I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Are you referring to AVG Free Edition ?

If you are, go here to download and save AVG Remover 2011 (32-bit or 64-bit, depending on whether your computer has Vista 32-bit or Vista 64-bit).

Close all open windows first, then double-click the saved tool to run it.

One thingthats just killing me with W7 is the rights issues. I supposedly have full admin rights and this is my home PC and the only other account is guest. I have run that reg file that gives you the take control option on the right click menu. But there is just no end to prompts telling me i can't do this or that or shouldn't etc etc. All sorts of things that are just driving me crazy. Is there a way to end it once and for all and give me total rights to every thing that is possible ?

I just bought a used tower with W7 installed.
A few days ago, I was running a scan, and kept getting popups saying the scanner needed to open a file or launch an application. This sounded suspicious to me, so I unchecked the box to make my decision permanent, then denied them all. There were hundreds of them.
Now when I run any kind of scan, it can't scan these items, telling me they are "locked." But I denied them only temporarily.
I'm not used to this OS. How do I go about removing all those denied permissions? I can only find a way to do it one at a time, and only when I know the name of the file. I don't know their names, or where to find them on my system.
Is there some way to remove those denied permissions, without having to use an older restore point? I'd have to reinstall half of my applications if I did that, I'm sure.

I have Windows Vista service pack 2, recently updated, it's working fine.

When the new Google Reader layout arrived I disliked it and decided to download another RSS reader, Omea. During download it created a folder in Program Files as usual, but Omea didn't work so I tried to uninstall it. While the software shows up in the add/remove programs list, when I try to uninstall it doesn't recognize Omea Reader as even being on the system, saying it's already been removed. I manually removed the software but it has left one file behind I cannot delete because I need "permission." The file is IexploreOmeaW.dll

I already have User Account Control off.

I've tried removing the file from the account I used to download the software as well as from the other account I have on Vista. Neither worked.

I made the file unhidden and changed permissions on it in Properties. That still didn't work.

The path is Program Files -> JetBrains -> Omea Reader -> IexploreOmeaW.dll

What can I do to remove this? Thanks!

Tried to copy all the files I wanted to keep off it so's I can format it and use for something else.

The (win10) copy prog keeps stopping and telling me I need admin permissions.

When I look at the permissions on the files they all refer back to the old computer.

This doesn't happen to all files so I don't really know what's going on.

We're trying to automate using netdom to join machines to the domain. The only problem we've run into is that the account we created to do this has permissions to add a machine, but cannot remove it. We're having trouble finding where to give it that permission in AD.

Can someone clue me in here?

Before someone starts suggesting sysprep, understand that aside from this small issue we've got our image process down to two steps:

1) Boot from a floppy or USB drive to start Ghost pulling whichever image we need
2) Return after the image is done and enter the computer name in a DOS window

Batch files are great. It renames the PC, reboots it, joins it to the domain, reboots, logs inot the domain, installs antivirus, resets the local admin password, removes the automatic login, cleans up all the batch files, and shuts down. And all we have to do is type the computer name.
 

Answer:Granting user permission to remove machine from domain

Open ADUC, go to View, and select Advanced Features. This will give you the Security tab under the Properties view. Then, bring up the Properties for the OU that holds the computer accounts. Find the account you want to give the permissions to, and click Edit. Then, just look for the "Delete Computer Objects" entry.

As title.

I've begun to use TeraCopy, which is much better than the stupid Win7 copy handler. There's just one problem:

When TeraCopy moves a file from a user-owned folder to a public folder, it retains folder's user-level permissions. I can manually give access to Everyone for this folder, but it is very annoying.

So, I'm looking for a way to easily remove a folder's own permission settings and make it use only inherited permissions.

I just migrated data from my old WinXP computer to my new Win7 computer. I noticed that I cannot open the migrated folder c:\documents and settings\user\my documents\ - access is denied.

