File Access Problem


Didn't see this fix in the list, so- i just got a machine with windows 7. I wanted to arrange the 80 plus programs in my start menu into folders and to scrap the goofy folders some programs put on there, and i want to get into my cookies files to see who is hanging on, but this os denies access (fwiw, one user, i am administrator). I change the properties> security to allow access as win help says, and it still does not allow access. (I have enabled hidden files, just in case. ).

I've been programming and fixing software and hardware since hollerith cards, and i have had a couple pcs of one type or another since my 1983 ibm. So i don't live to work on them, i just want it to do what_i_ want it to do. >> How does one get to access windows 7 files when the security access "fix" does not work? No smoke now. Those cookies and links exist somewhere and someone looked at them during programming.

Access Denied - Cannot Access The Outlook.ost File

We have installed windows 7 on a new machine. The user is a domain administrator and has full rights. When we try to open outlook, it says that it cannot access the outlook. Ost file and then freezes. We have moved the uac slider all the way to don't notify, granted explicit ownership to the c: users folder, given machine specific administrator rights to the user and the problem still persists.

When we log in as the hidden administrator though, everything works just fine for the same users exchange login. The user cannot even delete files on the network that belong to the user! Everything works fine when he logs in from another machine running xp. What are we missing here?

File Access Permission

I am moving from an older laptop running xp to a new one which came pre-loaded with windows 7. I am unable to access a folder with all of my previous emails in various sub-folders entitled c:usercomputer administratorlocal settingsapplication datamicrosoftoutlookoutlook. Pst unless i log in as administrator. I went into security under properties in 7 and gave my non-administrator user account full access, yet when i try to open the above folder i am still denied access.

I suppose it has something to do with the "computer administrator" in the file name. How do i go about re-naming this file so it is accessible to the non-administrator user, or is there a better way to make it so that all of my previous email folders are available?

Can't Access My Money File

Money prompts for a password. After putting in the correct password, a box with a ? Comes up says, "money has detected that you did not close the file "my money xyz" before exiting.

Upon clicking yes, a working box appears and then goes away and is replaced with

Directory Paths And File Access In Xp Mode

Hi all, i recently became a windows 7 user when i bought a new laptop. For many years i've been using an old 16-bit program (foxpro for windows 2. 6) under various versions of windows, up through and including xp3. It didn't work under win 7, so i purchased the online upgrade from home premium to professional so that i could download windows xp mode. This all worked well, and i'm able to use the old foxpro when running a virtual session of xp in a window. The only issue i'm having now is that i'd like to create an icon for the program on my windows 7 desktop so that i can run the program without the intermediary step of starting an xp mode virtual session. It appears from the documentation that this should be possible. But i'm having trouble with the directory paths under xp vs. Win 7. In windows xp, i store foxpro's program files in c:program filesfpw26, and i store my scripts and data files in c:documents and applications[me]my documents xyz. In xp, i created a shortcut to the executable, and under properties created a "start in:" path with the path above to the script and data files. I copied the shortcut icon over to the windows 7 desktop, but the "start in:" reference did not make it across.

So i entered this pathname again in properties for the shortcut on the windows 7 desktop. Unfortunately it isn't recognizing this; i can start foxpro from the windows 7 desktop, but it acts as if it's in the directory of its executable files under c:program files. I wondered if there was a way to describe a windows 7 version of the pathname for the script/data file directory, but i couldn't figure out how to do this. So i have three questions:1) how can i pass a pathname in the "start in:" field under properties for the foxpro shortcut icon on the windows 7 desktop to make it recognize my directory of scripts/data files that exists under my documents in the virtual version of xp?2) if i can succeed with this, is there a way to access the directory of scripts/data files from windows 7 (for example, to edit them with a text editor) without needing to start an xp virtual session? In other words, are the xp directories visible from win 7?3) alternatively, would it be feasible for me to put my directory of scripts/data files under my documents in the windows 7 directory tree, and is it possible to pass foxpro a parameter to tell it to "start in" (and act on) that directory?

Error - Access Is Denied When Trying To Access A Shared Drive

I am getting an error "access is denied" when trying to access a shared drive on windows 7 machine that is not the specified "public" folder. How do i fix this?. I have done a fair bit of googling to no avail!

I have also made all he necessary network and sharing settings to allow connections. Other computers can access the "public" folder. But not the other shares that i set up. Although the other computer/s can 'see' them when viewing workgroup computers. Nb. All machines are on the same workgroup name.

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

How Do I Open A File As A Zip File?

I work with an application that packages files into "zipped folders" (yeah, just zip files), but uses a different file extension. It works exactly like . Gadget (windows gadgets) and . Themepack (windows themes) files work: you can rename them to .zip and open them with the zip viewer.

