  1. Error Message "Access Denied. You need administrator permission to delete this file."


    I am using Windows 10.


    My user account gives me Administrator privileges.


    I am trying to delete an unwanted program from my PC all files and folders. I am currently unable to do this - the error message described above is generated.


    I right clicked on the program folder in Windows Explorer, selected Properties - Security - Advanced tab.


    The folder owned is named as 'TrustedInstaller'.


    How do I become the current owner using my Windows 10 User Account?


    I have the only User Account on my PC.

    :)

  2. cannot access file/or permissions

    I have a file i need to run on Windows 7 Home Premium. I get the error message saying "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

    So I right click and choose Properties to access the permissions but I cannot. In the Security tab I get a message saying, " You do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings.".

    Next I boot into the Windows 7 Hidden Administrator Mode - and even with this I get all the same error messages.

    Please help me as I really need to run This file.

    Unable to access a folder, it denies permission

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with permission.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.1. Is the issue specific with a particular folder?

    2. What is the complete error message?

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Permission issue.

    • Corrupt User Account.

    • Damaged files.

    I suggest you to try the steps under the section Issue 1:

    Denied Access to delete files

    I am experiencing the infamous Blue Screen irregularly and I suspect from reading posts it is linked to AVG Internet Security product. I bought this but later canceled it and thought I had uninstalled it. However later I found that the uninstallation left a lot, if not all, the files behind. Windows, Ccleaner etc. showed the program as being deleted. I subsequently searched AVG and then tried deleting all files found. I am the only user and the administrator; I do not enter my MS password at start-up. I have managed to delete a large no. of files but I am left with several where each time I try to delete I get a message "File access denied - you need to provide administrator permission to delete this file" I click on Continue but I am still denied access.

    How do I get access to delete these files?
