Angry windows 2000

Can anyone help for some reason when I try to right click properties anywhere I get the message that restrictions have been set on the computer and to contact administrator even though I am logged on as administrator!!!!!

Is it part of a domain? If so, the domain policies take presidence over any other, especially if 'No Override' was checked, and that could be your problem. You can be a 'local' administrator and still not be able to do things that the Domain Administrators have locked up.

You could say I've been around.

Try logging in as the local admin of the computer. You should have complete access over that one computer if you haven't changed the access privledges previously.

You might even want to create another local admin and login at that one to see if you can do what you are trying to do.
