Windows 7 Professional

Thanks Ken & Carl. I tried this in Safe Mode and it let me change some and not others.

It would not let me change any of the files in c:\windows\system32\driverstore\filerepository\.... or in c:windows\winsxs\amd64......

I have had a couple of crashes this week (before making the change) but will see if this change helps.

BSOD on Dell Vostro 1500 Laptop
Hi, I was wondering if I could get a 2nd opinion on the dump files from my BSODs. I get them pretty consistently and at first I thought it had to do with some flash/ad blocking plugins i was using with firefox, but it kept happening with IE as well. One of the dumps says utorrent.exe, but i'm...
