Can not use my admin privileges

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
1) I created an administrator profile (it is disabled by default) to make some changes to my folders.

2) After PC restart i logged in as admin and made changes to some folders - so that in my normal "nick name" account mode i could not open them as if i was a guest.

3) To my huge disappointment i, logged in as an admin, also could not open the folder after i made changes. I had the access to modify security details, but what i wanted is the difference between the admin and the default user.

How can i permit access to other accounts, without penalizing myself?
It seems that Windows is unable to do that!

As an admin i can disable some folder access commands like read of modify to other accounts, but when i do that, these restrictions apply to my admin account as well - this is BS, i do not want that!!!

Do you understand what is it that i wish? If it is hard to understand, i will post a picture.

Implicit Deny and Least Privilege.

1. If an account or group is not explicitly allowed, it is implicitly denied.
2. Make sure the "admin" account is only part of the administrators group and no other.
