How come I can't remove read only from folders?

I noticed that under properties of my user name that read only is checked, I am the admin and the only one on my pc. I've unchecked it twice and it applies changes but when I go back in it is checked again? I've tries restarting thr computer but still no luck?

Hello Michael,

You might see if using Option Two in METHOD TWO of the tutorial below to remove the Read Only attribute from your user profile folder using a command prompt may be able to help.

Read-only File and Folder Attribute

Hope this helps,
