WIN 2k - local permission

Question: WIN 2k - local permission

is there a way to set up local permissions for users on win2k?

what i want to do is stop one user from being able to access certain folders.

i have tried setting up permissions on a folder in both FAT32 and NTFS partitions setting only the admin account and my account to access these folders, but when i log on as another user these folders are still available.

Preferred Solution: WIN 2k - local permission

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.)

Answer: WIN 2k - local permission

you have to make sure that the user is not part of the admin group, or have admin properties.. here is a step by step guide on setting up users..

Hi Ewa,
It's just a example instead of your real ID.
The ID of yours {316CDED5-E4AE-4B15-9113-7055D84DCC97} must be in that list. Have you attempt to find it?

It's not always RunTime Broker, but can be Immersive Shell, WSearch and others. The name most always shows up when the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE AppID "Default" entry is displayed in the right column - in this case {F72671A9-012C-4725-9D2F-2A4D32D65169}.

The key was right-clicked and exported for safety. Then it was deleted, and the error vanished.

Interestingly, when Dcom was opened later it prompted to update a missing entry, which was done. Thereafter the AppID reappeared in the registry and its default was listed as CDP Remote Text Handler. No further edits/additions were made to that entry in Dcom.

hi all !
i have big mindf*** going on here..
i have 3 computers,

A - win7 ultimate x64 (PC) (LAN connected)
B - win7 professional x64 (laptop) (WLAN connected)
C - win7 ultimate x32 (laptop) (WLAN connected)

Theyre all connected on the same HUAWEI B260a wireless gateway, and theyre all under the same workgroup and connected within a homegroup
Standard shared public libraries (music, picture..) are visible and accessible for all of them with each other.

PROBLEM is @ network location
1) when i access from computer A to comp's B hard drive partition its all ok but it cannot access shared partition on computer C (but its visible)
2) computer B cannot access either one of their partitions
3) computer C can access everything and all

All of the HDs partitions are shared

* WHEN I SHARE FILES OR FOLDERS WITHIN ANY PARTITION ON ANY COMP, THAT FILE IS VISIBLE AND ACCESSIBLE FOR EACH ONE OF THEM..


BIG QUESTION

how can i share my PARTITIONS and make them accessible for each computer without having permission troubles?

ive even assigned static ip adresses for each computer (though they comunicate with each other ok so it wasnt necessary to do that)

ofc, partitions are shared, FWs are disabled, all of the necessary services are enabled, there are no AVs blocking traffic
- but because of line under * stated above, nothing of this is actually important

Please help and ease my mind.

Ty in advance..

Answer:local homegroup failing to access - no permission

I have only used "workGroup" (Give it a name) for all pc's on the network in advance sharing set permissions for each partition. Make sure 'everyone" is in the group list, in security in the group or users that 'everyone" is in the list as well. If necessary switch off homegroup (through control panel to do this) also check that you search for the pc's through its name. check firewall setting for access for file and printer sharing also network discovery is enabled in the firewall

I have just set up a computer with Windows 7, and I'm apparently missing something simple, but I just can't find it.

I installed Windows 7 on the machine and everything works great. I then joined the computer to a 2003 Server domain. Everything still appeared to work fine. However, when I log into the domain on the Windows 7 computer, I don't have the correct permissions on the local machine.

I can access the domain. The login works fine. There are no errors. However, when I try and access anything on the local drive, like explorer.exe, it tells me that I don't have the permissions to access it. I can run some programs, in some directories (like Program Files), but if I try and run anything in the Windows directory, I don't have permission. I can access things on the domain, and I can even use Firefox to view the contents of domain machines, mapped network drives, and even the local C drive. I just cannot run anything that's in the local Windows directory.

I can access the local drive using either the domain administrator account, or the local machine administrator account. However, using either of those accounts, I'm not allowed to change permissions on that folder! I can see that the folder is set as read only, but when I attempt to remove the read-only flag (using either account), it tells me that I don't have permission to do that.

