Modifying Programs Files Doesn't Work.

Posted: 09-09-2008, 02:15 PM

I can't rename, modify, delete or doing whatever for files inside
program files.

Myself isn't a newbie in Windows Vista, here's a couple of methods I
tried to fix it but doesn't work.

1. Taking Full Control for C:/ (Having Access Denied)
2. Taking Any Full Control For Files In Program Files (Having Access
Denied)
3. Registry Tweaks (Nothing Special)


I haven't tried turning off UAC but I think that won't work.

Help us understand what it is that you need to do.

Are you allowed to read the security tab of the folders or files? If so, who
has ownership and permissions of the folders or files? Have you tried gaining
permissions or taking ownership at the parent or root level of the program
files? If you can be more specific of which files you are trying to modify
and from where the folders/files were originally created that would help us.

Check that in the security tab the Everyone group has no ticks in the Deny
column as that will overrides all the allows.

Apologies for repeating myself. Have you checked that there are no ticks in
the Deny column? (you may need to scroll down to see them)

I've ticked Full Control, 100% Confirmed.

I think the cause of the problem is VistaOSX's Uninstallation,

well, that guy's software released sucks.
