I recently made a clean install of Windows 7. Originally all seemed to be fine, but now a few days later I realized both my HDDs and most folders seemed to be locked in a Read Only-state. I simply can't do anything to certain folders and files; whenever I attempt to do change something, anything, I get a dialogue saying:
You need permission to perform this action
You require permission from COMPUTERNAME-PC\USERNAME to make changes to this folder
There is only one user account on this computer and that's mine. There should be no limitations to privilegies to the account.
I have searched around for a while, tried unlocking the hidden administrator account but still can't delete the file. I tried taking ownership, as described in various articles users on this site and others have linked to, of the folders and files with no success.
I'm all out of ideas, further research only brings me the same solutions as I've already seen, tried and failed with. Could this perhaps have been caused by 3rd party software? I did install the evaluation copy of BitDefender
I'm getting so annoyed, why isn't there an option to install an OS with no accounts, no limitations, no annoying bugs, hidden folders, uneccesarily long folder structures and so on and so forth.
Thanks in advance,
