I have Vista Home Premium. I'm trying to access the file Revert.wmz, a skin for Windows Media Player, which is obviously damaged in some way, but I cannot delete it or substitute it with a 'healthy' copy as I dont' have privileges, even though I am the administrator (and only user) of my pc. Apparently I don't have 'special privileges', but how am I to go about obtaining them??!! I'd be grateful if someone could kindly explain, in simple terms, the basics of administrators' privileges, as I have an Italian version of Vista and cannot understand clearly the explanation given in Italian. Thanks, Florio
Boot into Safe Mode 'Command Prompt' and rename it in there if you can. I wouldn't delete it in case it causes more havoc with it missing. Then reboot and see what happens when the file is not available.
Another route worth trying is to download the free utility "UnLocker" if this can't release the file then it will tell you if it's locked out or not.
I've followed all of the above suggestions; even going into safe mode and usking "Unlocker" have yielded no results. How do I go about getting permission for Full Control as Administrator (sounds simple enough, but I just cannot understand what I'm meant to be doing since I have an Italian edition of Vista). Florio
