Yeah thanks it fixed. Yeah please, if we can do it step by step that would be very helpful.

For example, my Admin account is called Namenone and the standard user account is called homeaccount

OK step by step.

Read the section on giving permissions. Dont do anything just read it and make sure you understand. You can go through the motions on your screen without changing any of the settings, just to be sure what you see on the screen is the same as you see in the instructions.
Windows 7 Take Ownership & Grant Permissions to Access Files & Folder

Lets not rush, we can finish tomorrow, if that is necessary. My satisfaction comes from getting this right.

Ok you mentioned that before, you seem to think that by changing permissions for others it effects you, too. Let me read over the document that I gave you and try to explain it so we do not need system restore, again.

User Permissions Standard user-capture.png

Whats your name, Im Richard. Do you see this picture. One section gives the accounts and others (system) that can have permission. You do one at a time. Give each account permissiion. When you get to your account you give all the permissions. You understand this. Go find that screen on your computer and make sure they look the same.. Dont do anything yet.

Hi Again. Now, you read the Tutorial and saw the actual screen. Tell me the procedure when you reach the screen where you limit the permission for the other account.
