No EDIT For Trusted Installer / Administrator Permission
Aug 26, 2013
I have followed the instructions from the Windows 7 forum on changing the owner/permissions for a file from Trusted Installer to Administrator but cannot see an EDIT button. I am trying to delete files associated with the Delta Search malware which was detected and deactivated by Malwarebytes.
What I am trying to do is sort my favorites for the IE10 app. So far there seems to be no way to manually arrange the favorites so what I tried to do was change the sort in the favorites folder under C/USERS/myname etc. I was going to add a 1 to the detail tab in the file properties but I get an error message reading "You need to provide administrator permission to apply properties to this file." If I select continue the message reads "You need permission to perform this action" "You require permission from MEMe to make changes to this file"
I am the only user and set up as the system administrator. I have tried completely disabling UAC and installed "Take Ownsership" Nothing has allowed me to do this. Now my problem is there is no reason why I can't add a 1 to the detail description to a file for sorting. What harm could possibly come from editing that field. Most importantly, if I am the system administrator why am I fighting for permission from myself?
Every time I move files on my portable hard drive, it says it needs administrator permission to continue. I click yes and it works, but it consumes a lot of extra time every time I move files from one folder to another. How can I stop this from asking every time?
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.
I am getting error "Save failed - Please check if this file is opened in another program" when trying to edit the hosts file in Notepad++. This has only started happening after a fresh installation of Windows 8 on a new computer. My previous computer with Windows 8.1 was able to do it correctly without any errors. I am using only one account on both computers, but for some reason on the new computer, the UAC keeps getting in the way. I have lowered the UAC warnings all the way down but that hasn't worked. Is there another setting I'm missing?
Note that I don't want to right-click Notepad++ and choose "Run as administrator" every time I want to edit a system file. I see that as a waste of time and an unnecessary step since I am already using an administrator account. I didn't have to do that on the old computer.
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?)
2nd post on this subject I want to remove two computers from my trusted-PC list.In security info the only option I get is to remove all trusted-PC.If I use this option will I have to do trusted-PC again for each Computer I want ?
When I download software onto my Windows 8, often there is an .msi file to install the application. When I double-click on the .msi file, I get an error "Error while Opening File". This occurs on various software packages, so is just not a bad download.
When I click "OK" to this error message, I get a big green button on the screen, with "Download" in big letters, and "ilivid" in smaller characters.
I did mistakingly download the ilivid app onto my PC (once again a big green button on a download site that I thought was the download link to the file I wanted, however I uninstalled it once I read some articles online about it, also ran Malwarebytes to check for malware.
Do I need to re-associate the .msi files with the Windows Installer?
i installed a game using iso file, it worked fine.after getting a setting problem in my game i did the recovery of 2 days before then obviously i'll have install that game again but when was trying to install the game installer was not not proceeding.
With Nero 2014 I was forced to install it in safe mode (I got strange error "1158" otherwise). However when the installation reached MSI files, it was unable to continue.
This REG file below enables MSI installer in Safe Mode and Safe Mode with Networking.
Reboot is required after REG is imported:
Code: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSafeBootMinimalmsiserver] @="Service" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlSafeBootNetworkmsiserver] @="Service"
After installing Windows 8 in most cases you have to install .Net Framework 3.5 to be able to install or run some 3rd party application. Recently while browsing the internet I came across an offline installer; one that worked perfectly and was very easy to use.
Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Windows 8 Or .NET Framework 3.5 Offline Installer for Win8
I recently purchased Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 (2 disk set). I have the first one installed but I get the error message- "Error decompressing data. Corrupted installer?" when I get to models.bif during the installation. I am currently using windows 8 (obviously) but the recommended specs for the games say windows 7. I do not know if this would effect the installation, if so is there a way for me to get windows 7?
Since a few weeks for some reason I cannot access some programs (like MS Word), it just says that "the operating system is not presently configured to run this application". It doesn't show up as a registry item either same as some other programs.
Now my problem is that I cannot install a new version, nor openoffice, or anything else for that matter that uses windows installer.
I've checked if the service and subservice was running and they were, I've tried SFC /scannow and Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth but they both didn't fix the problem ( did fix some corruptions though).