I've also tried to give the domain user administrator permission on the local machine, but that has no effect either. That part really con... Read more

This thread at TechNet seems to relate to your problem. It mentioned something about you need to set the password the same as the Administrator's password of the Windows 2000 system. And also you need to change the NTLM authentication level in Windows 7. Even though you are on server 03 this may still apply.

My Windows 10 computers are joined to an Azure Active Directory without my permission. I did not actively join an Azure AD on the settings/accounts/access work or school account page or on the System about page. When I go to any of these settings pages there is not option to join or leave an Azure AD. I also found a provisioning package being applied to the computer at logon. Presumably coming from the Azure AD that the computer is linked to. How do I disconnect my computers from whatever active directory they are joined to?
Details: The computers are personal home use computers that should not be joined to any organization's active directory. Every time a new computer is setup in my house it gets joined to an unknown Azure Active Directory. During setup and subsequent updates the computers are automatically joined to some active directory without input from the local user.

The computers have not been used for anything aside from surfing the web for a solution. They are out of the box with setup and updates completed.

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.

A wire came loose in my laptop charger so I asked for a replacement, but the supplier was adamant that there was something wrong with the port in my laptop, not the charger (he was wrong), so they took it away to fix. Anyway, a member of their staff took my hard drive out to copy a couple of my files to a disk for me as I needed them asap and couldn't get my laptop charging. Apparently that's all they did.

Today I got my laptop back and things are not right. I am the administrator and there are no other user accounts on my computer. I am recognised as the administrator when I go on Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts. But now all of a sudden I can't access Music, Pictures, Videos or Documents from the start menu.

It didn't let me and didn't come up with any error message. It also didn't let me see the properties of them or do any of the other right-click options. It was saying at the bottom that they were completely empty, so I just deleted them and thought I'd make new ones with the 'Create Library' option.

I am Local Address and I am Local Host but also listed are different IP's as Local Address and Local Host.

The ones showing up as local address and local host with me are

So how can they and I both be Local Address and Local Host and using different IP addresses?

Hello,
I'm currently in the process of testing/deploying IE11 in our environment and I've begun testing on the IE11 Enterprise Site List manager.
I've read that there are a few different ways to configure the XML file to apply via GPO per the article below.  HTTP, Local Network, Local File. (https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/Dn640699.aspx)
In my isolated testing I've chosen to use the local file method which is very easy to setup and use on a testing machine.
It looks like we have the flexibility to choose how we apply the XML file, and I was curious what the best options are and why?  Also are there examples of each setup being used and the benefits/downsides to each?
Here's the options that I can see using:
1. HTTP - setup an IIS website to host the XML file.
2. Local Network (UNC) - setup a UNC path on our DFS where we store the current XML file and users would have read only access to that location.
3. Local File - We could just deploy the XML file via SCCM package/application when updates to the list are required.
Could anyone please point me towards some articles, etc, explaining the pro's and cons of these methods and why I might want to choose one over the other?  I'm leaning towards just using a DFS share and option #2 because it doesn't require us to maintain
an IIS site for it but I am curious to hear if there might be any downsides to this method, or benefits to going with another method.
Thanks!

You can already selectively sign into the apps like the store, groove, film and music etc.
I use a local account and i can download apps + games as i have only signed into the store.

First, the important intro: I'm running two Win7 systems: my desktop runs 64bit Win7 Ultimate, the laptop is Win7 64bit home version. Both were clean installs, are routinely scanned for viruses, malware, hardware problems, regularly defragged, etc. I run lean machines; the only TSR (for all you DOS gurus!!) I run is Antivir (running in the background).

The problems

Most of us have seen these error msgs from time to time: "you need permission to perform this action", or "you require permission from the computer's administrator...", and less often "you cannot delete file as it is open in another....".

Every now and then, my computers tell me I cannot rename, delete, move, or open a particular folder or file. The folders//files in question are NOT system, hidden, page, shared, locked, etc. They could be something I've installed yesterday, a game for my wife for example, mp3s, whatever. For the love of Pete I can't figure out WHY this is happening!!!! But wait, there's more! This does NOT occur all of the time, but seems to be a hit and miss event...joy!

