I just rescued a COMPAQ Presario PC from the side of the road and have just gotten through running the built in system recovery thingy, the one that resets everything to the original factory specs, and I seem to have hit a bit of a snag.
I set up an Administrator Account and deleted the "computer owner" account.
Next I went online to download some programs that I want to use, like Anti Virus, ATF and CrapCleaner and I hit a bit of a road block in the process.
Whenever I download anything I like to stick it in a download folder. I normally have that folder located at; C:\Documents and Settings\ADMIN\DOWNLOADS.
That should be simple enough...right? Well therein lies my problem, because every time that I get to the "ADMIN" part I get a nasty note, from windows, saying; C:\Documents and Settings\ADMIN is not accessible Access is denied.
So, I'm left wondering if I overlooked something or set something wrong when I setup that account.
Can any of you guys shed any light on my problem and help me out of my delima? That ADMIN account is the only account on the PC and I have it set as Administrator.
Thanks for any help with this thing.
