OK - still having a bad (worse!) day...

I have taken full ownership of the USERS... But the file that is breaking things for me and I cannot delete is in program files/Mozilla thunderbird!

SOOooo i woudl liek to take ownership of program files

But access is denied if you try to do that - again I searched forum on this, got zilch.

VISTA Business BTW.

right click on folder, properties, security, edit - add yourself there and give yourself full rights, then click on advanced, owner, click edit select your name and tick replace permissions on subcontainers and objects.

But then again you dont trust my advise do you

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
