Q: Win 10 Downloaded w/o Permission

I know you are saying he made an error ..... I've seen that dialogue box 1000 times the last 3 months and I know what I clicked on. I don't like Win 8.5 and I'll never trust those people again. I became so angry trying to stop that I damaged the computer (the plastic crap they refer to as a case has no decent access .... it's your computer and access should be easy).
The display is fine but is now upside down ..... does anyone have a fix for this ? 2) How do I get this unwanted crap off my computer (it took me over 4 months to get my event record even close to not looking like a Christmas tree with no help from MS or HP .... I don't want to go thru that BS again ) and restore it back to Win 8.5 ??
Thanks ....

Hello,

It sounds like you didn't uncheck the optional "Upgrade to Windows 10" update before manually selecting to install available updates.

You can use the method in the tutorial below to go back to the previous Windows.

Windows 10 - Go Back to Previous Windows - Windows 10 Forums

Once you are back to Windows 8.1, you can use the tutorials below to disable the "Upgrade to Windows 10" update and GWX icon.

This morning when I shut down my comp I noticed the "downloading updates, do not turn off comp" message. Later when I restarted, the usual "configuring windows" appeared prior to windows starting. Logged in & checked to see if any updates had been installed and sure enough, KB3140410 & KB3135983 had been installed..... BUT, I have my updates set to 'check for but let me choose whether to download & install.' I've never encountered windows automatically downloading & installing updates like this before... Any ideas????

You are not alone, I too have my PCs set to check and let me decide to download and install updates and it they are doing the SAME EXACT THING!

It's no mistake and honestly seems to be borderline criminal if you ask me. The only consolation is that the notorious get windows 10 updates are still under OPTIONAL updates and they are NOT being auto downloaded and installed, make sure you have that UNchecked

"Give me recommended updates the same way I receive important updates" UNCHECK THAT BOX!!!!

This morning I looked up at my screen to find a message telling me that AVG 2015 has successfully installed with it's control panel showing, icons and their webpage displaying on my browser...

I immediately tried to run System Restore. The only restore date I have is yesterday... I restored it to yesterday but the AVG program files remain. I tried again in safe mode but no luck.

I am wondering if it is some sort of malware program posing as AVG. I did have a 2011 version but I stopped using it and I didn't ask it to install the 2015 version. (I have been using another program instead which I just deleted a few moments ago.)

How can I tell if this is genuine or malware?
Thankyou

A:AVG 2015 Downloaded without my permission - Could it be fake?

Having an older version installed can be a good source for the new installation, many programs love autoupdating themselves without user knowledge or consent (though often there is the option to disable this "feature"). That could count as a legit source for it. It doesn't matters if you actually use it or not, specially for antiviruses that inject themselves all around in the system, a small service left running is enough.

It's also a possibility of it being some sort of malware disguising itself as an antivirus. Often those come from false advertising in websites or come bundled in an otherwise legit software, as "optional offers" that are nothing but crapware. Inadvertently accepting one of those is a common way to get nasties in.

But now for the important thing, how to realize if it's legit or not. One way I know is to look at the digital signature of the executables. Open the program file's folder and look for it's .exe. Open its properties and go to its "digital signature" tab (lacking of one most likely means it's bad) and review the certificate details you see there, where it says who emitted the certs and to what company. Virus writers often don't sign their programs and those who do never sign them in the name of companies that write antiviruses.

I noticed yesterday that when I asked my Internet Explorer 9 (Windows 7) to display Digital Signature-related information during the process of installing an ActiveX file from a website, the I.E.9 window displays a file name which is different than the real file name. (Please note that I am not talking about the very first dialog box which appears during the installation permission process. On my computer (configured to the so-called Classic Windows display format) this first box is a yellow-bordered box at the bottom of the window, which has a gray "INSTALL" button in it. Only after clicking on this "install" button will I.E.9 allow me to see the Digital Signature and other related information. [This chronology is insane by the way !!!] ) The file name in the initial yellow-bordered box is correct. But the one that is stated in the Digital Signature-related window is different.

