    Not sure when this started but I know it wasn't always like this...first of all, I don't get why if I am the "admin" of my computer, why I'm still denied access on certain things. It's causing little issues here and there, like I can't create a shortcut anywhere on the main drive, goes to desktop instead. Also,some programs I've installed have errors when creating files on that drive. Or like Wise Registry Cleaner, I got an access denied for whatever it was trying to do while backing up my registry. How do I stop all this from happening?

    Have you tried to become an owner of main drive and all directories/files (recursively)?

    I had a similar problem I had to run chkdsk c: /c /f and this clear my permissions problem on my system drive this was years ago.

    doh, once again I don't see the point of all these precautions since i'm on the admin windows account. It's gonna run after I restart in a sec.

    ok chkdsk ran fine, and just to test, I tried creating a shortcut of a few random files in different folders, wouldn't let me. UAC settings are disabled (never notify), i'm guessing maybe somewhere in services or policies section has to be changed? I don't mess with those much.

    turn it back on, Windows practically breaks these days with uac off.

    Found it. Googled 'missing Security tab File Explorer and was told to run gpedit.msc (I can never remember that file name):

    Odd thing is, contrary to what the description says, not configuring that setting still removed the tab for me. When I set it to disabled, it showed back up. I really hate windows updates. This last one a week or 2 ago for some reason set my mIRC settings/channels/notify list to default.

    Ok so TrustedInstaller is the owner of my main drive.

    Still doesn't make sense to me if I have all Allow Permissions checked, why I'm still hindered from doing things

    Change owner to you (recursively).

    os is going to need to be wiped, giving yourself access to all aspects of the drive is basically removing the systems ability to protect its own files from malicious modification.