I changed permissions to allow administrators Full Control of this folder, and the user read/write access. I also took ownership of the folder as an Administrator. However, there is a "Deny" permission which prohibits Everyone from Listing the folder/Reading data. "Deny" permissions override "Allow" permissions, so I can't open the folder even as an Admin with Full Control + Ownership. I tried to remove the "Deny" permission, but it said I was not authorized to do so and told me to try taking Ownership to get authorization. I already have Ownership, so I'm stuck here.

Does anyone know how to remove the "Deny" permission?

Answer:How to remove Uninherited "Deny" permission on specific folder?

The data is in C:\Users not Documents and Settings, it is just a junction that points to C:\Users you need to leave it alone.

Have looked at the other postings about Windows 7 and "You need permission" - this one seems new. I have a laptop and a desktop both running Windows 7, both part of HOMEGROUP.

The desktop has two hard drives (C and D), both shared with full access to EVERYONE.
I can see both but can only update the D drive on the desktop from the laptop. When I try any update (new folder, copy a new file in, etc.) to the C drive, I get the "You need permission" error.

Have tried turning off sharing then turning back on for the C drive and have compared the sharing between C and D - they appear identical. Snipit of C drive permission attached. Any thoughts or ideas on what else to try would be appreciated.

Answer:You need permission - happening on networked drive that has permission

Rather than sharing form the root of the C: drive you should be sharing from the C:>Users folder instead. This is the default setting for Windows and there are many good reasons for this.

For networked drives that were created under a different User name you would also need to allow for sharing using the "Security" tab of the C: drive. The link below shows you how.

You can also set this drive share up at the C:>Users location if desired.

Hi Everyone,

This forum seems like an absolute wealth of knowledge, and about now I have just the right amount of vacuum between my ears to need it...!

I just now came across this forum and signed up, but I'm overwhelmed with the options and don''t know where I should even post my question (if you haven't guessed, I'm pretty much computer ILLiterate!) and I'm hoping you can point me to the right forum.

I know I'm not supposed to ask questions here, I'm just lost and hoping that by explaining a bit of my problem, someone can tell me which forum I should post in.

My situation is that I had a new (larger) hard drive installed in my laptop, (and a whole bunch of other work done to it, it's not the same any more, much better), and I have the old hard drive in a little case that plugs into a USB port so I can still use it.

The problem comes in when I try to access a lot of my photos on the old drive, it says something to the effect that I don't have the correct permission to access that file, I have to be (actually, myself) but the old drive doesn't recognize me anymore).

How do I get the old drive to recognize me on the "new" laptop so I can get access to my pics?

Can anyone please point me to the right forum to ask this?

Thank you very much, I REALLY appreciate your time and help!

Hello,
I just downloaded a trainer for a game and when I try to run it, my AVG says there is a trojan in it, and I think it locked the file. I would like to run the trainer anyway, but when I double click, I get a "Windows cannot access the specified device,path or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to access the item" pop up. I am on my admin account- I only have one account on my XP(SP3),so it must be an admin account right? Well, is there a way I can run the trainer without Windows blocking me? Hope someone here can help out.

Answer:[SOLVED] Need help with file permission

Your profile account is listed as admin, yes, but it's not really the TRUE Admin account. The real one is hidden in the bowels of XP. Go HERE to read more about how to activate the administrator account. You could also try right-clicking on the icon, select "run as" and then select the administrator account on the screen that pops up. I'm assuming you set up an admin password when you installed XP. If not, it might not have one and you can just try pressing ENTER and not insert a password.

Let me know how that works for you.

Which version of Windows 7 do you have? (eg) X86 (32bit) or 64 bit?
If you have X86 Windows and you are downloading 64 bit programs this will not work and give you that error.
When you download the file, change the default save location. If you are trying to run this program from the Temp folder, it would give you that error also. Save the file to your desktop or your downloads folder and then try and run it.

Hi, I have run into a problem in Windows 7 and can't seem to find a way around it, can anyone help?

