After re installing WinXP using restore from the install CD I cannot change any folder from "read only" to normal, after unchecking the "read only" checkbox and right click then choose properties on the same folder the "read only" is checked again.

I guess it have something to do with accound permissions but
I'm the administrator and I have full acces to the system.

Any ideas???

BTW: That users account system is useless if you're the only user, can I get rid of it??

Why don´t you try logging on as the real administrator?

real administrator means being logged on with the verbatim title "Administrator," not just a user with administration rights. Is that how you log on?

Thanks AlecStaar, I did what you said.

My profile (user) SPYRO is part of the administrator account already.

I have two users on this group:

Administrator
SPYRO



Any ideas? All the folders still "read only" and cannot be changed.

Mhhh...

I have unchecked "Use simple file sharing" and I cannot see any "permission" tab when right clicking a folder and selecting properties.

:(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
