Files / folders can not be accessed in Windows Vista or Windos 7

For those of us who are used to using Windows XP and then move to Windows 7, might be experiencing some problems. One of them when we get a file from another computer or from the internet at times this file we can not open, copy, delete and other access (Access denied), even though we are logged in with administrator privileges. Why does this happen and how to fix this?

Windows Vista and Windows 7 apply security (security) is more than the previous windows, one of Access control to the file or object on the computer. Only users, groups or computers that have been given permission to the file can access it. The goal is to better secure your computer from unauthorized users to access files / particular object, though this sometimes inconvenient (because even if we log on and have administrator access rights, we still can not access it)

When we get our computer files from outside then we can not open it, delete or even to copy, most likely, these files do not have a user or group is allowed access. To check this we can right-click this file and select properties, then see the Security tab.

From the above shows that this file is no user or group is allowed to access it. So open the file, delete or copy files will not work.

Give File Permissions

To overcome the above, we must add a user or group who has access to the file. Do the following:

  1. Right-click the file and select properties (we must have access rights administrators), then open the Security tab
  2. Click the Edit button, then will appear Security settings
  3. Click the Add button to add the user (user / group)
  4. If we want everyone to be able to access, can we add user everyone, or we add to our course, in accordance with the currently logged user. Click Check Names to check that we enter the registered or not.
  5. Once the user is added, then we can set access rights to be given, such as: Modify, Read & Execute, Read, Write also Special Permission.
  6. Then click OK, and should this file we can access in accordance with the access rights that we give
