Permissions?

Post by chuff » Sun Oct 30, 2011 3:15 am

Hi Guys

I have been trying to install some software. Whenever I attempt to open a file I get the following message -

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I have tried running the file as the administrator - right click on the file, and "Run as Administrator" - I get this message.

I'm stumped - please help.

Cheers.

Hey Bolan - Thanks - you nailed it.

Just adding the file to the exceptions does not completely solve the problem, however in AVG 2012 the program allows the user to temporarily turn off AVG.

This solved the problem.

Cheers.

The "take ownership" Windows hack will allow you to take full control of programs and files...:[HIDE]
