  1. I need permission to modify or edit /System32 even though I am Admin


    For some infuriating reason, I cannot edit or modify the /System32 folder on my PC. I am an admin, and I even created an entirely new user with admin permissions. I need to replace msvcp120.dll with a new copy because an installer for a game that I am trying to install but when I run the installer, says that msvcp120.dll is missing even though when I look in /System32 its there. This has never happened to me before but the only recent changes I made to my PC is having my drivers updated using AMD's auto driver update program.

    I am pretty sure that this issue is related to me and not the game's installer itself, so if anyone can, please help me out.

    Thanks.

    :)

  2. Nobody in group or user names haves permission to modify system32

    Hello Robert,

    We realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with System32 files. We will certainly help you.

    In this case you need to enable the build in administrator account and then check the permissions fro all the users on System32 files. Follow the steps below to enable build in administrator account.

    1. Right click on the Start menu and select
    Command Prompt (Admin).


    2. On the command line type: net user administrator /activate:yes
    and hit Enter on your keyboard.

    This will enable your build in Administrator account. Restart your computer and login with the administrator account. Once you are in the Build in administrator account you can check the permissions for the other user profiles
    by right click on System32 file and select properties and then check for the permissions.

    Once you have successfully given permission for other user profiles,
    disable the Build in administrator account by following steps given below:

    1. Right click on the start menu and select Command prompt (admin).

    2. On the command line type: net user administrator /activate:no
    and hit Enter on your keyboard.

    This will disable the build in administrator account.

    Let us know the result. We will be happy to assists you further.

    Thank you.

    Editing permissions

    Hi ejmw,

    Issues that you experience when you try to access files and folders may be related to permissions. Permissions are rules that determine whether you can access or change files and folders. To check permissions on a file or a folder, follow these steps:

    • Press and hold or right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.
    • Tap or click the Security tab.
    • Under Group or user names, tap or click your name to see the permissions that you have.

    To change the permissions of a file or folder, follow these steps:

    • Press and hold or right-click the file or folder, and then tap or click
      Properties
      .
    • Tap or click the Security tab.
    • Under Group or user names, tap or click your name to see the permissions that you have.
    • Tap or click Edit, tap or click your name, select the check boxes for the permissions that you must have, and then click
      OK.

    Important: You must be logged on as an administrator to change permissions on files and folders.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

    I need permission to modify or edit /System32 even though I am Admin

    Undeletable Folder Icon in File Explorer


    Are you running as a standard or admin user?
    I run as admin (tho' that's not recommended for security reasons but many do of course).
    If as standard, try running as admin.

    Or you might try running O&O regedit as admin.

    Otherwise, suggests a permissions problem.

    To have that many registry entries left after running Revo begins to suggest maybe Revo hasn't got permission access to delete them.

    Also try my suggestion with Revo Pro (trial).

    Having made backups, you could try Tweaking.com's repair tool, observing its cautious steps and selecting ONLY the appropriate permissions repair.

    I would suggest you first make a screenshot of a registry key you can't modify/edit/delete, then run the tool, then try the same operation and see if there's any change.
