Can't access my folders after installing windows updates (Oct 20,
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 updatew I won't have the same problem?

I haven't heard about this happening before, but do a System Restore to
before the updates.

Then set your Windows Updates from Automatic to "download and notify". Then
do a custom install of the updates, selecting only one at a time and
testing after each update to see if in fact one of the updates is causing
your issue.

You might also like to post this in the Windows Update newsgroup where
you'll get the attention of the WU experts. One of them may have seen this
behavior before.

I would also suggest that you review Windows Update > select 'view update
history... view the history for the date(s) you download/installed and
possibly capture the log. Searching Microsoft based on the KB #, you should
be able to review any unintended consequences that are noted.

Definitions for Windows Defender or Security Updates would be my 1st choice
for research and/or review.

So, you are saying that you changed ownership on folders so that you could
own them as admin, and after you ran the update, the ownership was changed to
something else?

Was ownership changed to TrustedInstaller?

So maybe Vista or Windows Update set folders to the the TrustedInstaller
account, so that Windows Update would be successful.

Oh, quite strange.
I've never met that before. It does not make any sense.
