    Help please.
    I have two accounts on my HP Vista (Premium) system.

    Mine, set to administrator, and Guest, which is turned off.
    I am the only user.

    What do I need to do to overcome the case where I'm constantly told by my
    system that
    I need permission to copy a file to a folder, or delete a file. These are
    not system files or folders.

    This doesn't happen every time I want to copy or delete, I just don't
    understand why it
    happens at all since I I'm the administrator.

    I know it's a Vista safety feature, but should be my choice weather I want

    Have you gone into computer management and manually activated the nativ
    administrator account? Or are you using the default administrato
    account that is set up during install? there is a difference in th
    permissions given to these accounts. It is part of Vista's User Accoun
    Control. You either live with it or turn it off, which leaves you les
    secure and some native security dependent programs and services will no
    operate correctly or at all

    Thanks for the reply Kerry,
    I don't recall any of the folder or file names. Suffice it to say that the
    folder is one of my own
    making and the file was not a system file.
    To be more specific and if you don't mind, I'll 'Ping' you (Kerry Brown)
    next time it happens with specific details.
    To be sure it won't be
