    Default Settings Changing in Windows 8

    Hello guys,

    Last weekend, it seemed that my laptop has been attacked by virus, so I paid to remove it. But it turned out to be no viruses found. But something has changed and I wanna know how to get those changed things back. Then I clicked on system restore and a mwssage saying "System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your domain Aministrator". WhileI am the only user of my laptop. So I went to accounts it still said I am the Administrator. Then I looked it up in the Startup Menu by enter msconfig, thre was another message saying "An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service. You may need to log on an Administrator account to make specified changes". I'm not clear about what's the matter? Is there anything has been changed when I asked to install the Win 8 OS after checking the virus?

    Many thanks!

    Yes, you have to change the settings in Windows 8 by running as a Administrator. Usually, the logon interface of Windows 8 will display an account as Admin, while it is not the real Administrator. You can get this from the one who installed the operating system for you.
