hi, im running a dual-boot system....xp + vista

when i was on vista, i wanted to look at some stuff which were in the 'my docs' section of xp. when i tried accessing it via vista, it said smth about permissions, so i "got" the permission.

now i when i try to access the folder on xp, i get "access denied" msg.

how can i get the permission bk so i can view the my docs stuff on xp?

Hi funnytim.

1) Download and run ERUNT. This creates a complete Registry backup and also proves a program to automatically restore the Registry should you need to.


2) Create a new file using Notepad (cut & paste the enclosed text):

File: "Show Security Tab in XP Home.reg" Do not include the quotes, of course.
------------------------ Do not include the dashed lines, of course.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; This tweak will show the security tab in XP Home without rebooting into Safe Mode.
; Use the "Hide Security tab.reg" file to hide this tab again.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Option]
"OptionValue"=dword:00000001
------------------------


3) Create another new file using Notepad (cut & paste the enclosed text):

File: "Hide Security Tab in XP Home.reg" Do not include the quotes, of course.
------------------------ Do not include the dashed lines, of course.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; This will undo the tweak in "Show Registry tab in XP Home.reg".

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Option]
"OptionValue"=dword:00000000
-----------------------


4) After saving the files, in Explorer right-click either file and select Merge.
Affirm the popup question.
Close the new information popup.
