For some reason some files won't delete on my computer because it says I need to have permission from the administrator.
I only have one user on this computer and it's me, and I checked in Control Panel and it does say that my user is the administrator.
Has anybody faced this problem before or know how it can be solved?
Google it, no guarntees, but it might work.
Those who do not learn from the mistakes of their past are doomed to repeat them.
Holy shit, I got this same problem like 4 hours ago for the first and only time ever! Do we have a virus?!
This post was valuable.
open the file with the thing u want to delete in it
go to tools>view>scroll down to the bottom and uncheck "use simple file sharing"
then right click the thing you want to delete and go properties>security then check click ur username and see if u have permission to access this file if not select yes.
or you can try downloading and using file assassin
tell me if it works
sorry for double posting but it also depends on the file u are trying to delete-it could be protected or a system file or something
and also go to start>run>type in regedit
if it doesn't let you access that then you have a virus
If you have Vista or Windows 7 then that would make sence they are really protective of them selves... they don't normaly stop you unless your deleteing windows files or program files, you should use the uninstall that came with the program if this is the case.
vista doesnt allow you to delete some things with UAC on (even my virus scanner, avast wasnt allowed to delete precious internet explorers cookies)
anyway, I recommend disabling it, if your trying to delete system files however theres one way, take ownership of it
It has happened to me a couple times for whatever reason, I just restarted my computer and it went back to normal; I scan for malware anyway though.
