About special permission

Q: About special permission

I access a linux in my windows explorer by type a network url. It shows as below.
The permission is under "Special permissions" category. I have no idea about "Special permissions". I can copy and paste files to this place. So what is meant by the term "Special permissions" here?

Preferred Solution: About special permission

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: About special permission

This site might help you to understand the special permissions..

2. Special PermissionsEach basic permission is actually a set of special permissions. Because of this, whenever you allow or deny a basic permission, Windows 7 works behind the scenes to manage the related special permissions for you. Table 2 lists the special permissions related to each basic permission.

I have Vista Home Premium. I have been trying to delete Grisoft. The screen says I need special permission. I have tried to access the screen for special permission but I have never been able to put a check mark by special permission.What I am doing wrong?

A:Special Permission

Are you logged on as an administrator?For uninstalling programs I recommend using Revo Uninstaller.Does a much better job than Windows.http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninst...e_download.htmlAlso, do you have something in mind to replace Grisoft? You'll need to have it downloaded and saved so you can install it right away.

Hi
I own a desktop computer which I share with my 15 yr old son and he seems to be able to access my administrator account using either the guest account or his standard account.
I'm not sure how he is able to do this

But I know he is doing this, as I set up family safety on his account and he seems to be able to change it on his own whenever I turn it on his account

When I check the security settings of some of my folders in the documents library, they grant full control to different groups that are not the default e.g. my own user name and administrators
It grants full control to groups such as BATCH and SERVICE and CREATOR OWNER
I dont think I have seen these groups before and I know that I did not make them or grant them access to my accounts

Also I noticed that he also made multiple local user accounts and then deleted the user so that it just has the account folder in the users folder

So far to combat this problem, I tried removing the groups and my sons user account from the permissions menu in the security tab of properties. However, he seems to have granted himself special permission as it wont allow me to remove the permission from him as well as having the special permission option greyed out so I cannot click on it

I checked the user account settings and I am still administrator and the default administrator account is still administrator and my son's account is still a standard account

Recently I changed my password and the default administrato... Read more

It's not my place to tell you how to discipline your son, but if it were my son Dylan it would be a smack upside the head followed by removing his computer privileges.
On a more constructive note: I would be looking in his account (and yours) for software that you aren't familiar with. I can't think of how else he would be doing it. Unless he uninstalls it after compromising administration?

I have two Dell Inspiron 17R 7720 laptops. My "old" one I bought direct from Dell in 2012, the "new" one, advertised as an "Inspiron 17R 7720 Special Edition",  I bought on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. I still have the original paperwork for the old one from when I purchased it from Dell and there is no mention of "Special Edition" in the paperwork. Both are identified only as "Inspiron 7720" on the label on the underside of the computer, and there are no "Special Edition" markings or labeling anywhere on the new computer.
Hardware is pretty much identical, 1TB Samsung ST1000LM024HN HDDs, 8 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4000/Nvidia GeForce GT 650M Video/3D graphics, Backlit Keyboard on both. The only hardware differences are the old computer has an Intel Core i7-3610QM processor (specified by me when I ordered the computer) and a 32GB mSATA SSD while the new computer has an Intel Core i5-3210M processor and no mSATA SSD. 
So what makes the "Special Edition" so special? Is there REALLY anything different about "Special Edition" computers, or was that just some sort of marketing hype?

A:What is so special about an Inspiron 17R 7720 "Special Edition"?

The mSATA cache drive was one of the differentiators.  When that system was built, SSDs were appreciably more expensive than they are now.

Have looked at the other postings about Windows 7 and "You need permission" - this one seems new. I have a laptop and a desktop both running Windows 7, both part of HOMEGROUP.

The desktop has two hard drives (C and D), both shared with full access to EVERYONE.
I can see both but can only update the D drive on the desktop from the laptop. When I try any update (new folder, copy a new file in, etc.) to the C drive, I get the "You need permission" error.

Have tried turning off sharing then turning back on for the C drive and have compared the sharing between C and D - they appear identical. Snipit of C drive permission attached. Any thoughts or ideas on what else to try would be appreciated.

A:You need permission - happening on networked drive that has permission

Rather than sharing form the root of the C: drive you should be sharing from the C:>Users folder instead. This is the default setting for Windows and there are many good reasons for this.

For networked drives that were created under a different User name you would also need to allow for sharing using the "Security" tab of the C: drive. The link below shows you how.

You can also set this drive share up at the C:>Users location if desired.

A wire came loose in my laptop charger so I asked for a replacement, but the supplier was adamant that there was something wrong with the port in my laptop, not the charger (he was wrong), so they took it away to fix. Anyway, a member of their staff took my hard drive out to copy a couple of my files to a disk for me as I needed them asap and couldn't get my laptop charging. Apparently that's all they did.

Today I got my laptop back and things are not right. I am the administrator and there are no other user accounts on my computer. I am recognised as the administrator when I go on Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts. But now all of a sudden I can't access Music, Pictures, Videos or Documents from the start menu.

It didn't let me and didn't come up with any error message. It also didn't let me see the properties of them or do any of the other right-click options.

