Hi there everyone,
I found your page while looking for s solution to my problem, I hope you can save me!
I have a desktop, running Windows 10.
So it all began a couple of days ago when I tried to save a word file and I was given the warning that I could not as I had no permission. I thought it may have something to do with file folder permissions, so I checked that. And in do so I realized that my Bitdefender was not running, I could not open it as again I have no permissions.
I restarted in safe mode, and I was able to open bitdefender now, scans came out clean although the auto pilot keeps turning off.
After the scan I returned to regular windows and a few icons were missing from my task bar (explorer, I forget what it is called now, and another one I can no longer tell what it was).
I wanted to check my program files, and then I discovered I had no permission to open c:/
Or anything else for that matter.
I did some research looking for answers, and I tried resetting the ownership
When I tried it, it first said " owner cannot be displayed at this time" I tried to run the change ownership, but it came up with a bunch of warnings about files it could not access, and in the end could not complete the transfer adequately.
So then in a panic I tried editing the registry on the command prompt, but it said I could not because something I needed was in use by another person.
I also cannot make a new guest account.
I think that pretty much covers everything I have tried thus far.
Oh! I also do not have a system restore point. I tried to do that but it is not showing anything.
I have had no recent changes I can point to, other than downloading a bunch of iTunes music songs, and dark souls from steam.
I have a lot of important files in there, but to be honest at this point I am mostly curious as to what is going on.
thank you so much for the forum, and assistance!
