Cannot Access File Because I Dont Have Appropriate Permission(WoW.exe)
Jul 14, 2009
i installed World of Warcraft and it's expansions and started patching it. When patching from 3.1.0 to 3.1.1, the process kept stoping and 70% then just exit without returning any error in return. So i thought i should run the Repair tool and try again. Only now, when i tried to access WoW.exe i got this error: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
So i came upon this little reg file called Take Ownership, i ran it but nothing has changed. Also, if i: right click wow.exe->properties->compatibility i cannot tick the "Run this program as an administrator" box. My only options now, are a complete reinstall of the game and patches (but that's just wrong, because there has to be a more logical solution).
I have a XP home machine with a shared printer. I am trying to get Vista to see the xp machine. I have renamed both workgroups to match up but vista still does not see the machine. I have network discovery enabled. I can ping the xp machine and resolve the name with ping -a . The xp machine is plugged into the cable router/modem. And vista is on a wireless connection to the same router. But if I type \xp machine is does not find it. \ip address it does. I had an issue with "you dont have permission to access this server" so I made a registry change on the xp machine to allow anonymous connections.
I want to share folders between my Windows 7 desktop PC and my Windows Vista laptop. The files from my desktop can be accessed without any problems. But when I try to access the laptop's shared content from my desktop pc it says: "you do not have permission to access \LaptopMyFiles. Contact your network administrator to request access."
The settings on both computers for sharing are:........
I am having trouble with getting permission to a registry key/editing it. I am logged in as Admin and ran the registry editor as admin too. But still could not acces it. I am having problems with steam as it is not responding to protocols steam: I need help with accesing the key and getting permisions to it. Here is the video i have uploaded for you so you can understand what i mean:
My iTunes has suddenly stopped giving me access giving the message "The iTunes library .itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have write permission for this file." The iTunes forum says that I need I need to uncheck the "read-only" attributes by right-clicking on the iTunes folder, select properties, unselect Read-only. So I did and received the message, "You will need to provide administrator permission to change these attributes, click continue or cancel. I clicked continue. It ran "applying attributes" and then I clicked ok. But iTunes still gives me the same message that the file is locked. And then when I back into properties the read-only selected again.
I can't gain permission to access a hard drive that has back data on it. Tried to upgrade BIOS success! Killed my OS? Reinstalled my OS success! Now I can't access my 2nd HDD? I am willing to format and start with a clean HDD but I need to get some files off of it first. I have tried several things but none see to work.
I have Vista Home Premium, I am trying to add a Maxtor Shared Stroage II 320 GB Hard drive that is networked connected. I have installed the supplied software. The drive is up and running. I can access the drive but anytime I try to Move, Copy or send any file to the drive I get the following: "Destination Folder Access Denied, You need permission to perform this action." I have been on the phone with Seagate for hours, they have never seen this before. I have shut off my firewall, USC, Antivirus but no help.
Vista 64 ultimate updated or something and I lost quick launch, my back ground picture and most importantI go to open outlook 2007 and it says I don't have permission for my .pst file so I FINALLY rolled back to the 23 last night and it fixed it. Then when I got up this morning it auto updated and it went back to the way it was except I lost the 23rd as a rollback option to auto update so tryed next oldest the 25th but that did not work. ALSO MY FILES ARE LOCKED OUT i TRY AND GO TO PROPERTIES AND GIVE MYSELF, A ADMINISTRAOR, PERMISSION AND IT STILL WON'T LET ME ACCESS them. Oh I am running service pack 1 with a gig of ram a raptor for OS and a 320GB for Data Music Etc. on a new p35 giga-byte board I got 6 months ago. I was just going to reload but afraid I would do it for nothing.
I have my laptop connecting to a server under AD control. My laptop is not joined to AD by design. I set up some files using 'Sync' to have them available to me offline. My AD password has since changed and I cannot connect to the server to have access to other files set up for offline access. When I attempt to remap the drive, I get an error stating I am already connected using the credentials provided. This is not true, since I cannot access the server. What do I need to do to fix this problem?
