Error "you don't have permission to access \\Mike-PC\c. Contact your network administrator to request access." When you try to access a computer on the network

Original title:

There are three computers in my office. Both run Windows 7 Edition Home Premium and the third is running Windows 7 Professional.
I am trying to allow access to files on the computers of Home Premium. I go to 'Network' and open the other computer, but he said "You are not allowed access. \\Mike-PC\c contact your network administrator to request access." I went to Mike-PC computer to 'Share' this folder then joined the homegroup even / working group and everything in 'Advanced sharing' in the 'network and sharing Center', but it does still not activated.

The Professional Windows 7 computer successfully ' "shared folders and the other two computers can read / write files, but not the other way around.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



1 are these computers using a homegroup or working group?

2. were you able to share files earlier?

3 have had it all changes to computers, before the show?

Method 1:

Refer to the suggestion provided by Jack MVP on January 25, 2011, in the following link.

Method 2:

Disable the firewall and security software and check.

Note: Runs the computer without antivirus software or firewall is a potential threat to the computer; don't forget to activate the security software after completing the troubleshooting steps and after you have identified the problem.

  • Error: "you don't have permission to access this folder. ' Click on continue having access to this folder continuously ".

    Original title: cannot access files on a folder on the drive hard usb after you have turned off sharing on a network.

    About a week and a half, I have set up my external hard drive usb to share on my network domestic as well as my brother could access some files on his laptop computer.  I've been playing with the security of some of the files on the hard drive and made sure that he could not access some of them.  I don't remember exactly what I did unfortunately.  After I had changed the security access, I was still able to access all files and my brother could not access it.  He got the files on the hard drive and I turned off my computer.  A few days later, I tried to access the files that I had limited and I was stuck.  When I went back in the drive to recover some files, I received an error "you don't have permission to access this folder.  Click on continue to have access to this folder permanently. "When I click on continue that another dialogue box comes up saying"you refused permission to access this folder.  To access this file you will need to use the Security tab. "I click on the link to Security tab and another dialog box appears asking"to continue, you must be an administrative user with permission to view this object's security properties.  Do you want to continue? "I'm obviously the administrator because I have this computer and I'm the only account on it.  From this point, I don't know what I do or what I'm supposed to do to recover my files.  I played a bit with a couple of things and I was able to get into certain folders, but its an extremely long process that I don't have the time for.  A side effect of which in fact so I can see the files, is that for any movie file, I try to access it, I get an error.  When I try to open it with Windows Media Player, I get the error "Windows Media Player cannot access the file.  The file may be in use (which is not the case), you won't have access to the computer where the file is stored (which is not supposed to because the computer on which it is stored my personal computer), or your proxy settings are may not be not correct (what?). "If I try to use another program like VLC media player, I get a similar problem where an error comes up saying that it was impossible to access the file.  I can see the file and see the properties but I am unable to actually see the film.  I can't move the file anywhere because I don't have administrative rights.  I'm under Windows 7 Ultimate, and if someone could help me please, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Ridley,

    I see that this problem is old enough but you (or others) may have problems with it. Here's what I did:
    -Got to your hard drive and right click on the folder that is causing all the trouble.
    -Click on properties.
    -Click on the Security tab
    -Then click on advanced
    -You will see a window with a few user names. Now click on owner in the tabs above.
    -Click on edit, then select the user name you want to open the folder and don't forget to tick the box that says "Replace the owner of subcontainers and objects", then click on apply.
    A pop will come which says something like "You have replaced the property for the selected records" or something in this way. It worked for me and I hope this post is helpful for some people.

  • Forbidden - you don't have permission to access on this server

    Recently, I cloned git a customer Web site and I need to work on that, but when I try to open it via mamp or ampps a message appears:

    Forbidden you don't have permission to access the 'websitename"/application/index.html on this server.

    I did extensive research and everyone says to change the permissions on httpd.conf , but nothing happened. I tried to reinstall and nothing more. If I navigate through the terminal in the folder of the Web site, I have all the permissions.

    Does anyone have a solution?

    It is difficult to understand your configuration, but you try to run the web site locally? If so, the url is localhost/websitename/application/index.html or whatever the path to the root of your document...

  • "You don't have permission to access to" a computer - Windows 7

    Now, I have 3 laptops in my house.  We're on Windows 7 (let's call it W7) and two are on Vista (we'll call V1 and V2).  On my Windows 7, I can connect (via the network - all PC use the same Linksys wireless router) v1 without problem and see shared files, but I can't connect to V2.  I get the message "you don't have permission to access \\PCName."  Now if I put in place a different id user on W7, I can access the V1 and V2.  I need to stick with my original if possible user id, because this is where I've already implemented a large number of programs that I need for work.

