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.

I can't open up internet explorer.  How do I give permission to C drive ?
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