I ran Spybot S&D, got rid of any viruses it got and Mallware Bytes, again, removed everything. Even ran McAfee and got rid of whatever. But each time i run the scan on Spybot S&D it finds site that redirect me. I press fix selected items but it responds by saying "cannot access hosts file. Access is denied" I tried to untick the "protect hosts file form hijackers" in IE tweaks but keeps getting checked. On top of that the Hosts file is missing.
My old Windows XP PC died months ago (motherboard problems) and so I took out the hard drive (which still functions fine) and put it in my new PC, but I can't seem to copy any of my files in the My Documents folder from the old drive to my newer larger drive. I've had this drive in here for the last several months and have had no problems writing other files to this 'older' drive (250 gig Maxtor 16mb cache, 7,200RPM drive (btw it's only a year old), but when I try to copy files to another drive I get the following error message: "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this file." This only happens with files that are in the My Documents folder. My current login has administrator rights, so I'm thinking some how this has something to do with this drive being from a different computer's installation of XP.
I must always allow program permission as a UAC advise comes up asking me for permission to open this program. how I can set permission to be a permanent permission. Am operating in a "user" (me being the owner) that has administrator permissions. How can I install this software as administrator to allow full operation by all users without requiring administrator permission?
I have a File Sharing Problem. Here is the situation. Both Computers DELL and HP Desktops Running Vista Home Premium. Connected to the Network. Wited Connected. Details on both computers... Work Group = OFFICE Network Discovery = ON File Sharing = ON Public Folder Sharing = ON Password Protected Sharing = OFF Media Sharing = ON
The HP Computer can see all Files and Folders on the DELL. Example Documents, Pictures, Music etc. I can open all these folders, add, delete etc. No Problems....
I have spent 2 weeks on this now. I recently installed Vista Ultimate on my main pc (PC1), and using the default sharing wizard, shared a series of folders to the 'Everyone' group, as I allow my private home network to access my shares anonymously. Everything was working fine for the first few days, PC2 and PC3 where able to successfully access the shares, until one day it just stopped working and when PC2/PC3 attempted to access the shared folders via ‘Start > Network’ or UNC Path \VISTA , it would say “Access is Denied”. Having said that, to make it more complex, the shares are accessible if you type the folder share name, ie \VISTAMovies.......
We have a access data program that we use for fiscal year like 07/01/07 - 06/30/08. I have copied the information into a new access file but the date is set for last year. Where do we go to change the date? We did not write this program. We are using windows 2000.
Vista has blocked access to all of my files, and it's not because I did anything from a non-administrator account. This happened to me several months ago, and could not be resolved no matter which account I tried to make changes from (Vista never has saved any changes to my permissions settings even in the original Administrator account). All posted comments presumed it was as basic as switching user accounts, but when none of that worked I ended up deleting the subordinate account.
I've been fine for almost a year, and now the same problem, but with a lot more to lose in files and programs! Currently, I have one account other than the original "Administrator", which is also of type "Administrator" (never understood why this is possible, but it is, and I just couldn't limit my own permissions). I have Vista Home Premium 6.
I am having an issue with accessing the host pc. I have shared a couple of folders on the host pc but when i try to access it from two other pc in our office i get an error of access denied. from the host pc i can access the files shared on the other two pc's. From pc 1 i can access the files on pc 2 and the same goes for pc 2 accessing pc 1 fils with no problem. ITs just when i try and access the host pc from pc 1 or pc 2 i can and i get the error saying access is denied. I have went onto the host pc and took off the firewall and also deleted the McAffee secuirty software and also when in and made sure the settings are on for file shairing but still nothing.
