    You need permission to perform this action is the message when I try and

    If you need permission to delete the folder the 'permission' box should have
    a 'continue' button. Pressing continue should take you through the various
    User Account Controls to enable you to delete the folder, i.e., if necessary
    asking for the administrator password.

    If this isn't happening then try right clicking Windows explorer (start>all
    programs>accessories>Windows Explorer) and select the 'run as administrator'
    option.

    Since we don't know the source of your folder, try to gain Full Control of
    the folder by right clicking folder > Properties > Security and set the
    correct parameters for Full Control. Also, you can try to delete the folder
    by drilling down to the files and start deleting from there.

    Hope this helps...

    You can turn off that aggravation and user account confusion. Click on the
    link and read up on how to do it.

    You can take ownership of the folder, and use a group like Administrators
    that has full rights on the folder or an individual user account that has
    full rights on the folder. That individual user account can be the the user
    part of the users/admin account, which is based on the user-id you use to
    login as user/admin. You are part of User and Administrators group as
    user/admin on Vista.

    Re: You need permission to perform this action

    i have an installer file, that i trust as it worked on xp pro, that wants to write to winsxs but i get this error message

    Error
    Cannot create the following directory:
    C:\Windows\WinsSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.ATL_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50.727.42_x-ww_6e805841

    so i tried to create the dir manually but i dont have permission even running explorer as administrator with uac turned off.
    For some reason I am unable to set it to full control.
