I have made some changes to Trusted Installer last night on my windows 7 laptop and I'm nervous that I may have messed it up. I followed this article instructions.
Windows 7 – How to Delete Files Protected by TrustedInstaller
I did this because I just switched to Windows 7 and my Itunes kept giving me an error message saying that 'I did not have permission to perform this action'. I was simply trying to delete some songs from Itunes. I googled the problem and found lots of articles similar to the above.
Is it dangerous not to have Trusted Installer as the default owner in System32? Removing it certainly stopped me getting the Itunes error messages which were getting so annoying. Since I followed the above instructions, all now ‘seems’ to work fine but will potentially dangerous or nuicance programs now have access to my computer without any warning?
I changed ownership from Trusted Installer to myself, as main/only PC user. I also had the option of changing the role to the ‘administrator’ (myself also) but I just chose my ordinary username over admin. Would this make a difference?
Because I didn’t ‘Replace myself as owner on subcontainers and objects’ I got an ‘initial’ second message saying something like ‘there are more than one user commands and system may become unstable.
Is this an issue? Should I have changed subcontainers and object ownership it as per the advice in the above instructions? Should I have done nothing? Itunes now works perfectly and I am getting no more error messages since last night. Just worried about that initial message I got (on declining the change of subcontainers and object ownership) warning me that there was more than one command.
Can someone please answer this asap? I’m worried that the whole thing may crash. I have been warned on another Windows forum that I have made a huge error.
Can you advise,
