hi there,

i am trying to install some programs onto my computer and the programs keep terminating with a - acess denied message - and i have noticed at all of my folders - program files, windows e.c.t and all folders underneath are marked as read-only yet when i try to un mark them - i refresh it and find that they are read- only again - its rather irritating - BTW i have administrtor priveleges and am the only user on this machine.

all help is greatly apprecieated :)

try taking ownership (http://www.brajeshwar.com/archives/2005/09/file-access-denied-on-windows-xp-and-how-to-take-ownership/)

or do a disk check....
