    OK, this is not my strong area of support and I am not sure of how the password protected might affect your ability to change things. With that said, there are some system files that would require you to take ownership (as suggested by David Bailey); however, just to be sure that is the case, can you give us a specific example of where you are encountering this error? Specifically, is it in a user folder, and, if so, does that user folder have a different username than yours? Did you ever create a new admin user? Any chance you did an upgrade and you are trying to access something in windows.old? Please provide additional detail about what 'name' really means. Is it really another username?
    Basically I created a folder, I couldn't rename/delete it cause I didn't have permission.
    I also can't save downloads because I can't change the contents of my folders, I have no other accounts/users either just this one.

    Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 8
    Here's what happens when I tried to do that


    Just save it to your Desktop & right click it & choose Merge.

    You could give yourself total control in C:\ Properties.

    Just in case David's latest suggestion doesn't work, here is a screenshot of the permissions for my Downloads folder. Might be worth it to compare mine with yours:

    This is my last post as David and I are both concentrating in the same area but you need to check the other entries on the same view:

    If they match my views, then I'm lost for any other recommendations... other than to do a complete malware scan. Good luck.

    Every check mark in yours is GRAYED OUT.
    Mine is black.

    This indicates you have NO permissions.

    First click Advanced button.

    Then do as in the picture below:

    Then click on Advanced permissions & check all the boxes except the one below all the others.

    Reboot & try doing the add take ownership reg file or something else you couldn't do before.
    post back with results.
    I have cramps in my fingers.
