Thanks, but that did not work. That is because I have:
C:\>dir /q c:\
Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 2815-9B6A
Directory of c:\
18/04/2006 11:29 DIR BUILTIN\Administrators vedit
10 File(s) 20,615,967 bytes
18 Dir(s) 4,877,590,528 bytes free
That will because (sorry) I have changed the “default owner” setting on my computer to “Administrators group”.
