Tried that,done that,still confused.
I am trying to gain permission to open "Documents & Settings" and other folders in the C drive. I downloaded the "Take ownership" reg key and it was added to the registry. When I click on Documents & Settings I have System and Admun showing full permission allowed. Under Advanced I have permissions showing full control, Not inherited, Apply to this folder, subfolders & files. Under Owner I show my name. Still I can not open Documents & Settings.
Also how do I show "Protected operating system files"? Apparently that is part of the problem in opening Documents & Settings? I can even see C:\Usersxxxxx on my computer.
On many folders when I try to open I get "You will need admin privileges". What? I am showing as the Admin all over the place.
Additional guidance would be greatly appreciated.
