Windows 10: Ownership of Windows and its files don't agree and very confused

  1.    4 Weeks Ago #1

    Ownership of Windows and its files don't agree and very confused


    I had a Win 10 Prof desktop made for me. It has several SSDs, along with one designated at as Scratch Disk and another designated for all virtual memory. When it was built the techs forgot one thing: I wasn't the Admin of my own computer. For testing purposes they had made themselves the Admins and didn't set it back. We supposedly worked it out via phone support but I keep running into files on Drive C, usually in Windows,. for which I don't have all the permissions.

    Over the last year whenever I didn't have permission I made myself the owner and I now understand that was probably foolish for long term stability. The last Windows update showed many problems in the event log because it couldn't find files, permissions etc. It did finally complete.

    I would like to set Windows permissions so that they are in agreement with one another, allow update access and allow me full access.

    Present situation:
    I am the only Administrator and the only listed user. I am the only user.
    Drive C is owned by me and I have full control with no special permissions
    Group User Names Drive C: Authenticated Users, System, Administrators Pname of computer,
    My name Pname of computer, Users Pname of computer
    I have all permissions - no special permissions
    I am the owner of Drive C and the Admin badge is next to my name

    Although I am the owner and have permissions for C: Windows\System, I am unable to change any permissions.

    Windows\System 32 and Windows\SysWOW64
    I am the owner of both folders with all permissions - no special permissions.

    Once again, although I am the owner of both folders and have full permissions - no special permissions - I cannot make an changes and get the following errors
    An error occurred while applying security information to:

    C:\Windows\System32\%LOCALAPPDATA%

    apply the correct permission settings immediately.

    I think and hope that if I knew how to set up ownership and permissions within the Windows folder I would no longer have these difficulties. I would very much like to avoid doing a full installation of Windows or the kind of repair where you lose many of your programs. I did run dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth,
    sfc: /scannow and
    chkdsk /scan. All came back saying it's ok.

    I would greatly appreciate help to straighten this out and hopefully a better understanding of how the security works - or is designed to work. If registry editing is involved I'm ok with doing that.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know how many programs you have installed on your computer, but it may be easier to re-install.

    Thanks for suggesting it but in my case it would really be a nightmare. I do photo editing and work in the medical field. I'd say I have 7 or 8 photo editing programs, each with presets and lots of created preferences. Then I have a database of notes that I also need to use for electronic billing. There's a gaming mouse with lots of preferences (I use it for photo work). And this is just the very major stuff.

    I may have to reinstall but I'll try everything else first.
