Windows 7: Permissions, I am really struggling

Permissions, I am really struggling

Background I have been using VS Revo Pro to uninstall a number of unwanted programs, and in the process noticed that saving of neither a registry backup nor a system restore point was happening.

I contacted VS Revo, and it was suggested that the problem could lay with the permissions settings. The picture taken of the relative properties seems to show that full permissions are granted. Am I perhaps wrong?

The advice about permissions in the Windows 7 system really confuses me, when it talks of objects in editing permissions too. I cannot grasp what the objects wold be in a case like mine, if indeed they are relevant.

I should. please, ask for as much help as I can get on this confusing matter.

What happened when you right-clicked on Revo icon and Ran As Administrator?

I was not using the elevated command prompt, and had never previously,nor had I met such behaviour. However when I used runa as administrator just now the backup appaered to have started. I think I'll load a couple of unnecessary program and experiment to make sure running elevated is indeed the cure.

Report later!
