Yeah, it does. This new laptop, is it brand new or a corporate refurb?

I ask because I could tell something was amiss when you couldn't see App Data, even though your Explorer settings were correct. Someone has made a pig's ear of the Advanced Security Permissions here and blocked 'Modify' (which is why you can't overwrite) but left 'Write' and 'Delete' with full permissions.


It’s a refurb. Only paid $200 for it. Yea, there seems to be a lot of screwy things with this laptop. Taken me a couple of days to get it set up so I could use it if I had to.

Advanced Security Permissions in Windows or Firefox?

Windows.


This may be the wrong forum to ask this question, but how do you find the “Advanced Security Permissions” in Windows? This is Win 7 Professional.

Hi,
I've found that it's usually best to go to the Horse's Mouth for these types of Q?'s.

If "Brink" hasn't included it, then.....a search may bring a result.
