Dealing with Access Denied
Here are three ways to deal with an "Access Denied" message. If you're comfortable with downloading something to help you work through these problems, skip to method three.
1. Right click on the file or folder you want to access and click on properties. Go to the security tab and click on edit. In the new window, make sure "Full Control" is checked. Click OK, click Apply, and you're done.
If that didn't work, or if you were prompted by even more access denied messages in the process, it's time to move onto the next step.
2. Again, right click the folder or file you want to access and click on properties. Once again, go to the security tab, but this time, click on Advanced. Go to the Owner tab and click Edit. In the new window, highlight your group. You'll probably be in the Administrators group. Be sure to check "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" and click OK. Click OK on any prompts that come up. You should now have access. If this didn't work, move on to method three.
3. In my opinion, this is the simplest solution for these issues. The downside is that it's an external method and you'll have to download this file. You can go ahead and open the zip file in Windows Explorer.
