Windows 7: Applications dont have permission to access appdata folder

Applications dont have permission to access appdata folder

I ended up getting infected with some stupid virus and had to ultimately restore to a previous saved instance of my OS.

Since then my Owner/administrator account seems to have problems running applications and applying the appropriate permissions. Any apps that use the C:\Users\Owner\AppData folder no longer have permission to save files to this location and I cant for the life of me figure out how to fix it.

Any help?

Welcome to SevenForums kinitex.
If you used system Restore you probably restore the virus too. run MalwareBytes AND Super AntiSpyware (links to both in my sig). Update and runn FULL scans. Post back results. Then install and use Microsoft Security Essentials, link in sig too.
