My computer says I am the administrator but when I went to delete a folder it says I couldn't because I was not the administrator. I am the administrator though.. Can someone tell me whats wrong.

Your topic says "I am an administrator on my computer, but I cannot encrypt my files" but you're problem seems to be with deleting folders. If so, what folders are you trying to delete? Please provide the full path to the folder.

Well I would like to encrypt a folder. I right click on it, go to properties and then advanced. There is an option to encrypt the folder but I can not click on it. If I am the administrator.. which I am because I'm the only person who uses this laptop, shouldn't I be able to encrypt it? The folder I was able to delete the other folder once I restarted my computer so that is no longer an issue.

Thank you for your help!!
