Vista Tips Videos

Recommended Posts

Heres something to try .See if the takeown button will work on these.Can you Takeown these files? Or the files in the System Volume Information folder?

C:WindowsSystem32LogFilesWMIRtBackup

EtwRTDiagLog.etl

EtwRTEventLog-Application.etl

EtwRTEventlog-Security.etl

EtwRTEventLog-System.etl

EtwRTMsMpPsSession.etl

Also on the video 3 it has your gmail address & what is probably your name.

The flip 3D looked interesting but didn't get exactly how to do it.

MttFrog13 ;The videos are good & helpful.I just wanted to let you know Vista doesn't let anyone takeown a few of its files.

I have worked around both the SVI folder & the files above but not with takeown.

At your own risk & please check these out before you use them.From an administrator command prompt.

The Vista drive for example C:>

This is safe at command prompt type icacls c:  This just gives some information about permissions.

These are for advanced users:

WARNING !!!

TAKEOWN /F * /A /R /D Y 

then

icacls * /grant:r Administrators:F /T /C /L

Again WARNING !!!

Please gather more information before using these.I had to call MS & reactivate after using them but I now have administrator permissions for almost everything in my Vista.& I don't use UAC.

It's a sticky ? seems like Vista is dead and gone, I still think it's win 7 or XP ,sure support

for X p is now buried , but I support computers running win M.e , ( win 9x ) and got a free customer on 98,

and doing OK ( silver surfer), her computer is a Stapes 750 Mhz, she 89 y , she uses email for family across the world

and my Numero Uno customer , and still on 56k dial up , but she can still type faster than me ,

I am kinda thinking is anyone still on Vsta? or is it a clear cut fight betweem XP and 7 ,?

maybe a poll is needed ,?

win 98

win M.e ,( never had a problem with it )

XP

Vista ( makes me think of visit but ain't staying )

Win 7

or are you a mac fan ? ,far to rich in this dog eat dog world ,

BTW I started out with win 3.,1 ,and no I dont want to go back icon_biggrin.gif

I've got a pole for Vista. It's called Linux. It clears that Vista right out of the machine in one clean swipe.
