Do you get any location (ie C:/program files . . .) in the error message you get that states access denied ?
Did we make any recent change to the computer ?

Hi, Dinesh! No, there is no location indicated when the "access denied" message comes on when i try to install McAfee Virtual Technician while in admin logon.
Another strange behavior is that sometimes i can uninstall a program and sometimes i cannot uninstall; case in point was Open Office. Previously i could not uninstall, but miracle of miracles, yesterday april 1 i was able to uninstall.
I am tempted to nuke the hard disk, but as much as possible i don't want to go through the format/reinstall route. I do have work file back up in DVD's and partly in an external hard disk. I am using Windows Vista Home Premium.
I am doing this communication through my laptop which is the subject of this discussion, from my limited user log on.
Have i done any recent change to my computer? It is difficult to answer that question in detail. About a month ago, I used a Speedbit utility to speed up my laptop PC. But it was only this week that i noticed the Windows Sidebar dialogue box on Settings.ini is being used by another process, mainly because i usually work in my limited user log on and seldom do i visit the admin logon.