    Any ideas on what could be going on with my original user id?  He worked two weeks ago, although I added a few programs as I finally tried access V2.  Thank you!

    You can 'stick with your original user "; just add it to the machine of V2. See point c below for more details:

    Problems sharing files between computers on a network are usually caused by 1) a misconfigured firewall or a firewall neglected (including a dynamic firewall in a virtual private network); or (2) inadvertently run two firewalls such as the firewall of Windows and a third-party firewall. and/or (3) do not have accounts to the same users and passwords on all computers in the workgroup. (4) tries to create actions where the operating system does not.

    In Windows 7, go to control panel > everything in Control Panel > network and sharing Center. Click on "change the advanced sharing settings. You don't want to use the residential group unless you have all Windows 7 machines. If you do and you want to use the homegroup, see Windows 7 Help & Support. Otherwise, in sharing advanced:

    Discovery of plug in the network
    Open the files and printers sharing
    Turn on the sharing section Public folder sharing
    Plug the password protected sharing

    A. configure the firewall on all machines to allow traffic to local area network (LAN) as being approved. With the Windows Firewall, turning on window file sharing and printer as the above will take care of that for you. If you are not running a third-party firewall or you have an antivirus/security with its own firewall component program, then you're fine.  With a third-party firewall, I usually set up the allocation of LAN with an IP address range. E.g. would be - Obviously you would substitute your correct subnet. Refer to the safety of any third party program or the user forums for how to correctly configure its firewall. Do not run more than one firewall. DON'T STOP FIREWALLS; CONFIGURE THEM CORRECTLY.

    (B) to facilitate the Organization, put all computers in the same workgroup. This is done from the System applet in Control Panel, the computer name tab.

    C. create the counterpart of the user accounts and passwords on all machines. You do not need to be logged into the same account on all machines and assigned to each user account passwords can be different; accounts/passwords just need to exist and to match on all machines. DO NOT NEGLECT TO CREATE PASSWORDS, EVEN IF ONLY OF SIMPLE. If you want a machine to boot directly to the desktop (a particular user account) for convenience, you can do this:

    Start > Search box > type: netplwiz [Enter]
    Click continue (or provide an administrator password) when you are prompted by UAC

    Uncheck "users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Select a user account to connect automatically by clicking on the account you want to highlight and press OK. Enter the password for this user account (when it exists) when you are prompted. Leave blank if there is no password (null). MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • You don't have permission to access \\pc name...

    I created a new user on a 3rd computer we have in our head office.  The printer we have is connected to my computer.  It is shared with the new user, the former user on the same computer, and another user on another computer.  The old user and the other computer can access the printer, no problem.  The new user can not because it doesn't have the permission to access by computer.  When I click on 'Network' to connect so it can connect, it never gives me the command field to enter name of user and password.  It gives me just the error message not having permission.  At the same time, when I click on another computer connected to the network, I received the name/authorization of the user box.  What is the difference and how to fix this?

    Thank you.

    I restarted from two computers and it works now.

    Nothing happens when you try to access the IP address of my computer from another computer.


    In addition... instead to access the name of the PC or computer, try the IP address (which you get by running the command ipconfig/all from the computer on which you want to access), for ex... \\192.168.1.X

    Please post an update.

  • I have a music library of about 7.6 GB.  I have an old nano iPod which has a capacity of 8.0 GB. When I try to sync my library on the nano it accepts only about 1.68 GB.  How can I fix?

    I have a library of about 7.8 GB of songs iTunes music.  I have an iPod nano to 8.0 GB.  When I try to sync my music on the iPod the IPod does accept that about 1.68 GB.  I tried to restore and re-synchronization-the same results.


    Are all your songs stored locallyin your computer's iTunes library?  iTunes cannot sync the songs that are accessed by streaming from Apple servers ("iCloud").  To check, find a song that does not sync your iPod to your iTunes library.  Do a right click and get information.  On the tab of the file Info window, browse to the location.  This site shows a path of the file to the location the file of that song on your drive, or should I say iCloud?  Expressed the iCloud, download it.

    If this is the General reason why much of the music library will not sync to the iPod, you can select the pieces all affected at the same time, right-click on the selection and download.  Once all the music files are stored locally, they sync to iPod.

    If this is not the cause of your problem, thanks for posting back with all additional details, such as any error message that appears when you attempt to sync.