Hi,
Thanks for your post.
Regarding your question, we wonder whether you encountered the ?Access Denied? message for every document in your computer or just part of these documents?
Here are some options you can try to solve the problem:

Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.Click the Security tab.Under Group or user names, click your name to see the permissions you have.
Click Edit, then click the check boxes for the permissions that you need. Click
OK.(
You may need to be logged on as an administrator to change file and folder permissions)
If method above failed, Please try following:
Since you have recently rebooted your computer, some of your account information may have changed and you may no longer have ownership of your files or folders. To take ownership of a folder:

Right-click the folder that you want to take ownership of, and then click
Properties.Click the Security tab, click Advanced, and then click the
Owner tab.Click Edit. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.Click the name of the person you want to give ownership to.If you want that person to be the owner of files and subfolders in this folder, select the
Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box.Click OK.

First, the important intro: I'm running two Win7 systems: my desktop runs 64bit Win7 Ultimate, the laptop is Win7 64bit home version. Both were clean installs, are routinely scanned for viruses, malware, hardware problems, regularly defragged, etc. I run lean machines; the only TSR (for all you DOS gurus!!) I run is Antivir (running in the background).

The problems

Most of us have seen these error msgs from time to time: "you need permission to perform this action", or "you require permission from the computer's administrator...", and less often "you cannot delete file as it is open in another....".

Every now and then, my computers tell me I cannot rename, delete, move, or open a particular folder or file. The folders//files in question are NOT system, hidden, page, shared, locked, etc. They could be something I've installed yesterday, a game for my wife for example, mp3s, whatever. For the love of Pete I can't figure out WHY this is happening!!!! But wait, there's more! This does NOT occur all of the time, but seems to be a hit and miss event...joy!

Example: A folder contains a bunch of files, plus one or two sub-folders. I click on the folder, tap the delete key, or use the context menu delete command, then one of the above errors pop up. OK, I open the folder, select all, tap the delete key, and poof, everything IS deleted. Back up one level, delete the folder. WTF is going on ? I may have to drill down to the lowest sub-folder l...

If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below. Also if you have any programs that may prevent system changes (like Spybot's TeaTimer program, Ad-aware's Ad-Watch, and others), make sure you disable them before doing any of the fixes (or accept the changes for the fix we give you when asked by the programs).

Go to My Computer->Tools (or View)->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders (it's Show all files for Windows 98).
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

Make sure you downloaded, installed, updated and ran these programs (run in Safe Mode) already - Ad-aware, Spybot and Ewido (only if you have Windows 2000 or XP). If you didn't, do them now. For more information, go to http://www.greyknight17.com/spyware.htm

I have a computer thats a few years old. A friend of mine had a computer shop with top-notch equipment laying around and just threw it together for me one day. I do plenty of downloading and all that. Its always ran very well with its 896MB RAM and 1.21G Processor. A few nights ago it started rebooting itself, and after a few times would start rebooting itself while still trying to load Windows. I unhooked the ethernet wire and tried to start Windows, everything went fine untill I plugged the wire back in and opened internet explorer. I figured I just got a virus and tried to reformatt everything and for three nights it would freeze in the middle of loading the boot disc and such. finally it made it thru the install..... all TEN HOURS of it! It went so unbelivably slow and now that windows is installed it takes about 15 min just to get to the welcome screen and another 20 untill I can actually open anything on my desktop. I've changed my RAM chips to any different possiable combination, including each one by itself. I have a seperate back-up hard drive that I've also tried to install Windows on to no avail.

Each PC already has the kind of video card that will allow dual monitor useage. What I need is to know how to set this gear up to work the way I need it to work.

Someone said I might be able to use two KVM switches (somehow). But I need to know what to buy and how to connect it up. Will it be some fancy A/B switch of some sort? Or some kind of special KVM cable or box? Maybe two?

Hi everyone, I just had this idea the other night and I don't know how to do it, or if it's possible.
I've been using this Entertainment Hub program called XBMC that let's me organize all my media, I have it set to pull everything from my external hdd like movies, audio, pictures, etc. and then it pulls information like covers, cast, year, bios, and etc from the internet, all the information on whatever movie or album it needs to. It is quite a big program so sometimes it crashes when running because of all the other processes I have going on.
 
So my idea was to only boot up this program by itself as a dual boot or something along those lines. I already have a dual boot set up so I was hoping that my idea would have it's own custom boot option added to the list. For example, If I just booted up my computer, I usually have to select between Windows and Linux. I would want to be able to select my custom boot instead like...
Windows Vista
Ubuntu 12.04
XBMC
 
And if this custom boot was possible, the only other factors I would need to figure out would be that the program get's information on movies and audio from the internet, so I would need to have an internet connection possible along with my firewall and antivirus running. Plus being able to access my external of course.
Thank you for any help in advance. -Slim

A:My Special Idea

I don't think your ambition is possible - the XMBC web-site says it is available for both Windows and Linux ( as well as others ) but this implies you need an operating system to run it on so you will not be able to set XMBC up as a third bootable system.
 