The reason that I am suspicious is that I have malware on my computer which secretly re-directs the updater requests of my anti-malware programs to malicious sites. It also interferes with my anti-malware programs in other ways, interferes with Microsoft Office, and may interfere with access to certain security-related websites. Various anti-malware programs have been unable to either completely eliminate the malware or to reverse the settings which seem to drive these malicious activites.

The specific changes that I noticed yesterday were:... Read more

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.

A: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 just does nothing and says nothing when I click on them. I went on 'Computer' and tried to access them from the 'Libraries' menu at the left side. 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.

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...

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?

A: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,
Shawn

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 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?

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

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.

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.

when trying to remove programs from my hard drive i am presented with a message telling me "i will need permission from ******** to make any changes to that folder.

A:need permission

Here is some info on taking ownership of files and folders.

Take Ownership of a File or Folder

This right-click menu application makes taking ownership very easy, though it also may make it too easy. Consider that if Windows is trying to prevent you access to a file there may be a good reason for it.

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.

Why are you trying to get a .dll in the first place? Anyways, usually this means the file is copyrighted or protected by some type of anti-piracy software.

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!

A: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.

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 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.

Hey Guys,

so I went Start > Run > user controlpasswords2 and I set the full name of my account from Mitchell ****** to Mitchell I went to the last tab and I guess I accidentally scrolled my mouse down and it took me from the Administrator group and put me in the HomeGroup User group.

Now, I don't have permission to do anything. I'm the only administrator account on the computer. The other administrator account I disabled and now I'm stuck.

I've tried booting into safe mode but I made it in Msconfig that you can't see other boot options. I have no way of getting into Msconfig or boot.ini for that matter.

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.
 

A: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 - -

Clean install is the typical answer I would give.
 
If you don't have permissions to do anything meaningful...changing the user name is just window dressing.  You need to be able to set up a user account in your name, then delete the other account, IMO.

]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.

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.

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.

Hello! Please excuse my english if any mistakes should appear, i`m foreign.
The reason I`m posting this thread is that something has denied my acces in system restore and other tools from msconfig, but some work if I enter in them from another place. I recently had some trojans and spyware and my Avira antivirus didn`t handle them to good so I did a system restore. I was hearing clicks almost constantly, and internet explorer windows would pop-up with adds (from my country, and in my language without being translated through some program).
After about 2 days, they were back. I found the source of the problem (a program kit) and removed it.
After the internet explorer pop-ups returned, I removed avira and installed the trial for nod32 (on recommended configuration), it seemed to have worked, removed the pop-ups. But then I couldn`t install Avira back (yes, I uninstalled Nod32 first), also yahoo messenger had many troubles so I tryed reinstalling. And now I downloaded the install kit and it just will not open (YM kit). The same goes for some other programs (small) just won`t open. My computer has: Pentium Dual-Core CPU E6500 @ 2.93 GHz, 3.25 GB of RAM , Gygabite motherboard...

My nephew was over and who know what he did but now when I go to download or run a program it gives me PERMISSION ERRORS. I can get a few things to run when I right click and run as admin or change the settings as I saw on other posts but I cant get important things to work like office or download anything. I made another user as admin and everything works fine but I lose all my documents and everything else that is set up on my account. here is the error boxes that shows up.

Easiest way to fix it would be to do a system restore to a date before your nephew got to your computer.

Start>Type System Restore>Enter

If it fails go to My Computer> C:\ Drive >Program files>Right click the name of the folder of program you want to use>Properties>Security>Edit
Then make sure you have the appropriate permissions.

But system restore should work as long as you have a good date to use.

Windows 8.1
In several of my programs, when I click on their shortcuts to start them, I get a popup asking if it is OK to let the program make changes to my system. I understand the reasons for this, but only the first time a program is started. Is there a way to tell Windows this is a trusted program and you don't need to warn me every time it starts?

