I need admin permission to delete/move file (but I'm both admin/owner)

Q: I need admin permission to delete/move file (but I'm both admin/owner)

Hi,
I'm new to Windows 7.

I'm still trying to master the file permissions.. I need some help and I'd appreciate it if someone could help me out.

I have a folder with mp3s (created with my old Windows XP system). I've included this mp3s folder in the "my music" library and then I inspected the folder and took ownership of it together with everything it contains (following instructions I found on the Net).

Nevertheless, when I'm trying to delete or move a file I get the message that I need to provide administrator permission! But I thought I am both administrator and owner...

Also, when listen to the songs with WinAmp, it seems I cannon save any song data. I get: Cannot save metadata: Error opening file.

I suppose, it's an aspect of the very same problem.

What am I missing?

thanx.

Preferred Solution: I need admin permission to delete/move file (but I'm both admin/owner)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Take a look on the properties of the folder see if you have an unblock button . If you do click on it .

Hello, I just purchased a new lenovo v570 laptop runing windows 7 home premium.

I scanned an image using my Epson NX 400 usb all-in-one printer. Then I tried to save it to my external USB enclosed sata drive. I haven't had any problem like this before. They said, I didn't have permission. I am running the laptop as an administrator. What other permission do I need? Antivirus and firewall software is all up and funny functional.

A:Can't delete desktop icons without admin permission

For anyone interested, it turns out that, in my case at least, the solution was "don't use Windows Easy Transfer". I had done a lot of customizing of my old platform, involving a lot of editing of permissions. WET doesn't transfer permissions and only part of those customizations, in such a way that I think I wound up with sort of a corrupted mess. Since it doesn't transfer permissions and you need to reinstall all your programs anyway, I don't think there's much point in using it. It's not difficult to re-establish accounts manually and desktop preferences by exporting theme packs. Once I started customizing my third attempt at a fresh install, this time without WET, I had no problem at all setting up the proper permissions. Folder editing now works as it should.

The title pretty much says it all, just today my laptop has been acting really weird and I noticed someone tried to install a keylogger on my laptop but I can't delete the setup for it or even move it to a different folder. A box pops up telling me "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." I even tried enabling my built in administrator account to delete it from that still wouldn't budge though. My anti virus doesn't seem too bothered by it but I don't want it there! lol please help -_- I am running Windows 7 home premium, pretty much brand new dell xps 15z.

A:Single user PC why do I need Admin + Owner + Users ?

I can appreciate your frustration, Russell. The learning curve from XP to 7 can be kinda steep. One of the issues many people first have is the increased security offered by Windows 7. As you said in your post about your XP machines, "They are all standalone PCs -- stable and they let me "in"." That was one of XP's major problems ... lots of malware was able to get in as well as the authorized user(s).

When a new 7 computer is first set up, the initial account created is an administrator account so you can make required changes to the computer (like choosing language of choice, setting computer time zone, etc.) So there always has to be at least one administrator account on a 7 machine.

But to add to the confusion, this is an "unelevated" administrator account. In other words, there are some tasks (such as running a system file checker scan [sfc /scannow] from a command prompt), that cannot be done without jumping through one more hoop. If you open a command prompt in 7 (either by typing cmd in the start menu search box or using the long way start > all programs > accessories > command prompt) you have to right-click the command prompt icon and select "Run as administrator". It's just another security feature to make it more difficult for malware to get in.

A lot of people who are the only ones using the computer leave things as is ... running with that administrator account. Nothing wrong with that if you're careful and know what sites you're visiting, what email attachments you're opening, etc. But for an extra degree of security many people operate as a standard user just because it does make it more difficult for malware to get in. This tutorial goes into more detail about the various account types.

User Account Type - Change

As far as obtaining a Windows 7 installation disk, you could check out Step 4 in this tutorial (doing a repair install of Windows 7.)

Repair Install

You could download the ISO file for your version of Windows 7, save it to desktop, then burn it to a DVD. If you ever did a repair install or a clean install, just use the Product Key on your Toshiba laptop to re-activate with Microsoft. Hope some of this helps and doesn't make things even more confusing.

icacls C:\ /grant administrators:F /T /C

So would this set folders permissions and junk so the wandering folders permissions,ect get fixed.
Is there anyway you can just turn off security/permissions,ect so you will not get owner/permissions issues anymore?

