Hi, I am trying to run a program that I just installed on my XP Pro SP2 computer but when I double-click the exe I'm getting denied access. The user account that I am using, (my name) is an administrator account. The file and parent folder are both marked as "read only" but I can't change them. I have "Full Control" permissions.

Help please...Thanks!

Hello,

What is the name of the program that is causing the problem? Have you tried to re install the program?
Regards,

Alan.

if you are good with computers try this

go to start then run
in that prompt type in cmd
in the window that pops up(cmd) navigate to the folder that the file is in.
by using this command cd "C:\Program Files\appfolder" where "appfolder" is the folder name of the app
finally type in attrib -r appname.exe where appname is the name of the exe.

finally exit the prompt by typing in [i]exit


then try running the exe
i hope that works

EDIT: you can also try taking ownership of this file

All-in-one Spy. Checking up on the kid's activities :thumbsup:

I did try removing the read only attribute from a command prompt but that didn't work.

I tried logging on using the default administrator account and that account cannot access the file either. Same thing with two other admin accounts on the PC. I even tried using the default admin account to give myself full control of the entire C:\ drive and that didn't work either.

I'll try a reinstall.


Thanks for the suggestions!
