I am trying to put a new file in directory

x86_microsoft-windows-s..nboxgames-solitaire_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_74f3b07c5d008bde

located in windows\win\winsxs (whoever created such a name for a directory ought to be examined by a collection of shrinks!), because the original file(s) got corrupted (yes, this is the "security" provided by such systems!).

Then I get the message:

"Youi need permission to perform this action"

But wait a minute, I AM THE ADMINISTRATOR, I BOUGHT THIS COMPUTER, whose PERMISSION do I need to do what I want with MY MACHINE? How dare they? Has anybody ever seen such NONSENSE?

Thanks for any reply.

Excellent advice! Actually I have Linux running on another machine, and I used to be a UNIX bigot: I have in source form Version 7, System V (puah), and 2.8, 2.9. 2.10, 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 BSD - again in source. I keep an ancient PDP-11/34 with 128kb byte and a 30 Mb hard disk which I occasionally turn on to get some sanity back.