A:Permission to run a program

I don't know how to reenable "first time" status to a UAC prompt for a particular program. One thing you may try is to reinstall a program that triggers this prompt to some location other than C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) such as C:\MyProgs, if you are the only user on the system. This can also get rid of the need to run programs as administrator that write .ini file settings in the same folder as the exe. Windows now protects the program files folders.

It's worth a try. Just try reinstalling one program to make sure it will work. I'm just guessing.

Right click folder/file -> security tab -> then look around there and give full permission on other accounts & adding to admin group if it isn't already.

I have Windows 7, and it tells me I don't have permission to save documents in the "My Documents" folder.

So I created a "new my docs" folder instead (in the Documents library on the hard drive), which worked fine for many months, but it now tells me I don't have permission to save in that either.

In addition, some of my files have somehow become "read only" and I can't add to them / edit them.

I frequently get "Word has encountered a problem" messages.

I can now only save Word docs onto a memory stick, not the hard drive.

Can anyone explain this, or help?

Thanks,

Try going into MS Office/word/ help/ fix and repair and see if that will work.

Whenever I start this computer everything will work normally until after I log in. Once I log in, all I get is this black screen and all I can see is the cursor. I get past this by opening up the task manager and ending the explorer.exe process, and running it again. That usually allows me to see the desktop, but now I have another problem I can't seem to fix. Every time I try to open a file that requires administrator permission to open, nothing happens. If I open from the desktop, the desktop freezes up and I have to restart. If I try to open from the start menu, the start menu will freeze up. Can anybody explain why I can't run anything that requires admin permission. Please tell me someone has a solution to this. I can't find anything anywhere.

When I try to organize the folders on my desktop I get the following pop up message: "You'll need to provide administrator permission to move to this folder" and when I press CONTINUE I get another pop up that says "Windows needs permission to continue" and then you press CONTINUE another pop up says "You need permission to perform this action" and then I press "TRY AGAIN" to no avail.

This is a common occurrence and I have to restart the computer to be able to move this folder and then it doesn't always work. This is extremely frustrating. I have NEVER had this issue with Windows XP.

I have tried the cmd.exe method without any success. Has anyone had success resolving this issue? Please help.

I was wanting to disable the hibernate feature on my vista machine. I was told I can do this by going to the command prompt and typing in powercfg.exe/hibernate off. When open the command prompt box, the line in front of the blinking prompt is C:\Users\Steve>. But after I type in the command and hit enter it says "You do not have permission to enable or disable the hibernate feature." Why would that be if my user account shows definitely shows me as an administrator? What's up with that? I thought when you were the administrator you had permission to do such things?

Hi all,

Recently I have been experiencing some problems with Vista in that I only have one account on my laptop which i mine and so I'm also obviously the computer administrator..but quite often I get messages saying that I can't do something like move a folder since I need administrator permission I don't know why it keeps on saying that, can somebody help me?

Thank You
 

A:Administrator Permission????

Your account is NOT "The Administrator" but a account with limited Admin permissions.

What are you trying to do, when you get this message?
Tell us, what files and folders that you are trying to move.

I've been trying to manually remove some virus infected files, but every time I try to delete the host files I get an error message stating "You do not have permission for this." I know that it's Vista's attempt to stop anyone from editing important OS files, but the files I'm trying to delete are sample video files that came pre-installed on the computer. I know I have administrative rights because I'm the only user on this computer and I'm on an admin user account. So any help on how to get around the permission bump would be nice. At the moment the virus is quarantined and won't spread any but I don't like the idea of infected files just sitting there.

Thanks very much in advance.

I have my network finally able to see one another and can access public files. Some files I need to access I get a permission error, telling me I need to get permission from the administrator. I am the administrator so how do I give myself permission to do this. I did some Googleing but the only thing I can find is to right click file that I want to have permission and select properties. When I do It say I don't have permission to do this. How can I have full access to networked computer?