I want to skip the step of renaming it each time. I want to just associate the files with the zip viewer. In fact i don't need to associate it, just open-with a single time: i know if i can do it once, it will always be an available option on the right-click context menu of the files.

But i can't find which program is associated with zip files. I tried searching the system-32 folder.

Game Access

I have been playing internet games since purchasing this computer in december 2008. Recently, when i try to play games, i receive an error message:

" Access to this game is blocked, possibly due to windows parental control settings, or to file security settings. If you need access to the game, check your file security settings, or ask permission from the person who set up the windows parental controls for this game. "

We have not changed any of the file security settings nor do we have any parental controls set up on the computer.

I am the administrator and do not know why this has suddenly stopped working. I also tried restoring the computer to a previous date in the event that something had changed, but that didn't help either.

Remote Access

Hi, my wife recently purchased a new dell computer with windows 7, we use it for personal and professional use. The problem we are having is. We remote access into our office using a global vpnclient with sonicwall. When her laptop computer is directly connected to the server at home via an ethernet cable she can connect to the office with no problem. However when attempting to connect with our wireless internet through the wireless router she is unable to make the connection to the office. She has full use of the internet and everything else while using the wireless connection just no ability to connect to the office.

The vpn client says she is connected to the office network but when connecting directly to one of the computers via the wireless route, it is unable to make the remote desktop connection, while the hard connection with the ethernet cable has no problem whatsoever. We have quest for our home internet, i misspoke when i said server at home it is directly connected to the modem. We are using a:cisco-linksys wrt54g2 wireless-g broadband router wireless router. To the best of my knowledge there is no difference in special ports that are open between wire and wireless. Where should i check for a difference?

No Internet Access

I am having problems connecting to the internet via wifi with windows 7. The connection works with my desktop and apple laptop, but my new windows 7 laptop cannot connect regularly. I can connect to the local network, but it cannot then connect to the internet. I have restarted my computer multiple time, restarted my modem multiple time, restarted my router multiple times, used windows problem solver to check for the issue and it hasn't come up with anything. What should i do.

This is really annoying, especially since windows has advertised how easy it is to connect to wifi, yet that is not the case.

Internet Access

I'm yet again having problems connecting to the clients internet at work on various sites i work on, i 've manually set up the connection and when i try connecting wirelessly it finds the router but it wont acquire the network address

I can connect by hardwiring but i cannot view web pages, i've been in contact with their it support who had me look at a few things and that the ip address was different to what it should be and that he couldn't do any more without taking the laptop to him

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what the problem could be, he seemed to lose interest with trying to fix it through constant emails

I have a windows 7 laptop which i can;t connect and a xp laptop that i used to be able to connect but i formatted it and now i'm having the same problem as the windows 7, i can connect both laptops to my home network without any problems whatsoever

Getting Access To Folders

I recently upgraded to windows 7 ultimate and i am running into problems. I had to remove my blackberry desktop program and reinstall it. Upon reinstall i get an error 1303 that i need administrator right to the file folder that i am extracting files to.

I not sure why, as the administrator on my laptop, i have to give myself admin right again but i did. I still cannot download the files. I logged into the administrator profile and i am still having the same issue. I cannot get full access of certain folders that i had access to in vista and i need to understand how to fix.

Cannot Access Certain Websites

Recently i haven't been able to access one website/forum (hobbykings.com). Everytime i try to access it, it just gives me the 'server not found' message, the one that you get when trying to access a browser without an internet connection.

I know for a fact that the website is working fine, as 3 other people have told me they had no problems getting onto the site. I also know there isn't anything wrong with my account as i emailed an admin. The last time i was able to access the site was wednesday morning, using a laptop with windows xp. Later that day, i bought a new laptop with windows 7, and haven't been able to go on the site ever since.

The funny thing is, i thought perhaps it was the firewall settings on my new windows 7. So i decided to try my old xp laptop, and i couldn't get on from the xp anymore either. So i highly doubt it has anything to do with my firewall as i didn't change the firewall settings on my xp. I tried using different browsers (ie and firefox), and neither is working. I've never had or seen this problem before so i'm really stumped.

Access Winmail

I have just purchased a new laptop with windows 7. I run outlook express on my old lap top (xp) and now want to use outlook 2007 on my new one. I managed to copy the contacts with no problem but am having difficulty transferring the messages. I see on another help forum that the best way to copy my messages is to put them into winmail just by transferring using a thumb drive and then use outlook to import them from winmail. I have tried importing them both across the network to my old computer and from the thumb drive and neither works.

I have the folders on my thumb drive now and have found winmail on the new computer however i can't get it to run. Another forum suggests that i take full control of the permissions but it doesn't seem to want to let me do that. Surely there must be a simpler way of running winmail.
