My System Specs

Default Win 7 Home --Can't Change Permissions error--Solved

Well, I figured it out after walking away for awhile (funny how that is) the answer was not complicated...just several exact steps wherein it is far too easy to misstep IMO. Need sleep, but I might post a detailed step by step guide later with pics if others are interested. Was somewhat baffled that I could not find such a guide myself.

Titles sums it up.

Can't change permissions even with built in Admin account.

Properties, Security, Change Permissions, Edit what I want, Apply and I get this.....

And I have this strange error/user--

Error unknown user.PNG

My Google-Fu is failing me on this one, lots of of ppl talking about it, but no answers that I could find.

Help? Do not want to do a Full System Restore