What happens with the installer is basically it doesn't do anything. It just sits at initializing forever and doesn't install anything at all. Currently cannot install any programs but don't want to reinstall windows since I have a lot of programs and settings I don't want to lose.
I have been happily using Windows 8, until today. Out of nowhere I cannot install/update anything (I always get "windows installer has stopped working error", I cannot run any metro apps (they simply crash), and windows itself seems unstable. Is there any other solution, other than formatting harddrive and re-installing everything?
My problem is since updating to 8.1, whenever I fire up IE11 on desktop mode a Windows Installer box shows in the middle of the screen saying "preparing to install" and the box continually flashes and the webpage will not load. Why this happens! IE works fine in metro mode and I cannot find any logs in Event Viewer with regards to this problem.
After entering a valid retail key into the installer located here I get the following error:
I have tried running the installer on another computer with the same results. I have also tried the netsh command and deleting the Panther folder. The problem arised after doing the trick to download 8.1 with a 8 product key and cancelling the 8.1 installer. It was working yesterday and this morning.
So recently had my old Windows 7 desktop crash on me. Got a new Windows 8 desktop and since then have gotten an external enclosure to try and scrap the files off of the old hard drive, but when trying to connect the Drive into the new computer I get this issue >>

I have had installer failure for Hp printer software and windows live mail even though signed in as administrator and running the programs as administrator; the failure is the same for both, that is " failure due to lack of privileges to write to C:program dataMicrosoft windowsstart menu".
I have gone to the files and changed permission from read only several times and had it change right back to read only as soon as I closed explorer.
I have gone into uac and disabled notification but it has no effects, and Windows 8 apps still seem to work anyway' so I reset uac to normal level again.
This all seemed to start after a win update, but doing a system restore has not worked either.
When I get to the part in the Windows 8 installer that it tells me what needs to come to my attention, instead of opening a little browser inside of the program as I guess it's trying to do, it opens up 2 tabs in whatever browser is my default. This would be fine if the buttons in the web pages still modified the actual installer, but they don't and therefore the installer is effectively stopped.
I'm trying to upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Key word: Upgrade. I would like to avoid re-installing the OS altogether, but I can do that by myself if it comes to that.
Here's what it looks like:
I read on another thread that making IE the default would fix it, but I tried that and it did not work.
I'm stuck. I ran Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant prior to installing Win 8. According to the report I needed to delete Intel(R) Pro Network Connection 12.1.12, which I did.
I upgraded to Win 8 but now I have no permissions. I'll looked at all the threads about opening a cmd windows, which I can, but since I logon to the O/S with just user level permissions I can't issue any admin level apps. I can't even navigate to my C: drive. I get 'Access is denied'.
I'm tried right-clicking on the Command Prompt and 'Run as Administrator', nothing. Which makes sense since I'm logon on with only User rights.
I need full admin rights. I can't update my HOSTS file which really screws up my FTP and Telnet sessions.
I cannot logon as administrator, so I can't change anything. Should I reinstall??
I was trying to change the permissions on theme1.theme and got the "Unable to save permission changes on theme1.theme" "Access is denied". I found that I could not take control as administrator but only as user????
I support an older piece of software(vb) and am running into a lot of issues on windows 8 not seen on windows 7.
Our software installs some setting etc hkeylocalmachine >software>wow3264>our program>folders etc>>>
One of the issues is some machines seem to randomly lose their data values or revert to an older value(for example a data folder will switch from the network to the default location. Another example is a license code being deemed expired. Often a perfectly valid license will no longer be valid. The user is prompted to enter a code. If I enter a new code it still says expired. The fix ive used which is annoying is running the program as admin and applying the license code- Normally if the user then opens the program as the user after this it will work but they will again lose the value.
Always running as admin is not really a fix because then user cant see their printers or mapped drives in windows 8. And that is something I am not really supposed to support too often. They don't want me to be their tech support.
how this is happening, is it UAC? My guess is when the user installs it asks for admin, the users clicks ok and it installs. But then I dont understand why it works for a while and then quits.
