    I recently purchased a venerable HP 8460p that came with Win Pro 7 installed and configured for User, hp. I want to change the user name to CAG. It is my understanding that to delete hp the System Administrator needs Special Permission. I am unable to access the setting for Special Permission.

    To obtain access to the Special Permissions, this is what I did;
    First, I right clicked on C:Users/hp and selected Properties.\, then clicked on the Securities tab, selected CAG and clicked on the Advance button. The screen Advanced Security Systems appeared. I clicked on the Effective Permissions tab, selected User name, CAG and clicked OK.

    I then clicked on the Owner tab and changed the name of C:Users/hp and clicked on the Permissions tab.

    In doing so I made sure for the object name A:/Users/hp that CAG had full control applied to all sub folders and files, inherited from parent was off and clicked on OK.

    I went back to the Security screen, selected CAG and clicked on Edit. I tried to check the Special Permisssions option but it was still not accessible.

    What do I nee to do to obtain permission t0 delete C:Users/hp?
