  3. Administartor rights lost in program file and program files x86

    Hi Luca,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing with accessing the files and folders on Program file and Program file x86, we will help you with this issue.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better:

    • Have you logged in as an administrator?
    • Is this issue specific only to the Programs file and Program file x86 folders?

    Step 1: If you have logged-in as an administrator, I suggest you to follow the below steps to give permission for entire system, so that you can access the specific files.

    • Right click on the folder and click on
      Properties
      .
    • Click on Security tab and select the
      group\user name.
    • Click on Edit option and check the option
      Full control.
    • Click on Apply and then on
      Ok
      button.

    Step 2: Try the following steps and check if it helps:

    • Right-click the C: Drive that you want to take ownership of, and then click
      Properties.
    • Click the Security tab, and then click
      OK on the Security message, if one appears.
    • Click Advanced, and then click the
      Owner tab.
    • In the Name list, click your user name,
      Administrator if you are logged in as Administrator, or click the
      Administrators group.

      If you want to take ownership of the contents of that folder, click to select the
      Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.
    • Click OK.

    • You may receive the following error message, where
      Folder is the name of the folder that you want to take ownership of:
      You do not have permission to read the co1ntents of directory Folder. Do you want to replace the directory permissions with permissions granting you Full Control? All permissions will be replaced if you press
      Yes.
    6. Click Yes.

    7. Click OK, and then reapply the permissions and security settings that you want for the folder and the folder contents.

    Hope it helps. Try the above and reply to the post with an updated status of this issue for further assistance, we will be happy to help you.
