Â´ve been trying to fix my girlfriends computer for some time now and IÃ‚Â´m having a bit of problems. The thing is itÃ‚Â´s an 11 month old laptop and itÃ‚Â´s running slower than the very first computer that I ever owned. The problem isnÃ‚Â´t in the memory because it has 2GB of memory and IÃ‚Â´ve checked and verified that both are working properly. As a last resort IÃ‚Â´ve saved all her important information on a second disk and tried to do a recovery. I have the recovery CD that was made right after purchase. Now comes the issue, itÃ‚Â´s her computer, no one else is using it and thereÃ‚Â´s no administrator account present. When I tried to do the recovery it gave me the warning that IÃ‚Â´d loose everything from my disk (which IÃ‚Â´m aware of) and that it would basically go back to zero. PERFECT, thatÃ‚Â´s exactly what IÃ‚Â´m asking you to do. The catch is, that it gives me a warning that the C drive is protected and I cannot erase everything thatÃ‚Â´s present. So does anyone know how I can get around that protection and force the computer to take the recovery so it can go back to zero? DonÃ‚Â´t even ask me why itÃ‚Â´s protected because it seems like it has been like that since it was bought.
