    2. Click Locations, select your computer name in the Locations dialog box, and then click OK to return to the Select Users or Groups dialog box.
    3. Type Network Service in the Enter the object names to select box, and then click Check Names.
    4. Click OK to close the Select Users or Groups dialog box.
  6. Click NETWORK SERVICE under Group or user names, and then click to select the Allow check box for Full Control under Permissions for NETWORK SERVICE.
  7. Click OK to close the folder Properties dialog box.
