    Win 10 permission issues, please help


    Hello All,

    I have win 10 on my PC
    I attached an external hard drive with win 7 on it
    I wanted to access "Documents and settings" so I ran (used) your reg file "Add_Reset_Permissions_to_context_menu.reg"

    I got access to the files I wanted and somehow my PC got corrupted, I really don't understand..

    I can't run Outlook or Firefox, but they can both launch wih administrator account.

    I tried a restore point on my PC which changed nothing...

    Can you please guide my to restore permission defaults on my own PC ?

    There are so many tips and solutions here, I'm extremely afraid now to touch anything unless I'm 1000% sure

    What exactly did change on my PC so Outlook not running correctly? Which folder? Registry Key?
    I've uninstalled firefox.. tried to re-install.... the installer hangs...

    Please help
    Thank you!!
