I have been having intermittent OS problems on my PC, so before they managed to get any worse, I ran the sfc/scannow check.It ran without a problem and when it was done it reported it had completed 100%, however "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them."So, I go into my windows (yes I am logged in as administrator) to read the log file and access is denied. I went into the security settings for the main Log file to change the security settings for myself to full control, however it didnt change anything. I am unable to get to any type of security measures for the file itself going the regular route via its properties.I am not all that knowledgeable with these types of things, (but know enough to get myself in trouble now and again! ) and would appreciate knowing if there is something else I need to do in order to gain access and read this file? I also tried to get to it going through my Administrator Command Prompt but I was denied access in this attempt also.
I'd like to put a .cmd file in my c:Documents and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuProgramsStartup directory, but Documents and Settings has a lock on it and tells me "Access denied" when I click on it. Is this a job for "Take Ownership" or is there another way? The instructions for "Take Ownership" say not to use it on the C drive, but it's not clear if that applies to the whole drive, or individual files/folders on it.
I have one PC running Vista (home basic), one running XP (professional) and one running Windows 7 (home basic). There is a printer connected to the Vista box, which is shared.
On the XP box I can both see and use the printer on the Vista box (i.e. a "net view \vistabox" shows the printer, and under "printers and faxes" I can install and use it).
On the Windows 7 box, however, I can see the Vista box (i.e. a "net view" shows it in the list of available PCs on the network) but a "net view \vistabox" gives me an "access denied" error.
The Windows 7 machine has a password on it, the Vista and XP machines don't. All machines are on the same workgroup name (which is "WORKGROUP"). On the XP box I don't need a password to access the shared printer on the Vista machine; it just works.
Extensive Googling has failed to render enlightenment, nor has browsing this forum. I'm sure it has something to do with security and passwords, somewhere, somehow, but I have no idea in which direction to look for it, let alone fix it. I have also read some things about workgroups and homegroups not being the same in Windows 7, but I'm not sure if this is correct (and if so, relevant).
I haven't really had any issues since I first installed Windows 7 and now I'm trying to access a shared drive over a network and I'm getting this annoying error message that I cannot access a shared drive over the network.
I decided to reinstall Windows 7 and before that I never had this issue.
I have not installed any third party software, I've enabled network discovery and right now I cannot access any shared folders or drives, at all, though it can see it.
I'm getting that stupid error message: "<Network drive> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of the server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied."

I have a problem that is far beyond me and Im scared of going too far into this and messing things up.I am trying to delete folders using Mutilate file wiper but I am getting the following message when I try to access documents and setting folder and many other folders are the same....the message reads : permission to use object denied. check the file or folders security settings to see if you have access I have tried google for answers and have tried setting the folder security settings to allow access but nothing changes. I have an administrator account and have tried various things with no results.I just want access to every folder like I have on my PC running XP.
After backing up my files to another drive, I couldn't access some of the files on my C: drive [the one I backed up files from to my D: drive]. I'm always on the administrator account, and there are no other users on this computer, and I've set the file so that the administrator has full control over it.Normally, I should be able to access the files [for example, my 'My Documents' and my 'My Videos' folders are unaccessible].
I had a go at installing Windows 7 yesterday and have run into a small hiccup.On my XP installation, my HD was partitioned into 2 drives, C: and D: (both the C and D drives are NTFS formatted).C: was used for windows and program files.D: was used for my documents eg. videos, photos etc.I installed Windows 7 as a fresh install to the C: partition and the installation went smoothly.However, My Computer, I can see the D: drive listed, but every time I click on the icon it says "Access Denied - Drive Not Accessible"All my stuff is backed up on an external drive so I'm not too worried about re-formatting HD etc, but wondered why it is doing it and if anyone knew a way to get my D: drive back without formatting?
My husband and I have been trying to get pictures from our camera (Fuji FinePix S3400) to the computer with the supplied USB lead. WE have been able to do so by taking the SD card and shoving it into the computer but we can't do so with the lead which we prefer to do. It seems wrong that we can't do that! With lots of going into all jigging around into files and setting we keep getting the message, "Access is Denied". We have even got into security of the folder and put in "Authenticated Users". We have an Acer that was bought with Vista and then converted to Win 7.
