Windows 7 Security Issues
Posted on 2012-03-27
We just started to deploy some windows 7 64 bit PC's into our domain. They seem to be working very well with a few exceptions. Our biggest issue is the security that Microsoft has put onto this OS. I can open files and applications no problem as administrator but then I switch to the user and WHAM it is blocked. I have read a ton of forums with little success. With Windows XP I would basically just give everyone full permissions on the C drive which would then give access to all sub directories and files. Now you cant do that. Every other folder it basically halts and says you do not have permissions to perform that action. So I found a registry addition on a forum that I ran which gives the ability to take ownership. I did this and it works partially. After running the take ownership on a folder some sub folders are changed and others still are not. So I try to do it manually. Again some go through and others do not. I just dont know where to go from here. I have done a lot of research and just cant find a decent answer to fix this. I mean I would even purchase an application if it would help with this problem. One of my big problems right now is that I cant even write a temp file to the C drive.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
