Hmm... give it a try in Safe Mode? Try disabling UAC first too.

I will do that. I just tried this and it didn't work.

Safe mode was a no-go. Even with UAC disabled.

What's the error you're getting when you go to replace the file?

Try this:
Quote:
1) Click the start menu and open Computer.



2)Click on the drive that contains the file you are trying to move/delete.



3)Right click on the folder that contains the file you are trying to move/delete. Select Properties.



4)Click on the Security tab.



5)Under the box containing the permissions each entity has, click on Advanced.



6)In the new Advanced Security Settings window, click on the Owner tab.



7)In the owner tab, click on the Edit button.



8)In the new window, you should see "Current Owner:" over a box with (most likely) trusted installer in it. Under that you should see "Change Owner to:" followed by a short list of possible owners.



8a)If you see your username (listed as [Name] (My-PC\[Name])), then click on it and check the box below the Other users which says "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects".



8b)If you do not see your username, click on the "Other users" button. From there, enter your username into the space provided and click Check names. The username you typed should then get underlined and expanded. Then click Ok. From there follow step 8a.



9)Click Apply.



10) Now close all windows opened from the properties window and close the properties window. Reopen it, and under the box entitled "Group or user names," Click Edit.



11)If you do not see your username, as chances are you won't, click add. In the add window, type your username into the given space and click the Check names button. Your username should become underlined and expanded to include the computer name. Then click OK. (I typically just click OK but if for some reason it doesn't work for you, at least you will know at what step you were tripped up.)



12)Upon clicking OK, the Select User or Groups window will close and you should see you username has joined the other names in the Group or User names box. Click it, and then check the "Full Control" check box lower down. This will grant you complete permissions for everything except "Special Permissions". This is normal, and so far I have not found a way to check that checkbox but it hasn't presented itself as a problem yet so I wouldn't worry about it.



13)Click Apply. You should see a window pop up saying "Changing Permissions" and file locations rapidly going by. This is normal and it means that the folder, subfolders, and files are having their permissions changed.

That's the process I already mentioned that I tried. Didn't work. frown.gif

Try the following.

Seems a little intrusive. I don't like adding things to my registry. frown.gif

Unfortunately, permissions and TrustedInstaller in Windows 7 are pretty ridiculous, so there are VERY few ways to actually get around this. One way is the way you tried, and another way is the method I linked previously.

If none of these methods work, or you prefer not to try the registry method, I'm not sure what else I can personally recommend doing.

Would you say this method is safe?