I need to become the REAL administrator to fix another problem I'm having with a PC game.
From what I've heard there is a hidden administrator with power over everything, if I could just gain access to this account I could sort everything out. I have waded through hundreds of websites looking for an answer to my problem.
I can't change any of the account permissions through the control panel due to the lack of permissions!
I have also heard I can activate the administrator account through the "Command Prompt", In order to do this I am supposed to right click > run as administrator but once again I am en-counted with the same message reading "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item"
It seems there is no way around this but then again I am a beginner at this sort of thing.

Please help!

Take ownership of the file and if necessary, assign your user account the appropriate permissions. Right click the file, go to properties, then Security tab. Click Advanced button, then switch to ownership tab. Should be straight forward from there onwards.

This is a really strange problem that I have. I don't know what it is, but when I create a file from an application such as paint, gimp, notepad,unity, anything really with a name of "Reset" or "Security" I have no permission to it. Like if I name a file with that name, it becomes out of my permission as adminstrator.

Attached is a screenshot showing that the file has no groups once created.

The reason why this is a big problem for me is because a lot of programs are not working right. Any file on my computer with "Reset" or "Security" will not work as I have to add myself to a group which has a permission through the security tab in the properties of the file.

This is just as confusing as it sounds, but I need this to be fixed to finish a project in Unity. My game cannot be saved as Unity creates a file called "Mono.Security.dll" which makes the saving process screw up. This has been bugging me for a bit now, but I need this to stop.

There's probably other filenames that create the problem, but these are 2 that I have figured out.

If you have questions, just ask.

I have a fairly old system (Athlon 64 3300+ 2.4GHz). I had two hard drives one consisting of my c: drive that was 160GB. The second is 320GB partitioned into a D: and E: drive. Running Windows 7 Ultimate (on C: drive)

My C: drive recently failed and I had to replace it. I decided to try an SSD drive ( Kingston V-Series 64GB) installed new drive with Windows 7 without any problems (very nice improvement in performance BTW). By Bios recognizes the now c: drive as the primary boot disk, as well as the d:/e: drives. I am able to access the d: and e: drive without any issues.

The problem I am having is when I try and save a file to these drives (d or e) I receive a message saying I do not have permission to save to this drive (neither d: or e) . I am able to save the file to my C: drive and then copy it over to d: or e:, but this is a pain.

Any suggestions on what I can do to give myself permission to save to this drive. I did not format this drive when I re-installed windows on the new SSD drive as I have a lot of files on it that I did not want to lose. Could this be the reason?

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: No permission to save to second drive

Right click on both drives and go to security. Give yourself permission. Remember you installed the new C drive hence you have new credentials or user name. Give that username/account permission to access the d and e drives.

Answer:[SOLVED] Windows 7 Permission Issue

Hi, welcome to the forums.

Log into your computer with your normal user account (this account should have admin privileges). .pst is by default a hidden file\folder, go to folder options\view and check "show hidden files and folders".

We will use the Icacls cmd to grant ownership, this is a sample (you will need to substitute your user name, for the one used here, mine) assuming the .pst file is on C drive (if not change).

Go to start,search and type:- cmd, search will return cmd.exe right click on this and select "run as administrator" at the prompt type:-


Code:
takeown /f C:\windows
Press enter

SUCCESS: The file (or folder): "C:\windows" now owned by user:- (here you will see your user name, use this instead of "vistatest\paul")

Next type:-


Code:
icacls c:\windows /grant vistatest\paul:f
(press enter)

NOTE:- you will get success and successfully processed messages, after these commands

Next type:-


Code:
takeown /f C:\
(press enter)

Next type:-


Code:
icacls C:\ /grant vistatest\paul:f
Exit out of cmd, Restart computer, and then try your .pst import.