About a week ago my trial sub to Tend Micro expired. I uninstalled Trend (i have a full version Avast 4.8 home /license key) but immediately started getting this error msg --Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item -- when trying to open any applications, files/programs from desktop shortcuts. I also cannot open these programs from their file locations or as administrator.
just got a Acer Aspire 6935G, few months old, no previous problems. just ran sfc to check the system files and windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them. the trouble is i cant access the CBS.log file to see the violation/s. keeps saying access denied, i have tried changing the file permissions for my user account (ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT) to full control but still i get access denied. should i take ownership?
running Vista Ultimate 64bit. I created a junction point which mapped to my User folder on external hard drive. Then removed this junction point and pointed it back to the default C:Users... location but ever since the file system is terrible slow even on basic operations such as rename file. So it's NOT a slow copy/move file issue, just that all basic file functions are terrible slow. It doesn't matter if it's in my Users folder or elsewhere. As you can imagine this is making my Vista installation completely useless as software such as Visual Studio is hanging on basic operations. I've done everything I can think of - defragging, turning off Search/Indexing service... still the same
I'm running Vista 32 bit since about one year, I've updated it to SP1 a month ago and it is still very slow. My computer is a Lenovo X61 Tablet with Intel Core Duo and 4 GB RAM. Vista decreased my productivity since this time extremly. Since I am consultant I stick with software, but it really hinders me working. Is there any solution to improve Performance for File Operations, Remote Desktop Access, etc.?
This has happened before about a week and a half ago, but i have a dell studio 15 with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit, and this program message pops up with the title "A program can't display a message on your desktop"- The program may need information or permission to complete a task.-
Program details: Message title: Access to file was denied Program path: Program Files/Network Associates/VirusScan/Res09?VshWin32.dll
When i clicked "Show me the message" my computer went to a gray screen (with older-themed windows looking message) there were two windows this time, one giving me the option to return and the other box showing a hand holding a moving green bug type thing, from what i remember it said this file is infected and needs to be deleted then replaced... it gave me a long list of about 8 or so options and i clicked 'delete' and nothing significant seemed to happen, because the 'delete' option was still there, so i clicked return and nothing had changed, my windows were still up and everything.
I have three computers networked together via a Linksys Wireless Router. One Dell running XP Pro, and two HP laptops (wireless) one running Vista Ultimate x64 and the other running Vista Home Premium x32. I have all issues resolved (that I've discovered so far anyway) except one. There is a shared external hard drive conneced via USB to the XP, which I have mapped to both Vistas. I can see it when I open 'My Computer' but when I click on it I get an error that says "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have appropriate permissions to view the item." The odd thing about it is that I can access the contents of the drive by right-clicking on it and choosing either 'explore' or 'open.' I can access drives mapped from the Vista(s) to the XP on the XP just fine, just not the other way around.
I ran sfc/scannow in administrator mode and it said it had found some corrupt files that it was unable to fix. I opened the C:WindowsLogsCBS directory and it contained 5 files: CBS,CBS.persist,CheckSUR,CheckSUR.persist and Filterlist. I attempted to open CBS but a message says " Access is denied ". The same applied to CBS.persist. I am able to open CheckSUR, CheckSUR.persist and Filterlist. Upon opening properties on these three files the date created, modified and accessed is May-28-09. The dates for CBS are as follows: Created: November-27-08; Modified: June-15-09; Accessed: May-31-09. The dates for CBS.persist are: Created: November-27-08; Modified May-31-09; Accessed:November-27-08. The CBS file is apparently 15.7 MB and the CBS.persist file is 50.2 MB. access the relevant CBS file?
Using Vista Home Premium. Have a drive on the USB bus that came out of my old XP computer. Trying to access some text and Excell files on the drive. They come back with "Access Denied". I have read and tried all the suggestions I have found on the subject of changing file ownership. Nothing works. Still can not access these files.
Just recently bought a new HP PC which comes with XP, I then selected not to backup and proceeded to install vista which was successful. Unfortunately it asks for a username and a password which I do not have! Playing FarCry 2 will have to be put on hold for the time being, Oh well, c'est la vie
Yesterday I unpluged my headphones from the jack located in front of the computer because the wire became tangled, when I plugged them back in, I no longer got sound, so I restarted the computer thinking that was the problem and it still didn't work. I have checked the volume and sound card and they are fine. I can't even hear the test sound.
My dads comp is pretty slow so i ran a hijackthis scan - it came up with a few bad things that i deleted but there are lots unknown objects. I dont want to mess up the computer, anyone able to check through these?
