Windows 7: no writing/editing access to my documents and program files.

09 Aug 2012   #1

windows 7 home premium 64bit.

hey, i need some help!

if I am creating files (example with wordPad) I can't save them to the my documents folder! it just says:

you don't have acces to save the file test.txt here. do you want to save them in the folder "my documents" in place?

(and if I click yes: "NO ACCESS" )

And if I am trieng to create a folder:

its norwegian, but "ny"= new and "mappe"= folder

I am an admin. on my PC, but still; it does not give me permission to do this!

the same happens with "program files"! I can still run the programs, and install, but editing files, such as .TXT files, will not work at all! can you guys please help me! I need my PC, and the my documents folder!

hope you can give me an answare real soon!

NOTE: the error I translate may be not 100% right in english! since I have a norwegian PC, the errors it gives are Norwegian!

if you want more photo's, please ask!

forgot to add this: if I run a editing program, such as notepad++, and try to edit any file saved in my documents and hit "save", it will not save it! just give this error:

"ingen tilgang"= no access
