Had this problem with creating folders in some specific "areas".
First off, I got Windows 7 RC Build 7100. My account is categorized as administrator and I have even enabled the built-in admin account. I tried logging on the admin account but could not create any folders in my "E:\Andras\Files and Programs". It kept saying that I need permission. Note that this is not C:\. The folder "Files and Programs" was created as a regular folder.
Now, I tried the .reg file in this site, the one named createfolderfix.reg or something like that. The message that came up after trying to merge it was that it didn't merge completely as some of of the files were damaged.
I also tried to give my own account Full Control in "Properties -> Security
". But as I click Apply (or OK) it says "Denied" and shows the filename. I can click continue but it just shows the next file/folder.
The thing is, I am admin on my computer. I should be able to change anything and make any and every change I want to. Even the built-in admin account needed permission to create a new folder in that specified one. I'm seriously out of options. How can I make myself have Full Control?
Would be glad if there was an easy solution I've just overlooked.
