That's why we are here! If you're not sure about a certain procedure STOP! And ask. Remember, there is no such thing as a dumb question..

Alas, after spending quite a while running "Windows Repair (All in One)" I continue to have an error box pop up saying,
"Access to C:\Users|FirstShirt\AppData\ocal\. . . \data\cachedata.dat was denied."


Also, when I Right Click on C:\ drive in My Computer and navigate to the Security tab here is the result:

"Permissions for Gateway (C"

"Special Permissions" The checkbox for Allow or Deny are ghosted out and not selectable.


Of course, when I ran the maintenance program I followed it to the Letter of the Law. I powered down the laptop and removed the battery, etc., ran MBAM before I started, and adhered to all the recommended items within the program.

P.S., I read the link explaining how to attach and embed a JPG photo via the Paperclip icon, but it didn't seem to cooperate with me. I had picture illustrations of the two errors above... The largest one was a mere 94kb.

Another way to do that is to hit the Print Screen (prt sc) key to take a shot of the error. Then open paint past it in and save it. Go back to your post click Go Advanced and click Manage Attachments. Browse to the image file and select it and click Upload.

Take a shot of your C:\drive And show the Folder Options "View tab" as well in the screen shot. It should look something like this.

I've just had a "Well, Duh" moment.

Your request for the screenshot turn on the light in my foggy mind and I made the proper selection, "Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives."

Thanks, Lance1

Write permissions. . . When I open My Computers and Right Click on C:\ drive, then select "Security" tab the Special Permissions check box is Ghosted Out. I can not select it.