Yes I did turned off UAC since it dose not let me load programs at start up in admin mode.

A:icacls to reset everything(sec/owner/premision) to admin.

The easiest way is to just grant "everyone" full control over the whole hard disk, so bye bye security and anyone/anything will never get an "access denied" error.
However, I think It's a VERY bad idea. That does the trick, but I would suggest AGAINST using it.

There is also a trick that lets you run elevated programs at startup, even with UAC enabled. First you can use this tutorial to create a shortcut to the program: Elevated Program Shortcut - Create for Standard User
Then place that shortcut under the startup folder of start menu.

A:Am admin but not admin need to download .dll file

Hi Frankenddude, welcome to the Seven Forums.

A normal user account with administrator rights is not the same than built-in administrator account. The built-in administrator, sometimes also called as Super User, is the most powerful of all different user accounts in Windows, and because a normal user could do some serious harm if he was always using this account, it's by default disabled. This tutorial tells you more: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

However, you can temporarily use these super rights by launching a program by right clicking its icon and selecting Run as administrator from the context menu. For instance if you want to extract a zipped packet to some of the protected folders like Program Files or Windows, start the application you use for extracting (WinRAR, WinZip etc.) by right clicking its shortcut or icon, select Run as administrator and then use the applications menus to bring the packet you want to extract to application, then extract it where you want to. Running WinRAR for instance as an administrator let's you to extract packets wherever you want to.

If the packet is a self-extracting exe, just right click it and select Run as administrator.

4.Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
5.Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
6.In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
7.You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.

2. Sometimes search doesn't work on my stand alone HD (WD My Book 1140). I searched something I knew was there, and it showed no results. No idea why that's happening.

Why don't you uncheck them inside msconfig

Click on the button type msconfig inside the Search programs and files and press <Enter> on the keyboard . Once you're on the System Configuration window click on the Startup tab and uncheck those programs from starting up . Click Ok and then click on Exit without Restart and restart manually .

I keep getting a message in Spanish (I'm trying to download a Spanish language course) that says I can't download because I need the system admin to allow it. I'm the administrator as it''s only me on the home system but can't get to the area where I might allow it. The Windows help topic (an oxymoron) suggests creating a standard acct but if you're the only user you can't, go figure. I've tried the trusted site thing, saving the page as web folder (sorry, maybe stupid but I'm desperate) to circumvent the admin issue. Oh, I get that exclamation point in the message if that means anything.
I just want to learn a little Spanish, is that too much to ask....!?!

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 openning 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??

Hi,

I use restricted user accounts on my system to protect it against damage (hopefully). To do the administrative job, like installing software etc, runas is used.

Unfortunately runas does not work for Windows Updates via Internet Explorer.

Is it possible to give a single user the permission to run updates without compromising the system security. The user should get this rights only temporarily. Similar to the runas behaviour.

Thanks

A:Windows Update with Admin Permission

Use the built-in Administrator account. If you have never set a password for this account, you can logon by leaving the password field blank. I would suggest that you not leave it that way, but set a password, one that you can remember, and also write it down and keep it in a safe place.

I would also advise using a password reset disk and keep that in a safe place:

From Start > Help and Support:
"To create a password reset disk
The Forgotten Password Wizard lets you create a password reset disk that you can use to recover your user account and personalized computer settings if you forget your password.

The steps to perform this task differ depending on whether your computer is a member of a network domain or is part of a workgroup (or is a stand-alone computer).

My computer is on a domain:

Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to open the Windows Security dialog box.
Click Change Password.
Click Backup to open the Forgotten Password Wizard.
Click Next and then follow the instructions as they appear on the screen.

My computer is not on a domain:

The steps to perform this task differ depending on the type of user account you have.

If you have a computer administrator account

Open User Accounts in Control Panel.
Click your account name.
Under Related Tasks located on the left side of the window, click Prevent a forgotten password.
In the Forgotten Password Wizard, follow the instructions as they appear on the screen.
If you have a limited account

Open User Accounts in Control Panel.
Under Related Tasks located on the left side of the window, click Prevent a forgotten password.
In the Forgotten Password Wizard, follow the instructions as they appear on the screen.
Notes

To open User Accounts, click Start, click Control Panel, and then click User Accounts.
For information about using the password reset disk, click Related Topics."

