I'm having a problem with some of my folders I'm hoping someone can help me fix.  When I try to open folders I receive a message saying I don't have permission to open the folders even though I am logged in as an administrator and mine is the only user account on the computer.  I am also having problems opening some picture files, as most of them do not open when I attempt to do so.  Has anyone seen this before or know how to fix it?

Thats just the stupid way Win8 works.


I have folder in Program Files that I made for apps and if I want to add another file it said a need administrator rights to do this which I am then it shows a box do you want to contunue with a Continue button and a Cancel putton, you click Continue and it does it.


The same goes on an external hard drive if I want to rename a file.
