Question: I tried out a "second opinion" anti-virus program, and immediately, had problems with mouse freezing up. Tried to uninstall the program, wasn't allowed to. Then found out that nothing which required administrator privileges is allowed to me, although I'm still shown as an administrator in the "users" setup. When in safe mode, I still can't do admin stuff, although I am able to run utilities that I'm not able to in normal mode. (the kinds of stuff where when you load, Windows asks if you want to allow that program to make changes) Any suggestions, short of complete re-install? The second opinion AV was "Threatfire" a product that PC-Tools now owns and was highly rated at download.com.
