Why am I unable to change permissions for all new folders?

By Tharayman ·
When I received this Acer-computer it had Vista Home and I could not remove or add write-only and other permissions. I tried "everything" to get the power back, but not even awaking the hidden, inner administrator account could make my folders and files suitable for writing. I then formated the C: drive and innstalled Windows7 Ultimate. The scary thing is that the problems with me not being the total administrator followed from the old vista install! How and WHY?

how to change permission for all ne folder

by techno_mark In reply to Why am I unable to change ...

I would think running the executable as an admin would be all you have to do. On this Vista machine I do not run with Admin rights by default, but as a standard user.

I have gotten prompts similar to what you described a few times while working with the registry editor
. I normally override this by right-clicking on regedit.exe & selecting "Run as Administrator" to get things done. Just Click on the Start Orb in Vista & type regedit.exe in the "Start Search" field & go from there.
