WINDOWS 10 IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! How To Gain Immediate Access To Your Existing Files and Folders if Windows 10 Is Denying That



WINDOWS 10 IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!



EVERY TIME I TRIED TO MOVE OR DELETE A PHOTOGRAPH OR DOCUMENT--


IN ANY FILE OR FOLDER--


THIS STARTED COMING UP!




I FOLLOWED INSTRUCTIONS AND TOOK OWNERSHIP OF MY FILES. 


I THOUGHT I HAD IT FIXED!


THEN THIS CAME UP EVERY TIME I TRIED TO DO ANYTHING!




BUT I AM THE ADMINISTRATOR!


 IT IS MY COMPUTER!


NO ONE ELSE USES IT BUT ME! 





THEN I STARTED SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS ON THE HELP FORUMS. 


THEY FIRST TOLD ME TO CHECK MY SECURITY SETTINGS.




MY SETTINGS WERE CORRECT. 


WHY AM I HAVING PROBLEMS I THOUGHT?


I THEN READ THAT THE PROBLEM WAS MY USER ACCOUNT SETTING.




I SET THAT TO "NEVER NOTIFY".


THIS DID NOT HELP EITHER!


I THEN READ THAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE CAUSED BY MY ANTI-MALWARE PROGRAM. 




I TURNED THIS OFF. 


GUESS WHAT?   


THIS DID NOT HELP!


10 HOURS LATER, NOTHING I TRIED WOULD GET RID OF THE PROBLEM. 

I FELT THAT TIME WAS RUNNING OUT FOR ME. 






AND THAT MICROSOFT WAS SCREWING ME. 









BUT THEN I FOUND THE ANSWER TO MY PROBLEM!






THE PROBLEM RESIDES IN A REGISTRY INSTRUCTION


THIS INSTRUCTION WAS TELLING WINDOWS 10 TO GET PERMISSION FROM THE COMPUTER'S ADMINISTRATOR ANY TIME ANY USER 
TRIED TO CHANGE AN EXISTING FILE OR FOLDER. 


EVEN IF THAT USER WAS THE ADMINISTRATOR!


SOUNDS VERY CATCH 22 IF YOU ASK ME!






IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU ONE SOLUTION IS TO
GET INTO YOUR REGISTRY AND SET YOUR  UAC VALUE TO ZERO. 



IT IS ALL HERE.








AN OLD  LINK EXPLAINING HOW TO DO THIS FOR WINDOWS 8 USERS. 
THE FIX IS NOT UP FOR WINDOWS 10 YET. 

____________________________



TUNING OFF UAC HAS ITS DRAWBACKS. 


MICROSOFT EDGE WILL NOT WORK IF THIS IS TURNED OFF. 



BUT I WILL NOT USE EDGE ANYWAY. 

I DO NOT WANT MICROSOFT FOLLOWING  MY EVERY MOVE ON THE WEB -

WHICH IS WHAT EDGE ALLOWS THEM TO DO BY DEFAULT. 

___________________________________



BUT FOR NOW, THIS IS THE BEST SOLUTION.



WHICH IS EVEN MORE REASON FOR YOU TO WAIT 
AT LEAST THREE MONTHS BEFORE INSTALLING WINDOWS 10
UNTIL MORE HELP IS AVAILABLE ONLINE. 




UNLESS, THAT IS, UNLESS YOU ENJOY BEING DRIVEN CRAZY!
