Windows 7: very annoying problem: admin changes itself to standard

23 Aug 2009   #11

xp, w7

problem solved: ok guys - i cannot say i am not happy at the moment. here's how i got rid of the ownership troubles: as nothing would help - not even the take ownership hack i simply cleaned all the user priviliges on all drives (the ones in the security settings) and added the ones i have on my c drive (incl inheriting them downwards). that cleared the mess and let me have the files back.

thanks everyone for helping

account changing from admin to standard

Does anyone having this problem have a Toshiba PC?

This problem has occued ever since I bought a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Laptop had Vista pre installed and Toshiba sent a Win 7 system as soon as it was released. Toshiba has made extensive changes to both Vista and Win 7..After a long unsuccessful session with Toshiba support I was told to reinstall the Win7 from scratch and not do an update (witch took 3 and a half to four hours) with no assurance that it would fix the problem. This is unacceptable..
Another long session with Microsoft failed to find a fix. Both Microsoft and myself feel this is Toshiba's problem. Microsoft even waived the $59.00 fee.!!!
