Here's the key to making it work. If Apply is grayed-out, check a box in the Deny column. It will then bring up Apply.
Check a box in the Allow column. It should check all of the boxes except the last one and uncheck all of the boxes in the Deny column.
- Click Apply. It should run a scan of the files in the drive. When the scan is finished, click Ok. The first box should still be open.
- In the first window, click on Users (your computer name-PC\Users) and repeat steps 5-9, of course clicking on Users (your computer name-PC\Users) instead of Administrators (your computer name-PC Administrators). NOTE: You may not have to click in the Deny column after the first scan is completed for step 10 as indicated in step 7.
