I am also having a problem with the administrative permission function. I am
the administrator and the only user of my brand new computer.
-Whenever I try to download anything to my documents folder (c:\users\owner)
I get the same "you don't have permission, contact your administrator"
message that other threads mention.
-I can download to users/public and users/nex (computer was a floor model,
this was the store's username)
-I can download to desktop/username but not desktop/username/documents
-whenever I try to modify a picture or document in c:\users\owner folder I
am informed that the file is read-only
-when I check the properties of the offending folder, read-only is marked
with a blue square
-un-setting read only to the folder or individual files does not stick, when
I close and reopen properties I get the blue square again
-I can delete and move files to and from users/owner/, I download things now
by downloading them into other folders and then moving them
-I can run programs from c:\users\owner, for example I installed quicktime
-I can create folders in users\owner but can create nothing else
-I have added full control for administrator in permissions
-I have changed the ownership to administrator
-I can make things work properly only when I turn off UAC
-I am under the assumption that the folder c:\users\owner\documents and
start menu>documents aka desktop\username\documents generally lead to the
same location and have the same properties, and everything I have mentioned
applies to both unless otherwise specified
It seems like most posts err on the side of too little information, I hope
this is sufficient...
