  1. Firstly what is the file you are copying, an unknown .exe file is not a good idea to be transfering to a new operating system, it may or may not be compatible, as we don't know what it is.
    If you know what this file does and that it's safe to use, right click and choose run as administrator.
  2. Jonmor68, It is a game called Assassins creed and it is totally safe. The problem is that the file is in the usb, and it is impossible to run or to install the game from the usb right ? so the only choise I got is to copy it into the desktop or any Local Disk in the computer and here the issue comes. I can't copy it ! It says : you need to provide adminstator premmesion. well .. I am the adminstator!.

    Can anyone help me please because this problem will annoy me in the future.

    I thin is UAC that is doing it. Shut it down during the copy process.
  5. UAC turned off. Windows Defender TURNED OFF I have taken ownership of all the files and folders on the drive.

    YET I still can not copy a file without clicking continue to the you need to provide admin yadda yadda crap useless windows and OTHER programs do not even get this option (example I can not save anything to my external drive I have to save to desktop and then manually copy the files and click continue to this stupid freaking windows.

    how do I completely TURN OFF this functionality in windows. 100% off.
