You need permission to perform this action is the message when I try and
delete a folder so how can I delete the folder?

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 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.

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

For some reason I am unable to set it to full control.

Right-click on the install file, and select "Run as administrator"

Thanks Dave, It didn't work but I've just found out it's a compatibility issue and there is an update availiable from the software's manufacturer. Simon Di Heaven
