Security :: Unable To Delete Folder - Permissions And Ownership

Apr 10, 2013

There is a folder left over from an uninstalled product called "Symantec". When I attempt to delete this, I get the message "You require permission from SYSTEM to make changes to this file". Clicking the "Try Again" button does nothing and the same message reappears.

I have tried to take ownership of the file through Properties > Security > Advanced, however, I get this error:

"An error occured while applying security information to (file path). Failed to enumerate objects in the contianer. Access is denied."

I have also tried to use an elevated command prompt to run the takeown command on this directory, however, get the "Access is denied." message for all files.

how to delete this file - unlocker does not work either!

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?

Security :: Windows 8.1 Unknown User Account Permission

Sep 15, 2014

I was transferring files from one external drive to another, I found a problem with a set of folders that I could not transfer with permission which should have been fine as I have administrator rights.

Looking at the folder permissions I found an unknown user account

Looking for solutions I tried to delete this account but was not allowed unless I turned off inherited permissions

I tried turning off the inheritance but this resulted in an error saying it failed to enumerate the number of objects in the container access denied.

Looking at some individual files (in one of the offending folders) properties showed 'Unable to display current owner' selecting the 'Change' option allowed me to change the file ownership to Everyone - Full Control and I could then move or delete the file.

There are quite a lot of files to do so is there a way to change all the affected folder & file permissions in one move?

Error - Need Permission From SYSTEM To Change This File

Apr 27, 2013

So My computer has been acting up. I downloaded a "free" antivirus that turned out to be a virus. It just slows my computer up and hasn't fried anything yet, However i was able to download AVG and stop any major issues from occurring. Now I am trying to delete said "free" antivirus, yet i keep getting this message. "Need permission from SYSTEM to make any changes to this file." I have no idea what that means especially considering I am the SYSTEM as far as I am concerned with this computer. Somehow my firewall and antivirus had been disabled months ago and I know I didn't do it. This was a couple of weeks ago. Since then, I have been fighting to keep my computer alive.

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?)

Maintenance :: Win 8 Keeps Deleting Thumbnail Cache (changed Folder Permission)

Oct 26, 2012

Normally in windows 7 I would change the folder persmission to deny "detele files and folders", but these options are greyed out on my windows 8. I'm the admin, and even if I log in as super administrator it's still greyed out.

How can I fix this problem and prevent Windows 8 from deleting thumbnail cache?

Security :: Can Change Local Security Policy Entries From RegEdit?

Mar 8, 2014

Which registry settings should I change to set the top two default Windows rules back to 'Unrestricted' ?

I set up some rules in the local security policy some time ago when there was fuss in the news about the cryptolocker virus. They looked a lot like the rules above (I found that screenshot online as I can't take one myself, read on..)

Today I was installing some software that wanted access to the areas I restricted. I temporarily disabled the rules, then re-enabled them. Being a dumbass I also set the top two rules (which are Windows default rules) to Disallowed!

Over the following 10 minutes various aspects of my PC stopped working, telling me that the local security policy prevented access. I couldn't even get into the Control Panel or the Local Security Policy screen to change it back, once I realised what I had done. I rebooted the machine - it won't come back up

I've tried a system restore by booting from the installer on USB (which did not work, it grumbled that it could not restore due a file locked by anti-virus) so I think I've got two options:

Refresh my system using the Windows 8 tools - but I suspect that might leave the LSP rules in place, as it retains my settings & preferences.Hand edit the registry to correct the settings.

Option 2 is looking best, I can get into RegEdit from the recovery console, but I'm not sure what to edit and what to set it to? This is on Windows 8.1 Pro...

Security Permissions On Network Folder?

Jan 20, 2014

I have a 1TB HDD connected via the network. 90% of the folders on this drive are fine, but a few were created by previous Windows installs.

I needed to delete the folder but it won't let me do so. I've tried fiddling with the security settings but they wont "stick". See the attached for what I mean.

I can't do anything with this folder. I can rename the folder, but everything inside the folder and the folder itself cannot be removed.

Security :: How To Encrypt A Folder Of Pictures

Mar 9, 2013

A few days ago I decided to encrypt a folder of pictures. I decided to do this so that the pictures would stop showing up in that pictures app window, so that only I could access said pictures, and because I wanted to know how encryption worked. So far, the pictures continue to show up in my pictures app and nobody can access the file, and I now want to just move the pictures to an external drive. However, I can't find the file (it disappeared upon encryption) and so I can't decrypt it in order to move it. How do I find the file for decryption? (I have the key, just can't find the door, so to speak)

Security :: Can't Change UAC Settings

Sep 21, 2013

I just did a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro 64bit on a new rig I just built. I am currently trying to change UAC, but if I click on Change User Account Control Settings, nothing happens. Same thing if I click any of the links with the admin shield next to it. My account says local account administrator and I have installed programs as administrator just fine. I have also tried the .reg files posted, but it didn't seem to do anything.

I'm using a third party tile creator (Oblytile) to make tiles for the Start screen. It works fine, but I still get a User Account Control notification when I'm trying to launch the apps even though the app it's technically asking about is Microsoft Windows Based Script Host!

Is there anyway I can stop the notification for this program without disabling the thing all together?

