I have a work computer that has recently had some company updates installed, the details of which I am unsure. However, I do have a piece of software that is fully licensed that is for personal use that I use on my machine. I have permission to install software on my company laptop if it is licensed but IT support are not allowed to help me with Personal App issues.
The problem I have is that the program I use writes to the 'my documents' folder every time it starts and since the update, every folder in 'documents and settings' has been set to read only. This results in the software I am trying to start crashing every time I start it.
Has anyone got any advice as to how I can update the permissions on the 'my documents' folder. It appears to inherit the permissions from a parent folder i.e the 'documents and settings' folder but I do not have privileges to changes this. I do however, have privileges to go into the registry, view permissions in the securities tab of a folder etc... which makes me think I do have permissions but am just doing something wrong.
Thanks for any help.
