Permissions error message trying to access control panel!??
I am the admin on our computer. I just tried to access the control panel and
got this error message:

Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file; you may not have
the appropriate permissions to access the item.

Has this happened to anyone? I can't access the control panel at all.

It has, many times, I have tried to transfer inheritance etc and still not
having any luck. I can even get into my own personal pics I'm not sure if I
even have permission to use my own computer. LOL. there are many things
wrong with Vista, can't install up dates, sound card won't play sounds at
intermittent times. yadayadayada

Have you recently installed or updated any drivers? I'd bet that a Control
Panel applet is either corrupt or incompatible with Vista and causing this
error.

I am the andmin; the only account on the machine, but when I try to save
files under subdirectory "users" it tells me that must have admin permission.
But, I am the admin?
