    hey all,

    Bit of a prob here. i did have 2000 pro but, i recently upgraded to XP pro.
    now every time I try to remove or add any software I get this 1926.... here is the message from my last error:

    "Error 1926. Could not set file security for file 'C:\Config.Msi\'. Error: 5. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to modify the security permissions for this file."

    Am I running parellel OS's? Unfortunatly I have taken my PC for granted and I am extreamly reliant on it for school. Don't know what id do without your help, Thank you! James Sterling

    Persmissions? How are you logged on?
    Also config.msi should be a hidden directory - does it exist on your system? If not, try creating it and then setting the permissions appropriately.

    I don't think I know how to "Give the local Administrators group or the Everyone group FULL access to the root of C:\." Thanks for your time JS

    I don't know if config.msi exists or not. I suppose im not so good at this stuff. How do I find it, or look for it. I could never find many Easter eggs, hehe. Any info you can give would greatly be appriciated, Thank you very much for your time. JS

    I am logged on as the administrator, that's why it's confusing, because it's my pc and I've always had full control........ Thanks JS
