  • Today for some reason I cannot open Opera. I am getting an error that reads, "Can't open user file directory, because you lack sufficient privileges. You might want to contact the administrator of this machine." I am the only user on my computer so this administrator error is perplexing. I have uninstalled/ reinstalled the program and I am still getting this error message. Opera was working fine earlier today and I don't know why this permission error is happening. Any suggestions?

  • Did you try to restart your computer? Are you using an account with admin rights? Did you try to login into your OS again?

  • Did you made any change?

    Something similar appears to me when I copy my profile to Opera Install folder in C:/Program Files
    Using Take Ownership command fix the problem.
    You may use Ultimate Windows Tweaker, enable the option and apply it to your Opera profile or Opera install folder.
