    Angry Help - Access Privileges

    I have a important document on my now broken CPU. We replaced the old CPU and put the hardrive in the new CPU. We found the document I needed and whenever we try to open it it says we do not have access privileges and we have to contact the administrator. We are signed in as the administrator though. What should we do? We need the document ASAP! Should we just call a professional??

    it sounds like you need to take permission back on the file. Follow these steps. http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/wind...ers-vista.html

    Hope this works for you. JR

    Well try the following:

    Right click on the file -> Properties -> Security -> Advanced -> Owner -> Edit -> Other Users or groups -> In the new window -> Advanced -> Find Now

    Now select your account on the current machine OK -> Apply -> Apply & try it should give you ownership over the file.

    Edit: The link johnny posted is the same with screenshots, so try it

    Glad to be of help.

    Thanks iMav for doing that. I was running around after the kids and didn't have time to write a description.