Security :: Set Task Scheduler In 8.1 - Win Defender Folder Missing

Mar 23, 2014

I am struggling to set the Task Scheduler in Win 8.1 to set a daily Restore Point and also to schedule Windows Defender to automatically update itself then run a full scan at a specified time daily. When I try to program the Win Defender function, I find that when I select the Win Defender folder from the left pane library, the resulting right pane contains no "Windows Defender Scheduled Scan" folder, so resulting settings seem to have no effect.

There are two other tasks listed in that right pane - one about cache maintenance and the other about verification (whatever that means), how to get Task Scheduler to work. I don't want to have to download another anti-virus program, but looks I'll have to if I can't get this thing to work. Of course, the inability to get a daily Restore Point may be an even bigger problem with this Task Scheduler, but I'm starting with Defender.

How To Change Username In Folder Display

Mar 15, 2013

(The following terms are translated from German, but perhaps not correctly)

At present I try to familiarize with Windows 8 with a new Toshiba Laptop.

There exists only one user with the name Helmut. I created a local account with the name "Helmut". But in the folder-display Computer --> xxx(C: ) --> users appear only the two folders "Public" and "TOSHIBA". I tried with execute --> control userpassword2 --> properties to change the name (from TOSHIBA to Helmut), but again in the folder-structure remains "TOSHIBA".

How can I change the display of this name to the name of the user (e.g. to "Helmut")? Perhaps in the registry? But where?

Change Folder And Search Options

Aug 23, 2012

So, now if I want to ensure that I am looking at hidden files, or have insight into protected OS files, I can no longer open explorer, click on Organize and click on Folder and Search Options.

I've found I have to open File Explorer, click on the View tab, find the Options button dropdown, and then choose "Change Folder and Search options".

This came up because I was trying to add a new taskbar. I right clicked on taskbar, select Toolbars, and choose New Toolbar From here, I get the "old school" explorer view (from Windows 7 without the ribbon), but the option under Organize for "Change Folder and search options" is grayed out. I thought it was just a dialog box limitation of the add toolbar wizard, so i went straight into File Explorer and failed to find the option. I actually had to Google it and figure out where they now moved the option to within the ribbon.

How To Change Duplicated Documents Folder To Pictures

Dec 4, 2013

In setting up a new Acer Aspire V I have managed to rename the default Pictures folder Documents and I now have two folders called Documents - see below:

I was trying to move the Documents and Pictures folders to DropBox (because DropBox is encrypted) in order to have all contents synced. I believe the problem may have arisen because Windows 8.1 (I upgraded from installed Windows 8 immediately after buying the PC and before the install of Office 365) may have put the Documents folder in Skydrive folder by default.

To complicate matters Acer also has some form of cloud storage that may be in the mix -the folder below? It is worth noting that the two folders below appear in both Documents folders (above) even although one still had the old Pictures icon - see above.

Here is a shot of the folders currently in the relevant user folder:

Is there any way to unscramble this mess and get the folders to DropBox?

Security :: Windows 8 Drive - Access Folder On Mounted Disk Image?

Aug 27, 2013

I use O&O Disk Image 7.2 to make images of my Windows 8 drive. Occasionally I need to mount an image to access folders and files. One folder I can't access is my user folder. I get the message 'You don't currently have permission to access this folder.' I took ownership of the folder but that didn't work. I get a similar result for the folder "C:WindowsCSC" if you want to see how my user folder behaves.

How can I access my user folder on my mounted image?

Unable To Move Folder (Containing Files)?

Dec 17, 2012

This has happened a few times to me. I work a lot with professional Audio Production and I just tried to move some files that were created last year on the same PC (using windows 7 64-bit at the time) from one folder to another on the same partition. I used the 'take ownership' context item and even added my user name (only user on my PC) with all permissions. But I still couldn't move them (not one application or folder open that was using the files inside).

In the end I had to copy/paste and delete the originals afterwards. They deleted fine, but wouldn't allow moving. How to avoid this in future, so that I can just move the files?

It's happened to a few (seemingly) random folders since I've started using windows 8 64-bit, amongst hundreds I have in the parent folder from the same dates +/-.

Security :: BitLocker - Password Is Known But Unable To Decrypt

Jul 7, 2014

I have BitLocker enabled on a laptop's boot/OS drive. It has worked well for almost a year but it hung when shutting down the other day and I had to press and hold the power button for 4 seconds to power it off. Now when I power it back on, it asks for the password as normal but then it starts in recovery mode and asks for the recovery key as well. Unfortunately I do not have the recovery key.

I know that the password I am entering is correct because it rejects any other password (as would be expected) and only prompts for the recovery key when I enter the correct password.

Am I going to be able to recover my data without this recovery key it is asking for?

Unable To Remove Folder From Windows Temp

Dec 22, 2013

I have HP pavilion G6 laptop running windows 8.1. Found under c:windows emp a folder with a very long alphanumeric "name". On opening this appears to be an OS installation i.e. it has the following files included:

Program Files
Program Files (x86)
Program data

Being in the temp folder I presume can be deleted. However I cannot delete this folder. I get the message that says I require permission from the trusted installer (??) to make changes to this folder.

How do I delete this folder ??
