Hi everyone! Not really sure if this is in the right threat, but not really sure where else to put it. I have had an old company computer from my work due to them upgrading, however I have no system recovery disk so cant reset to factory settings, have previously had messenger on there in my work, however the IT guy removed it and put a block of some sort on there, the only instant messaging product I can use is the very old windows standard messenger. I keep getting an error message advising that there is is a software restriction when I try to install msn or windows live messenger??? Does anyone have any idea at all how I can get this removed without wiping all of the data for my work as I still need access to the products etc from home. I have also tried system restore to an earlier date but it doesn't go back far enough. Any help would be much apprecieated.
