Default disk problem (permissions?)

alright, so I somehow lost the ability to delete folders from my C: drive (note: windows isnt installed on the C: drive, I use this drive as a general user data drive... it was just easier to share it between multiple operating systems.)

I noticed I lost the ability to delete folders after I installed some winodws updates, thus requiring a restart to my computer.

I could probably figure this out if I took the time, but this forum needs activity, and I was just wondering if someone knew some of the pretty obvious things I should check so I dont go off doing something complex that could lead to some pretty nasty consequences.

This may have been the first thing you checked but did C somehow become a read only drive?

you will have to right click the folder in question and click the security tab.
then select edit and then another dialog box appears and then you select what permesions each user should support and if the user is not there you will have to hit add on that box and type in the name of all the users you want to delete the folder and press okay then edit it from there then okay then okay and you should be able to delete shit.

actually, I dont have a security tab present. I might have failed to mention that this is a fresh install of xp pro (fresh meaning 2 weeks ago) and I have had no need to turn on network sharing/security.

actually, I turned it on and I still have no security options.



yes, I am adimistrator, so a user group setting is not the problem

Try this program below. Your old install or a virus or old file share program may have control somehow "hidden control" of those folders. BTW found this using google.