Example: A folder contains a bunch of files, plus one or two sub-folders. I click on the folder, tap the delete key, or use the context menu delete command, then one of the above errors pop up. OK, I open the folder, select all, tap the delete key, and poof, everything IS deleted. Back up one level, delete the folder. WTF is going on ? I may have to drill down to the lowest sub-folder l...

You apparently chose a different partition for the installation, that's it. You can still download whatever you want, you just have to pick a destination folder that's outside of drive E (e.g. drive C). You could also simply create a folder on drive C and map it to the download folder on drive E. I for one would perform a fresh install though and put Windows back on drive C. There are ways to move Windows over to a different location and simply edit the master boot record in order to tell it where to find the boot up files. But it's nothing I would recommend anyone to do, as it can still cause issues with 3rd party applications.

Update: see iperf tests below. Issue appears to be OS-related. No speed problems on Linux boxes, Windows causes upload slowdown.

Issue: using local gigabit network uploads peak at 7-10MB/s while downloads fully saturate the link at 110MB/s. This happens whether connected to a switch or with computers connected directly, as well as with a NAS. Both NICs confirmed to connect at gigabit speeds. I've updated NIC drivers to the latest. I've tried enabling and disabling Large Send Offload. Netbios is enabled.

I've tested laptop-switch-desktop, laptop-switch-NAS, desktop-switch-NAS, desktop-laptop, desktop-NAS and laptop-NAS connections using various cables and the end result is the same - downloads are at full 1000Mbps speed and uploads barely reach 100Mbps.

Any suggestions where to start looking here as wiring and NICs seem to have been eliminated as culprits?

Answer:Local network: uploads way slower than downloads on local network

Hi there

Not sure if the router has something to do with it - especially if it's an el-cheapo one from a typical ISP. There might be some fiddly parameters and also full duplex mode should be used.

Even though you are on a LOCAL LAN the whole kybosh still has to pass through the router -- that's the next place where I'd start looking for problems.

If you've directly connected the computers - via a "reversing LAN cable" and you aren't getting full speeds there's got to be something in the parameters of the NIC's.

I suspect that since until recently it was hard to get anything like 100Mb/s on UPLOAD this issue was never really dealt with - download speeds of nearly 1Gb/s have been available for ages now so the hardware is well fit for purpose.

Try also say using an FTP client l to transfer files rather than File explorer and see if that makes any difference.

Filezilla (it's free and has both a client and a server version).

FileZilla - The free FTP solution

Another issue could be the speed and buffer size of the HDD's themselves -- WRITE might be really slow which will kill your upload speed -- READS are often very much faster. If you've got an SSD connect say to your NAS via SATA-->USB3 adapter cable and copy a say 4GB file to the SSD -- now try your upload from the SSD and see what speed you get to the remote computer - first over direct LAN cable and then via the router. Ideally you should use an SSD on each end to test of course -- note ... Read more

I use a program at my office that stores data in the local program folder on my pc. However i also use this program on my tablet (surface pro 3). these are both windows devices (7,8 respectively) so i'm hoping that works to my advantage.
 
Most of the resolutions i found on google involved using my OneDrive; however the "Local" folder is approx 15 GB depending on the number of projects so this is not an option.
I would rather find a solution that does not involve an external HDD at this is just one more piece of equipment to carry and i worry about performance issues while working on the projects.
 
In my opinion the ideal solution is:
Use the program while i am at the office, the files save to the "Local" folder on my PC and then when my tablet is "awake" the modified files automatically sync over our wifi connection.
 
The wifi aspect isnt a deal breaker, i am fine with syncing via a USB 3.0 cord as well.
 
The main goal is i want the projects/data from the "Local" folder to sync with either my PC or my tablet (depending on which file has the most recent time stamp). So obviously if i work on a project during the week and need to view/modify it outside the office, any changes made will sync to the PC the next time I connect via the wifi or USB.

Answer:Sync local folder on office pc w/ local folder on Surface Pro???

