By-pass Vista file restrictions.

Vista Business Professional

I want to by-pass all restrictions to file access. No more
"access denied" when looking at "documents and settings." No
denial of access to others in the workgroup. I want an open LAN.

I am quite frustrated going through 13 steps for security
permissions and ownership just for the principal user
(me)(administrative permission) to look at or modify a file
or sub-directory. I am fed up with the myopic paranoia. I
will take my chances with the malicious attackers, that's
why god invented the firewall and anti-virus programs. I
just want to know how to bypass the paranoia. I do not want
justifications for why MS did it this way, or what I throw
away by disabling something. Save it. Just the nitty-gritty
how to.

Thank you.

Enable the hidden (SUPER) administrator account.

Open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and
choosing "Run as administrator"

type (no quotes):

"net user administrator /active:yes"

Logout. You should see it.

You could also turn off User Account Control:

Control Panel (Classic mode) - User Accounts

You'll see it.

<sigh> WHY would you want to access "documents and settings"? THERE'S
NOTHING IN IT. There NEVER will be..........
Read up about Junction points. A Junction Point is a Symbolic Link - you
CAN'T access it AFAIK.

Just live with it. I don't know why you are so obsessed with trying to
access something that you can't...

Don't bother with this idiot - there's been a huge thread about this before.
He can't seem to get it into his head that Documents and Settings is a
symbolic link - not a folder. The man's totally obsessed....

OK.
Now I will not be even a symbolic SUPER. I am disappointed.

Strange. Documents and settings is directory in XP. I do not
understand why Documents and Settings is listed in the
directory tree structure in Vista if it not to be accessed.
I am lost about this. I am obsessed with the convoluted maze
created by Vista for file management, file access, the
install and starting of some programs (allow/deny) and so
forth. I want this out of my way. When I want to be
patronized and coddled, I'll purchase an operating system
that has training wheels and a roll-bar.

It's not complicated, it's just different....
In Vista, "Documents and Settings" is not a folder.
Vista uses a different file structure than XP does/did. Those familiar
folder names you may be used to, like "My Documents", "Documents &
Settings", etc.
are not folders in Vista. They are junction points, and are used for legacy
programs which were written to utilize the XP file structure. They will
redirect the programs to use the equivalent Vista folders.
If you keep the protected operating system files hidden, you won't see them.

In Vista......
Documents & Settings -> \Users
My Documents -> \Users\youraccount\Documents
My Music -> \Users\youraccount\Music
Application Data -> \Users\youraccount\AppData
etc.

It is there for OLDER software programs to help them find their way.

Use the super-admin account, turn off UAC, and stop whining.
