One of the things that needs full control is labeled as System. Does System also have Read and Write Permissions? System relates to your Operating System - How Windows deals with files and folders. How to add System and the Read and Write Permissions to the Permissions lists (if they are not already there) is another one of those complicated procedures that will get screwed up in my humble attempts to explain it. Google is, as always, your friend.

The actual doing of all of this may seem easy to you once you understand what you are doing and how to accomplish what it is you want to do. Unfortunately explaining it in a easy to understand step by step procedure is not that simple. That is why my suggestion of "Google it" comes about. The more you know and understand about a thing the easier it becomes to deal with.

Could also be worthwhile to take a look at you Latest.log file (should be in a folder called Logs at the same level with your oolite-saves folder, e.g. "C:\Oolite\oolite.app\Logs").
The usual practice is to get the empty load screen in a game session, exit the game, open the Latest.log file (with notepad++ preferably), copy the contents to clipboard, and paste in a post here between "code" tags.

This. Feel free to PM me a link to a shared file if the contents are too large to paste here.
