I created a folder called temp on my C drive, Now I can't get access, I am the admin on my computer. I even tried using the built in Admin account but still no access. Any idea how to get in to it, or even delete it.

Can you take ownership of it? (Right-click/Properties/Security/Advanced/Owner.)

No, i can't. it said "unable to display current owner" and when i click on a user name to change it nothing happens.

You did click the "Edit" button?

Yeah I did, and it said I don't have access when I tried to apply the changes in the window.

I just did a reboot, and I now have access. I couldn't restart before because I was rendering an animation in Maya, and i really didn't think a reboot would have worked anyways. It must have been some weird glitch or something, that was fixed with a reboot.

Thanks for your help anyways.
