Apologies if this has been covered before, but I want to change the permissions in a couple of processes in task manager.
I have done the old right click/ set priority/ high. I then get the message "The operation could not be completed. Access is denied"
I have also tried going through services (in Admin tools) to change security settings/ users for those programs but it would not let me.
The account is an administrator account (quadruple checked) and I have selected the check box for show processes for all users.
I haven't tried writing a new script as it looks very complicated and I don't want to stuff it up.
There is a post in the Vista forum "task manager permissions" which I looked at-it is similar to my issue, but I cannot get access though XP task manager to do as suggested in post#5 "Go to the top of that screen and right click on taskmgr.exe
Select "Run as administrator" "
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
