  • How can I remove permissions from my computer?

    Records keep saying access denied and I have to ask permission, but makes almost always ends up in the error message access denied can be more explicit in this folder, or it says I already have permission, but I still can't for the records. I want out of this so I never asked it again. It comes to my computer, I should be able to access any folder to be treated like a child. I know it's for safety, but his exaggerated in my opinion. I do not store anything on my computer anyway, nothing is ever safe on a computer no matter what. all my sensitive information are made on paper and enclosed in a water and sure fire proof. in any case, I need to have all this junk of permission removed from my computer. I installed the mail am client to test it out and computer e-mail messages stored in a folder that I can not enter. his application for leave and does not for me. said that I already took over ownership of the folder, but when I try to open it it said access denied you need permission from the Security tab.

    a greeting card for someone and installed inadvertently ask on my computer... toolbar and etc search engine.
    Problems following different instructions using websites

    According to what he has changed, there could be many places to watch. I suggest starting here:

    Open the Control Panel, uninstall a program. After the loading of the list, click on the column heading "installed on" to group infections, I mean additions by date. This can help the build-up of undisclosed items who snuck with some software that you have agreed to install. Some of them could have no other purpose than to make sure that it is difficult to remove Ask. Out as much garbage as possible here.

    Then, in Firefox, open the page of the modules using either:

    • CTRL + SHIFT + a
    • "3-bar" menu button (or tools) > Add-ons

    In the left column, click Extensions. Then, in case of doubt, disable (or delete, if possible) not recognized and unwanted extensions.

    Often, a link will appear above at least an extension disabled to restart Firefox. You can complete your work on the tab and click one of the links in the last step.

    That should remove the toolbar, but there could be some other settings that you want to restore, as your preferred search engine. To do this, I suggest using the icon on the left end of the integrated Firefox search bar.

    If you notice your settings changing between sessions - in other words, when exit you and restart Firefox, she returned to unwanted parameters - check a user.js file as described in this article: How to fix preferences that will not save.
