I have been given a project to test Windows 7 Pro in my work environment and our Desktop administration team has simply given me a stripped down version of Win 7 Pro, with little modifications.
I got an error message when trying to install our e-mail client, and noticed it is not allowing me to write to the c:\windows folder. I checked the permissions for it, and literally, NO ACCOUNT has full control or even write permissions to this folder- not even the local administrator account. I have been unable to add permissions to the folder, because there is no account that has them...
I'm not sure what to do about this, and i'm quite surprised that the permissions are not there.
The local administrators have full control of C:\ and I attempted to force child objects of c:\ to inherit permissions from C:\, but it did not work.
Anybody have any ideas on what I should do?
