I have followed your instructions above, and the first part, adding myself
Administrator group helped me very much.
However, when I try the second part, I get as far as :
Go to that folder, left click>>Properties>>Security tab>>
but no further - I then get an error dialog box when I click on "Edit" -
the error box says:
"Can't open access control editor. Invalid syntax" and has an OK button.
Any ideas how to fix that, or how to get around it?
