    Hi,

    If it was not an old issue then Permission factors can be sidelined for sure, otherwise you may have face those problems forever.

    Yet in case anything happend beyond your knowledge, which changed the permission for those acts, check the permission.

    Click on a file on desktop, Select Properties, Select Security, look for the permissions assigned here for the users and if found to have less change them to your requirment. exit.

    Check the whole system for any Virus present, or a Malware, even spywares create problems. Clean them thoroughly to be confident about no intervention from them.

    Thanks.

    Hi, Dear friend

    It might be the problem of Virus ...........So, first of all try to update your antivirus database and scan the total Hard Drive

    And then check if it helps ........and some times it happens with the Security permissions too.......so, try to check all the permissions about the Drives and respective files

    And if you have found any Os Related issue .....simply execute these and check if it helps

    First of all restart the PC ...and then press F8 key at the start up and log on to windows with SAFE MODE

    then insert the WINDOWS OS Original CD in to the ROM

    Then press windows key+R and type cmd and click OK

    then type sfc/scannow and press ENTER Key ....and wait for the completion of process ......and check if it helps

    and again if the same exists ..... simply restore the windows.........and get the solution for this issue

    Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
