    I cannot access Programs and Features

    It says it has been disabled by the administrator. I am logged onto an account with admin privileges. How can I enable these features and others that seem to be disabled. I have Home Premium 32bit. The computer is running sluggishly and I am trying to remove programs that may be viruses or that are just taking up space. Any help would be great, thx in advance.

    Hello again!

    Save the log to your machine, then use the "paperclip" in the reply window
    to post it here at the forums.

    Use the yellow "Post Reply" button on the left side not the "Quick" reply.