I would agree that having a cloud storage would be nice should the office server go down. You do know that you don't have to sync the entire share folder and programs right? You can sync just individual files that are actually being used and changed. As far as extra storage goes, no need to tote around an external HD. Why not get a couple USB 3.0 flash drives or sdcards? And I really do mean get 2-3, just in case one should fail you have some kind of a backup. You can never rely on a single backup.

Hi

We upgraded our desktops from Windows XP to Windows 7, with Windows XP we used the resource kitís CDROMLOCK.EXE to lock down CD and DVD. Once installed a user had to be in the local administrators group to access a CD or DVD on that desktop.

For Windows 7 it is not Windows 7 compatible so I run the EXE in Vista SP-2 Compatibility mode, which works perfect.

My question: With a user in the local admin group they have access to the CD and DVD, but also have full access to the desktop, which is of concern. Does anyone know how to assign a user name (Either local Desktop or a Server 2003\2008\2010) domain account to a service or Exe?

Is there a way to either create a folder with full rights and then put the exe in the folder, giving the user full admin rights to the folder, or assign full admin rights to s single EXE file?

I am just not sure how Windows 7 controls local admin rights other than the local Admin Group.

If this is in the wrong group, please move.

Thanks

B.
 

Answer:Assign Local Admin Rights without local Admin Group

You should be able to right-click on the exe file, then choose properties. On the "Compatibility" tab, there should be a checkbox for "Run as administrator", which you can check (enable) and save settings.

Hi all, this originally started with an issue with the wireless. I recently installed a D-Link DIR-515 wireless router and did a basic setup, giving it WPA2 security. My Vista computer originally was able to connect to the router with Internet (and before that, to the modem directly with Ethernet), but it was infected by the Vista Security 2012 virus, which I removed after following some steps and MBAM. Since then, it can no longer connect to the wireless network, so I Googled the issue, and did a few things:
- Norton Remover,
- In command prompt, ipconfig and netsh + .... (some commands that reset/refreshed IP/DNS or something along those lines)
- Going to wireless settings and disabling ipV6
- Going to wireless setting and manually giving it an IP, Default Gateway, DNS (according to the specs that I found by using ipconfig on my working Windows 7 laptop)
- Updating the Atheros driver to version 9.1

Somewhere along the way, I must've nipped something important somewhere, because now the Vista machine doesn't connect to the internet wirelessly NOR with the Ethernet cable attached! The icon in the lower right hand corner shows that the machine sees the router, but with Local Access only.

I've done an ipconfig /all with the machine and here are the results (this is with ethernet attached):

So I handle IT for a small business (20 employees) and have been gradually trying to transition our laptops from consumer grade to business level laptops with Windows Pro. This actually isn't my primary job but the company didn't have anybody handling it before I arrived so I've taken it on.

The last two laptops I've setup as using the users Azure/Office 365 logins and they default to pin for secure access. Note that as of now, only three computers out of ten are using this login method as the remaining ones using local accounts with Windows 10 Home. Also there is no Windows Server on our local network

The laptop I am currently trying to setup needs to access a database file on one of those other computers on the local network and I've been running some weird credentialing/access issues that a more experienced person would probably have anticipated.

So initially while using the pin for logging into Windows (which was the default for the Windows login), the new laptop wouldn't even see the computer with the database file despite being able to ping the IP Address. I then switched the logon to a password and then the computer showed up on the network discovery.

This time it's asking for network credentials to connect to Server (email and password) even though the server is local account. Another option was to use the security pin which again doesn't work.

Is there a way for me to access that computer?

i have been the internet (for a couple of months) with no problems, everything was working fine but a couple of weeks ago my 'access' started to change and say local only, stopping me from viewing certain websites, pictures would not load and would then take to to the 'cannot display webpage'. when i try to diagnose it, it either says that windows could not find a problem with the connection, 'the problem has been resolved' (though it doesn't say what the problem actually was, and it isn't resolved as a couple of minutes later it will do it again), or it gives me the option to reset the network adapter and then says it has been resolved again (it hasn't). im running windows vista. using wireless internet connection and it always says that my signal strength is excellent.

i have no idea what it could be as i had not been doing anything differently with it when the problem started, help please.

