    Win 10 permission issues, please help


    Hello All,

    I have win 10 on my PC
    I attached an external hard drive with win 7 on it
    I wanted to access "Documents and settings" so I ran (used) your reg file "Add_Reset_Permissions_to_context_menu.reg"

    I got access to the files I wanted and somehow my PC got corrupted, I really don't understand..

    I can't run Outlook or Firefox, but they can both launch wih administrator account.

    I tried a restore point on my PC which changed nothing...

    Can you please guide my to restore permission defaults on my own PC ?

    There are so many tips and solutions here, I'm extremely afraid now to touch anything unless I'm 1000% sure *Sad

    What exactly did change on my PC so Outlook not running correctly? Which folder? Registry Key?
    I've uninstalled firefox.. tried to re-install.... the installer hangs...

    Please help
    Thank you!!

    :)
     

  2. Windows 10 Permissions Issues

    Hooray!!!! Thanks so much, you are a superstar. Issue resolved.

    I thought the fact that "Administrators" were listed in the permissions meant that all Admins had access, but apparently not. Now I added my specific login account, it works fine.

    Thanks so much for your help, these UAC things in Windows are quite confusing, I am not (entirely) stupid!!

    Need Help With Windows Permissions Control Issues


    Taking ownership can sometimes just be the first step. You may then need to add your account to the list of those that have permissions and grant yourself full control. On the Security tab, to change permissions, click 'Edit', then click 'Add' to add your account.
