Admin problems

#1
I'm trying to copy some files in a folder. The pc hasn't got a password, so I assume that I'm the administrator ... but I still get a message that I don't have enough rights to copy a file into the folder.

Is there some way to get around that? I tried to change the properties but to no avail ...

Best way to do it is Take Ownership of the folder http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-v...-in-vista/

If that doesnt work try logging in with a different account and take ownership that way.

Worst case I am happy to use teamviewer to remote onto your pc and try to sort it at a prearranged time.

Thanks for the tip: tried the TakeOwnership-thingy, but it didn't work because now it said that the file was being used by another prog.
Eventually I restarted it in safe mode and was able to put it in the right folder. After restart it kept saying that there was a problem with part of the prog so I deleted completely.

End result wasn't what I hoped for, but there was a lesson in it (somewhere).