Answer:Solved: \\****** is not accessible.You may not have the permission to use this networ

i don't see anything wrong with your stats. routers should be named with the ip 192.168.0.1, but i don't think that's an issue at this point.

since you're hardwired in it doesn't sound like anything with your router or your internet, or your computer.

actually... wait... i missed this. you need to enable your dhcp lease. if needed you should set it up with a manual address making sure you're not taking up someone else's ip address. if that's an issue with your router (which it could be) you may need to change your router settings so it automatically gives ip ad's to computers via dhcp. if everything is enabled and all your settings are correct you may need to just reboot your router, and then when all connections are active, reboot all your computers.

if that's not it, it's probably a vista bug. i've heard about so many people having problems with vista there's a good chance of that.
that would require a repair with the vista boot discs, or a full reinstall. (hoprefully you won't have to go quite that far, since it's a pain in the *you know what*).

Hi there...

I've recently moved my Outlook folders from one machine to another, exporting the Personal Folder File and then importing it. All worked fine.

But now, when I try and make a sub-folder in my folders list, it refuses. The New Folder option is available when I right click the INBOX folder, but not if I right click any of the sub-folders there-under.

Similarly, it won't let me copy items from one folder to another. Says I don't have permission and that I should right-click the folder and click properties to check permission for the folder. But I can't find anything like that under properties.

It suggests I see the "folder owner or your administrator to change your permissions" but I am both of the above!

I hope someone out there can help me.

I ran Network Wizard to connect the two to share files.
Problem is....
Computer A doesn't have access to files on Computer B
But
Computer B doesnt have access to Computer A

All im getting is the message:
" \\name of computer is not accessible. You might not have permission to use the network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permissions".

Please advise how to solve this.

New computer only a week old, gettin acquainted. (Moving from XP)

Read somewhere I should not expose Admin acct to online risks, etc. So I set up a user acct for myself, as well.

Signed in user acct. Then it said I need to sign in for Admin. (not sure when, wasn't taking notes)

Downloaded a program and proceeded to install it. Message something ilke, "Denied to install in "Programs" and you can do this later.

Trying a second time, I obediently logged out user; In Admin... Can't find program. It isn't in download.

Guessing I need to use Admin to download or do anything but cruise on the net, yes?

Now what?

I have been struggling with this for a month and reading every internet search refference to "you may not have permission.."
so I had done all the suggestions
enable NetBios
disable simple file sharing on XP pro
All using same workgroup name
All with shared folders available.
I did not disable the firewall in SP2

After much effort and time wasted I have solved my XP pro workgroup problem so I have to get this out there. May not be the solution for everyone but seems a lot of people have done all the suggestions and are struggling with this quirk.

I first had discovered that although XP pro would not allow access through the workgroup,
(error: ...not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource ...) I could access the various workgroup computers by entering their IP in the address bar of a folder on XP pro. ie
\\192.168.1.103 or whtever had been asigned by the router.

but the computer "\\name" would not work in the address bar. Even if I could call up the workgroup (sometimes possible), clicking on the computer name would not allow access.

I could not understand why XPpro would see the computer but not recognize its name as a valid workgroup computer.

I have four Windows XP machines. One of these is considered my main computer. All four can see each other. Two of the four have the correct permissions to modify files on the main computer but cannot. The permissions seem to be correct. One of the four does not have permission to modify files on the main computer but can modify files. I can't seem to figure out these two issues. I don't know what changed but it used to work just fine.

Is it best just to rename the workgroup these four computers are in and start from scratch? Is there any harm doing this?
Thanks.

You can configure all of them for Simple Sharing, which should simplify networking. Are you sure this is not a firewall issue?

When I backed up all of my pictures and then restored them all on a new computer the permissions set got messed up. The user account name was the same but the name in the permission list is "unknown user".

I can right click on an individual picture, go to properties, then security and add "Everyone" as a user and give it full permission. But that takes time and I have thousands of pictures.

Is there a way to change the permission on groups of them, rather than just one at a time?

Every day I have another folder or file that won't open because "I" dont have permission. It is getting daily more files forbidden to open. Now I can't even see my own pictures. I never had a problem on any version of Windows until Win7.
I have tried everything I could read up from Google but nothing helps. I just don't understand what to really do to see my files. I am the only one on this computer. I have Kaspersky, run Malwarebytes nearly daily and SuperantiSpyware. I have Malwaresearch so I never open anything that is not green. Nothing is ever found. It does not matter if the folder or files is on the laptop or on an external drive.