Answer:internet 'access' keeps changing from 'local and internet' to 'local only'

This happens when the router/dsl/cable modem loses its connection with the internet but your wireless connection between your computer and the wireless router stays up (local only).
The next time this happens run in and take a look at the WAN light on your dsl modem to verify that it is red or flashing orange (depending on your modem). Most likely the connection has dropped but the modem will restore the connection automatically when the line is good again. This is an ISP issue and you should call them when you are having trouble and ask them to diagnose the line. You will have to insist because it takes more than 2 microseconds of their time and you know how valuable they believe their time can be.

Question: Permission

I recently had to re-install Windows Vista, and I have a problem I didn't have before. I want to move a folder and files, from my c: drive to an external drive. I get the message that I don't have permission, and to try again. This doesn't do anything. I can't understand this, as I am the only user, so should have full permissions. One thing I did notice, is that the files are read only, but changing the attributes doesn't help.

I just got windows 7, and on a great many files and folders I try to access, move, or delete, it tells me that I don't have permission. Sometimes it tells me that I need to access the security tab for the particular file. Sometimes I have to try and change the permissions for the parent folder. Pretty much everything involves going into properties then two or 3 sub menus for each thing I want to access and delete. What total garbage! XP actually let me do what I want with my files. I am the owner and administrator, how do I get global 'permission' from whatever dictatorial entity is denying me access to my own computer? It's not practical to jump though tons of hoops for each file or folder I want to be allowed to modify. is there a way to turn off permission restrictions completely and finally for everything all at once? I have disabled UAC in control panel, that does not help.
 

Answer:I need %^&*@ permission??

Was this an Update install of Win/7 over a prior {XP,Vista}? Then we need to fix the ownership.

Before we jump into fixing, you should reserve day-to-day activities to a LIMITED account and reserve the ADMIN
account for performing maint/updates. With the Security setting enabled for UAC, attempts to install, modify or apply
updates will prompt you for permission - - I love it as I get to see who is changing what.

SO, using an ADMIN login, go to Control -> User Accounts and create a new login, set it as an ADMIN and give it the password you would like. Go to Services and set secondary logon as autostart.

You can now use Start -> Switch User and login to the new Admin and that will complete the creation of the profile of this ID.

Get to this point and I'll resume - -

I am running Windows XP (2005 I think) without any updates. I just restored and the computer crashes everytime I update. That's not why I am here though. Note: I have access to perform this on a Windows 7 Pro O.S.

Something happened to another computer I have with some valuable info. I know I should have had backup, but I didn't get to it in time. I have the hard drive in an enclosure. Because the drive was password protected I don't have permission to view certain files. I know how to gain permission in Windows 7, but I can't seem to open anything in it.

I want to use this drive an a back up, but I need to safely remove the files that are on it now. I want to still use the files once they are off. I want to gain full permission to use all files on any computer. Does this make any since? I would rather do it on the XP, but I can always use the Windows 7 O.S.

I created a new user profile in windows 10 with administrator permission. Now when I try to access a file on drive f, I am denied permission to even open the folder.

l hate windows permission, since I am the only one that has access to my computer, is there a way to permanently disable the permissions feature? Barring that, how can I get permission to access the folder?

Answer:I do not have permission????

Open an elevated command prompt (right click and run as administrator) and enter the following (assuming the directory you have a problem with is "F:\Problem Directory" - otherwise you'll want to change the bit in red...)

Code:
takeown /f "F:\Problem Directory" /r
icacls "F:\Problem Directory" /grant "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%":(F) /t

This will take ownership of the directory and then grant authority to the current user.

Note: no need to change "%USERDOMAIN%\%USERNAME%" with your user name - just enter it as it is above.

