I should hope you're NOT speaking to either DARK41 or myself "Mr. 1 Post" - are you???

Everyone, it is appropriate on a forum when your topic is not specifically related, to start a new thread of your own. So, unless you are having issues with permissions in both your OS's file system as well as you registry and are adept enough to understand, basic permissions, user accounts, etc. and still find it impossible to manipulate files, install particular software, continually end up with returned errors regarding regular application or system operation not having permission to access the registry, and all manner of other out of character permission issues that only apply to Windows 7, START A NEW THREAD AND DO NOT POST IN THIS ONE!

Otherwise, feel free to contribute, ask questions, etc. This thread could likely be condensed to one page or so that is ON TOPIC instead of five. Many here boast of their prowess with computers, the Internet, Windows 7 etc.; please apply all of that intellect as well when deciding on whether or not it is appropriate to start a new thread about your topic, read a thread learn from it and pass it by, etc. etc. Come on, if everyone has all of this intellect with computers, where is the forum decorum?

But the problem we're (Filmguy and myself) describing wouldn't be effected in any way, shape, or form by which account you use to log on. I could take ownership of these files/folders as administrator and still do nothing more than read them.
I could not have said it better myself. Cheers!

I suspect that Filmguy didn't understand how anyone could read the entire thread, and then ask the questions that you just did, and offer what's already been offered before as a solution. Its baffling to me that you could have read the entire thread and then take 2 steps backwards with your response, so I'll assume for your benefit that you haven't read it all.

At any rate, everything in your post has been addressed/answered previously.

Since you want to learn, I also suspect you'll learn a lot more if you read entire threads. People will appreciate your advice too when its evident that you're providing new information rather than stating the same things others have said numerous times. But hey, just a suggestion.

Whatever... Grow up. Besides the root of an MS-DOS -Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2 is the top of the file structure of any given partition. I can CHMOD my way to big old "/" on one of our Linux systems and that has nothing to do with any of this. If you dual-boot, run your commands, play and learn, perhaps you can educate a number of people on how to do things that should never need done "the hard way..."

I am out of here. Last post here. I need a new leisure time activity, for DARK41 posted this was his; I have known for some years now posting or interacting on forums is not mine. I read continually, but contributing always seems to bring out folks such as you with nothing of value to say and make all of this look like a competition and trivialize and diminish what everyone's original intentions are or should be.

DARK,you know test mode has not worked in years (well at least not in server... I am in Test Mode now and unsigned drivers are a NO-GO..) So since that filter driver looked interesting I am going to officially sign it as MS certified and if I ever find an excellent use for it I'll PM you. It would not have helped me but, I am confident it would have taken care of the trouble your better-half had... I'll try and find time to go through the signing process pretty soon; if you need it for some reason, PM me. I am going to leave Seven Forums as a poster, but I will set my PM box to email with any Personal Messages I might receive. I'm off; in quest of something like you have (forum posting as leisure-time activity...) I certainly need find some sort of leisure-time activity as I am getting burned out on so many things these days and enduring posts like CALEMUS's just are not it for me!

Filmguy,
I got tired of the boot to safe mode thing to allow unsigned drivers, so downloaded a little program called dseo13b.exe, which of course turns test mode off/on. Seems to work pretty well for me, but I havent used it since last format and installing my sound card drivers. I envy your patience to manually sign drivers, as I could never be bothered. My opinion is that this is another safety feature of Win 7 that might save lesser experienced users to some degree, but make life miserable for those of us who like to think we know what we're doing.

Its a shame that you're not going to post anymore as you have a lot to offer these venues. Myself, I don't take anything these posters say personally, and take most of it with a grain of salt. I imagine that being admin for Napster and SlavaNap chat rooms for roughly 10 years (back in the day) helped to make me immune to such behaviour.

Little things like the "Ubuntu" in the sig tell me a lot about a person. Normally I'd say something like "a real man would use Slackware 7!" The sad part is that most Ubuntu users wouldn't understand the humor in that. But since I don't want to insult anyone I'll leave it at that. (Or did I just do so? hmmm) And then there's the difinition of "root" in Australia, which has nothing to do with computers. I'll shut up now as I've strayed far enough off-topic.

Yeah, Dark these days with the weight of the World on me sometimes I get a bit well too bent about things that simply do not matter. I have DSEO here somewhere as well (or something like it...) It is quick and dirty and works well. I (had) not had the need to use it when I just started forging signatures (well the MS way...) and found out after my post that without further investigation, the kits are NOT x64 compatible for some reason. I may just have the wrong releases, or perhaps it hates Enterprise OS's or Server 08 R2; don't know...

I would tend to think without running the insult route too heavily, that individual I got all bent over because he simply had no idea what he was taking about, not only has no idea what Slackware is, but as well would last a few seconds with a command-line only system...

Cheer Sir!

Well i have also problem with permisions. I have changed the default location of Myfiles(My Pictures, Music etc) to my 2nd drive. The problems appears when i reinstall windows i can't access some files. Changing permissions sometimes works but somotimes have to change each subfolder to change all permissions. What i found as solution is to change the permissions of my 2nd drive where myfiles are stored to everyone and full access. It seems to work.

That is normal and expected. Those file belonged to the old user on your old windows install.

Unless you used the file and settings transfer wizard to transfer your old user account and all his "my files", then the new window sinstall is a new user (Even if the name is the same).

At that point youwimply retake ownership of the old users files with your new user account and all is well.

Now...

Someone mentioned "Documents and Settings"...

This is NOT a real folder on Windows 7 The reason you can't directly manipulate or delete files from that folder is that it really isn't there and neither are the files.

The files are actually located in your user's account folder and the documents and settings folder is anothing more than a link to a folder in your c:\Users\<username> folder. It is a mechanism that allows backwards compatibility with POORLY WRITTEN programs (Some from MS itself). You can access the files FROM those programs but you must navigate to your users folder to get direct access to them where you CAN delete them if you want as your normal user. "Documents and Settings" doesn't even exist on most W7 machines, it doesn't exist on any of my machines. It's only created by the OS in the presense of one of the afore mentioned poorly writtten programs...

As for demanding "Full control" of your machine. I put it to you (whoever it applies to) that until you know exactly how your machine works, you should NOT have full control over it. Further; Merely making the satatement that you deserve full control means you DON'T know how the machine works and therefor do not deserve full control over it. I DO know how my machine works and I KNOW that my normal user account and even the admin account do not deserve default permissions to do anything they want (Though admin CAN change those permissions if they FULLY understand the consequences of doing so, then putting thm back when done with their immediate work)