What is it that I don't understand how to take ownership of my files? I have not changed anything on the system. Also many of my pictures suddenly refuse to be shown, it says either they are corrupted or too large. I have no problem to see them on the XP laptop. All I want is to delete double files and pictures. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I installed XP on a friend's computer onto a fresh hard drive, leaving his old one on the same IDE channel (it's an old computer), but I just made one master and one slave.

When we went to try and move over his user folder from the old hard drive, it gave us the ol' 'Permission Denied'. I'm being told by a few of my other tech friends that you need to set the security permission for the folder, but I don't really know if that's the solution. I activated the Security tab on all folders, but I haven't tried to mess with it because I don't rightly know what to do.

If anyone has a solution so my friend can get his files off his old user folder, I would be very grateful.

I have a network setup and operating successfully between machines running XP and Visa. The Vista file sharing is currently set to "everyone". I'd like to improve security on the Vista machine by limiting access to users logged on to machines on the network.

When I go to adanced sharing | permissions, the only user names I see are "everyone" and the logged on user name on the Vista machine. When I try to add the user name from the XP computer the check names always fails.

The problem seems to be that the only location recognized for searching is the Vista computer. How can I add the XP computer as a place to search? Or am I missing something else?

Answer:Solved: no flash install permission XP home

Sounds like your firewall is not able enough, the one built in to XP certainly isn't. You need a third-party firewall. I use Norton Internet Security and I've never had any of the problems you've had - none at all in fact. For good protection you have to pay for it.

Wipe your drive (not just a format) with DBAN from a bootable CD: http://www.dban.org/ (some malware can survive a format, but not when wiped with DBAN).

Then re-install Windows and immediately install a decent firewall ( plus antivirus of course).

Hi,

I have tried to delete the file but I get the message " you require permission from SYSTEM to to make changes to this folder".

I am already signed in as the administrator and I have removed the protection from the C drive but I am still getting the message above.

My system has 3 computers running Windows XP Professional on a Microsoft Workgroup Network with usernames that DO NOT use passwords. It is used in my home and access is restricted to my family and not the Internet by the personal firewall and router firewalls.

This lack of a user password has caused problems in the past with Task Scheduler not working correctly and I have modified the Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa to change limitblankpassworduse to "0" instead of "1" to make the scheduler work correctly.

I purchased a new terabyte external hard drive that was pre-formatted as an NTFS single partition to use as a backup drive using Norton Ghost.

I regularly have shared the hard drive on one of my computers with the other two, so I am familiar with sharing and Security rights.

When the new drive was added to the main computer either as a USB attached drive or as an eSATA connection, I could read and write to the drive from the main computer. However, when I marked it as a shared drive with full rights to others, I could see it from my remote networked computer but when accessed I would get the message: "<drive name> is not accessible.

Hello my friends:

I don't know if this is a Vista issue or a MS Word issue:

I tried to "save as" a document specifically to my personally named user folder and got an error message that said:

// "C:\Users\Paul\Documents\Forex\Forex newsletter.docx
// You don't have permission to save in this location.
// Contact the administrator to obtain permission.
//
// Would you like to save in the Documents folder instead?"

I am the administrator and I don't know what's going on with this! I'd give the permission if I knew how!

Is this related?
I've noticed that I have inadvertently been using the "user/documents" path for some saves and I've wanted (still do) to STOP using that and make my own, named folder the default.

How do I stop getting these messages and how to I change the default save to the folder I really want to be using?

Sometimes I feel that Vista is an example of over-improvement and is less easy to use...like now. I *hate* having to waste precious time with little, diddly-squat issues like this one!

Soapbox:
It seems to me that good software ought to seem "invisible" to the user and the tasks for which it is used (like a good sound system should be invisible to the music it conveys). I don't think Vista is really terrible, but I just wish programmers would know when to stop being overly helpful.

