Windows 7 Upgrade aftermath: Getting permission to do stuff
Posted on 2010-11-18
I'm in my next phase of a Windows 7 upgrade. In trying to reinstall applications, locate and attach their data files, install an add in and even just crop an image in an application, over and over I've been stopped because I don't have the privileges, the file is locked, and so forth.
I've been able to stumble through a little bit of this, but it is pain on top of the hassles I've already endured in just getting Win 7 installed.
I am the administrator. I seem to have permission to do most anything, yet I don't.
This is my home office computer and I'm the only person to ever use it. Is there a way to change one setting somewhere and let me live in peace?