Recently got a new computer with Windows 7 and still learning the in and outs of the machine.I was trying to open some files and folders and I get a error message saying file is not accessible and access is denied . I am the adminstator of the computer with no one else having those rights so why would I have this problem . Can I change a setting where I never receive this message at all or do I have to change settings for every file that I come across that I get this message?
Several days ago I managed to synchronize my computer with my Xbox 360 using Windows Media Center. I don't know what happened between now and then, but my computer seems to have locked my administrative controls. Most of my files I had beforehand are denying me the ability to do anything, except open and view the contents.
I seem to be having a problems with my computer's Administrator perks. My account is an administrator, and recently, I have been unable to do anything that requires that I be an administrator. Whenever I run an application that is set to Run as Administrator, an error box opens that says "The specified module could not be found" I can not access User Account Controls, the window just does not open, no error message. I can use applications that would normally display the error message in Safe Mode, but I still can't access things like User Account Controls.
Ok, I have XP and Win 7 setup in dual boot mode, but I can't run XP because (I am pretty sure) the boot.ini file I have in Win 7 now is pointing to the wrong disk and partition for the location of XP. So I wanted to edit the boot.ini file and change the numbers so that it would point to the correct one. But when I go to save changes I keep getting "Access Denied" message. I have admin privileges, so I don't understand why it won't let me write to it. Is there a security setting I need to change so that I can edit this file?
I managed to remove all user access to the windows drive by mistake.
Now i cant access my main windows drive. Windows runs fine but i can't run some software, save any files to desktop and stuff. Please help as i don't want to reinstall ! i dont' see any security tab inside properties.

Bought a new Epson NX420 Printer a month ago and installed it and everything was working fine with Windows 7 HP Pavillion computer. Then a different user tried printing something and print job got stuck in queue and wouldn't print.So after trying many different options and nothing I tried uninstalling and re-installing printer. Now when I try to do the installation it lets me install everything till it gets to driver and I get error message saying Can't install printer access is denied. I am running it thru an administrator account so I don't know why I am getting this error.
spent an hour searching for a topic like this - and I know the answer is out there - but I cannot find it. Can anyone point me to the right answer?I have 2 Windows 7 PCs on a switch. I can see the "Users" folder on the other PC over the network from both sides. But trying to open the administrative share (SHCPCC$) Windows throws me "Access denied".From another computer I can get my hands on - no problem. I can access the admin share without hassle.Why is one computer allowed, another not? I cannot figure out a difference between the systems. Small maybe - the user names I'm trying from, is the same on both computers. But I even try using login account "SHCPCSirHC" from SH2PC, and vice versa, "SH2PCSirHC" from SHCPC, passwords are the same. Nothing, just "Access denied", as if the passwords were wrong.
Background: Last weekend we changed the domain name and migrated all accounts, users, computers, etc.
We have one Windows 7 workstation giving us trouble - the user no longer could connect to their personal folder share (mapped to the U: drive). In troubleshooting, we discovered that NO user, including the domain admin, has access to that share when logged into that box. All accounts have full access when logged into any other computer on the domain. All other shares on same server (Windows Server 2008) can be accessed.
We have renamed the host, re-assigned the IP, dropped the box out of the domain and back again, triple checked all permissions, but no one can access this share...from this box...including the domain admin.
I have a new windows 7 install on an old Acer Aspire SA-80
when I to run certain EXE's from my external desktop HDD i get "windows can not access the specifed device, path or file, you may not have the approriate permission to access the file" - when i check permisions for my user account they do not have full control, when i set full control it just resets back to read only
I am having an issue with a current update for Windows-7, my desktop became a default and i cannot load my old one. i found a solution that tells me i need to go to windowssystem32configsystemprofiledesktop and delete the default desktop and restart pc which should put everything back to normal.The problem is, is that my UAC administrator is shut down, i've tryed many ways to turn it off, but nothing allows me to, because anything that has anything to do with Administrator privilege it will only deny and block my actions, it is not a virus. on this website i found that solution, but how do i bypass Administrator privilege?Anything like a computer restore, anything that asks the administrator privilege Alot of things say : The Dependency Service or group failed to start when i click on System Restore.
