Folder access after Vista updates
I recently bought a HP notebook with Windows vista home edition. I dowloaded
Windows updates and even though I didn't change any of my account name or
password (I'm the administrator), I'm denied access on more than half the
folders. I tried changing the ownership on a great deal of folders but even
though I checked the otions for the subfolders, it didn't work. It's
impossible to change each folders owner, manualy, but even if I do how do I
know that the next time I download updates I won't have the same problem?

Re: Folder access after Vista updates
This newsgroup deals with issues/concerns/questions involving the
Microsoft Update Catalog.
Please post this to the Windows Update NG:

http://www.microsoft.com/communities...&lang=en&cr=US

Did you attempt to uninstall the update to see if the Permissions issue
was resolved ?
You could create a new User account and see if the Permissions issue is
present there so that you can rule out User account corruption as being
the cause of the issue.

If find that's the case, look to the installed antivirus/security suite
as the cause of the Permissions issue.
