Windows 7: Administrator rights

Administrator rights

I think I have problem with my admin. account , a few times I couldnt delete folder or a file and firefox 16.0.1 sometimes wont save the application. It says that application cant be saved, because its not allowed to change content of the folder, change the properties of the folder or change path for downloads, but on c: its the same. I dont know if thats firefox fault, because before update it worked perfectly. Im 99% sure that my admin account was changed somehow.



I used system restore, but it did not help. User account says Im administrator.


Under user profiles I have this(attachment)

Can I put DigDeep account on the top, or can I delete default profile? Whats wrong?

Edit: I try to delete folder, and it says You require permission from Administrators to make changes to the folders. But than after few seconds, I can delete folder. ????

Whether you have a problem with your User Account I'm not sure. But you don't need to move the DigDeep account to the top. It doesn't matter where it is in that list. It is only a List with no hierarchy. As long as it is in the list that is all the counts.

There are some folders on the system partition that can not be written to. Post the names of folders you are having problems with.

Yes I know that, but its ordinary folders I have problem with. I dont know, downloads, or I made new folder, and then I couldnt delete it, but then like I said after few secons its deleteable(is this even a word). The first picture was folder in Program files, at first that message poped out, but then I delete it.

Is creator owner normal under security(C. program files)


And is it Ok if I add all administrators permissions to Users DigDeep. Im the only user.

There is really something wrong. I never had a problem with pasting and copying files. And now sometimes I cant do that without a message from explorer.


Is it normal if I click Take Ownership on c: d: or e: that it says:

ERROR: File or directory not found

This can be deleted, because now everything is back to normal.
