Program Permissions


I have recently purchased a new mini pc, and i have windows 7. I plugged in my external hard drive but am not able to access anything on it because i don't have permission. I have gone in and changed the security and have given rights and permissions; still no luck. Everytime i try to open something it tells me that i do not have permission to view it and then gives me the link to be able to change that, and so i do, but it still wont let me access anything. It's all there, i can see the icons and such, but i cannot view it when i click to open it; no permission.

Error - Program Doesn't Have Permissions To Modify Destination Folder

I installed windows 7 32 bit (accidentally). I am now trying to install 64 bit (from download) and after unpacking i get the error that the program doesn't have permissions to modify the destination folder or something like that. Any ideas? I also tried to burrow down into the unpacked folder and run the 'setup' but it told me i was trying to install the 64-bit version over the 32 bit version, but i thought i was doing a 'clean install' and not an upgrade.

Security Permissions

I just upgraded from vista home premium 32 bit to windows 7 professional 64 bit. Before i did this i copied a massive number of files to a external usb drive. Once i got w7 64 bit installed and opened the external drive, where i put all the files, i can't see the files. The new w7 user is part of administrators. Administrators has all permissions set. When i tried to apply administrator permissions to the entire external drive i get nothing. How do i get my new w7 user to see all the files on the external drive? On all my external drives?

Permissions For Mapping C: Drive

Home network includes a vista machine and a 7 machine. I normally map the c drive of each machine to each other with a drive letter. I have mapped external drives on one machine to the other just fine. When i try to map the "c" drive i get a permission denied. Something happens if i try to map c:usersbruce. Bruce is my one and only user and is system administrator. I have gone to sharing and set everyones permission to full control with no luck. What do i have to do to see the c drive from one machine on the other.

Lost Administrator Permissions

As no one seems to have an answer to this problem or the many other similar ones posted. I guess i have no option but to re-format the hard disk and reload everything which will take at least three days. Seems like the days of early windows are back! Can anyone tell where to go to resolve this problem?

I seem to have lost quite a few administrator rights which is a real pain. How can i reset them as i am the only user on this computer and because i have lost them i can't update my web sites. Outlook will not let me import my old . Pst file.

Administrator Permissions / Privileges

Another new computer running windows 7. I'm pleased with windows 7 but have encountered the problem of being owner and administrator account but there are privileges not allowed. The error reads "cannot import c:usersdocumentsieopen. Reg: error accessing registry. " I have used this script before on a windows xp computer and had no trouble at all. I am asking someone to help me change the administrator privileges so i can add to the registry. Like the answers i read it is hard to believe a computer with me as administrator doesn't have these privileges.

How To Restore Default Security Permissions?

I had problems sharing files on my network and i went to different support forums here looking for answers. I changed user permissions on my (c:) drive and tried to add "everyone" following instructions from other forum, i did something wrong and i did not fix the problem and now i just create a new one because "system" and "authenticated users" do not exist anymore. I need help to see if someone can tell me how to restore settings to default.

Reset All User Permissions To Default

How to reset all user permissions to default? I accidentally stopped a user permission change task and now my system is all messed up, programs won't load correctly after reboot, etc. . I can't change the permissions back because it tells me that i do not have access to certain folders. When i try to find these folders to change them manually, for some reason they are not visible any more. (I have show hidden files to show them). I tried a system restore and the restore points are corrupt, so, i have been looking for a way to reset all permissions to default or factory setting if you will.

Is there any way to reset all permissions to default without going one by one?

Security - Total Loss Of Permissions And Access

I have been trying to work this one out on my own for over a week now. I have a pretty good idea that my computer is being used through remote desktop. My administrator rights have been trumped and i can't access important parts of my computer systems. I have tried a ton of the advanced prompts in attempts to regain rights over group policy. I didn't make the disks for a recovery, i know, what your thinking but i have only had this computer a couple of months.

