Cannot access files and folders in Windows.
Original title: the property of the file details
Something has changed... I can no longer access/modify fields on the details pane of the files MP3 etc. to make changes.
The details pane now looks like the one shown below, and none of the fields are available to modify.
Any advice on the cause and solution to recover the situation would be welcome.

I have Vista. I can't access the folders and files of one of my user accounts. The Office for this account seems to have nothing about it. I was able to confirm that the folders and files are still on my computer but I can't open them. I get a RunDLL error when you connect to this ACCT.

Original title: Windows search returns no results, but only for a single user - another user works very well - Windows 7
All of a sudden windows search of files and folders (from windows Explorer) do not return results - even if I'm looking for in a folder with a file name that I know is in there. However, it works for the other user on this system.
The things that I tried or looked at who did not work:
- Configuration of the default folder options.
- reconstruction of the index
- sfc/scannow - said "windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to solve some of them. I have the CBS. If necessary log file.
- research done that windows has been archived 'Tour of the windows features turn on or off.
- Ran the registry of Windows Search - he said that he fixed two things (cannot tell you what they were now), but still, it does not solve the problem. When I run it says once again that there are no errors.
- I checked this registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerAdvanced\\\ and key Start_SearchFiles - which was set to 2, the default
- Under Customize Start Menu - search with public folders is selected under search for other files and libraries.
It still does not work. The search box in the start menu seems to work, but not for anything I get.

It is a problem with iTunes. About 8 months ago I had to reinstall my operating system. When I reinstalled iTunes, it does not recognize my music already purchased. He tells me that songs should be allowed, I put my username and password and it tells me that they are allowed.
So I finally emailed Apple support recently. They suggested that this is a problem with the permissions on the iTunes Media folder. Apple support gave me the following URL address: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308419/en-us.
I followed the instructions on the Microsoft support site. But when I right click on the iTunes Media folder, and then click Properties, there is no security tab, with the following statement on the Microsoft Support site.
I also tried the instructions for "If you are not joined to a domain and want to view theSecurity tab. "In Control Panel, I don't have the choice of themes & appearances. There is a choice of Folder Options, but once in the view tab, there is no choice ofuse simple file sharing.
If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Whenever I try to COPY a group of files and folders 1 folder to another folder, Vista wants only to allow me to MOVE them. What is my problem?
Select the files to copy (using the command CTRL to select more than one non sequential order) and once they are all chosen type CTRL-C. Then move to the folder where you want to copy and click header file and type CTRL-V. Perhaps this method of copying files won't work where others do not.
I hope this helps.
Good luck! Lorien - a - MCSE/MCSA/network + / A +.
Original title: unlock files locked in the residential-change group of security settings does not (always says that I don't have permission even if I am Admin)
I have a Windows 7 operating system. I am new to congregate. I recently noticed that I was connected to a House Group 'network' and so I 'locked' cases to the case where I me be hacked (that I don't use other computers and thought it was strange). Unfortunately, now that I want to access these files, it says I don't have permission and when I sometimes IN a folder, by allowing permissions administrator in the Security tab, I'm still stuck to see the documents by an error saying that I don't have permission. I was rid of the congregate at a given moment, then 'active' it again with the idea that I should probably be in home group to make changes to the way they were. I know that I blew it, but I don't know how to fix it! Please help me to unlock these files! I normally log - on as an administrator (no one else assigned to the computer), so I don't understand why I can't make changes to the permissions.
(1) where the files are stored on the computer?
(2) would you move the music file to a different location/drive and check if the problem persists?
(3) what is you get the exact error message?

Before I upgraded to Windows 7, I had a wonderful program on my XP machine called Xentient labels, which have changed the windows explore interface so I could have any icon file or folder on any drive highlighted in any color I want, as with Macintosh. As a blind person it is very important to me and helps me organize and find things faster.
Can anyone recommend any software that could do this for Windows 7, please? Thanks for any help or advice!
There are FREE 3rd party applications for it. They look pretty cool and they are both FREE.
I tried one of them now (I have found no spyware or virus / trojans / malware)

Original title: Big Stick required
For many years, I used XP Professional. A few years ago, due to a scare, I added a password. The disc recently got upset and the machine wouldn't boot. The drive is now working as a slave on another PC, but now a number of files is not accessible. I tried xcacls.vbs to view permissions without success. Does anyone know a "big stick" to use in the circumstances, please?
You should be able to take possession of the problematic files...
.. then you should have access.
I recently bought a new computer and all implement transferred from the former. I password vista to win 8 and must have made a mistake in the transfer. I have a lot of double and triple. I was wondering if there was some program or something that will help me with this mess. Any info would be appreciated - JACK
