Resolving Permission Issues When Installing Software in Windows 10 | HP Computers | HP

This video shows how to resolve permission issues when you are installing software in Windows 10. Follow these steps when you need to complete
an action that requires administrative permissions. First type file explorer into the search bar, then click File Explorer. Click This PC in the left column to view Devices
and drives. Right-click the hard disk icon where your
operating system is installed, then click Properties in the drop down menu. Click Security, then click Advanced. In the lower left corner, click Change Permissions. A list of all the user accounts available
on your computer displays. Select the user account you want to use, then
click Edit. Under Basic permissions, check the box next
to Full control, then click OK. Now you have permissions to enable the
software installation. You can find additional helpful videos at

    1) Don't EVER instruct novice users to change permissions on their installation disk root.
    2) Don't take the SYSTEM account as an example. It's not a user, and you have to know goddamn well what you're doing when fiddling with its account.
    3) Using fake mashups of windows instead of a realscreencast looks unprofessional.

    Excuse me,but I have a problem,basicly theres one particular program called Restore RX I dunno If anyone has ever heard of it but basicly it restore any changes that you did on your computer although there is a way to unistall it but heres the deal,my pc is being blocked by everything.I can install (download) softwares but I cant install them because I need Administrators permission in order to do so.No,I cant change system settings at all basicly possibly the only way to do it is to download ISO image burn it into my USB and then…reinstall Windows 8,thats possibly the only way but either then that stupid Restore RX program is gonna probably change everything back to normal as it was at first…so basicly when I think of it my computer is inpenetrable…but still Im asking if anyone could help me.
