Just lately I have been geting the response that I do not have permission to carry out delete, plus there is a small group of files which are the remnants of an uninstalled app which cannot be deleted --- I use a Forced Delete utility which unlocks and deletes these files, they are removed, but after re-starting they have reappeared. And  I cannot gain access to make changes to a file's Properties which I understand is required. 


I know this is to do with a limited Administrator status and permissions, even though I am the Administrator and the only user. I have read some articles about this but so far have not been able to follow them. For example, when I try to use Command Prompt Admin as described in an article I get the response that the system does not recognise the command, so I know I am not entering it right.


Help with this would be appreciated.
