I've had Windows 7 for some time now and have recently found a need to place two VBS files in the root of "C". When I tried to paste a copy, an error appears stating, well...that there was an error. I can create a folder, rename an existing file, etc., but I can not create a new file or paste a copy of a file in my "C" drive. I granted myself "Full Control" and that didn't help. Next, I made myself the owner of the drive where as before the owner was "TrustedInstaller". When converting the ownership of all the documents, I must have answered a hundred messages asking me to confirm or to ackknowlege that I couldn't take ownership of various files. And finally, when all that was finished, my jaw dropped when I STILL COULDN'T put anything in the root.
I've searched for information online and come up with nothing. At best, people are recommending to turn off the UAC, but that's now how that works in Windows 7.