While you could give yourself authority to everything like this it would be a bad idea as any malware you got would also get full authority and also some programs might expect default permissions and act erratically. I'd not mess with permissions in directories other than those just containing your data (i.e. not "C:\Windows", "C:\Program Files" etc).

How do I give each pc permission to access files and what does the term no network path mean as both pc are connected to the internet??

Answer:Asking for permission

or a wired one?You'll need to run the networking wizard on both machines. Make sure you give each computer a unique name, but use the same work group name (MSHOME by default) on both.Then enable sharing on any files and/or folders which you want to share between computers. If you're sharing an Internet connection on these computers do NOT enable sharing on the root of a drive. i.e. don't share the whole of the C drive for instance. You enable sharing by right-clicking on the file or folder and selecting properties. Then select the sharing tab and choose the appropriate settings.

On any other drive/partition then C:\ go into the security tab of properties and add your logon name to the list of users. Assign it Full Control (You do that by clicking the Edit Button then the Add button on the window that comes up).
Once that is done you can click on the Advanced button then the Change Permissions button, highlight your user name and put a check mark in Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object. Then click OK. It will take a few second to a few minutes for all the permissions to be change over for you to have full control.

DO NOT DO THIS ON THE C:\ DRIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the C drive you will need to highlight each folder that is not s SYSTEM folder that you need access to and basically do the same as the first part above.
DO NOT DO THE SECOND PART OF ANY FOLDER ON THE C DRIVE it will screw up the install.

This happens when you reinstall and use a different user name and or a differ password then the previous install.

Unless you are an advanced techie, it is advisable you stay away from this tweaking. Or if you must, before you start, make note of where everything is before changing things...then when you get messed up, just put everything where it was.

By fill, you mean a guest user? If so, just create another account with administrator privileges. or if you desire, you can temporarily disable UAC.

BTW, only administrator account user can do what you intended to do...but as I said, if you are not an advanced user....leave it alone. Don't even go there.

I realize that this has been addressed many times in the past. My case seems peculiar. I formatted my main drive and did a fresh install of Win 7 Ultimate 64x. After doing so, some of my files on my secondary internal HD cannot be accessed. And what's interesting is that the lettering of the label are green, not black. I've tried changing the owner, I've tried setting up a new account and I cannot get access to these files. Some are vide, some are audio, and some are pictures. I've attached an image. You can see that 'Skull, Pump, and NT Cardio are a different color. Any thoughts?

Answer:Do not have permission

Hello sxdcfv, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The green text for the folder name indicates that the folder has been encrypted using the included Windows NTFS encrypted file system (EFS).

If you did not backup your EFS cetificate from your previous installation that you encrypted them in, then you will not be able to import and restore this EFS certificate to your new installation to have full access to them again.

You could see if the 30 day free trial of the Advanced EFS Data Recoveryprogram may be able to decrypt the files. If not, I'm afraid that you permanently lost access to them.

Hope this helps,

Question: Getting permission

I have been working on blue screen crashes on my pc and I have been asked to post some mini dump files.When I tried to do this I did not have permission. I couldn't figure out how to do this. I read several online tutorials and none helped. I finally got some help and was told to run as administrator, which then let me zip the files, but when I tried to open them on my pc they were not recognize, nor was the zip file I posted. Now the folder mini dump has a lock on it. I tried downloading a reg editor that was suppose to give me permission but it didn't work. I can't address my blue screen crashes without zipping these files . Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Answer:Getting permission

Drag the mini dump files onto your desktop and then zip them up.

I am trying to delete a folder from an external hard drive.
The folder is named as 19ed928996bd5770992a.
The folder was there for some time.
It is created from probably an incomplete operation, or similar thing.
When I try to delete it, I am getting an error:

You need to get permission from Machine/"The Only Admin and User"*

*Think of it as username.

As mentioned, I am the only user, I am the only admin.

How can I solve this?

Answer:I need permission from myself?

Take ownership of the folder first.

Hello, A week ago (or so) Vista started telling me I couldn't do anything, by this I mean the following:

Upon trying to delete something: You do not have permission to perform this action [try again] [cancel]

Trying to run an executable: Same thing

No matter what I do, it says I haven't got the permissions for it. I own the computer and I use the only account on the computer, the administrator account. I've tried all settings in control panel and whatnot. I desperately need help. Thank you.

