Windows 7: driver installation and ownership issues

driver installation and ownership issues

I am a single (and only) user on a 32bit Windows 7 SP1 Professional desktop and am trying to install updated WiFi drivers and "Access is denied."

There are eight drive partitions and all account permissions cascade to subfolders and files. This configuration appears on both the source update files and the target files to be replaced.

System Full control
Administrators Full control
ineuw Full control
users limited to read and write

The owner on all drives is the SYSTEM account. There are no other accounts used and other accounts names were deleted because several months ago I ran into a permission problem and this was the only way I could resolve it.

Perhaps someone can tell me what I am doing wrong.

This is the whoami /all info:

Are you trying to install the drivers as administrator.

I'm no privilege expert, so I can help you with that.

Layback Bear, your reply is unclear. Can you or can you not help? Am an administrator and I am using the update option of the device manager "update drivers". The drivers don't come with an installation program. They are just the .cat, .dll, and the .inf files. I am not using the terminal to install, because I wouldn't know how.

Well sorry I bothered you.
I have no way of knowing what account (User) you were logged in as.

Have a nice day.

I am sorry to that you left, but my posts clearly state that I am an Administrator. I think that I provided all the necessary info.
P.S: There is only one user; me.
