Access rights denied after system restore

  Greengo 20:24 10 Oct 2008

I just used system restore and now some of the users on my PC can't access some of the programs on the system. It keeps coming up with the message " access denied you may not have sufficient permission" I have checked that all the users have full administrator rights, but I still keep getting the messages.

Just to note before I ran the system restore the other users had limited accounts

Any help would be much appreciated.

You could always restore it back again and see if that would sort it.

Did you run Windows "System Restore", or was it actually the PC's non-destructive "System Recovery", effectively a repair installation of Windows?

If the latter, you may now have to "take ownership" of the original folders & files to gain access, per this Microsoft article click here
