Yes, I see your problem. If you go to the Programs File the top folder,
you can't do anything there at that point too for account permissions.
It looks like that folder and some folders within the folder are in a
total locked out and total protected user permissions state when it
comes to user permission modification, even for user/admin.
You could try to enable the hidden Admin Account on Vista, which is
suppose to have Full Admin rights permission on Vista like it does on XP.
You can enable it and see if that Admin account has the power. You
should read first before you do it.
Get back to me on this and let me know what happened? Can you even add a
new account or modify an existing account on a protected folder?
