Good information Above,
Also would like to make a statement.
I recognized this in Vista anything you do you have to logged on as Admin.
all you have to do if u want to see hidden files, Right Click and go into the Properties, on top their should be a tab called Security click it.
then Under Group or User Names:
choose Administrators, highlight/select it then click ok.

now you should be able to see the Hidden Files.

Hope this information helps.

TY

Wait several minutes, and then attempt to access the folder again. Go to the location where the file or its folder are stored on your computer. Lock files are hidden files in Microsoft Windows. Select "Show hidden files." The lock files for Windows applications have a ~ symbol in front of the file name. For example, for test.txt, the lock file is named ~test.txt. In UNIX, the lock file may be identified by an extension of .lock or .swp within in the file name. Delete the lock file. The locked file or folder unlocks. Reboot your computer, and bring it up in Safe Mode. This prevents the startup of many of the system services and programs that could be locking the files or folders. Attempt to access the folder location and its contents. If the folder is available, save the folder or its contents in a directory to which you have access. Record the active processes running on the computer and the programs available in Safe Mode. Then, log into the computer after a normal boot up. Review the applications running in the background in normal setup. One of these applications may be preventing access to the file folder and its contents.

Use the command format: C:\> cacls <foldername> /E /G <username>:F CALCS stands for Change the Access Control ListS. This command allows you to add your user name to the security settings to permit access to the protected system folder when the gpedit.msc program is not available.

Error Creating Folder 1008:9,-5000 Access Denied Error


Hello,

You should already have read/write access to your own Application Support folder. If you are referring to the /Library/Application Support folder, repairing permissions should set the proper permissions on the folder, but probably not the contents (you really shouldn't change permissions on system files and folders). Trying to move or change permissions on the contents of an entire folder may also fail if there are items in there that you don't have access for, such as those owned by another user (check the permissions of the specific folder that you are trying to copy to).

When i try to install a critical update it was denied access by 7 zip. even after uninstalling 7 zip and installing winzip i still get the same response when trying to install updates 7 zip access denied....


Install Winrar, Here is the link

http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar391.exe

if you double click the file,the files will be extracted in the temp folder,so after installing winrar,right click on the file and select extract here. and try to install the update now,

Sometime when you extract files and it contains Malware or Trojan,Anti-Virus which support real time scan just block the files and the access denied message is displayed.

Scan the extracted files before installing so that you know it's Virus free.

Sometimes,even if you have administrator right,sometimes due to malware infection, you are denied access to some system hidden giles like folder under Local settings.

Mac Error


Hi Joe
Sound like a permissions problem.

Make sure you have admin rights on your log in or log in as admin. Check the permissions on the application folder, that you have read and write (single click on the folder press option and 'i' key to get folder info.

With Macromedia it installs folders in quite a few locations so you need to make sure you have 'read/write' permission on the whole mac.

If you still have a problem. Open the apple disk utility (in the utility folder in applications) and check permissions there. You can run fix permissions from the to.
