Administrator Permission To Delete Folder

Sep 17, 2013

I have a game file that I have deleted/modified many, many times with no problem and now it seems I don't have permission to do so.

I used information from Take Ownership of a File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 8 to add the convenient "Take Ownership" option for files and I have ownership of the file in question.

It shows that I have "Full Control" over the file.

But when I try to delete the file I get:

When I click "Try Again" I get:

why I lost permission to do this all of the sudden and how do I make sure it doesn't happen again?

Can't Download EXE File - Provide Administrator Permission To Copy To This Folder

Jun 10, 2014

I'm running Windows 8.1 (standard/ home edition) and can't download a couple .exe files. I get "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this folder". errors. I'm the only user on this computer and have administrator access.

The file resides on mediafire and via my ipad I was able to manage to transfer it to dropbox, but I still get the same error. The filename (partial) is created but no further downloading is done.

I can't take ownership of the file-- it doesn't exist on my computer yet.
I can't change the local security policy (I understand this is only available in Win 8 Pro version).
UAC is already disabled as much as I can figure (via the slider set to never notify).

Short of setting up a super admin account (would this even work?)

Administrator Doesn't Have Permission To Save Files

Sep 15, 2014

i have just started using windows 8.1 on a new laptop and i am logged in as an administrator. i am trying to edit the hosts. txt file in

however i keep getting this message:

You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.
Would you like to save in the My Documents folder instead?

how can i alter the permissions level. i mean, i should be logged in as an administrator so why does the system think that i am not the administrtor and where can i go to alter it.

Grant Permission To Administrator Over System Files?

Aug 2, 2014

I've always loved the older version of Microsoft Windows Paint for Windows XP edition.

After some research, I learned that I could download that older version and replace it with the one I had on Windows 8.1 At first, I tried to replace it in the system32 folder, but it said,

"You do not have permission to perform this action. You require permission from TrustedInstaller." After researching the internet, I learned step by step tutorial on how to change the owner which was TrustedInstaller; learned how to grant permission to me; the administrator over the system files. It has been said, "You should be able to access that particular file or folder. Be careful when you alter the permission for System file or folder it may cause serious damage to your system and compromise security. So please create a system restore point[/URL] first and then proceed with caution."

My question is.....can granting full control to the administrator over system32 folder cause problems or issues? Is this wise to do?

If not, I revert back to granting permission to TrustedInstaller over system32 folder.

All I wanted was to replace mspaint.exe with an older version from Windows XP edition.

Feb 2, 2014

Windows 8.1 ... My anti-virus program is Bitdefender Total Security 2013. It has detected a virus called "Adware.DomaIQ.I". It has infected a file named "7-zip.exe".

Moving Administrator Documents And Setting Folder From C Drive

Feb 5, 2013

After installing Windows 8 I moved "libraries/My documents" folder to another drive (I have SSD OS drive) but still c: space keeps going low.

I found a folder on my c: drive named by my PC name on the network, e.g. "MyPC" that has 10 GB size and includes the following file tree: MyPC/Documents and settings/Administrator/desktop,Favorites,My documents.

"My documents" seems identical to the Users/Myname/My documents that has been moved to a different drive.

I am the only user and have administrators permissions. It seems this Administrator's folder duplicates my documents somehow. (it's desktop folder is different from MYname Desktop folder). What should I do to clean the space - try to login as administrator and do something about this huge duplicate folder?

Make Folder Difficult To Delete

Oct 12, 2012

I want to make a folder (and anything inside of it) difficult to delete. Can I create a new owner for it so that I would have to take the steps to change that in order to delete it ? I'm not looking for anything fool-proof, just something to make it not so easy to accidentally delete. I'm not too savvy with owners and permissions so I'm not really sure what to do or even if I'm on the right track.

How To Delete AVI File In Downloads Folder

Feb 4, 2014

So i'm trying to delete this file i have in my downloads folder, which is a normal .avi file. however, this file is really broken, it wont delete. I suspect this file makes my folder not showing thumbnails and acting slow and sometimes wont show anything at all, just a loading bar thing.

i tried deleting with cmd prompt, while explorer.exe is off, but command prompt stops responding.
i tried searching the folder for viruses, finds nothing.
i tried downloading Unlocker to delete it, but ends up with unlocker stops responding.
i tried quarantine the file, it gets into quarantine in NOD32 but the file is also still in my download folder, and NOD stops responding.

i get no message at all trying to delete it, it's just that nothing at all happens.

What is wrong with this file?! It plays fine though, just like a normal .avi file. Is there anything else i can try? cmd prompt and NOD32 don't get the windows "has stopped working" message, they just stop responding to me clicking any button in NOD32, or writing new text in cmd prompt. i can exit them as normal.

How To Delete Content In Unreachable Folder

Aug 19, 2014

I was trying to recover some lost files with recovery software, I came across something unpleasant - my partitions contain 'Found' folder that contains 'Found.NNNN' N for numbers, folders that contain files previously deleted with their filenames also remaining. I want these files cleared, the thing is, unlike $RECYCLE.BIN that can be accessed if you unhide system folders and such, these folders do not exist and yet recovery software finds them.

Can you tell me what application can erase these folders and files so that they do not appear under the recovery software? Eraser does not detect the folder as existent. It is something like ROOTFolder but I don't know which erasing program can find and delete the whole folder.

How To Clean Up 8.1 System And Folder That Not Allow To Delete Or Move

Apr 30, 2014

I was trying to clean up my 8.1 system and encountered a folder that it won't allow me to delete or move. It is in C:users[me]appdatalocal emp and is named rarsfx4. It appears to have been used by my AV pgm., Bitdefender, at install time. When I attempt to delete it, it asks me if I want to move it to the recycle bin. I click Yes. Then it says I need to provide administrator permission to delete it. I click Continue. Then a little window pops up and quickly disappears that says '234 items recycled.' Then another window appears that says 'You require permission from xxxme to make changes to this folder' and gives me only the option to try again, which just repeats this last process. xxx is my PC name, and xxxme is my user profile name, not any user account name that shows up in Control Panel, User Accounts. (I have only one user account, which is a network one, my gmail ID.) When I check Properties, Security, for the folder, I see that System, my network user account (which is an administrator), and Administrators (xxxAdministrators) all have full control. When I click on Advanced under Security above, the owner is displayed as Administrators (xxxAdministrators).

I also tried deleting the folder using Command Prompt, Run as administrator, but get 'access denied' for every file.

My questions are what is going on here, and what can I do to remedy it?

Unable To Unhide Or Delete A Folder Windows 8

Jul 10, 2013

I was moving my default user folder locations, where I have managed to move 'My Pictures' and 'My Documents' successfully. however when I was moving Documents folder I made a mistake of selecting the whole 'e:' drive as the target location instead of 'e:download'. As I don't want the E: to be the target location I have reverted it back.

Now for some reasons I am not able to delete Downloads folder that I created manually in E: drive. That folder is hidden, it doesn't show even when I select the option to show hidden files and folders. However the files in that Download folder are showing up when I search them.

To open the 'Documents' properties I selected one of the file from the search list, right clicked and selected open file location. so finally when I saw the properties of the folder it says hidden, and it is not allowing me to uncheck it. I tried changing permissions of the folder but still no luck. I even used command prompt to delete that folder, but it says access denied.

All I now need is I want to delete the folder 'Download' in my E: drive. I am the admin of my windows 8 pc.
