    .... to delete unwanted folders that were moved to the new W-7 PC in error.
    I'm the owner and Admin so how can I get permission PERMANENTLY to delete
    things I don't want anymore on this new PC? I want this permission crap
    ENDED once and for all. Please, someone must know how we can get
    *PERMANENT* relief from this permission crap on W-7.

    Not enough information, as usual.

    What more info do you need? I keep getting asked for permission and it's
    denied.

    That was no permanent fix. I doubt I can go back to Sept 16th to do it again
    with this NSP.

    Shutting off User Account Control is permanent, until you turn it back

    From the site:
    Method 1: Disable or Turn Off UAC (User Account Control) in Control Panel

    1. To user Control Panel to disable UAC in Windows 7, there are several
    methods to access the User Account Control settings page:
    1. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family
    Safety -> User Account.

    * How is it turned off there? I see no choice. That notifying about
    changes but doesn't stop the permission thing from coming up. We've been
    through this before. How is the PERMISSION thing turned off?

    2. Go to Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System and Security ->
    Action Center.

    * There is no "Action Center" there in my version of W-7.

    3. Click or right click on Flag icon in notification area (system
    tray), and then Open Action Center.

    *There is no flag icon there to be found in my version of W-7.

    4. Type “MsConfig” in Start Search to start System Configuration,
    then go to Tools tab, select Change UAC Settings, then click on Launch
    button.
    2. Click on User Account Control settings link.

    * This does not stop the permission window from coming up when trying to
    delete unwanted files.

    Since you don't describe the "permission window", all I can say is...
    Yes it does.

    It's the regular "permission window" on W-7. It says permission is needed
    to continue when you try to do almost anything on your PC. It's the window
    when you click "continue" will not let you continue and again asks for
    permission. It's a small window that pops up. I'm sure you know what that
    window looks like. I can't add a jpg here in a text NG.

    There is no way to "shut it off" without going into and changing the
    registry. I did the other one (ran the bar down) last time and the
    Permission Window still appeared the next time I wanted to do something on
    the W-7 PC like delete some of my own unwanted files.

    It's a small window that says I need permission to continue whatever I want
    to do. When I click on continue it doesn't allow me to continue to delete
    or move my files. How else can it be described? This is a text NG so I
    can't add a JPG to show you. I'm surprised you don't know what that window
    looks like. If it's not called a permission window... what does MS call
    it?

    You can include the file path. That can make a huge difference.

    Anything short of 100% information is a crap shoot. You barely include 50%
    in your first postings.

    As far as I know you "cannot" get "PERMANENT" relief. You can only learn
    how to grant yourself permissions on folders and files.

    Right click on the file or folder.
    Select "Properties"
    Select "Security" tab
    Select "Administrators (User Name-PC\Administrators) or Users (User
    Name-PC\Users)
    Look to see if you have Full Control, if not, select "Edit" and grant
    yourself Full Control.

    Even then there are times where the OS will not let you change that. You
    can learn to live with it or sell your computers at your next garage sale.

    While it's true that you aren't supposed to attach an image to a text
    only newsgroup, you can however upload the jpeg image somewhere and post
    a link to it in the newsgroup. A little program that I use that fits
    this bill nicely is called JetScreenShot. You can get it here:

    http://www.jetscreenshot.com

    and here is a preview of what you can do with it:

    I had the same problem, a very simple life-saving fix I found is a registry
    tweak at:

    http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...ership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/

    It adds a "take ownership" option to the RIGHT CLICK menu. You can use it on
    any folder or file; I even used it on system files and it worked. Of course
    I had the UAC turned off.

    It was written for Vista, but I have been using it on Win 7 with no
    problems.

    Regards,
    Brian

    I didn't see a file path in the small pop-up window that asks for
    permission.

    Sorry, I figured everyone who has W-7 would see that "permission" window as
    soon as they tried to install software, move or delete a file.

    This rigmarole is what we would like to avoid on the W-7 PC. Even when this
    is done permission is not always granted which is galling and aggravating
    beyond belief. Sometimes the selections are grayed out and can't be clicked
    on.

    Odd how MS forces this crap on PC owners who don't want it. It should be an
    option to turn on or off, not a default that makes some people suggest W-7
    is so worthless it should be sold at garage sales.

    I'll take a look at it as it may work for me. On Vista we didn't have the

    Unfortunately the hack from that site does not include exe files.
    (I'll see if I've still got a reg file that does.)
