    Windows 8.1 pro - permission system SUCKS


    I am the only user of my computer, I don't need the microsoft nanny to give me permission to make changes to MY own computer.

    Is there any way to turn ALL that permissions crap OFF for good?

    And then when the system gets blasted by all the malware taking advantage of you owning your own computer (or "you" times all the people that have one - because it was too easy to code to exploit) - you'll complain you needed it more protected, right? heh heh

    Microsoft don't protect me from malware, I need Malwarebytes and Kaspersky to do that. It's my computer, I paid for it and the OS, I don't need permission from Bill Gates to use it as I see fit. I am the only one that types on my keyboard and I shouldn't need permission to use it.

    Might be a good idea to recall what you agreed to when you clicked on the "I Accept" dialog at the end of the MS EULA.

    Oh, they most certainly do. Do you patch your systems every patch Tuesday?

    Maybe they should have just left it like in Pre-SP2_XP days when null passwords could easily be accessed and things like that, so we can all sit back and laugh at t3h n00bs.

    Microsoft does some good in helping with that. If it wasn't for their security measures, it would be much easier than it is now for someone that knows what they're doing to start "typing at your keyboard" virtually, from remote prompt or even with full desktop view and all.

    My question was, does anyone know how to disable all that "permissions crap"?

    I don't see how keeping me from deleting unwanted files on my computer protects me from malware. I'm really tired of "jumping through hoops" to perform some of the most basic functions.

    Your question was answered in the second post and a warning about doing so was given in the third...
