    I encrypted the "C:\users\" directory in Windows 7 and then found that I had a problem logging in as another users. This is probably becuase it could not access the files within there as the other user was not allowed.

    So I now know that I should have only encypted the folder in "users" who I had logged in as. I have tried to decrypt the whole folder "C:\users\" and get an error. "An error occurred applying attributes to the file: C:\users\default
    the specified file is read only"

    I have tired making the folder default not read only but that does not work.

    Any help would be very much appreciated. I hope I havent completely messed up my install!!
