    Suggestion:
    1) Get Microsoft's Media Creation Tool
    2) Save Windows 10 to a USB device
    3) Restart the computer and load from the USB device and select the Repair option

    You can ask others for more clarification on this whole process.

    Hmh.. okay. Assuming you can load up the computer and try to double click C:\ and get Access Denied, then the third reply is the best solution. As a matter of fact, I have created a custom selection in the right-click menu to "Take Ownership". This force grants me to be the owner of every subfile/folder that I do this on. (Be aware that this is a Custom command that I added; you do not have this in your menu)

    Wish there was a take ownership on mine but there isn't it there. but thank you for the suggestion

    Yea, thank you for responding to that post =)

    I was waiting for you to ask about it. Yet there may be some risk to it, since if you do that to C:/
    You will force everything to be yours, even though "SYSTEM" wouldn't like that.

    I have a Registry file that can add that to your menu. Yet if you want to use this file, you MUST make sure to type the corrections in the file.

    You MUST know the exact name of your account name.

    1) Download the .reg file and save on Desktop
    2) Right click -> Edit
    3) Using Ctrl+F to find, find Admin and replace it with your account name (is your account name 1 word?) There are 8 entries for Admin, replace them all. (It would sound strange to replace those because they're called Admin, yet that is my account name I made, i called it Admin)
    4) Save the file
    5) Double click the file -> Yes -> OK
    6) Right click C:/ and select that
    7) It will take time, double click C:/ a few second later, hopefully it will let you open that first tree of folders.

    Add 'Take Ownership' To The Context Menu (Applies To Accounts Named 'Admin').reg
