I went into my unlocked super-admin, and I can't even access some files. Explain that, and put the blame on me

and for your info. I did nothing with regards to setting permissioins that would cause this.

I said I will go into Hidden Admin, because I don't want to set icons and various files to "everyone" all the time. And I do know about setting child permissions.

So unless you want to help me figure out why or what I can do to remedy it.

Maybe throw a link with a GOOD tutorial on how I can fix this instead of blasting me.

SERIOUSLY

No one is blasting you. Logicearth addressed his reply to people and I agreed with his statement.

The hidden administrator account is still a limited administrator account by design. There is no super admin account built into Win 7 that gives you the same total control as the admin account in XP. This is part of Win 7's security.

You can do everything in Win 7 as an admin that you can do in XP; but some things are not as easy nor as straight forward by design. You have to learn the system and learn about what you are trying to do. Changing permissions can be tricky and lead to some undesired results.

Well why would they do that. It creates more problems than its worth.

Can you tell me how to get rid of locks on icons some other way then.


without going into permissions, or other account.

I finally deleted my user account and just used the unlocked admin.

So if it ( hidden admin account) has no raised elevation over other admin accounts, what in the f*ck is the purpose of hiding the god dam thing?

This kinda crap is what confuses alot of people. I never got locked out of anything on XP. And as a matter of fact, never like this on Vista either.


Confusing people, then not giving them ways to fix it, that's a brilliant way to design a OS.

Telling me how I can use my own f**king files. This is crap.

If you think Windows Explorer is bad, you haven't seen the default file manager in Ubuntu 10.04 (It does have Tabs though).

I do hate the way that Windows Explorer randomly scrolls the Navigation pane. When I try to save a file (say a picture from the Internet) , I click on the folder that I want and then Windows Explorer scrolls the view to to the previous folder. If I want to be able to navigate to a folder, I have to wait for about 5 seconds, so that Windows Explorer has time to finish d***ing around.

Not on my machine. I tried to copy the User Accounts folder to another location, so that I could play around. When I checked the copy, most of the files were missing!

I also want to know what use the Hidden Admin Account is.
What I do when Windows won't cooperate is use a Ubuntu Live CD to copy the files.
NEVER replace "Trusted Installer" with any other category.

Hmm, I think that the libraries are very handy. They allow me to group files/folders from all over my disks/partitions without moving them. I even have Vista folders in my Win7 libraries. Thus they are always in sync.

So I guess I will just have to Help members instead.

I may have to go into Super-admin and set all permissions from there, maybe that'll end this.
Seriously people, altering permissions without knowing what you are doing is a really bad idea.
+1 +2 +3 +4 +5 +6 +7 +8 +9 and +10!!!! People please read this! I use a "Standard User" Account all day long without any issues or problems. You DO NOT need to take permission of everything. Windows 7 works correctly out of the box. 99% of the time it is the USER that does not understand how junction points or permissions work!

No Windows 7 works correctly you just have not taken the time to learn it.
