    Windows 10 Permissions Issues


    I've noticed two issues issues related to permissions after the upgrade to Windows 10. I used the upgrade process using a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro, telling Windows 10 to keep nothing. It would appear to be the same file system, as windows.old existed after the upgrade.

    1. Uncompressed Bitdefender in the downloads directory and after installing, I literally cannot delete the folder. Keeps giving me permissions errors, even though I was the one that uncompressed it and I have full permissions in the directory structure. I even went to take ownership of it (which failed) and reset inheritance (which also failed).

    2. While I have read you use Disk Cleanup to remove it, it seems wrong that you cannot delete the windows.old directory structure without using Disk Cleanup. There should be nothing using it and you should be able to escalate permissions to remove it. Anyone know what is going on here? To the best of my recollection, Windows 8 upgrade allowed you to remove it and didn't behave strangely like that.

    Any thoughts?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 upgrade makes my computer shut down randomly

    I have the same issue. MY Windows 10 is a new OEM install. BECAUSE, last update fried my hardrive. So new SSD Drives, New OEM professional install and SINCE that install, nothing but random shutdowns. Professional diagnostic from a nationally known computer
    center could not find anything. Thought it was a power cord issue. PLEASE UPDATE Windows 10. From the web searches I see Many Many people having this issue. SO, when it came time for my son to go off to college, we decided to buy him a MAC laptop.

    Windows 10 Permissions Issues

    When I try to save something I've edited online or other, I get an error saying that I don't have permission to access the folder, and then I am asked if I would like to save the doc or pictures , when I click yes I get the same error again. I've read every
    single post and user and Microsoft answer and I don't know about anyone else but this is VERY FRUSTRATING and affecting my ability to work.

    Microsoft keeps giving the same boilerplate suggested fixes which don't work.
