comment Removed Network card from Device Manager (without Driver uninstall) now Windows wants driver Reinstal
Essentially, my Hyper-V config had problems because the virtualised network switched I'd configured stopped working (for some reason), causing my Virtual Machines to not start up. To fix this, i figured i'd setup a second virtual switch, but after 1hour+ of Windows 8.1 "configuring", i (stupidly) did a forced restarted. Following a restart, i had NO network connectivity, not from Ethernet or Wi-Fi. I tried a few things, but nothing worked. Found online someone had similar issues, and uninstalling network devices (in paragraph 2 above) fixed it So yes,s this is what how i got myself in this

comment WINDOWS: Taking Back/Restoring Default Ownership Permissions of directory
@SEARAS: Genius! Its running now, but i can already access the directory! thanks so much, has this solution not been in a comment, I'd mark it a resolved :) One thing though, I take it this will make the directory accessible on any device?

comment WINDOWS: Taking Back/Restoring Default Ownership Permissions of directory
SEARAS, I cannot change any permissions as I'm not the owner. I'm assuming this is because the sub-folder has a specified owner (my user account on my previous PC), whereas normally no owner is defined allowing anyone to change permissions?
