Trying to copy txt file in Notepad. "Notepad: Access is denied"
If I had known how much hassle Win 7 was I would have stuck with XP! Well I suppose its a learning curve....
Latest major hassle, I have a text file on my E:\drive, this is a copy of my XP C:\ drive before I installed Win 7 on it.
I have now been able to get to it after changing the security settings, and then tried to drag and drop my Blacklist.txt to a newly installed version of the program (Mailwasher Pro) on my C:\ drive. I was not allowed to do this as "Notepad: Access is denied", I could not open it either to copy as again "Access is denied". What ever I try access is denied. This applies to Wordpad as well.
I am setup, as far as I can tell as administrator, I have printed and read the tutorial - Permissions - Alloy or Deny Users and Groups. but this did not seem to help, when I open the security tab it shows:
and a long, long set of numbers, there is no administrator or user information as I have seen in other Security tabs.
It was dead easy in XP just drag and drop or open in Notepad and copy paste across!
Is there a way to get around this problem?

I have tried to send it by email, still Access Denied.
I have tried to get Notepad and wordpad to open the file, still Access Denied.
I have tried to open in V PC, still Access Denied.
I have tried to edit the permissions, still Access Denied.
I have tried to change the owner, still Access Denied.
I have tried to copy the whole folder and move to another drive, still Access Denied.
I will try the ownership of shortcut tomorrow, but have my doubts.
I think on every folder I have changed the permissions on I have seen, the following:
Everyone, SYSTEM, User (me) as administrator and user (me)
On this file there is SYSTEM and a 'bust' with a ? mark along side a long, long row of numbers, no administrator or user details. In 'Details' it is shown as Administrator as the owner.
In security there is an option to Edit permissions, this screen gives the choices of Users, Groups etc, from this location (My computer name) then I need to enter the 'Object' names to select. I do not have a clue what this means, there are examples but I am not sure what object I need to find/enter.
Anyone got a clue as to what the reason for the denied message is?
