Windows 7: Administrator issues

Administrator issues

Hey. Thanks for any help in advance.

I have recently reinstalled windows 7 on drive C (one hard drive divided into C and D).

On drive D I am trying to delete a folder and won't let me. Says I don't have administrator rights.

When I look into the security tag in the folder properties it is different to most of the other folders.

In the "Group or user name" box it has had follows

Everyone
Account unknown (S-1-5-21- then numerous numbers)
(S-1-5-21- then numerous numbers - same as above)

The bottom two lines have 'full control" ticked. The 'everyone" line doesn't have full control ticked.

When I then go into "edit" I can't click on anything.
I find this administrator think very confusing.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Michael

You need to take ownership of the D partition. See this thread.
