Date: 16 Dec 2015   Posted By: suraj     Group: Computers    Category: Programming   

Some days ago, I have installed Windows 8 and made one folder secure, from properties-security-edit-user-edit-deny all (by applying v sign).
Then I installed windows 8.1 but now I can't open that folder. The tab on screen is like "you must have read permission to view the properties of this object"

Try this out,
Go to the folder properties > edit > add > advanced (bottom left) > Find Now

You will the user names of your computer on search results.
Select the present user name which your are presently logged in and click ok> ok(again)
On permissions window select the appropriate permissions do you like on the "allow" check boxes or else you can choose full control as checked in the 'allow'
finally ok.
Now your folder or file must be opened. If not check the user is correct or not.

To remove password:

Under hidden files and folder headings select "Show hidden files and folders".

Uncheck the "Hide protected operating system files (recommended)" option.

Click Apply then Ok.

Delete "win_mpwd_sys.dat" from C:\program data, C:\users\vortex\appdata\local, C:\windows (in x86) and C:\windows\syswow64 (in x64).
