Why can’t I set permissions in Windows XP while in safe mode?
Question by Brian Lawrence /

I am using Windows XP. I have recently run into a problem after trying to set my permissions in safe-mode, never had this problem before. After changing my settings so that I would have full control on all partitions and drives I’m not able to:

1] copy/paste
2] drag/drop
3] Start services in services.msc (Many stopped that were running)
4] Minimized items no longer show in selected/taskbar
5] Windows Installer does not function
6] System restore will not run

I can still surf and do main tasks, the above are what I have that don’t run the way they did.