Yesterday I successfully managed to share my Windows 7 Home Premium PC with my home network so that I can access it for file management from other computers on my network at home. I have got full access to the Windows 7 PC from a Netbook running XP and from a Macbook laptop but.... when I try to access the macbook shared folder called Drop Box from either the Windows 7 PC or from the Netbook XP, the Windows system denies access to the Folder. Both computers can see the Drop Box folder in the list but a box comes up with this message:-

Windows cannot access \\MACINTOSH\drop box You do not have permission to access \\MACINTOSH\drop box Contact
your network administrator to request access.

So I was puzzled by this as I am the administrator on the Windows 7 and I have set access to the drop box folder on the macbook by putting a tick in the SHARED FOLDER for that specific folder. And the macbook is communicating on the same shared network WORKGROUP and sees the Windows PC by its normal name in the correct way.

Confused beyond belief, I looked up the help and it only tells me to contact the owner of the folder and ask permission to access the file. This is quite ridiculous or appears that way as I have given it all the permissions that I know how to.

I also found that the macbook will happily send and fetch files from the Windows 7 PC but it won't send a document to the Printer (Canon) on the windows 7 even though I have set that printer as shared.

Skipping the long story, I'll just say that I had to wipe my drive and reinstall Vista from scratch. I knew I was going to have to do it before my computer completely choked, though, so I went to the Drivers folder and copied everything directly onto an external harddrive. I thought I could then reinstall Vista from a disk, copy/paste the drivers for my hardware, and I'd be good to go.

I have reinstalled Vista (I didn't get a disk with the laptop, so this was a general Windows setup disk that I got from somebody else without my laptop's drivers on it [w/ my own key, of course]) and all went well with that. I have, however, mediocre sound and video, no wireless, etc. So I copied/pasted my drivers into the Drivers folder. Except when I did, I had to skip overwriting ~228 "conflicts" because I didn't have permission to do that. I tried to change the "Read Only" setting on the folder, but I got the same message about permission and access being denied. So I can't install all my drivers, and I suspect if I could, everything would start working.

Is there anyway I can get Vista to let me do this, or am I going about it the wrong way?

Answer:[SOLVED] Just reinstalled Vista: need permission to reinstall drivers

You could go to the manufacture web site of the laptop and download the drivers save to disk or flash drive from the computer you are on now and transfer them to the laptop.

Ok, Vista Ult. on an nVidia MOBO, quad CPU 2.4 GHz(intel) 4Gig Ram 1Gig nVidia Video.
Ok, so the system can "rock with Vista", but suddenly, the "local" admin account lost permissions for 50% of ALL programs and folders. Then the same day, the "hidden" admin account, cannot run, access, remove, or make file or program changes. what gives????

I ran the admin cmd "takeown" for the hidden admin account, but that didn't make any change in the permissions. Programs still request "You do not have permission to ________" you fill in the blank, it occurs with anything . . .
Any ideas as to how one re-sets global permissions for an "admin" account?

Oh, and yes, I have A/V and antimalware running, upto date, and have scanned the whole system. AVG, SuperAntiSpyware, AdAware, Spysweeper,
Rootkit revealer, etc . . . All clean??
Any help would be GREAT !!!!!!!

Answer:[SOLVED] Hidden Admin no longer has permission rights?

Hi, how did you activate the "hidden admin" account in Vista? I use it occasionally and requires that I open a CMD prompt by right clicking and selecting "run as administrator" (you can set this to always be the case) now at the prompt type :- net user administrator /active:yes or to turn off substitute "yes " with "no". Reboot to have the Admin option on boot.

Greetings.
My old PC was threatening to konk out in a major way, so I made certain to back up all important data before it finally gave up the ghost. The most important data for us is, of course, our email.
I was running Outlook 2002 on Windows XP for quite a long time. I backed up our Outlook 2002 personal folders as .pst files.
Our old machine zonked out and today we bought a machine with Vista installed. I have successfully gotten Office XP with Outlook 2003 installed onto the new PC and am now trying to import our old email folders from the backup I made.

