In a Vista Home Premium, I recently had to change a user account's name and permission level to administrator, (The account was the only one named OWNER, It was the default account, and somehow was only a standard user, NOT administrator.) By way of changing the name from owner, to now (Joe) and permission level from Standard to administrator, it seems now I cannot open some of his previously made folders and files, despite giving the new Joe administrator account all permissions, and access I still cannot open them, especially from shortcuts. I believe I may have to "take ownership" of these files that were originally created by the "OWNER" account, but not sure of the exact procedure. Any Suggestions are deeply appreciated.. Thanks..
