Windows 7: How to copy file to system32 folder

01 Dec 2013   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

Hi, I am getting Access Denied using the robocopy trick above and copy/pasting as an Admin. (My reason for putting files in System32 is that Windows Update isn't working, nor does the MS WU Fixit, so I'm copying delta files from a working Win7 machine.)

Somehow machine\Administrators has 'no' access while machine\users has read, list, execute. I assume that this is a policy from the malware that broke WU to prevent fixes. Administrator does not have the permission to take control of System32.

Cannot copy files to System32

Hi, I tried the robocopy command above but still get "Access Denied". Same for copy/paste as an Admin. I discovered that machine\Administrators on my machine have 'no' access to System32 (no checks in security dialog) but machine\users have Read, List, and Execute.

Why do I need access: Malware has replaced some of the DLLs for Windows Update which the Microsoft WU Fixit utility cannot restore.
