    Exclamation Read only files

    i have just recently become unable to download anything to any folder. all of my folders are set to read only and every time i try to change that setting, it switches back. i have set my permissions to full control on all files and folders, except some that come back with access denied. i have tried disabling the uac to no avail. any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,



    Moshdog

    All folders in Windows (since XP anyway) are Read-only - it doesn't affect
    access to the contents of them.
    You need to be far more specific as to what happens when you try.

    Ok, i am trying to download a file for a class. an hour prior to attempting this download, i was able to download a different file. now every time i try to download something, the download does not show up anywhere on my computer, regardless of where i try to save it to, even an external hard drive and a flash drive. i use firefox, and in the download window, the "open", "open containing folder" and "go to download page" options are unavailable for all downloads.
