    loss of access to the iphone after permission changes


    I was an administrator but I edited the permissions on my C drive so I was the only user.

    I already had full administrator rights but was unable to uninstall some software, so was just trying everything.

    Rebooted pc, everything works fine but certain features I can't seem to access now.

    My iphone doesn't appear in My Computer any more. There are other issues aswell.

    Hello Krohm,

    You could enable the built-in Administrator account, and sign in to it to use instead for full control. After you sign in to it, you could just copy what you wanted (ex: shortcuts) from the old account to this one.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    not really,.. my account has 50,000 customisations,... and it is an administrator already, so kinda wanting to just have complete full control as the actual permissions suggest...

    I'd follow what Brink is saying, based on the position you've already put yourself in. It's excellent advice based on your circumstances. Complete control is accomplished from the true Administrator account.

    Secpol.msc | Local Policies | Security Options | User Account Control: Run all Administrators in Admin approval mode

    set to disabled might otherwise help you with your situation and also to understand how Windows works.

    ...which is why I wrote "set to disabled might otherwise help you"

    Sorry, I can't say about any of that as I don't use or have any experience with i products, so I don't know how they work or are intended to work.

    All I know about Apple is the Bonjour service that they made to secretly try to destroy Windows by breaking networking upon its install, heh. Oh and Adobe helped(s) them distribute it too.
