    system properties doesn't show hardware configuration! HELP!

    I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit. I have a Dual-Core processor with
    1.83GHz and 2GB of RAM. My system rating is 4.6. The only problem is, when I
    go to my system properties in the control panel, it doesn't show any of this.
    after "Rating:" it's just a blank space. "Processor: Not Available", "Memory
    (RAM): Not Available). it shows me my system type but that's it. I know it
    recognizes it because the welcome is able to show it (RAM and processor). Is
    there a setting I changed somewhere that's causing this? How can I get it to
    show these again? Will SP1 solve this problem? Please help

    That's where it's not showing it that it's supposed to.

    1- Open Command Prompt
    2- At the Command Prompt enter the following command exactly as
    written:

    net localgroup "Administrators" "NT Authority\Service" /add

    then press enter and you should be ready to go. It worked like a charm
    for
    me on the two PC's that were having the exact same problem......

    i got this from the vistax64 site
    it worked for me so i hope it works for other people