Whenever you want to run Windows Update (the first Tuesday of the month is the MS default date for updates, although critical/security updates/patches are made available on an unscheduled basis), logon as Administrator, run Windows Update (if some update requires a computer restart, you will need to logon again as Administrator after the restart in order for that update to complete) and when Windows Update has completed all its tasks, logoff the Administrator account and then logon to your own account that you use regularly.

I always advise never using an account in the Administrators Group to run routinely. Always use an account in a lessor priviledged account group for normal use as a security measure.

You can visit my homepage and click on Simple Security.

I called tech support and the guy said that it wasn't a problem with the software, it was a user permissions problem, even though I have only one account (mine) and it's the admin account. So I tried running the installer again, but this time I made sure to hit "run as administrator". Same error message.

Hello,

My girlfriend set up an admin account to block certain websites from me. I idiotically deleted that admin account. Now I am unable to do literally anything without permission from a nonexistent account. Every time I try to run ANYTHING, it grays out the "yes" option and tells me I need to enter the administrator password. I can't even run the command prompt as an admin. When I try to do the "net user administrator /active:no" command, it gives me a system 5 error. I can't restore to a time before she ever made the admin account because it needs permission. I can't reinstall Windows because to run the tool to make a bootable USB, I need permission. And there is NO ACCOUNT to get permission from anymore. I have no idea what to do. Someone please, please help me.

Thank you.

Hello petitejete,

You will find many threads where this problem has occurred. The only way you can resolve this is to activate the hidden Administrator account and use it to create a new admin account on your system. This will then give you back the ability you had before. The only way you can do this is to run Option 4 in the following tutorial. You will need to use the Microsoft Tech Bench rather than the Media Creation Tool to download a Windows ISO that matches your current W10 version.

Right click the installer and select Run as administrator.

To put it simply, you are an administrator, not THE administrator.

Your Windows 7 system is THE administrator. You can get round the nag prompt or error by disabling UAC but this isn't advisable unless you are confident in what you do.

For file movement, activate the Windows 7 hidden admin account.
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe above under programs - select run as admin. Then type

Code:

net user administrator /active:yes

Logoff your account and the user account named Administrator will be waiting for you at the logon screen.

DO NOT delete your currect "user-admin" account - you will need it to install certain security Windows Updates. Also, if you set a password for the hidden admin account and forget it/ lose it.... you will need to reinstall Windows 7.

I have administrator rights on my Windows account and I always have problems installing programs Usually it is with a folder called config msi I don't have write permission for that folder and when I install anything I get multiple not Admin Itunes does account have permission install to error messages about it I have been unable to install the latest Itunes and I tried to install it manually Everything went fine except for the usuall config msi errors until Admin account does not have permission to install Itunes the final part of the install It said it did not have permission to access the itunes folder in program files I looked at the properties of the folder and I did not have write permission The Itunes installer undid the entire install and deleted the itunes folder When I go to the program files folder I do not have write access to it and I cannot change it I followed the instructions in this forum to enable the administrator account and could not get write access to that folder from administrator either The error messages I get look like there is another account out there that is a superuser Is there any cure for this There are other files and pointers in my system such as a shortcut to my documents that I do not have permission to use I click on them and get an error message

A:Admin account does not have permission to install Itunes

My housemate had the same problem. I can't remember the exact name and path of the folder it wanted to create but it was listed in the error message. What I did was to manually create the folder (I'm pretty sure it was on the Start Menu - it's been a while) giving it the exact name it wanted. I then used takeown to make sure she had rights to modify it, then tried the installation again. Worked like a charm.

i have never had this prompt in win7, and it only happened recently when i upgraded to w8.

i am the only sole user, the only admin of my pc and i'm logged in as admin as well. UAC is disabled too.

why then, when i transfer files from one place to another - it keeps prompting that i'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this folder? clicking continue will indeed continue the transfer, but i'm sick of having to do that. running .bat files gives me the same problem as well - i never had to right click and run as admin in the past.

how do i disable those irritating prompts?

checked cmd - use net (see attached picture).
I tried : "net use* /delete" but it does not help.
Only when I connect via: "\\ip of server\folder name" everything works as it should.

