Unable to delete a folder in Windows 7, getting error Folder Access Denied
When I try to delete a folder in my main Windows 7 account it asks for administrator permission. I approve permission but then it says I need permission from the account holder. I am the account holder. It keeps giving me the Folder Access Denied
dialog box with choices to "Try Again" or "Cancel". How do I regain ownership of this folder.
FYI I upgraded this computer from Vista. This was my main account in Vista.
I have tried changing permissions in the properties window but it does not seem to work. I may be doing it wrong Step by step instructions would be appreciated. Also, if I can do this to the whole account at once that would be wonderful.
