Windows 7: Unable to save files due to Permissions error.

02 Nov 2009   #1

Unable to save files due to Permissions error.

So here is the story. Last night I installed the Photoshop CS4 trial. Works like a charm. I also installed Windows 7 on my laptop which is on my home network. A strange problem has occurred in which I cannot save images (in any program, Photoshop and Firefox for example) in my libraries and occasionally on my desktop. This is the error that shows up:

This is within Firefox. After ignoring the error and trying again it gives me this problem.

So I just say yes and continue. The problem is that within Photoshop and other programs I can't simply ignore it an save, they completely block it out. So my question is what could be the problem. It seems to be a network permissions issue (as indicated by the error), but I'm not entirely certain how to go about fixing it. Neither of the folders I try to save to are shared on the network so that shouldn't be the issue.

Sorry for the large images (and ignore rainbow Napoleon, just a test image ).
