You sir, are screwed. Format your HD and reinstall your OS. You do have
your original Vista disk don't you?

This will reveal my ignorance, so be kind. I am unable to run programs
like ICQ and another one I need to work from home when necessary, it
keeps telling me I have to be the Administrator, but I AM the
Administrator. I've even set up a new account but it still won't run.
I called E-machines, who referred me to MSN, who told me it isn't their
problem...which I don't understand how he could tell since he obviously
was in India or somewhere in that region and could barely speak English.
Anyway, I was wondering if the problem might be because I am using a
trial version of Vista that came with the E-machine? Does anyone know??
I was perfectly happy with my XP until my husband tried to increase the
memory by adding a board that was too big and blew the motherboard...God
love him! Any help is appreciated!!

Right-click your programs shortcut and "Run as administrator"
Or better ...
In the preferences of your shortcut, mark the "Run as Administrator".

Normally you will run programs as standard user, even though you are sat up
as Admin - but when it is nescersary for a program to be run by an Admin, it
tells you.

There are some other ways to get rid of the problem, but they include
security riscs.
