    Checking access permission for Windows Live Mail and Temp folder in Windows 7

    The applications in my PC running on Windows 7 have lost the privileges for Administrator. This affects the functioning of Windows Live Mail and Acrobat Reader. The former application canít compose messages and the latter one canít create temporary files. It is also not possible to write into ĎUsersí folder. My brother told me that this may happen due to accession permission issue. I need to check the access permission for both Windows Live Mail and Temp folder for confirming it. How can I do that?

    In the case of Temp folder, first press the ‘Start’ button. Go to the bottom part of the start menu afterwards and type cmd into the search field available over there. Then, press the ‘Enter’ key and wait until the black command prompt window pop up on the screen. Once you can view this window, type set temp into it and hit the ‘Enter’ key. The access permission will be displayed on the window after that. To check the permission for WLM folder, you need to open the folder first and click the ‘Tools’ option. A menu will pop up on the screen afterwards from which click the ‘Options’ option. Then, navigate into Advanced -> Maintenance and make a single click on ‘Store Folder’ option for viewing the access permission.
