    Windows Vista-32

    I'm logged in with my admin account and trying to change some rights
    on a folder and a file but it keeps telling me I need to provide
    "admin permission"

    Why is it doing this - I AM the admin its a single user laptop there
    IS only me and I have an admin account.

    It isnt even allowing me to GIVE permission or telling me how to do
    so.

    Can someone tell me how I can gain TOTAL control of MY files
    on MY computer please?

    No waffling about what is or isnt safe please - I need to control my
    laptop.

    I'm so annoyed.

    thank you

    pamela.

    Moving a file that required admin rights, it does it twice!
