Folder Access Denied, Unable to display current owner.

Greetings All, hope this is the proper discussion group.

Running Windows Vista Home Premium on a lovely HP dv2000. Like it a lot.
However, I've run into a snag. In attempting to access a folder which I've
had no trouble accessing previously. I'm told I don't have permission to
access the folder. I'm the only user. I am Administrator. I go to the folder
properties to change the security settings. Under Current Owner: is listed
"Unable to dislay current ower."

It will not allow me to change the owner to myself (as listed below under
"Change owner to:"

I thought it might be something to do with it being a folder I use with
Expression Web, but I can't access the folder via Expression Web either. I
have been able to access some of the files through Adobe Photoshop Elements
6's Organizer by using the "Reveal in Explorer" function to access
sub-folders.

I'm going to try to move these files from their current location. However, I
am very interested in knowing how a folder could "spontaneously" become
"property" of an unknown user and how do I correct the problem so that I can
access it.

Thanx for any and all input . . . ;-} StrangeDze

Andre, no, the "ownership" change took place spontaneously. I had made no
effort to make any changes. Other folders within Documents folder have not
been affected. At least I haven't found any yet.

Yes, Andre. I've attempted to regain ownership via the secuity tab in the
folder properties. It won't allow me as it says I don't have adminstrative
rights to do so. Problem with that is that I'm the ONLY user and am the
Administrator/User

Once you open the document with Elements save it to a new folder... for
example Desktop\StrangeDze.

Try temporarily disabling User Account Control to see if you can then access

Thanx Andre, I'll give it a try. If I can get access, I'll move the files and
delete the offending folder and then reactivate UAC. I'll let you know the

Well, it didn't work. I turned User Account Control off. Restarted the
system, tried accessing the folder and a still being blocked. The specifics
are:

When I click on the folder to open it or right-click and left click Open or
Explore, I get the following message: "You don't currently have permission to
access this folder. Click Continue to get access t this folder."

I click Continue. The next message says: "You have been denied permission to
acces this folder. To gain access to this folder you will need to use the
security tab."

I click Security Tab link. The folder's Properties window opens to the
Security Tab. It reiterates that "You do not have permisssion to view or edit
this object's permission settings."

I click on the Advanced button. The Advanced Security Settings window opens
and I click on the Owner tab. Under Object Name is the folder name. Under
Current Owner it says "Unable to display current owner." I am not allowed to
"Change owner to"

I have been able to get into the folders where my files are via the
organizer in Adobe Photoshop Elements 6, however, I sure would like to know
how this folder became "unowned". Thanx for all the feedback . . . ;-} SD

Thanx Bob, I've done that but would sure like to know how my folder became
"unowned" and permission to access the folder denied.

DO THE FOLLOWING:

open Command Prompt as "run as administrator."

Type lusrmgr.msc Return

you will get a GUI Local Users and groups. Check the Users node. Your sign
in name must be among users as default. So far so good.

Go to the Groups node, expand it. Look at the Groups. Double Click on
Administrators.

ADD yourselves to the Administrators group. Precisely as your name appears
in the Users group. It will not allow you to goof up.

Close the GUI.

Right click on your folder. Select Security tab. I am typing the rest from
memory, may miss a step or two. Add yourselves to the Users. First do Edit,
then Add in the next window.

Check Full control checkbox. Press Apply. Close that window. Select Ok.

From now on the whole folder and its subfolders will be your territory.

Please let me know what the result is. I'm having a like problem
trying to get rid of Norton. Norton was uninstalled through the ADD/
REMOVE module, and also through the Programs section. However, I had
to restore the computer which put Norton back on since it was loaded
at factory. Now, I can't uninstall NORTON through normal procedure
and when I try to delete it otherwise, I'm getting the PERMISSION
DENIED message. Thanks...

Bob, I still don't have an answer as to why the folder "spontaneously" became
property of an "unknown user".

I enjoyed the movie Strange Days
I am sometimes found in a strange daze.
I am known to have strange days.
