Windows 10: Issue with permissions on username folder?

    Issue with permissions on username folder?

    Hi guys,

    I have had this issue for a while.....No start menu, can't open some apps like the calculator....I have to ctrl/alt/del to get to shut down button.

    This is start to bug me so I went to dig a little.

    When I go to Windows/users I see:

    My username (not going say)

    If I right click properties on my username folder and look at the Security tab the permissions for SYSTEM and Administrators are all blank. For my user name I have everything ticked for allow with the execption of Special permissions.

    If I go to my Public folder and do the same the SYSTEM and Administrators are all checked to allow.

    The question is this. Do I need to edit the permissions in my username folder to allow for SYSTEM and Administrators. I want to check incase doing this will mess every thing up a bit more.

    BTW I can't do a screengrab.

    I hope someone can add some light to this issue.

    All the best

    Can some check their system for me to confirm this is normal.

    I felt the issue was odd. Thanks for confirming

    I'm now wondering why the settings are not ticked off...could it be a virus?
