Hello all expert,

My computer is working very well yesterday.  Unfortunately, everything is stop working and I can not open any file from C Drive.  I try to create a test file and save it into C Drive and I receive a message says: " you do not have permission to C"  Which is not correct because i'm an administrator of my computer and I have full access to local C:  Would anyone please explain for me what is going on?  I would very appreciate it.  Thanks

If you're logged on as Administrator and you still have no access, right click your C drive and select Properties.  Then, click the Security tab and add your account to the list of allowed users.

Some questions:
1) Was the security tab even listed under propertied?  What account did you add if it was?
2) Is your operating system is stored on your C drive?  Do programs run properly?
3) Do you remember doing anything different between yesterday and today?

You might try scanning for viruses.

Yesterday everything is running very smooth.  I turn off my machine as i usually did....This  morning I turn my computer on to do some work.  Guess what  I just can't open up Internet Explorer and Internet Browser.  I ran virus scan and there is no virus found, I download ad-ware to delete all the object and cookies files.  I also run defragment and analyst the systems.  Eventually, nothing work for me.

1.
With my C drive I have add the following users:

Administrators
Authentication Users
Creator owner
Users
my login user  admin
Service
System

2.  Yes, OS is on my C drive
3. I have not install or delete or change anything on my system lately.

This is very weird stuff i have not seeing before.  I hope that you can help me with some other solution.  Thanks

You might try adding "Everyone" to your list under security, make sure "Full Access" is checked.

If that doesn't work, you may need to take ownership:

try running a checkdisk thorough and when asked if you want to run it on the next reboot say yes.  If you can't run it from within the GUI then boot off the Windows setup CD and choose repair and recovery console.  then type chkdsk /? and run chkdsk with the appropriate switches for a thorough check