Hi,
A friend was throwing their computer away because it didn't work, so I took it and got it to work. It wouldn't power on so I unplugged it and held the power button down to 'refresh' the motherboard and it worked. So I get on it and am able to change the volume, open mouse settings (although it didn't change the pointers to 3d like I commanded), and I didn't receive any permission errors. Now, said friend has a bunch of pictures on the hard drive so I took it out so it was ready to be given to her, but then decided to put it back in and just burn the pictures (~30gb) to cds. After booting the computer back up it started showing permission errors for just about any changes. The computer also somehow had 3 updates it decided to install, despite not being connected to the internet, and the system had been turned on and off several times without it doing any updates, but all of a sudden it had updates shortly after I put the hard drive back in (within a couple of boots). Another thing that has happened today is that I took the cmos battery out to try to get the MB to recognise my usb keyboard before booting so I could get into safe mode. That didn't work, but I found a usb to p/s adapter so I got into safe mode with command prompt. I added every possible user to the administrator list. When I boot up normally, I only have one option to log in and that's Desktop.I added this user to the administrator group in safe mode and it says I was successful, however i still get permissio...

Do I read correctly that you have sometimes your harddrive and your friend's harddrive together in the computer? Exactly what folders are giving permission problems?  Do you have restorable backups of your OS and data partitions just in case a rollback is needed?

Okay, this ones pissing me off. Usually I find a solution to my computer problems on my own or via google, but this one has got me.

I downloaded a MPEG from the interwebs with Firefox. As per usual I saved it ot my desktop, and it downloaded the .mpg and then the info for it, so it could merge them or whatever.

Only it didn't merge them.

Whatever, when it finished, I deleted them. It deleted the data fine, but it left me with a 0kb .mpg. I can not delete it.

When I attempt to, it says I need permission. I of course am the administrator.

I can not move it, rename it, do ANYTHING to it with the same error that I do not have permission.

So I read that you can go into the file and change ownership. This does not work for me either, as people tell me you go into the properties, click on your username, and hit edit. The entire area that shows the computers users is greyed out for me and I can not select my own.

So.. any help? :/ greatly appreciated

Hi everyone,

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on a home made PC I have 2 internal hard drives the C: drive is a small SSD and then I'm using a WD 500GB as the data drive, it's labeled as the D: drive. I tried to install Itunes on the D: in the Programs (x86) folder where all the other programs are located but I am getting permission denied for the drive. When I look up the properties the folder is listed as read-only when I attempt to change it is goes down a list of folders claims to have changed the permission but then reverts back.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Paul

Win 7 Home Premium X64

I am using a version of Quicken I have used for years, including on this machine.

Today it tells me :

"The item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed.
You may not have the appropriate permissions."

The icon picture is missing, on the desktop and the task bar, just a generic box showing,

This is in a window with "Explorer.exe" in the upper left corner.

This is while I am signed on as Administrator with no password.
I have used it like this for at least a month with no issue.

This machine has one other STANDARD user, with a password, and I can get in that way.

I tried to say Run as Administrator and got the same result.

How did I lose permission to use the same program I used yesterday?

Hello everybody, I'm new here.

I am having some problems when trying to delete permissions left after I removed a user. The problem here seems to be that I can't reach the original source of the permission. For example, if I go to the security tab of C:\Folder, one of the permission is for the ex-user. When I try to remove that permission, I get the error message that it can't be deleted as it was inherited from the primary object. So, logically I go to C:\, but in the security tab there is no permission related to that user! Where else could it have inherited permissions from if not from C:\ ?! This happens not only for subfolders of C:\ but for many others too.

The only way I can remove it is by first disabling the permission inheritance and then removing the permission. If I enable that setting again, the permission reappears. Is there any way to remove all permissions related to a user? Acording to AccessEnum (the Sysinternals utility) there are tons of files and folders (most of which I don't remember having set) with a specific permission for that user, and if I have to disable them all one by one I'll kill myself.

As a last resource, I guess I can reset all permissions by using the option to replace all the permissions in the subfolders for C:\, but that would mean setting aall again and overwriting the ones of the system.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Permission inheritance bug?

If you have deleted that account, then all permissions to related specifically to that account is useless and will not function again. That is because for every account there is an internal id, which is never reused, even if you create an account with the same username. The permission rules reference that internal id, and not the username.
