Hi everyone, first time on this forum, thanks for all the help with getting win 7 up and running. Got a new desktop pc and managed to set up everything with the help of this forum. Long time xp user, never went to vista so had to learn lots of new stuff. Lots of good help here. Anyways managed to get everything up and running and lots of my old apps installed and operating. Took a bit to figure out work group vs home group so my xp laptop still works and even got to the network printer. Was feeling pretty good about how well this went until this AM....
Started up pc and surfed the web for about 1 hr, no problems. Went to explorer to learn more about how libraries works.. VERY confusing so far. I notice that there are TWO copies of my documents, one with an arrow pointing into the folder, figured something was writing to it, I'll just wait, lots of minutes go by and nothing is happening, task manager isn't running any apps, cpu usage is less than 5%. When I click on the file access denied. I go to C and see about 10 files with in arrows on the folders and the access denied message when you click on them.
While the access denied window was open the command line was turning green, ok I'll wait, just sat there for 10-15 min .. nothing. Looked at the files and found that that the SYSTEM was the OWNER of the files and I couldn't change.Tried to restore to two days ago.. again access denied error, couldn't restore. This went on for about 3 hours. I was just about ready to get out the boot disks and start over when the in arrows disappeared and everything went back to normal.
Has anyone seen this or have any idea what would cause this??