Unfortunately, when I try to import the files, I am presented with the following error:

File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file E:\inbox.pst

I hope that someone here is able to tell me that all is not lost and that I will not have to tell my wife that all of our backedf up email is gone, gone, gone.

Any help will be appreciated.

Just make sure the file is not read-only, and if E is a CD. copy it to your hard drive and then try again.

My Vista Ultimate Laptop had a problem installing a new printer but I think this was only a symptom of what might be the real problem. The thread that helped me solve the printer install is here: [SOLVED] Can't install printer drivers for Brother MFC-J615W

After uninstalling Vista Ultimate sp2 I reinstalled Ultimate using the upgrade dvd I have. I was able to install the printer after that BUT I have lost a few programs that don't want to reinstall or allow me to uninstall and reinstall without telling me that I do not have permission to delete or change certain files. I tried repairing the permissions and I am attaching the Scesrv.log file here. I'm not a tech person; but glancing through this log it looks like I must have set up the Administrator account wrong? I am the administrator but it also says there is no administrator and the administrator is not signed in etc. I think I get a general idea but do not have an understanding of what is in the log file. I can definitely follow instructions!

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

So I've been having troubles with my computer and reformatted my Vista hard drive (two partitions on two drives). My Vista is working perfectly now, but I cannot say that much about XP. I have the XP installation disc, but I need to grab a few files from it. It's been a little too long since my last backup.

Now the problem is, one of my folders says I don't have permission to access it. I do not change the permission on my folders, I am positive that this one does not have any changed permissions. Anyways, it tells me that I've been denied and to change the permissions.

I've gone in and changed the permission of the folder, it's a large folder with tons of small files in it, thousands of files I've placed there. However, it always reverts the permissions back to what they previously were, which is not accept or deny anything. I've specifically changed it to my user, which is the admin account and has full access.

However, when changing individual folders (ones that do not have sub-folders, it seems to allow it and let me change it to myself, and then copy the folder). There's just too many folders to do that. Help?

I messed up! Big time. (at least in my mind)

I have a laptop with a drive that is partitioned. C = programs and D = files, pics, music, etc. I have to share my laptop with a family member for awhile and I don't like them looking at my stuff, so I thought I would be savvy and change the permissions so they, as a user, couldn't read or write that drive. Since I have a administrator account I figured this was the best way to protect my privacy. WRONG!!! Now when I log in, as me, the administrator, I can not access the drive. If I click on My Computer, I see drive C with 11gb free, but drive D just says NFTS.

How can I undo this mistake?

Thanks for the HELP !!!

How to remove the "Authenticated Users" "Create Folders" permission from the root of the C Drive via command-line?
I know this question has been asked many times before, but nothing works for us!

Hello everyone!

I come here with a "bug" that is really really starting to cause problems.

Firstly, I would like to direct you to this thread.

I asked for help on another forum and well you can see what we went through, however they were not able to completely solve the problem.

I've done some quick tests, and it has basically ended up being that whenever an exe file is involved, Windows will go crazy with permissions or something.

The behaviour is pretty much that I try to delete a folder with exe files in it, and it will tell me that I do not have permission to do so. If I go inside the folder, I can delete the files no problem. Once they're gone, I can delete the folder.

But other instances are that when I try to delete some files, the file will remain, but it won't be there, my computer will say that I need to specify the correct path. Then after a few minutes, the file will actually disappear.

This has become quite a nuisance, because for example, I need to run Punkbuster so I can play some games. Punkbuster runs 2 services, PnkbstrA.exe and PnkbstrB.exe

PnkbstrB.exe is created by PnkbstrA.exe when a game is launched and it's updated on-the-fly. This is a problem, since my system will then deny access to PnkbstrB.exe, so A can't delete/update or do anything to the file for a few minutes, and I'll just end up being kicked in-game because I don't have B.