Tired of Windows 7 telling me I need Admin permission!

Nothing recommended in this thread worked for me. I haven't been able to restart in safe mode (Tried holding down F8, nothing different happened, just logged in normally).




The solution is posted in there, just not step by step on how to fix it (though I wouldn't consider it a "fix"). If that annoys you, then disable UAC.

Tech Support Forum - View Single Post - Administrator

This idea did not work. I get "System error 5 has occured. Access is denied."

Turning UAC off did not work (sliding that bar all the way down to the bottom). I did restart after I did that so that the changes would take effect.




Disabling UAC had a sliding bar?? Which OS are you using, and version (Vista or 7; starter, home, pro, ultimate, or enterprise)?
I can help you further if I knew that info.

Taking ownership can be a pain in the butt. To be able to help you properly with THAT though, I need to know a bit more information:
What and where is the location of the data you are attempting to gain control of? Same hard drive? Same partition? Different user account in the same Windows install?

Those variables are important.

Hello, during a recent find of malware, either by my actions or that of the malware, my programs wouldn't open unless in Administrator permission.
After, changing some permission values in a specific application called ehn.exe (which was marked as a virus), the situation improved slightly.
Now, the malware has been found and locked, but i can't open stuff normally.

For example, an attempt to open firefox.exe by double-clicking its desktop icon, produces a Open With. Attempts to open .exe files make a Open With, pictures, Zipped extensions, seem to work. Right-clicking the toolbar on the bottom, for the Task Manger produces Application Not Found, even through the application taskmgr.exe is located at the location, it reports not found.
If I use Ctrl+Alt+Del, and open the Task Mgr from there, it works.

Ok, Vista Ult. on an nVidia MOBO, quad CPU 2.4 GHz(intel) 4Gig Ram 1Gig nVidia Video.
Ok, so the system can "rock with Vista", but suddenly, the "local" admin account lost permissions for 50% of ALL programs and folders. Then the same day, the "hidden" admin account, cannot run, access, remove, or make file or program changes. what gives????

I ran the admin cmd "takeown" for the hidden admin account, but that didn't make any change in the permissions. Programs still request "You do not have permission to ________" you fill in the blank, it occurs with anything . . .
Any ideas as to how one re-sets global permissions for an "admin" account?

Oh, and yes, I have A/V and antimalware running, upto date, and have scanned the whole system. AVG, SuperAntiSpyware, AdAware, Spysweeper,

I messed up! Big time. (at least in my mind)

I have a laptop with a drive that is partitioned. C = programs and D = files, pics, music, etc. I have to share my laptop with a family member for awhile and I don't like them looking at my stuff, so I thought I would be savvy and change the permissions so they, as a user, couldn't read or write that drive. Since I have a administrator account I figured this was the best way to protect my privacy. WRONG!!! Now when I log in, as me, the administrator, I can not access the drive. If I click on My Computer, I see drive C with 11gb free, but drive D just says NFTS.

How can I undo this mistake?

Sometimes you have to run the installation file and deliberately make it "Run as Administrator" by right clicking on the downloaded file and selecting this option. Not sure if this is the case with Google Earth but worth a try.

A:local admin account with no permit to edit other admin accounts

Local admin account by definition has access to everything and even if it doesn't it can take ownership and give itself the rights. In other words i am not sure that you can achieve what you
are trying to do.



I would suggest create a single shared local admin account and give it your desktop admins, change the password every 60-90 days to keep it more secure. This is common practice in many
organizations.

A:change guest login to admin or figure out admin password

you cant change an admins pw from a guest account....at all

only way to change the admin pw is to boot to safe mode and enter the sys admin account or use a hacking program iso which you can find easily but use at your own risk....

The firm in which I work has a Lenovo PC with Windows 10 installed. There are two user profiles on the computer, the admin and another normal account without administration rights. We have only the password of the account without administrator rights.

The network administrator had left the company surprisingly in without giving the administrator password of the PC and we cannot contact him anymore.

Now we want to install another programme and we cannot do this without an administrator account.

I disabled secure boot and have tried to boot the PC with an Linux USB Stick, but it do not boot from the stick.

Any suggestion how I either can reset the password of the administrator account or create an new account with administrator rights.

