security permission are messed up


i've been having problems with folders sometimes i can't delete them saying i don't have permission when i'm the admin.

i did some research and used a program lockhunter to see what is locking the folder and it came up with svchost. it wouldn't unlock it though.

it seems that security permissions is messed up some how and i can't figure out how to fix it.

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Windows 7 is extremely paranoid - for good and for bad. I can only give you some aid, one is Take Ownership Add "Take Ownership" to Explorer Right-Click Menu in Win 7 or Vista - How-To Geek,

the other is Unlocker UNLOCKER 1.9.1 BY CEDRICK 'NITCH' COLLOMB

I've used them both. They work, don't work, work... you get the point? Best wishes. :)
thanks i will try them both!

your a dream thanks again!
