    Won't install USB drivers

    When I plug in a USB stick into a toshiba c850 win 7 laptop, it fails to install the drivers stating access is denied.
    I can't also remove the USB hub from within device manager as access is denied. Can't edit the registry as guess what "access denied"
    Permissions seem screwed here and It's starting to look like a rebuild unless anyone has a fix?

    Do you adminstrator permissions? If not you may need to find the person that does as it sounds like this has been majorly locked down.

    Make another local admin account and use that one.

    I've decided to use a recovery disk. Saves messing around.
