1. 00:00:00:00 / 00:00:08:84 - hello this video is all about how to
2. 00:00:03:29 / 00:00:11:46 - actually use the file explorer to have
3. 00:00:08:84 / 00:00:14:66 - it run in admin mode administrator mode
4. 00:00:11:46 / 00:00:17:78 - so sometimes with upgrades
5. 00:00:14:66 / 00:00:20:75 - software installs maybe some corruption
6. 00:00:17:78 / 00:00:24:11 - with your operating system you're unable
7. 00:00:20:76 / 00:00:27:77 - to access certain folders or even your
8. 00:00:24:11 / 00:00:28:82 - cd-rom drive DVD Drive etc or maybe even
9. 00:00:27:77 / 00:00:33:86 - another hard disk
10. 00:00:28:82 / 00:00:36:53 - ok now that could be because of hardware
11. 00:00:33:86 / 00:00:39:44 - issues but it could also be because you
12. 00:00:36:53 / 00:00:42:60 - lose the administrator ability to log
13. 00:00:39:45 / 00:00:45:21 - into that I mean to access those stripes
14. 00:00:42:60 / 00:00:47:01 - so you might get an error message like
15. 00:00:45:21 / 00:00:49:92 - this you might get something totally
16. 00:00:47:00 / 00:00:53:21 - different what I have done I just tried
17. 00:00:49:92 / 00:00:57:17 - to demonstrate ok this is Explorer
18. 00:00:53:21 / 00:00:59:21 - running without admin mode and it will
19. 00:00:57:17 / 00:01:02:78 - not allow me to go into another folder
20. 00:00:59:21 / 00:01:09:85 - without giving getting admin rights now
21. 00:01:02:78 / 00:01:13:26 - I could try to run ok Explorer as
22. 00:01:09:85 / 00:01:16:73 - administrator ok but that will still not
23. 00:01:13:26 / 00:01:20:75 - work because basically the solution for
24. 00:01:16:73 / 00:01:23:69 - that is not as simple as a sense you'll
25. 00:01:20:75 / 00:01:28:04 - go into Windows you'll find Explorer
26. 00:01:23:70 / 00:01:32:07 - right down here somewhere ok and then
27. 00:01:28:04 / 00:01:34:54 - you right-click on that you go to run as
28. 00:01:32:06 / 00:01:37:85 - administrator yes
29. 00:01:34:54 / 00:01:40:11 - all lovely you think you've got Explorer
30. 00:01:37:85 / 00:01:44:39 - running as administrator now and then
31. 00:01:40:10 / 00:01:46:95 - you go back to the same thing and you
32. 00:01:44:39 / 00:01:49:76 - still get the error message so you see
33. 00:01:46:95 / 00:01:52:53 - so even the administrator version
34. 00:01:49:76 / 00:01:54:73 - doesn't quite work there are other
35. 00:01:52:53 / 00:01:58:34 - alternatives you could create a shortcut
36. 00:01:54:73 / 00:02:00:81 - ok for this create a shortcut and then
37. 00:01:58:34 / 00:02:02:41 - take in the advanced box run as
38. 00:02:00:81 / 00:02:05:34 - administrator that doesn't work either
39. 00:02:02:42 / 00:02:08:72 - the solution is you actually need to do
40. 00:02:05:34 / 00:02:12:46 - it in registry editor ok
41. 00:02:08:72 / 00:02:15:14 - so I'll just minimize this for now
42. 00:02:12:46 / 00:02:18:28 - and I'll show you what you need to do so
43. 00:02:15:13 / 00:02:20:08 - you type read edit and then you
44. 00:02:18:28 / 00:02:22:42 - right-click and then run it as
45. 00:02:20:09 / 00:02:25:09 - administrator and that'll open up the
46. 00:02:22:43 / 00:02:29:71 - registry editor what you need to do is
47. 00:02:25:09 / 00:02:33:40 - go down to this key it's quite a long
48. 00:02:29:71 / 00:02:36:31 - way down and it is basically in H hkey
