    I have the same entries on my system for the "C:\Windows" folder, so they appear to be default.

    The same story on other folders (e.g Program Files , Program Files x86 too, etc) System twice, Administrators twice as well, ....
    Then, it looks like this is the default.

    I appreciate it,

    It looks like you are back to default then. Great news.

    I now have a folder that I copied to another folder and I can't delete the original folder because I don't have permission.
    This has happened once a few months ago and I can't remember what I did to resolve it.

    I have tried all your methods, but I am stuck with the message "You do not have permission to view or edit this object's permission settings."

    I think the permission settings got scrambled in doing the copy as other operations were taking place. Any way to fix this with your techniques of do I need to do an off-line cleanup?

    Hello bottomcritter, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    If you like, you could try using the Take Ownership context menu below on the folder, and see if you are able to delete it afterwards.

    That was a quick response! And I like your suggestion of adding the context menus, I could have used them in the past for other problems I had, so I downloaded them.

    Anyway, I got the problem resolved by using LockHunter, a little utility that will delete the folder/file, even though it was not locked. It requires a reboot, but that was a minor issue since I had already spent all afternoon trying to fix the permissions.

    Thanks much!
