HELP! I cant access (C:)Documents and Settings/All Users/Documents!?
Hiya – For some reason I’ve been unable to access this folder but can access my own documents (C:)Documents and Settings/Paula. Its been like this a good few months but has only become a problem when I tried to install software that had to go to that specific folder.
The laptop has been rebooted several times and I am the only user of it. I’ve used registry cleaners etc but nothing seems to work so if anyone has any suggestions, I’d really appreciate it.
Thanks for reading – Paula
Do you have administrator rights? If not this is meant to happen. If you do, you can go to the docs and settings folder, right click the all users folder and set the security permissions on it and all subfolders to full control for everyone, click the include subfolders setting. If you can not do this normally, re-start in safe mode (continuously pressing F8 while booting) and try again, this may unlock files locked in normal mode.
