Windows 7: admin user lost some admin rights


01 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7: Starter/Ultimate 32-bit
 
 
admin user lost some admin rights

I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins).

Any suggestion on what to do?

Oh, wait, that's a folder I've dowbloaded. Anyway, why is the name important at all? It's PWI Genesis, btw.

No, not yet.

This time Win claims that I don't have (lost) rights to write in disk C (one of 4 partitions of a hdd, with Win on this disk).

Anybody has any idea what is going on?
