  1. lack sufficient permissions

    My user account refuses to allow me to be the administrator, tells me I lack sufficient permissions to change files. I am the only user. As a test user I can be administrator. Help. Adobe guys spent hours trying to make their apps let me import or export files. Nothing worked until they created a test user and opened lightroom there and it worked. Can I regain permissions in my user account or can I migrate my stuff to the new one? db

  2. No permissions


    I would suggest you to right click on the user's folder for your profile and check if the permissions shows as "read only'. If this is the case, it might be causing the issue. In this case, I would suggest you to go to C:\User folder, right click on the
    folder with your username and follow these steps:

    • Open the properties of the main user profile folder where the files are located (such as Documents, Pictures, etc).
    • Go to the Security tab and click Advanced.
    • Check the box at the bottom of this window. It is labeled "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object" and then click Ok.
    This does a one-time action that replaces the security on all the files/subfolders. It’s one-time, so you won’t find that box checked if you peek at it later. Try these steps and let us know the results for further assistance.

  3. NTFS File System Permissions

    Its already listed above in great detail however,

    1) Files that are protected by "TrustedInstaller"/Windows (example: Internet Explorer, etc.)

    2) Program Files, however you can find this inherent "protection" other places

    3) It says that I lack sufficient permissions (and again like stated above I am part of the administrator group, and I have tried claiming ownership over the files/ to no avail)

    lack sufficient permissions

    Permission issue

    Presumably because TrustedInstaller is the owner (hence you need its permission), suggesting that img3.jpg was installed by Windows at some time.

    Presumably that also means it can be uninstalled. How did you get it in the first place? Where is it located?

    If you really want to delete it yourself, then taking ownership would seem a logical first step.
