I am having problems getting security set up on my laptop.

Resolved Question:

I am having problems getting security set up on my laptop. It uses VISTA Home Edition.

I have 2 User groups assigned - SUE, RON. SUE is the administrator of the PC. I want to create a folder that only RON can see and use.

So, I signed in as RON, created a folder and went to Properties, Security, and selected USERS(Sue-PC/Users) and hit DENY under Permission for Users. Now the folder (MembersK) is not accessible by any signon (SUE or RON) and cannot be deleted.

So, here is what I need:
1) Help me delete MembersK (since it is useless as it sits)
2) I signed on as RON and created a new folder - Membersron, but I don't know how to set up security so RON can see and update Membersron, but SUE cannot see or update the folder.

I would think that under Permissions for Membersron, I would see:
Everyone, SYSTEM, Administrators, and Users SUE and RON. Unfortunately, I don't see both Users - I see only Users(SUE-PC\Users). So, if I do what I did for MembersK and hit Deny for all options, I will (like above) make Membersron unaccessible to either User group.

Hi, I will assist,

I'm sorry about the issue. Security permissions is a complicated issue. Can we do a screen sharing session, so I can chat with you help you directly?

Thank you

Yes, but I have to log onto the laptop. I'm on my desktop. How do I sign on to my laptop and get in touch with you again?

Go to your email on the laptop, then open the email message from JustAnswer / Viet ... on your laptop, then you can get back to me via this web page on the laptop.

I went to my laptop, went to my email, found your email and hit the link (from my laptop). Now it says it is 'Waiting for the other party'. I guess that is you. Please answer my request from ScreenConnect.