You say it crashes from time to time because of other demands on your system. Would it be effective to run it under Ubuntu which I believe requires fewer resources than Windows to run ?  Alternatively, have you considered increasing the amount of RAM on your system ? And, are you using the latest version of XMBC ?

Someone who was closing an office yesterday, gave me a Minuteman Enterprise E 1500 UPS that is two-and-a-half years old. I looked it up and it seems they sell for $550 to $690 new.

I can understand a professional grade UPS costing more than an off-the-shelf consumer grade UPS; but, this is a huge difference -- roughly ten times as much.

What is so different about this that it costs ten times as much?

I'm looking to start backing up all of my MP3's onto disk, but my current software (Ulead BurnNow) will not do what I want. That is, I want to be able to burn a set of MP3's on a disc one day, then when I want to add more, be able to burn them onto the same disc that already has files on it. In a perfect world I'd also like to be able to erase selected files that are already on the disc if I want to. What software out there will do this? I don't want to use Nero.

I'm really curious. I recently watched a video in which a guy found, bought, and cleaned up a ThinkPad that was the same model he had years prior and he spoke very highly of it.Then, I come to reddit and find this sub and the love for the machine seems so passionate and it has me really curious. What makes a ThinkPad special? Why do people love them so? Thanks for any replies, I look forward to reading more about this machine.

I have an old Vaio laptop that was given to me a while back. It was working fine then it stopped booting. I played with it, then decided to reinstall Windows XP.

Now I have Windows XP installed fine, but it doesn't seem to be recognizing the battery. There are no battery power management options and when I unplug it after charging it all night it goes dead.

I don't have much experience with laptops, and I don't have access to the original OS disc that came with the laptop. Do I need a special version of XP for laptops, or is there something I can download to get it working on battery power again? I don't think this is the same problem that had me reinstall Windows, the battery still worked then.

Thanks,
JTN

Does anyone know how to setup AIM (or trillian www.trillian.cc) so that what away message is sent to people is specific to their screen name. Like say I have a message for littlebob23 if Joe2121 IMs me... they get "I am away right now" but if littlebob23 IMs me, they get "Hey Little Bob! How are you?" Is that possible?

I have found all the 64 bit drivers that I need for all my components and all 64 bit software and have it ready when I install V64 on my new build. Is there anything special that I am going to need to do during install or after install that isn't in the norm when it comes to installation???

A:Do I need to do anything special after V 64 is installed?

The only thing to be aware of is that on a few systems Vista x64 will not install with 4 or more gig of ram

Alright, I have 3 different effects I want to find and maybe you guys can point me to software that can do something:I'm trying to make a mic-recorded sound and turn it into a radio sound that sounds like... it's on the radio.1. I want a metallic resonance effect. Like it's coming out of cheap speakers, you know? Like fighter pilot sounding...2. I want radio static and maybe something that will apply static to high pitches like on the radio if someone makes an 's' sound.3. A timbre or sound separator that will separate sounds in a sound file. Like I want only to hear the drums in a song or something. So I can pick what instruments show up in the music.Edit: Moved topic from General Chat to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I currently have toshiba hi def tv wide screen, and i can hook up my pc to it using scable. But the quality is really poor.

I was wondering if there is a special cable made that will allow me to connect my pc using hi defination output for my tv. My pc list is below and my tv resulution goes up to 1080i.

And the tv model is 30hf85 from toshiba.
 

A:Special cable for my hi-def tv?

It depends on the connectors. You can use either a VGA or a DVI (you probably have both) and of course you need a DVI connection on your video card) cable.

Alright.. I'm looking for software that will start any program at a given time, let the program run a task, then close the program, without me ever having to touch my computer in the meantime. Does something like this exist? Thanks!

A:Looking for a special program...

All modern operating systems have this functionality built in.On Windows, it's called the Task Scheduler.On Linux, it's called cron.On Mac OS X I'm not sure what they call it. But I'm pretty sure that cron is lurking there somewhere.

I was watching Criminal Minds the other day, and Notices they there was a computer they were working on...it had a password on the computer... and if the user got it wrong 6 times, the hard drive gets formatted. They called it 'Deadbolt Defense'

Is there such software made? Where can I acquire it?

Not that I am trying to hide anything, Just pretty darn curious if such thing existed.

Hi everyone,

I have a USB device which I'm using to connect my PC to an arcade machine. The idea behind all this is so I can press a button on the machine and then the PC will pick up that button press as a keyboard button or a joystick button being pressed.

The game I'm using can only map controls using either a keyboard (USB or PS/2) or Joystick (USB only).

The board itself once connected to the PC shows up on my device list as a "USB composite device" but what I actually want is for that device to be listed as either a keyboard or a Joystick so that the game is able to map the buttons.

Would I need some sort of special driver for this or is there another way around this problem? Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

A:Need help with special USB device

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Yes I believe you need a driver for the device. Every device, whether it be a printer, disk drive, or keyboard, must have a driver program. A driver acts like a translator between the device and programs that use the device. Each device has its own set of specialized commands that only its driver knows.
