I have only had this pc for about week. I cut the av off and it still downloads it with the - reg instead of .reg. The reason I was wanting to do this when I try to download a file from the net it tells me I do not have permission. When I take ownership of it it downloads with no problem. When I updated to 8.1 I lost the ability to take ownership. It is working great now thanks to you. Thanks again.
ok found the way to take ownership. used it on windows folder and I still can't run regedit.exe or control.exe and not even cmd.exe
I get the following message: "the application was unable to start correctly (0x000007b) click ok to close the application"
who's responsible for this error box. how can I circumvent it? Do I move my antivirus or the defender?
In that case, please go ahead and post screenshots showing each step of what you are seeing when trying to set permissions using the Properties page. Hopefully, this will give us a better idea of what may be happening.
No i'm on my personal PC, no domain nor proxy.
But i'm using a Microsoft Account instead of a normal account, can this be the problem ?
Also, i'm gonna post some screens but it's in French, would you mind ?
I think i've figured out the problem :
when it takes ownership it does it for HP-envy/LAHCENE.
and when it tries to set permissions it does it for HP-envy/AMINE.
I'm gonna try a local account and report
Now with a normal account, when I use the command prompt method it gives me no error, but with the context, it stills do it :/
