Default error: "access to the specified device, path, or file is denied"

when i try to open my system properties under comtrol panel, i get this error message: "access to the specified device, path, or file is denied". it sounded like i would need permission to access it but im an administrator on my workstation and i kno that for sure. i cant add any hardware because of this problem, no new hardware can be found, plz help, this is extremely urgent and needs to be somehow fixed ASAP! thank you.
