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.

Windows 8 - Need Admin Permission After Upgrade

Dec 15, 2012

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??

Updates :: Windows 8.1 Update Settings Changing Without Permission

Jun 21, 2014

I have my OS settings configured not to check for and install updates unless I prompt Windows to do so. I recently manually installed some updates. A few days later I noticed Windows was installing updates upon start up. I checked my update settings and sure enough they were set for everything to check and install updates automatically. What is going on here? I never noticed this kind of behavior with Vista or Windows 7. Any way to truly stop automatic updates?

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?

Network / Sharing :: Can Only Access Shared Items With Read Permission Each Time Start Windows?

Sep 8, 2013

I've set several folders and drives to be shared on the network with read/write permission. The problem is that each time I start Windows, I can only Access the shared items across the network with Read permission, instead of the read/write I originally set, so I have again to right-click > share with > read/write.

Accounts :: Windows 8 - Move User Profile To HDD

Jul 28, 2013

I built a new PC to be used primarily for gaming purposes, so I installed Windows 8 Pro onto 128GB SSD. I wanted to move my User profile to my HDD, and followed the directions posted here: User Profiles - Relocate to another Partition or Disk

After doing this and exiting Audit mode, Windows acted as if I had were installing the OS and wanted a product key. I skipped this step, went through the configuration, but when I used my email for my Windows account, it says that a user is already using that account on my PC. Obviously, because I had been using my computer earlier today. So since it knows there is a user with that account, why can't I access it when I start my computer? A friend of mine says I may have installed Windows twice on accident, but he isn't sure.

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?

Losing Permission To Registry Entries?

May 29, 2014

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.

Manually Modify Windows 8 Wireless Network Profile

Aug 20, 2012

I ran into a problem today where I entered in some details incorrectly to a hidden wireless network profile and then discovered that MS have removed the Wireless Network Manager so I couldn't delete or correctly configure that network as it would not get listed in the metro wireless interface.

After digging around on my machine I've discovered the wireless profiles are stored in

Where the first sub folders list guides for respective wireless devices on you machine which contains xml files pertaining to the wireless profiles for the respective wireless devices. it seems same to manually delete the files or edit.

Windows 8 - Signed In With Temp Profile / Cannot Access Files

Nov 25, 2013

I have a problem with Windows 8. This morning when I went to check my ASUS Zenbook laptop, the PC wouldn't access the network, even tho I could see our home network was working. I did a hard reboot and returned several minutes later to find I had been logged in under a temp password and all the desktop files I had were in the trashcan. Here's the error message that popped up in the lower right of the task bar:

"You've been signed in with a temp profile. You can't access your files, and files created in this profile will be deleted when you sign out. To fix this, sign out and try signing in later. Please see the event log for details or contact your system admin."

When I try logging out and then back in, I get the same problem. One other note: During the login procedure, this text appears in the bottom right of the screen:

"Windows Update. Your PC will restart in 2 days to finish installing important updates."

Hardware Drivers :: Windows Can't Load Scan Profile

Dec 8, 2013

I know that Windows Fax and Scan is not an ideal solution for scanning, but I'd like to avoid installing additional third party software, if possible.

WF&S works fine with my (Canon) scanner. It scans without a hitch. However, it is only able to use the default scan profile. If I try to create my own scan profile, I get this message:

"Windows can't load your scan profile. Your profile settings might not be compatible with this scanner."

I know that my intended profile settings (600 dpi, scan to PDF) are compatible with my scanner. How can I get WF&S to create a profile with my settings?

How To Give Permanent UACS Permission To Application

Oct 10, 2013

How can I give a specific program PERMANENT permission to run?

E.g. I still use a (very light and fast) desktop search utility called "Everything". It JUST searches filenames, and this is sometimes very useful.

I don't want to turn off my User Account Control Setting (UACS) completely because I want it to stop anything that I haven't given permission to from running. But it's incredibly irritating that every single time I open my "Everything" application that I am have to give it permission to run.

Where can I find (and stop) which application are being loaded at startup?

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.

Accounts :: Windows 8 Image - Copying / Modifying Default Profile

May 3, 2013

I'm trying to set up a Windows 8 image. I want to edit the default profile so that when a new user signs on, they have the settings that I choose. In Windows 7 Pro, we could log on with a dummy account, edit the profile how we wanted it, then just copy and paste the information into the Default User Profile. With 8, when we do this, it doesn't always work. Most of the time, once it's on the domain, domain users cannot sign in. Or when they do sign in, the Metro tiles don't work. Any good way to edit and set up the default profile?

Accounts :: Windows 8 PC - User Profile Service Failed Sign In

Apr 28, 2013

The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded. (Window 8)

Today when I tried to use my laptop, I got an error when attempting to log on with my profile. It states:

"The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in. User profile cannot be loaded."

I am using a different PC right now, of course. I had Googled the error, but none of the solutions (thus far) will work in my predicament. It is a Windows 8 PC, so I cannot access the system BIOS in order to perform a system restore, cause unfortunately, it goes straight to the log on screen(Which is become SOLID BLANK COLOR). I don't have a second profile on the system, either. I can't find any way to access the BIOS, Settings, Admin. Profile, or anything.

(SOLID BLANK COLOR) the back ground image for the log in screen is a solid color and not an actual image, anymore.

I can't access the start menu to open the CMD, because I cannot log into my profile and there is no other profile on the PC, besides Administrator ... Which is, unfortunately, hidden. I cannot make it visible, because I'd have to log in to accomplish such a task ...

The problem is not that I am incompetent and cannot conjure a new profile or complete simple tasks on a computer. My predicament seems to be that I cannot access anything. I need to log onto my profile in order to reach the CMD, or any other settings for that matter. Unless there's some, very well hidden, way to run CMD from the log in screen. I know that there is a minuscule detail that I am overlooking, but I cannot find it.

If there's any way to access CMD, BIOS, or anything at the log in screen.

When I opened mu laptop (I'm using ASUS) = Its going STRAIGHT to the BLANK SOLID Screen and There's that. Nothing.... I cannot find anyway how to log in using safe mode and try anyway boot using f1 or anything....

IMPORTANT Problem: didnt's have a cd Windows 8, just found out this problem, didnt even made another account... and other PC is using win7...
