I've been having an issue moving a file off of my desktop. The file tells me that I'll need to provide administrator permission, and says "continue", "Skip" or "Cancel". When I click continue, it tells me "You require permission from Weston Mate-PC\Weston Mate to make changes to this file. Anyone know how to get past this?

Is this a business PC or a personal PC?

If it's a personal PC, or a work PC and you are the one who created the file or you have admin privileges on that work computer, have you tried taking ownership of the file? Right click on the file, select Properties. Select the Security tab, click on Advanced, select Owner, click Edit. Add yourself as the owner of the file. You could also go to the file properties, and at the bottom of the General tab click unblock.

Ok, so I went in to change the owner, and my options were  Weston Mate-PC\Weston Mate, which is what is currently selected, and Administrators. I changed it to administrators and there was no change, it still said I needed permission to edit the file.

This is a home computer that no one else uses.

How did the file end up on your PC? Did you save it there, or did a program place it there? What kind of file is it?

Looking at profile...you have Malwarebytes listed as your AV.

 

Malwarebytes is not...and is not intended to be an AV program.

 

Do you have an AV installed, updated and used?

 

Are you using a torrent program?

 

Any known infections?
