Windows 7: copying files to mydocs or program files

copying files to mydocs or program files

I tried doing this. Example.... game files/data from my XPdocs on C: to my Windows 7 docs on D:.... couldnt do it, just gave me a chime, no dialogue box or anything. Also tried to move a file from my desktop to either mydocs or to program files folder, same thing. After that, even took ownership of all affected folders/files, ones being moved and destination folder. Still the same.

Question: is there some type of security setting i am missing? anyone else test this? I have moved files to mydocs before, and now i cant move anything to there.... has me confused now. Nothing special about a file or folder i am trying to move, permissions ect.

Tried both cut and paste, and copy, same problem either way. No protected files/folders involved

I can extract a zip/rar to mydocs or program files, but not manually just cut/paste or copy files to there... not just mydocs, but music folder, pictures... anywhere now it seems.... am able to save a downloaded file to those locations. confused

[edit] only recent app installations include powerISO, cod2 and Qtracker (game browser) since this problem has started. Dont think any of those should have affected or caused this problem. Also, yes, i am admin

[edit2] Well, not just mydocs or program files folders affected, its any drive/folder that i try to copy/paste cut/paste to another location

I have systematically gone back thru recently installed programs along with restore points and have came to the conclusion that it either has to be the MS office 07 Junk Email update(KB959141) or i just dont know.

Only activity was stated above with installed apps during this period also including other games such as mvp 2005 (which works btw) and along with that was the ea online app. All of which dont make sense as i have used as well as many of you, so, this stumped me. Didnt edit reg or for that matter any settings as I pretty much have my settings as i want now. The restore point I have recovered to was one that I just got my audio back working, which this problem had yet to start, so i can atleast cross that out.

While doing all of this I ran across a recovery bug with the restore app when selecting "show more restore points" and then unchecking it. Everytime restore crashed and closed if those steps were done, but only then.

just some wacky Windows 7 input......