A:Windows 10 admin password reset or new account with admin rights

Although there may be techniques to recover a lost password it is forum policy that we do not discuss these here - your best bet would be to visit a local security specialist and get them to recover/reset it for you - and a change to the policy for the replacement admin may be a good idea, I always wrote a list of all passwords and stored it with the Managing Director and also in a fireproof safe

We have a script that installs a program (Office 2007). It then imports some registry file settings. It imports HKLM and HKCU. We have noticed that if this is installed as a local admin, the settings seem to take if we scan the box as a local admin(we are running a security scan to determine this (the security scan checks multiple gpo's supposed to be set by the program/reg imports). If we scan as a domain admin, the system doesn't seem to show they are set. We believe we see the opposite if it's installed as a domain admin. For the domain scan they are set, for the local scan they are not. Does this have to do with how you can change registry entries as a domain admin versus local admin? The registry settings are imported with reg.exe import filename.reg like commands in the .bat script. Any ideas are helpful.

Basically I have two admin accounts one of which belongs to another member of family and one which belongs to me. Heres the situation:

The person who owns the other Admin account is changing my accounts password (also an admin account). Surely there is some way to make it so that I can not have my account's password changed unless it is logged on to my actual account (so my account's password can only be changed if my account is logged on?)

Is there a way?

In urgent need of help!

Thanks!

A:Prevent Admin Accounts From Changing Other Admin Account Passwords In Xp!

Here's an article (for Win2K) that may help: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309799But, IMO, the issue here is that the other person can't be trusted. In such a situation I'd suggest making the other account into a Standard User account - that way they won't be able to mess with your stuff, and they'll be reliant upon you for anything that requires administrative privileges.

Recently I did a clean install from the windows installation tool off a CD I made. Soon after logging on and making my first account (again!) I couldn't open the C drive. I messed with the owner options and made my account the owner so I could open it. Possibly before or maybe after (I'm not sure) I realised I wasn't able to use any admin settings, (like add another account or see advanced system settings) open any applications that required admin rights (like CMD or any installation file) or do anything in the system menu. I've tried to look up the solution but can't find anything that fits the description of my problem. Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance for at least reading this.

Using Win 8.1

First off, the account I'am signed on with is listed as admin type account. It's the one I had to enter my windows account email.
Since installing the new MalwareBytes 2.0 program (which went in without any problem) it put an shortcut icon on desktop. I tried too move the icon from desktop to another folder and it said I needed admin rights to do this. Usually once I click on continue it gives me access and proceeds to carry out the command.
So I followed the tutorial to build hidden admin account. I type in: net user administrator /active:yes, it completed. I signed on to the admin account and tried the same operation and it still asked for admin rights.
What am I doing wrong?

UpDate: MalwareBytes 2.0 has a self protection ability that needs to not be enabled, otherwise everything associated with the Program including program icons located anywhere cannot be moved.

A:Transferring Standard (Admin) Account to Hidden Admin?

Hello milw0rm, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You could use the tutorial below to elevate your standard administrator account to have the same elevated rights as the built-in elevated Administrator account.

Be warned though, that all Metro Store apps and the Store will not work in an elevated account.

Hi guys when my pc gets to the first screen where you choose your account my admin account has changed from my name to 'Other user' and when I click on it it asks for a username and password. Also trying to access files from the admin account when it prompts me with a password I enter it and the dialogue box goes away as if it has accepted the password but does not let me access the files.

Greetings,

I am trying to change the folder properties of a applications folder from read only. I am doing this per instructions from the apps provider to prevent crashes.

When I go to change the permissions it states I need admin privileges. The only account I have on the box is the admin however I did change the name to something besides admin. The account is definitely an admin account.

Any thoughts?

A:Admin wants to share a directory with non-admin users

NTFS Folder Permissions

I'm thinking if you create a symbolic link in C:\Users\Public you may be able to let the kids go directly to the shared folder. Perhaps then you can deny Traverse permission to block the parent folder. But I haven't done it myself.

Stoik Joker,who has the NTFS permissions page in the above link, is also a regular poster on DonationCoder.com. You may be able to ask for clarifications there. And of course someone with SysAdmin type experience may chime in here.

If you succeed using external info please post the solution.

See Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable about enabling the built-in admin account. Once you get it set up I would take a system image with third party software (aomei, eg) so you have a fallback.