If I go into the Syswow64 folder, B is there, but you can'... Read more

I recently uninstalled Windows SP3 RC1 from my computer and reverted back to Windows SP2 through the use of Projekt (Project) Dakota. http://www.theatticnetwork.net/

Before uninstallation though, one of my siblings had run this script to update to Windows SP3 RC2. I do not want to install the newest RC2, as I'm now waiting for a final release. I changed my Windows Update Settings to download but to not install, as it was already downloaded from yesterday.

Is there anyway to remove the already downloaded but not installed update for Windows SP3 RC2, and is there anyway to remove the script (that tells the computer to download SP3 RC2?)

I have tried previously to uninstall my HP Officejet G85 printer from HP Pavilion a1130n running XP Media. There is no Change/Remove button in Add/Remove Programs (but the program is there, 150 MB), and the file suggested on the HP website for uninstalling older printers from XP produces a message that it's "unsupported" (can't remember exact verbiage, been a while since last tried).

Even reinstalled in the hopes that a message would come up to the effect "this program is already installed, do you want install to remove it prior to completing this install," but it just installs the printer again with a number after it ... I'm up to "hp officejet g series - 3."

Now I have the mother of all paper jams and black ink leaking out of the underside of the g85, so I have no choice due to work deadlines and time constraints but to physically remove it and install a new printer tomorrow.

Any hope of removing this from my system altogether and starting fresh before installing another printer????

Dear All,

I would like to install the program Treefinder (http://www.treefinder.de/) to a notebook with Windows Vista Home Premium. The installation script is in a file "install.js":

var WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell");

var path = WScript.ScriptFullName;
var tfdir = path.substr(0,path.lastIndexOf("\\"));

var env = WSHShell.Environment("SYSTEM");
env.Item( "TFDIR" ) = tfdir;

var shortcut = WSHShell.CreateShortcut(tfdir + "\\-TREEFINDER-.lnk");
shortcut.TargetPath = tfdir + "\\treefinder.js";
shortcut.WorkingDirectory = "";
shortcut.WindowStyle = 4;
shortcut.IconLocation = tfdir + "\\icon32.ico";
shortcut.Save();

The machine has:
java version "1.6.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode, sharing).

Hi! I do not know when and why did this happen but whoever invented this paranoid (hidemysecretsfrommywife) control system of sharing and permissions should be declared as the Enemy of Mankind, or the Antichrist!
I can understand that one wants to protect C: from malwares. But have you seen a malware attacking an external drive???

I have Windows7, I have an external drive where I store all my pictures taken and my music files. I already tried everything advanced sharing and so on. Still: I can only create a new folder with a right click in the drive or inside existing folders but I can not do anything else. The disk is write protected, check write permissions.
In fact, the disk isn't write protected.

If I create a new folder, I can put in it and do whatever I want inside the new folder. But I have no permission to do anything outside a new folder, i.e. with my original media files!

Why? Who does benefit from this? What is this craziness???

Answer:[SOLVED] No permission to create/ move, copy, delete files in external hard drive

Hi akofalvi.

Try this:

1. Start > Run "cmd" (this opens a command prompt window)
2. type--> diskpart (this will open another command window in a few seconds)
3. type--> list volume (this will list all of the volumes currently recognized in your system)
4. type--> select volume # (this number is going to be your external drive)
5. type--> attributes disk clear readonly

I will say this: this procedure has been met with mixed results and your problem may return. Some have even had this issue and it turned out to be a setting in Windows Media Player of all things (whoda thunk?) One responder in a forum had this to say about this very problem: what i found to fix this was to remove the settings in media player allowing it to re-organize and rename files, after which i went to the tools/advanced/restore media library and allowed it to dump my current library and reset it. That's just an FYI.

I hope that'll help. Let me know.

Good day!

Mike

PS: As an afterthought, you may need to log in to the REAL administrator account (which needs to be activated manually) and set your permissions there for your regular user name. We'll go down that path if the above procedure doesn't net you anything positive.
