Windows 7: permissions

Windows 7

When I first installed Windows 7 a few days back, I didnt do anything to change any permissions, but I have had several occurances where Windows 7 stops me from installing or even startring a program.

I tried to install an image of the message here, but Im not sure how that is done.

Ok, I have put myself in a real mess here. I changed all the default permissions on the "Users" folder, I made my account Owner. I did all this because HomeGroup wasn't working, so I thought I would try sharing via permissions. Is there a way to get the default permissions back for the Users...