Answer:Permission

Are you logged in as administrator? Other than that, I cannot think of why else you would be asked for permission.

Tonight i was looking at pictures of my 1 year old niece in my pictures when i accidently clicked on my network in the column on the left side of the window and i noticed a cell phone was connected to my network, it wasn't my phone because my phone was off at that time & all of the information listed under properties for the phone didn't match the information that i knew about my phone & i didn't have any visitors so i assumed somebody in my apartment building was stealing my wi-fi. I got the phones mac address from the properties screen for that phone & added it to the block list on my wi-fi routers mac address control screen. I also changed my wi-fi name & password. This is the second time i've had to change my wi-fi name & password because i saw a device that wasn't mines listed under my network. I'm assuming whoever is stealing my wi-fi lives in one of the 4 apartments in my building because my cell phone always looses my wi-fi signal when i walk outside so the wi-fi signal isn't going very far. Can somebody please tell me of a free program that can tell me when somebody connects to my wi-fi because my network doesn't show all devices like my ps3. Also if you have any advice for keeping wi-fi intruders off my network permanently i'd appreciate it.

Answer:Need Help. Somebody's using my Wi-fi without permission.

Update: Right after posting this thread i found a second computer on my network & i only have one computer so the second pc has to be the wi-fi hacker. How did he figure out my new wi-fi name & password already. I took the mac address for his computer & blocked it on my wi-fi router the same way i blocked his cell phone.

If this has been asked before, my apologies.

Somewhere I had a tweak that would give a user of Vista privileges beyond the normal Admin privileges. I seem to have lost track of that tweak.

I'm currently not able to delete things I want to delete on my new install of Vista Ult. I'm the creator of this system and the ONLY user, so I want to have permission to do what I want and need to do.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
And where I can find the procedure?

Thanks in advance,

The Shadow

Answer:I need more permission!

Hello all:
I'm having trouble with some files that aren't allowing me access. My particular example situation is that I'm trying to add some fonts into Suitecase Fusion, a simple operation, but no. It's saying "You don't have permission to open this file. Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission".

Now I am able to access the files through my file manager, but it's not just this particular program. I'm running into file permissions all over the place, but I am logged in as an administrator.

How can I make it so that I have omnipotent access to all of my files, across the board? I've searched online, and on here of course, to find a solution. I've made sure the files are not protected, have "taken ownership" of files, etc. I don't know what more to do.

So, to simply and clarify: what steps can I take to avoid denial of access to files?

Any help is very much appreciated!

Answer:Don't have permission...

You have to take ownership to the folder at properties>security>advanced>owner>edit> (choose your username) > ok. You wont see any change immediately.

Question: Permission

All I want to do is to delete some images from a folder where they were accidently deposited. Rather a simple process I would have thought, but then I am new to Vista. The response that I get is to be informed that my "Destination Folder Access is Denied."and that I "Need permission to perform this action". From whom do I obtain permission? As I said I am a newbie to this system so any help I can get would be much appreciated. Cheers

Question: Permission Changes

]Hello everyone,

I've always loved the older version of Microsoft Windows Paint for Windows XP edition.

After some research, I learned that I could download that older version and replace it with the one I had on Windows 8.1

At first, I tried to replace it in the system32 folder, but it said,

"You do not have permission to perform this action. You require permission from TrustedInstaller."

After researching the internet, I learned step by step tutorial on how to change the owner which was TrustedInstaller;

learned how to grant permission to me; the administrator over the system files.

It has been said, "You should be able to access that particular file or folder. Be careful when you alter the permission for System file or folder it may cause serious damage to your system and compromise security. So please create a system restore point[/URL] first and then proceed with caution."

My question is.....

can granting full control to the administrator over system32 folder cause problems or issues?

Is this wise to do?

If not, please let me know so I can revert back to granting permission to TrustedInstaller over system32 folder.

