Windows 7: Access Denied on Admin Login?

Access Denied on Admin Login?

Hey guys, here's the deal.
I upgraded my OS a few months ago to 64 bit with new components etc.
I kept all of the old system files and folders JUST for if it went wrong, now ive sorted them all out, the old system files, and adobe is locked for some reason? I keep trying to change all of the administration but it just jumps straight back to before, but hey, im in no hurry to change it, its only 15gb of useless copies! Its just niggling at me and i would like to get it sorted if theres any other way?
ie changing the admin account so i can change - everything-, as I'm not exactly new with computers, been studying them for years.

Thanks a lot for the assistance in advance guys Looking forward to some suggestions!

- Also, a little off topic if anyones got enough time to add some wisdom to the thread, ive just bought a super duper cooler for my CPU as when i run on normal settings on a game I play, LotrO, the manufacturers fan goes mad, and it really gets my goat making a loud whirring sound, would I be able to run on High-Ultra with a duel core amd athlon 2? with that fan I have "Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Socket 775 CPU Cooler" it wouldnt make any sound as its made for being quiet and cool very well. i suppose the only sign of the strain is artifacts in-game? Thanks again

You should right-click the folder, go to properties, click the Security tab, click the Advanced button, click the Owner tab, and then click the edit button. Select your account from the list, click to check the box labeled "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects", and then click the OK button to apply permissions. Exit out of the properties dialog, and (unless you also need to add yourself full control to the permissions on the properties / security tab) you should now be able to delete the folder.

As soon as i press ok, it comes up with you cannot change this, access is denied, this is really irritating!

Are you logged on as "an" Administrator, or with *the* Administrator account? It makes a difference.

Im the only user of my computer, therefore being the only admin, i assume... Its the only account on here

That doesn't mean it's the administrator. If you're running Windows 7 Ultimate (as your specs indicate), try running lusrmgr.msc, enable the actual Administrator account, set a password, and switch users. Try again as the Administrator account - once you're done (it *should* work), you can use lusrmgr to disable the admin account again.
