I've unticked all the appropriate boxes in the 'View' option but am still unable to access the 'System volume info' I get a message 'Access denied'when I d'click on it. Anybody know what I'm missing. I'm running W2Kpro but as the only user and I'm not on a network.
In w2k, there's not much to see inside that folder.
But anyway, to access it, log on with an account with Adm privileges, right click the folder, Properties, Security tab.
Click Add. Then scroll down to find your account name (currently logged on). Highlight it. Click Add. Click OK.
Back on the Security tab, in the Name box, highlight the newly added account name. In the Permissions box below, see whether the ticked options allow you to do what you want to do. The default ticks should do. If so, just click OK. Then double click the folder, and it should open.
When you're done with the folder, go back into the Security tab, highlight the added account name, and click Remove, click OK, to restore the previous config.
Temp003 Thanks for the info which worked for me, unfortunately it doesn't appear to be the system file I wanted to modify. The file I was looking for is the %systemroot%\inf file which according to MS is in the system folder. MS is a bit misleading as it says to look in Internet Explorer and click folder options. As far as I can see there is no folder option in IE. The knowledge base article is 259473 regarding audio CD error messages.
temp003. Thanks for that, it's just what I was looking for. Doesn't give one a deal of confidence in MS's knowledge base. If you read the article I mentioned you will see what I mean. I just hope the rest of it is accurate. Once again, thanks. Sil_ver
