I just recently re-installed Windows 7 Ultimate, and I'm having that damn security issue "Destination Folder Access Denied" "You'll need to provide administrator permission to copy to this folder" and unable to save text files.
I've been going at this for hours and hours, I can't find a fix!
I've tried editing Properties > Security > Advanced Permissions and Ownerships, don't work. I've tried the "Take Ownership" command. Still doesn't work.
I've been through a few re-installs because I've just been hammering out as much as I can do.
Basically I want full control like the systems hidden administrator account!

Please, PLEASE someone help me!

Log in with an account that has admin rights (like the administrator account), and put your user into the local admins group.

I hopped over to the systems Administrator account to do this. I seem to already be in the Administrators group. It's showing Members: Me and Administrators.

I usually find disabling the User Account Control helps a lot.

Hi

Is this a re install over the existing Windows or a full format C: & re install ?

Is problem with files on C: or other partitions D: etc ?

Did you re install Windows because of similar problems ?

Have you checked your hard drive with manufacturers diagnostics disk ?