Now after doing much reading about the mechanics of my computer i now realize my error. Bottom line is i need to know if there is anyway to get rid of the rif raf running my computer systems. I also have had a ton of stuff installed in my system that i don't recognize at all. (In the device manager) at times i have had my internet adapters disappear and after painstaking hours finally found a way to retrieve them. I am by no means an expert on computers but know enough to navigate it well, so if someone could help with instructions on how to clear all this out.

I know how they breached my system so once their out i know what i have to do to keep it that way but i just am struggling with getting this all fixed. I don't have a ton of money or a debit card to order the disks either. So any help or advice that i can get for free would be greatly.

I am at my wits end with this computer and am about to throw it out the window not really but, i can't take too much more, it took me all night to figure out why i couldn't get online just so i could come here and get this typed out. I look forward to any suggestions.

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

Reset Security Settings / User Permissions To Default

I replaced my winxp computer with a new windows 7 machine this weekend and i'm still getting my feet wet with the new os. I tried to download and install a game, but i kept getting error messages indicating that i didn't have the proper rights. The solution ended up being to set the uac settings to zero. Before i got there, i made some unfortunate attempts to change permissions on the c: drive that got stopped part way through due to errors popping up.

Is there a way to set my permissions all back to default without recovering back to before the changes were made? There would be quite a bit of work (downloaded programs, rearranging files after the transfer from my old machine, etc) lost if i just use the recovery tool.

Access Denied On Usb Drive After Removing Permissions

I accidentally removed all the access permissions from my external usb drive, after i had already taken full ownership of the drive, and now it shows me the drive icon and letter "e:", but states that access is denied when opening. Even the "security tab" is gone from the drives properties.

I was trying to change permissions to include inheritable ones, and i hit the wrong button to remove i think(i was stupidly moving too quickly through all the options, my fault), and after that i was no longer able to access the drive. I have thousands of files on this drive!Please help, anyone? The drive still shows up within windows explorer as e:, and disk management shows it as a healthy (primary partition).
 
Update: found the fix, thank you lord! I tried going into safe mode just in case, and it worked! Go into safe mode, and login with an administrator account. From there you will be able to right click on the drive and have the "security tab" working again, where you can take ownership and add permissions back!

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " Error when double clicking folder or c drive. Can open c drive or folder by double clicking. I have had an issue for quite some time with open my c drive or any folders. Every time i click to open either one, i get: "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default program control panel"

However, if i right click on the mouse and choose open, i can access the drive/folder with no problem. How do i correct this back to ordinary clicking on the drive/folder?

All Program Settings

I have a question about how to organize my "all programs" settings. When i click start then all programs, all my folders are at the bottom and misc. Files are on the top. I would like to put the folders in alphabetical order and have the misc. Files last. It was easy to do on all the other window's programs but i can't seem to find a way with windows 7.

Program Fonts

I am having problems with my installed program fonts. They all come across very very tiny to read. What is strange is when i use my e-mail program and type a letter fonts are the perfect size. But not the program settings. On internet fonts are perfect. Its just the programs them selves are so tiny to read. I really hope this is just a simple adjustment i can understand.
 
This is a brand new acer computer with windows 7 premium and the latest microsoft browser. I also like to thank everyone who volunteers their time and expert advice for people like me.

Program Crash

I have recently purchased a new dell vostro 1220 laptop with windows 7 home prem installed. I also have a web design package known as incomedia website x5 evolution installed, the problem is it doesn't seem to want to operate under windows 7. The program crashes frequently and the only information i have as to why is listed below. I have tried the following:

-Uninstalling and re-installing (as administrator)
-Setting compatibility mode as windows vista
-Uninstalling again (and deleting the actual program directory from the programs folder)
-Re-installing the software again and installing the latest update for it

It still will not work, i have also submitted this question to the manufacturers of the software, incomedia, but thought i would also ask here too just in case someone has a quick and easy answer to sort this out.
