Windows 7: You need permission to perform this action?

You need permission to perform this action?

I just installed Windows 7 and it doesn't seem so great right now. This is getting really annoying. The message...

"You need permission to perform this action.
You require permission from administrators to make changes to this folder"

keeps popping up. I've tried everything and it's getting really annoying. Does anyone have any suggestions.

It's...

Computer > Local Disk (C: ) > Users > Public > Games > World Of Warcraft > Interface > Addons.

I try to delete folders and it won't let me. I'm the only user on the PC so...

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Its more than likely blizzard have made the file so you cannot delete it unless you change it around.
First try this
Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums

And if that doesnt work right click the file your trying to delete and click properties>Security>Click your User group (usally your name and/or Admin>Edit and check all the boxes and click ok.

Either one or the other will work.

Thanks for trying, but neither of those worked. Everything is checked except for "Special permissions" which is greyed out.
