Did you run the command i posted as administrator or did you click "fix it" on the MS site?

I ran the command you posted as Admin.

EDIT: I tried the fix-it link, and it gave the message, "This Fix-it does not apply to your system".

Odd because it is looking for an XP directory, anyway after you restarted does the problem still exist?

After a restart, problem still exists.

Here is a screenshot of folder permissions for Administrators, unlike general C:\ permissions, all folder permissions have no control.

Clearly the permissions are messed up. If running command prompt as administrator and applying the command i posted does not fix the problem the only thing i can think of is a reinstall.

I'll try to install apache again. I'll see if i'm able to get the config file edited / if it will allow me to do so.
