Want to turn off Vista permissions

I'm the only one who ever uses my PC, and have been driven nuts by not being able perform certain actions on certain files because I don't have permission. I've learned how to change the permissions - though I don't know why I should have to do this at all - but find that sometimes even after giving myself permission, I get a message I don't have permission.

What I'd like to do is disable permissions completely; is this possible?

HELP!

Open up Control Panel, and type in user account into the search box. You'll see the link for "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off". Click it. Uncheck the box, and reboot your computer. You should be done with obnoxious prompts!

Error 1402.Setup cannot open the registry kaey. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\CLSID\{7EA9A8FA-F5D2-49E1-99E8-C26EE07FCEEB}\LocalServer32.


The first thing you should do to fix this error is - if you're using Windows 98 or 2000 - to use the 'registry checker' facility. This is done by loading up the "Run Console" with CTRL + R and then typing "registry checker". If the registry is intact then this will not be a problem. On later versions of Windows, you should use a 'registry cleaner' program to perform this task.

If you have XP, Vista or Windows 7, you should first download a registry cleaner from the Internet and let that scan your system. It will look for any registry errors on your PC and then fix them, which should fix the 1402 error in the process. To use one of these, you need to download a registry scanner program and then let it scan your PC. It will identify all the damaged parts of Windows and should fix them. And if one of these registry errors is causing the 1402 error then a quick restart after the registry scan should enable you to install Office or the program you wanted.

If that method did not work, you should try using a different user account, or creating a new user account, to install the program onto. It's often the case that user accounts will become corrupted for whatever reason, blocking access to the registry. This causes the 1402 error because it means that the program cannot access the files and settings it needs to create when it's being installed. You should try creating a new administrator account and then installing the program on that.

ERROR MESSAGE


> this file does not have a program associated with it

Vista should say "choose a program from the following list". Correct?
Choose Internet Explorer, and check the "always use this program' box.

I am not able to backup error code is 80070005 my os is windows vista home basic


In order to find the root cause of this issue, we need few more information.

a) Are you performing a complete PC backup?
b) Do you have complete file permission to the files you are backing up and to the destination you are saving the back up?

As a workaround you need to follow the steps provided below.

Check the permissions of the file or of the folder the file is saved in. Here's how:
1. Right-click the file or folder, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Security tab.
3. Under Group or user names, click your name to see the permissions you have.
To open a file, you need to have read permission.
Check to see if the file is encrypted. Here's how:
4. Right-click the file, and then click Properties.
5. Click the General tab, and then click Advanced.
If the Encrypt contents to secure data check box is selected, you need the certificate that was used to encrypt the file to open it.

Apparently MS in their infinite wisdom decided that in vista they would take the power away from the user and remove the administrator from the equation.
So no matter how many thing your try in the user accounts you will not get full admin rights.
but here is a reg hack that worked for me real well. I am running windows vista home basic

Click Start and Run type in regedit and enter
your now at the registry editor.
click and expand HKEYLOCALMACHINE
go down and click SOFTWARE
click MICROSOFT
click WINDOWS
click CURRENTVERSION
click POLICIES
click SYSTEM
you will see the registry entries to the right
right click in the white area and select new DWORD
Name it "EnableLinkedConnections" and enter
Right Click on EnableLinkedConnections and choose MODIFY change the Data Value to "1"
Save and exit Registry Editor
Reboot your computer and try deleting the folder you wanted to again.

WARNING:
Using this reg edit you are changing your registry and could develop problems if you don't do it correctly. Be Warned and do some research prior if you need to understand registry editor.

Your account permissions are not set correctly. You need to change them so the account you are having problems with has the correct permissions. One way to do that is found here.

Unable to update or sychronize with time.windows.com


you need admin\administrator rights to change anything on vista. it is suppose to be more secured than Windows XP.
administrator /user is power user rights, which don't have rights to change system setting, but you do have rights to install certain program.
login into the machine as administrator and provide the corect password.
