post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
well i have recently tried to change the themes on vista and in the process found that i no longer have full access to my computers folders (especially c:/windows)

i cant change it ass i need full access in order to give myself full access

so erm waht do i do??

--------------------------------
What i've tried so far

- safemode
- making a new admin account

--------------------------------
What might have caused it

-the clock being set to 2089 a few weeks ago (i have set it back)

Activate the admin account and use it to restore regular account full permissions. to activate the admin account run cmd.exe as administrator then type "Net user administrator /active:yes" without quotes. Log out of your account then log in to the admin account. Then when your done with the admin account open cmd.exe again and type "Net user administrator /active:no".

You still can't change permissions even when logged in to the admin account?

Have you done a virus scan ?
post #10 of 13
Did you disable the login password through the Users menu?

I know there are certain functions that you cannot perform if you do not have that password active. Vista thinks that because it's disabled anybody can get in there and mess around so it disables certain functions until you set it back up.
