Hello,
Today,I made a huge mistake in changing the User Account Control Permissions for the C drive .I have a 2007 Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop.It's operating system is Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit.Now I can't access the C drive at all.I can't make any changes to the User Account permissions.I get a box saying "Access Denied" for any attempt to change either.What can I do to restore the User Account Control permissions the way it was?

Hi spookypeep,

Welcome to TSG. :)

You can try the following:

System Restore
  • Press and hold the Windows key + R on your keyboard.
  • In the Run box, type rstrui.exe and hit Enter.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to restore your computer to a date before the issue(s) started.

Hi,
I just tried it,and a box came up saying," C\Windows\system32\rstrui.exe The Parameter is Incorrect". I've been getting that box all the time since I made the mistake.

How did you change User Account Control for the C drive ? As I understand it, UAC applies to the whole system.