49. 00:02:33:40 / 00:02:39:68 - classes root expand that go down then
50. 00:02:36:31 / 00:02:42:76 - you'll find app ID somewhere there you
51. 00:02:39:68 / 00:02:49:01 - go app ID then you need to go all the
52. 00:02:42:77 / 00:02:51:74 - way down to CDC okay and make sure it's
53. 00:02:49:00 / 00:02:53:84 - this one the full name must match
54. 00:02:51:74 / 00:02:57:59 - because there's another CDC as well okay
55. 00:02:53:84 / 00:03:01:84 - so that's that and the issue here is run
56. 00:02:57:59 / 00:03:04:12 - as this is the key for Explorer it's
57. 00:03:01:84 / 00:03:06:68 - running as just an interactive user and
58. 00:03:04:12 / 00:03:10:84 - it doesn't allow you to run as Explorer
59. 00:03:06:68 / 00:03:13:09 - so you can either rename this or delete
60. 00:03:10:84 / 00:03:15:65 - it the only problem is you cannot do a
61. 00:03:13:09 / 00:03:18:53 - quick delete even though you might be an
62. 00:03:15:65 / 00:03:21:95 - administrator okay you see unable to
63. 00:03:18:53 / 00:03:23:98 - leave all specified values so the key
64. 00:03:21:94 / 00:03:28:09 - for that is actually to right click here
65. 00:03:23:98 / 00:03:30:95 - and I would suggest just for good
66. 00:03:28:09 / 00:03:34:78 - measure okay that you export it first
67. 00:03:30:94 / 00:03:37:87 - and then give it a name backup okay and
68. 00:03:34:78 / 00:03:40:69 - then save it to for example desktop save
69. 00:03:37:87 / 00:03:43:54 - it there so you can always restore it so
70. 00:03:40:69 / 00:03:45:10 - we've done the wrist backup and now we
71. 00:03:43:55 / 00:03:48:83 - click over there click on permissions
72. 00:03:45:11 / 00:03:52:45 - and then following the same format as
73. 00:03:48:83 / 00:03:54:32 - many of our previous videos we would
74. 00:03:52:45 / 00:03:56:81 - want to add in here you can see
75. 00:03:54:31 / 00:03:59:78 - administrators is there and give it full
76. 00:03:56:81 / 00:04:03:22 - control you could give that click OK
77. 00:03:59:78 / 00:04:05:39 - access denied it doesn't allow it ok so
78. 00:04:03:22 / 00:04:10:28 - what we need to do is actually change
79. 00:04:05:38 / 00:04:19:66 - the owner from trusted installer change
80. 00:04:10:28 / 00:04:21:50 - it let's give our own name sometimes it
81. 00:04:19:66 / 00:04:25:21 - works sometimes you might need to type
82. 00:04:21:50 / 00:04:27:74 - it administrators ok that word
83. 00:04:25:22 / 00:04:29:81 - instead so check names it finds that
84. 00:04:27:74 / 00:04:32:75 - even though word in this administrator
85. 00:04:29:81 / 00:04:34:28 - replace owner on sub containers and
86. 00:04:32:75 / 00:04:41:52 - objects that's fine
87. 00:04:34:27 / 00:04:48:12 - click OK click OK and then open it again
88. 00:04:41:52 / 00:04:57:16 - let's click on advanced let's add
89. 00:04:48:12 / 00:05:01:69 - ourself in there there we go and give
90. 00:04:57:17 / 00:05:07:67 - ourselves four control click OK click OK
91. 00:05:01:69 / 00:05:10:55 - click OK now you'll see just click night
92. 00:05:07:67 / 00:05:15:65 - and I'm pressing the delete button it's
93. 00:05:10:55 / 00:05:18:43 - gone now we have our backup we've
94. 00:05:15:64 / 00:05:20:32 - changed this if you want to continue
95. 00:05:18:43 / 00:05:24:74 - running with the system I would suggest
