Trouble Accessing Unwanted Folders

Hello everyone,

I am having trouble with deleting some leftover folders from a roll back to Windows 7 from Windpws 10. When I open the properies and select the security tab I cannot select the edit button to change the permissions because instead the "advanced security settings" page pops up. Can anyone help with this?

Welcome back to win 7, still the best Windows.
A roll back to Windows 7 from Windows 10 normally gives a lot of issues.
My suggestion is:
- Do a Disk Cleanup (%windir%\system32\cleanmgr.exe)
- Download and run CCleaner
- Do a Repair Install. For the updates my suggestion is to use Simplix (single file with all updates but without the telemetry)
