    Win10 no file or drive security options


    This problem has come up again I donít know whatís up with it, when you go to properties and check file security itís not there preventing me from resetting or changing permissionís. Not sure if these is the reason Ifranview keeps getting uninstalled or if that was happening before it.

    Kaspersky and Malware bytes is on it so malware and viri should not easily get to muck it up I am starting to think my uncles computer hates sleep mode and its fouling data up..

    Are updates known to cause this issue or is it just more likely to be data corruption from not being shut off correctly? Scan disc does not seem to find any issuesÖ.

    You can change the permissions on just about any folder or file, unless it is a Windows process or is in use, so, if you don't know what you are doing, then don't change permissions.
    Ifranview should not uninstall, but your security software may have a false positive that this program is a virus. You can go to your security software and look at the logs to see if it is Quarantined, you can mark this program as Safe and to Restore it in your security software.

    It passes the scan tests, I put ifran view on it months ago so I can print stuff out since win10 has a worse print system than 8. I don't use that computer alot but it gets used 2-4 times a week for surfing and printing by others, I just noticed for the 2nd time this year it ate security options so I cna;t change any folders or files permissions, Ifan is stuck in permissions limbo and won't even work now . Last time it did that I had to reinstall due since it even effected other profiles. I've not checked to see if its a profile issue or not this time around but i want to try and run down as to whats causing this, I'll try uninstalling kaspersky and malware bytes after I test a new profile. But this all seems vaguely familiar IE when windose gets file/registry corruption from bad sleep mode or shut down stuff.

    Also with win10 screwing over updates 3 or 5 times now was wondering if that could cause it since the update bugs have resulted in a whole new problem every time its cropped up.

    Hello Lee,

    When you say "when you go to properties and check file security it’s not there", do you mean the "Security" tab is not there or it's just blank?

    If you like, I have these context menus that you could add and use for now to reset and change permissions until this gets sorted.
