Acces Denied to C:\...documents

  1. There is a folder called "Documents" in My Documents folder of the My Computer folder and I am not able to access it. It was modified on the 24th of August 2007.

    Of course that wouldn't bother me at all except for the fact that FEAR almost didn't uninstall (I had to manually delete the dir) and another game will not install because it cannot write a document to the folder.

    I have tried to get "permission" to access the folder but I am already an administrator and I don't have some of the options that are required.

    If anyone has ANY idea that would be great. As usual, Microsoft has no idea what the heck is wrong.

    To take full control
    1. Right click file, select properties.
    2. Hit security tab, then click on your username.
    3. Hit edit, then click on your username on the pop up screen
    4. Check the box marked "full control" under the allow heading
    5. OK out of all dialogue boxes

    Now you have ownership and full control of that file.

    Regards Jase
