This is my own PC and I am only user.  Suddenly Win 10 is telling me I cannot access my own files.  Particular file in questions is a *.css style sheet I created with Web Easy Professional 10.  Have done this many times on same PC w/o problems.  Windows 10 iis telling me that I have to have Read permissions and Windows 10 is "Unable to display current owner.

Again this is my own PC and I am only user.
