    Hi everybody,

    I was working on my computer security permission, and now I ended up with zero permission on most folder. I could not access control panel as it pop up "Restrictions- This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Pls contact your system administrator".

    Then I tried right click on the desktop --> personalized, i got the same error.

    I checked the security properties of my windows folder and i noticed,
    The user:
    CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM, Administrators, USERS, TRUSTED INSTALLER, does not have the Allow permissions checked anywhere. I tried running in safe mode and still could not get to check the permissions.

    I tried changing the permission in the Advanced Security Settings, I made the administrators and users to full control, and hit apply.
    Here i get another error:
    "An error occurred while applying security information to:
    c:\windows\avastSS.scr" access is denied. And many more other files.

    What should I do now?

    Hope to hear from windows experts. Maybe I can do something with the registry?

    Welcome to the forums.

    Try restoring the computer to before this happened.
