Windows 7: problem with Itunes

problem with Itunes

When I try to open Itunes, I get the following error:
"The Itunes Library.itl file is locked, on a locked disk or you do not have written permission for this file"

I then went to the file, took ownership of it and tried to pen it but the same error. I looked in Properties for the.itl file and discovered that in the security permissions there is a permission there for one of my accounts that says read and writ only which is probably the cause of the problem. I tried to create a new permission for my account and give it full control, but it only added a new one and didn't change the old permission.For the old permission when you click on it, the remove permission is grayed out so that I can't change it in any way. I was wondering if anybody could help me with this problem so that I could get Itunes working again, Thanks.

Hi MusicalRabbi2k3,

Welcome to Sevenforums

I tried that. I was the owner of the file before. It seems like, for some reason the first 4 permissions were inherited from the hard drive and for all of them the remove button is grayed out even for my user even though my user is also the owner. I can click on them and edit them. When I change the permissions, It just adds a new permission entry that does not override the previous ones and for the new ones, under "inherited from" it says not inherited instead of E: where the program was installed

I was talking about Replacing the Owner, but not just "Taking ownership". Please provide screenshot of the same windows you did in the fist post, but with Owner tab.

Which user Account are you Recieving this issue for? - The highlighted user account (In the image provided) Only has Read permissions - you will need to click edit and Tick the Full Control Box then apply your settings

Hope This Helps,
