Permission, Permission, Permission!!!

Posted: 08-14-2008, 07:37 AM
Help please.
I have two accounts on my HP Vista (Premium) system.

Mine, set to administrator, and Guest, which is turned off.
I am the only user.

What do I need to do to overcome the case where I'm constantly told by my
system that
I need permission to copy a file to a folder, or delete a file. These are
not system files or folders.

This doesn't happen every time I want to copy or delete, I just don't
understand why it
happens at all since I I'm the administrator.

I know it's a Vista safety feature, but should be my choice weather I want
it.

Mickey

Have you gone into computer management and manually activated the nativ
administrator account? Or are you using the default administrato
account that is set up during install? there is a difference in th
permissions given to these accounts. It is part of Vista's User Accoun
Control. You either live with it or turn it off, which leaves you les
secure and some native security dependent programs and services will no
operate correctly or at all

Thanks for the reply Kerry,
I don't recall any of the folder or file names. Suffice it to say that the
folder is one of my own
making and the file was not a system file.
To be more specific and if you don't mind, I'll 'Ping' you (Kerry Brown)
next time it happens with specific details.
To be sure it won't be long...lol

It would be best to reply to this thread. I'm more likely to see it that
way.
