help me help my dad PLEASE [gateway; home essentials; win98SE]
They say that older people shouldn’t drive - the same goes for computers.
Anyway - after spending 3 hours on his p.c. - I have it running about 70% better. He had lots of problems.
I have 2 things yet to fix. IE6.0 will get errors and shut down 95% of the time. No big deal - I’ll just uninstall it and reinstall it and see if that fixes it.
However, NONE of his program files have the option to uninstall. And when I go into Control Panel, Add/Remove it says, "access denied, the specified file cannot be accessed"
This goes for ANY icon in control panel. I have no clue as to how to fix it.
Sounds like someone set up Administration rights, but I aint sure. We are not prompted for a log in or password on boot up.
He has WIN98SE.
Can you PLEASE HELP ME. All I want for now is access to the features in Control Panel