96. 00:05:20:32 / 00:05:29:13 - you just return the owner from windows
97. 00:05:24:74 / 00:05:37:66 - ninja back to empty space service and
98. 00:05:29:13 / 00:05:42:06 - then it's back slash trusted install kit
99. 00:05:37:66 / 00:05:42:06 - check names let's find it that's fine
100. 00:05:42:12 / 00:05:47:00 - okay there we go
101. 00:05:44:20 / 00:05:48:94 - click OK that's just for a good measure
102. 00:05:47:00 / 00:05:53:83 - I'll just minimize this you could shut
103. 00:05:48:94 / 00:05:57:01 - it down now what I need to do is kill
104. 00:05:53:83 / 00:06:00:79 - the current Explorer version ok and I'm
105. 00:05:57:01 / 00:06:04:06 - gonna use tas kill space forge / I am
106. 00:06:00:80 / 00:06:05:94 - explored yet see in a command prompt run
107. 00:06:04:06 / 00:06:11:41 - as administrator how do I get there
108. 00:06:05:94 / 00:06:13:61 - basically CMD type in CMD and then right
109. 00:06:11:41 / 00:06:19:66 - click run as administrator and then you
110. 00:06:13:61 / 00:06:22:87 - get that so I am now in here and I'm
111. 00:06:19:66 / 00:06:25:43 - just going to press Enter so that's
112. 00:06:22:87 / 00:06:31:41 - terminated the current Explorer that I
113. 00:06:25:43 / 00:06:35:66 - now need to start it again explorer.exe
114. 00:06:31:41 / 00:06:38:41 - and that should happily start it up and
115. 00:06:35:66 / 00:06:39:49 - as you can see I now have the file
116. 00:06:38:41 / 00:06:45:94 - explorer
117. 00:06:39:49 / 00:06:48:13 - let's go to the same folder the one that
118. 00:06:45:94 / 00:06:52:90 - we couldn't access last time magically
119. 00:06:48:13 / 00:06:55:93 - we now have access to it okay so this is
120. 00:06:52:90 / 00:06:58:96 - one way that you can actually use File
121. 00:06:55:93 / 00:07:02:12 - Explorer in administrator mode to
122. 00:06:58:96 / 00:07:03:94 - actually gain access to things that get
123. 00:07:02:12 / 00:07:06:61 - locked off even though you might be
124. 00:07:03:94 / 00:07:08:38 - admin and you might find it very very
125. 00:07:06:61 / 00:07:12:28 - frustrating that you're unable to access
126. 00:07:08:38 / 00:07:15:97 - things okay I'll just close all these
127. 00:07:12:28 / 00:07:17:68 - things down these commands should be in
128. 00:07:15:97 / 00:07:20:83 - the description so you can just copy and
129. 00:07:17:68 / 00:07:21:86 - paste them if you do want to restore
130. 00:07:20:83 / 00:07:24:99 - your registry
131. 00:07:21:86 / 00:07:28:52 - I would suggest clicking back on that
132. 00:07:24:99 / 00:07:29:96 - just double click on it click yes that's
133. 00:07:28:51 / 00:07:32:68 - sad are you sure you wish to continue
134. 00:07:29:95 / 00:07:35:31 - click yes the keys and have been
135. 00:07:32:68 / 00:07:38:36 - successfully added if we go back there
136. 00:07:35:31 / 00:07:41:81 - you'll see our runners has been put back
137. 00:07:38:36 / 00:07:45:37 - and the things are nice and happy back
138. 00:07:41:81 / 00:07:47:41 - to original situation there is also
139. 00:07:45:37 / 00:07:50:33 - another video we have which is basically
140. 00:07:47:41 / 00:07:54:50 - called repair install the link should be
141. 00:07:50:32 / 00:07:57:40 - in our description and that is a nicer
142. 00:07:54:50 / 00:08:01:12 - method to actually repair faults and
