Windows 7: desktop integritylevel keeps dropping to 'low'

I'm in the Netherlands where did you see otherwise?

What should I do while in the def Admin accound?

I'm on a 'regular' account (called it 'user') with admin rights right now...

I googled a bit further (using the url you posted as inspiration, tnx).
It's better explained in here: http://superuser.com/questions/32242...e-item-by-item

Quote:
Inheritance rights in English:
  • (I) "Inherited": This ACE was inherited from the parent container.
  • (OI) "Object inherit": This ACE will be inherited by objects placed in this container.
  • (CI) "Container inherit": This ACE will be inherited by subcontainers placed in this container.
  • (IO) "Inherit only": This ACE will be inherited (see OI and CI), but does not apply to this object itself.
  • (NP) "Do not propagate": This ACE will be inherited by objects and subcontainers one level deep – it will not apply to things inside subcontainers.
I think this means that using (IO) earlier on did not change the level of the desktop folder to 'high' it just changed that of it's children? I tried just using icacls D:\Desktop /setintegritylevel H

Perhaps this is the solution. If the problem does not come back in a few days, I'll mark this as solved.

Whilst logged in to the Default Administrator see if the situation is the same! You have higher permissions there than in your User Account. Are you OK to enable the Default Admin?

Small point but I looked at your profile and saw that your time zone is shown as the US!

Sure, I could just run "net user administrator /active:yes", but I tried using "icacls D:\Desktop /setintegritylevel H" and like to verify whether or not the problem persists. If so I'll mark this thread as solved, if not I'll try creating other accounts and/or enabling the admin acc and I'll bump this thread. Perhaps it's solved already, so let's just wait for a few days.

Yeah, I did see the wrong timezone, should be the right one now?

*edit*
Is the integrity level saved in the os (registry for example) or in the file-system as meta-data?

Could the integrity level be low because of something that happened on an earlier install?

Anyway, the problem did not yet return this morning. 9/2/2012
You see, I did not whips the D Partition, only the C containing the system.

If "icacls D:\Desktop /setintegritylevel (OI)(NP)(IO)H" only applies on children (Inherit Only),
then perhaps the integrity level was lowered only once and never correctly restored.

*Bump*

That was fast =/ ok it happend an other time.

Perhaps I should try another reinstall?

What would you like me to do in the admin acc? (please explain more clearly) The inegrity level is not depended on the user account is it?

*edit*

I guess an update went bad. I'll try if another reinstall is any good.

Why is your Desktop User folder in the D: root? This might help understand the problem better.

If you moved the User folder from C to D using User Folders - Change Default Location then restore it to default location to see if that solves the issue. User Folders - Restore Default Location - Windows 7 Forums

Hey guys,

I reinstalled again, let's just see if that will be the end of it.

I moved these folders because I keep a system-partition-backup on an USB flashdrive and use this to 'reinstall'. The D partition is to save myself the hassle of copying my files from my external backup.

All I usually do is restore the system backup (acronis) end enjoy how my shortcuts are still there since they happened to be saved to the D partition.

Today I remade the system backup (after a 'real' clean install), just in case the backup was bad.

I would strongly recommend you follow gregrockers advice. He is the one to follow!!!!!!!! EDIT: IMHO, of course!

I apologize to you guys for seeming a bit skeptic. I should have told you right from the start: I already tried moving it around quite a bit. I did not yet move it to it's default location, but did move it to an exFAT flashdrive, so there's no chance of any metadata surviving that. (exFAT does not keep metadata does it?) However this did not help and let me to believe it was caused by a (possibly corrupt) windows process.

I am afraid I cannot test gregrocker's suggestion, since I reinstalled just before reading his comment and the problem did not (yet!) re-occur.

Let's see if it returns first, if it doesn't I'll report back, if it does, I'll try gregrocker's suggestion and report the result.

A better method than moving the shell User folders is to copy them to the other partition or drive, then rightclick each to link to the related Library - Include a Folder - Windows 7 Forums . After they're all showing up in each library from the other drive you can delete the C User folder content.

This avoids various unintended consequences we've seen here.

You think this was caused by improper way of moving the folders?

That's odd, I used to do it like this all the time and it never ended up this way before...

I really think something went wrong during installation tbh

*edit*
especially since I don't use the libraries, see:

Start Menu User Folder Buttons - Open to Users Instead of Libraries

I should have mentioned that as well
