Windows 10: Administration Rights

  1. Administration Rights


    I am the sole user on my Windows 10 Pro installation with Administration rights, so why do I see this when I try & save to Windows folder:


    Administration Rights [​IMG]


    However, I can save to a different location & copy the file to the Windows folder albeit with the following prompt:


    Administration Rights [​IMG]


    If I try & change permissions to include Administrator I get this:


    Administration Rights [​IMG]


    with no ability to add the Administrator.

    Why can't I change things as I like to be in control & not have to work around restrictions such as this.

    :)

    Administration rights to Windows 10

    1. I am using ASUS i Core 5 Laptop with Windows 10.

    2. This has been upgraded to the 'Anniversary' version also.

    3. When logging in, I use my PIN as preference.....I am greeted after a few seconds with the following error via the CMD utility screen.

    This simply 'BOBS' up as I am about to action my laptop.

    I have always had ONE account as listed as an ADMINISTRATOR.

    4. Microsoft reinstalled W10 for me today....but I am still getting this error pop up.

    I have run diagnostics

    5. I have also run Software to try and fix the REG Keys but to no avail.

    Can anyone assist please

    Thank you

    Philip

    Thanks Dave......although being Arsene Wenger I will still trust you!

    Firstly, I have no idea where this came from but it's here.....I have tried to locate this 'APP' but no luck.

    I have tried searching for it under 'Reg Converter' and or 'Sordum'

    Apologies for my lack of skill, but how do I go about locating this 'bug'?

    I certainly don't want it and never did.....I guess it is beware of hidden software when downloading software you actually want?

    Thank you

    Phil

    Administration Rights

    Windows will not let you save directly to protected system folders for security purposes. *Sad

    You will only be able to directly save to a user folder location first. Afterwards, you will be able to copy/move to a system folder location.

  5. I understand what you are saying as this has been my experience but how does saving to a different location & copy/moving to Windows make Windows any more secure than saving it directly to Windows in first instance.

    Surely, it defeats the security objective - just a thought.

    Even when you copy/move to a protected system folder, you have to approve it first, so it's still using a security feature.

    It's all designed to help prevent users and/or malware from being able to modify or replace system files/folders without your approval first. This at least helps to give you a fighting chance if malware tries to.
