Windows 7: Win 7 - Local Security Policy, Access Denied

20 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
Win 7 - Local Security Policy, Access Denied

Norton/Symantec, in its ever-ibimitable wisdom installs its Internet Security and Utilities packages into a locked folder(s). By locked I mean that one CANNOT modify (Rename, Delete, etc) the installed folder(s) and any of its sub-objects. I AM an administrator user, so I SHOULD (expect to) have such ability. Rather, I am issued Access Denied errors when attempting any form of modification of the folder(s) and/or its sub-objects. When attempting to change access security on the folder (modifying Administrator's access rules) I am again denied access...stupid. Can't get there from here!!!!

What does one do to overcome this most annoying impediment? I'm assuming that it would be through acces of the Local Security Policy function.

Probably some negative comment is due Microsoft for its clumsy implementation of security and the difficulty(s) trying to manage it, resulting in utter frustration.

Thanks in advance.

You can try this: Take Ownership Shortcut
And this: Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

Norton's files are locked to keep slagware from deleting, disabling, or otherwise modifying them.
