Windows 7: Give myself permission

27 May 2011   #11

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1

Sounds like "Take Ownership" shortcut would be of use to you, so you could keep using your usual admin account.
Here's the tutorial to add it to the context menu: Take Ownership Shortcut

Also, just because it says Windows "Pro," that doesn't mean you have to know absolutely everything to use it. Windows "Pro"fessional just includes a few more features and capabilities than Home Edition does. You're cool stickin with Pro.

It's likely that when you clicked on the download link, you chose 'Run' (IE8) or 'Save and Run' (IE9), which allows the download to run immediately after downloading. I recommend choosing 'Save' or 'Save As'. Then it will not automatically install, so you can right click on the install file and make your own choices, including what features you want installed (custom install) and 'Run as admin'.

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

I would like to thank both of you for your kind help. I can take ownership of individual files, but since there are several hundred thousand on the computer, it is impractical to do this for each individual file.
BTW, my default browser is Firefox 4.
I have decided that since Nero is giving me so much trouble, I'll just take the loss and go on with other software.
