Cannot Access File Because I Dont Have Appropriate Permission(WoW.exe)

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).

XP Home Edition - Print Share, "you Dont Have Permission To Access This Server"
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.

Itunes Stopped Access Not Permission
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.

6801.bmp File Or Explorer.exe File
i'm trying to change the Start Menu icon on my Vista 32-bit. I have looked EVERYWHERE and the only way it appears to be possible is by downloading a program caled ResHack. I did, but all the tutorials are saying to open the explorer.exe file and either look for a 6801.bmp file, which I don't have (looks like it's only on Windows 7), or to look for a "String Table" folder which I don't have either.I added a screenshot of the folders I get when I open explorer.exe in ResHack. PLEASE tell me if I have some kind of fake Vista version (which is weird because it was already installed when I bought the computer from the store) or what is going on?

File Synchronization: Access To Other Files Set Up For Offline Access
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?

Deleting Jucheck.exe :Access Denied
I've got this old version of Java that I want to replace. The files are located at C:program filesjava. I managed to delete all the files, except these two. I renamed them to 1.exe and 2.exe so that it would be easier for me to atempt deleting them, but I know one of them is called jucheck.exe. Both are in the bin folder (c:program filesjavain). I am logged on to the administrator account of Vista (the actual admin, not an admin account). Whenever I try to delete them, I get an 'Access denied' error message. I've tried everything I can think of--I changed their WIC level to low, no program is using them, I tried forcibly deleting them in command prompt with the -f and /q atributes, changing their ownership, editing their sicurity settings, renaming them, deleting their file contents.

Access Denied To Conime.exe*32 Rename And Delete
Got major problem with system now - conime.exe*32 is in and slowing my PC down to a crawl. How do i get this out as i've tried to rename it, delete it and move it but get access denied. Checked permissions and it's running under Trusted Installer.
Have tried safe mode to no avail, have run defender, avast anti virus and now Ad-Aware but the first 2 don't pick anything up and Ad-Aware just stops at the beginning deep scanning registry. Is there a registry line i can delete in order to remove this c**p from my system?

File Not Compatible Autochk.exe
When I click on Start, enter autochk.exe, then hit Enter, a window pops up with the following message: C:Windowssystem32autochk.exe The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you???re running. Check your computer???s system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. This, in turn, prevents chkdsk.exe from running at startup.

Open .exe File IE Ittunes
So apparently I had a massive amount of viruses on my computer, of which I recently purchased Vista anti-virus to remove them all. This worked great for a bit but now whenever I try opening any program/file it asks me which program I want to use to open it. This includes .exe files, along with things like IE, iTunes. Windows Media Player, and many others. I have downloaded a patch that is supposed to fix this, but when I go to open the file (which is a .exe one) it once again asks me which program I want to open it with.

Games Missing .exe File
I recently purchased a laptop from Gateway, and although the Games folder is in the start menu...that folder has the icons for the games, but all the icons are the generic type, and if i click on ANY of them, i get an error message that says: "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." ok, BUT I have only the one account on this computer, and of course its an Admin account. Next, i went to Control Panel/Programs and Feature/Turn Windows features on or off...The box for GAMES is checked, and when i open up to see the subfeatures...ALL games are checked...

Next, i went to C:/program files/microsoft games lo and behold, the folders for all the games are there, and the .exe/.dll/ and subfolder with the .mui is ALL THERE...when i try to dubclick on the .exe directly, i get the same message that i did when clicking the shortcut in Startbar (see above) just what the heck can i do to restore those .exe files back into proper working order? I find it hard to believe that only the games files are corrupted...but is there some solution that you could provide me...i have exhausted my attempts to try and find them via the internet (for download)...but since the files ARE on my system..there "should" be a way to fix this weird problem...

When Ever I Execute An Exe File, I Can't Delete It Afterwards
I have a very unusual problem with my vista ultimate 64 bit, when ever I execute an exe file, I can't delete it afterwards. I can delete it after restart. There is no security problem, if I do not execute the file then I can delete, move and do what I want. The moment it is run, and certainly close it, I can't delete it any longer. I checked that the process is not running any more. I tried to see if something is locking the file, no handle was found on the file. It happens for different programs, no matter what as long as it is an .exe file. I tried unlocker program that said the file is not locked. It happens even on a usb key with FAT. The moment I run the exe from the key I can't delete it, and I can't remove the key the right way.

When I pull out the key, and return it, I can delete the file, it is free. But I can't do that to my hard drive. Tried scanning for virus, and malware - nothing was found. Tried security related, but since it happen on a usb FAT disk, and there is no security for that, I am starting to give up. At this time formatting the computer in not an option.

Downloaded File (exe) Has Link Extension
I just downloaded an .exe file fromt the internet and saved it to my harddrive. But I must've done something wrong in the process because when I check the location I saved it to, it shows a shortcut (.lnk) that won't do a thing if I double click on it. Is there a way to change the extension back to .exe so I can run it (it's an install program)? I've already scouted the forums and noticed you can do something with your regs, but I'm afraid that will affect other files on my computer and I'm only having problems with this particular file.

Lost File Association With Exe Files
The aftermath of a trojan attack (Vista Guardian) has resulted in the file association of exe files being lost and hence an inability to run exe files. I am quite convinced that the trojan is now dead, but I can't figure out how to fix the damage. If I could get into the registry I could fix it, but of course regedit is an exe file so I can't run it. I've tried tricks like running it from command line or from inside a batch file but with no joy. I have also made a copy and called it This looked romising as Vista asked for user permission to run the program, but then nothing. It gets killed off before it starts. I am not familiar with the particular machine, nor am I very familiar with Vista and I am now at a loss as to how to proceed.

Symantec Antivirus CD:Do Need Just The .EXE Installation File?
I have a Symantec Antivirus CD. However, the computer I want to install the antivirus on has a non-working disc drive, so the CD is useless for it, and I was going to put the disc in another computer disc drive, then transfer its contents to a USB flash drive, then use the USB on the computer I want to have the antivirus program. However, it's disc drive nor its USB ports work.

So what I thought was, using the disc on another computer, and attaching the disc contents in an email, or on megaupload. However, I can't attach folders. I have to attach files, not folders, like a .exe file for instance. So I was only able to send to myself, online, the .exe installation file of the Symantec Antivirus program I want to install on the computer. Is the .exe installation file all I need for the program?

Associating Files Browse Appropriate Exe File
I'm running Vista Home Premium. I have Sarmsoft Resume Builder installed. Until recently, my resume files, with an .rb4 extension, were associated with the program and displayed the program's icon in Explorer. They've somehow become associated with Adobe Acrobat, and Vista flat out refuses to allow me to correct this. The parent program doesn't appear as an option in Control Panel for associating files, and after I browse to the program location and select the appropriate EXE file, the association still stays Adobe Acrobat.