All I wanted was to replace mspaint.exe with an older version from Windows XP edition.

So I did a backup using Alien Respawn, and then wiped my hard drive, and reinstalled everything.

In my old system I had some hidden files in a hidden folder. THe files did restore with the backup, and I checked the size, and there does seem to be data there. However, i cannot access or do anything with them, because "I do not have permission". I have taken ownership of all the files as well as all parent folders, as well as given myself full control permissions. But I still get the same error.

I really need these files, is there anything more I can do? I am even willing to try editing the hex, if i knew what to correct. (or if thats even a viable solution)

Please help.

I just got windows 7, and on a great many files and folders I try to access, move, or delete, it tells me that I don't have permission. Sometimes it tells me that I need to access the security tab for the particular file. Sometimes I have to try and change the permissions for the parent folder. Pretty much everything involves going into properties then two or 3 sub menus for each thing I want to access and delete. What total garbage! XP actually let me do what I want with my files. I am the owner and administrator, how do I get global 'permission' from whatever dictatorial entity is denying me access to my own computer? It's not practical to jump though tons of hoops for each file or folder I want to be allowed to modify. is there a way to turn off permission restrictions completely and finally for everything all at once? I have disabled UAC in control panel, that does not help.

Lately, everything I download is being really stubborn. I can't move, rename, or in any way modify any new files without having to unlock it with Unlocker. Even then, Unlocker doesnt detect any process using the file, but it lets me rename, move or delete the file anyway. I attached a screen of a rename attempt.

Hi All, I un-installed Adobe Reader 8.0 from my programs and features. I then downloaded Adobe Reader 9. I went into my programs files and the whole folder for Adobe reader 8.0 is still there. I right clicked to delete it and recieved a message that I don't have permission to delete this folder. I am on my own standalone computer with Administrator rights but I guess it is just not enough. Can anyone tell me how I can delete this folder as it is a security risk. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I had a laptop that I had to log on with a password
I didnt take off this feature when I went to best buy and took out the HD and put it into a "rocketfish" HD case to use as an external drive
so now when I go to open my files, doc or videos, I get told I cant open it without permission and I dont get a screen to give me permission?
so how do I access these files?
 

Answer:Permission

I get told this


Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.

I few days ago my computer started restricting my access to programs and other various things on my computer. I could run some things if I ran them as admin. I ran my free version of AVG and it didn't pick up anything. I went to shutdown my computer and and told me I didn't even have permission to do that, I had to logoff and then restart. After restarting it got worse, the programs I could run as admin were resulting in the same problem. My next step was to reboot in safe mode and run avg there, it still didn't find anything. I did however notice that i could open programs like Google chrome and media monkey. My friend suggested that I download cccleaner because it could be a registry error or worm, but I did that in safe mode and still nothing.I'm hoping to avoid a system restore and I'm sorry if I haven't fulfilled proper forum posting or anything, I'm new.

I am and always have been the sole user and administrator for my computer (Lenovo T60 laptop with Vista.)

Vista often says that I "need to give permission" for something to continue. I give it, and it continues.

Here's what happened today:

I decided to combine several folders that I created into one parent folder, that I created.

These folders have various content. For example, one has documents, one has .mp3 files, one has faxes (.tif) one has .xls, a few have photos, etc.

All files moved without a problem except for one very large folder filled with image files. Vista says that I need administrator permission to move the folder, and I do not have it.

This does not make sense on so many levels!

What is the difference between this folder and other folders that contain images, besides size?

Why would I need to be an administrator to move this folder?

And why AREN'T I considered an administrator in this one instance?

Answer:I don't have permission to do THIS?

Try disabling UAC and see if that helps

I HAVE done all the reading up on taking ownership/permission changing

My question is.. .is there anyway to "open" all the permission on my HDD so that I never have to deal with this bull$#!+ again??

I NEVER once asked windows to place this extra security, to me a password is good enough

My desktop is not the owner of my HDD
My laptop is not the owner of my HDD
The user account is not the owner of my HDD
