A:

Hello mahmoudmito,

Thank you for posting.  The “Computer Management” applet requires Administrator rights to access.  If the account you are using does not have Administrator rights you will not be able to access this.  If the account that you are using has administrator rights and you are still getting this error you account may have become corrupt.  You can follow the steps in this Microsoft Knowledge Base article to fix a corrupted profile:
