Hi, I'm hoping someone can help. I had a failure on my HD, and had to restore back to factory settings. My user account is set as administrator. I can't access secure websites unless I run the program as Administrator (on Chrome & IE8). Also have a "corrupt default search provider" on IE8. I can't change the default search provider unless I run the program as administrator, but when I open IE8 normally it defaults back to the corrupt error. Getting the same problem with Windows Live Mail (have to run program as Administrator otherwise I get an error message). Outlook also won't remember my account passwords. I think all of these issues are due to User Account Privileges, but I don't understand why if my account is already set to be Administrator.
Any suggestions please?
