Windows 7: I hate W7 for one reason!

I hate W7 for one reason!

I have upgraded from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7.

I can't stand it for only one reason. Somebody help me out with this.

If you open photoshop (or any program) and create a new file and save it. Close. Then open the file again and make a change I get the message:

"Could not save "filename" because the file is locked. Use the 'Properties' command in the Windows Explorer to unlock the file."

WHY DOES IT DO THAT? No matter what file I want to edit, I have to first open the application by right clicking on it and choosing "Run as Administrator" I just tried downloading a file from FireFox FTP from my server to overwrite the file on my HD and it won't let me saying I don't have those privileges! WHAT?!?

This is not an improvement....its a Pain in the you know what!

How do I fix this?

Sounds more like adobe, it has ALWAYS keeped files/folders locked after closing. Very irritating trying to eject a usb drive after PS has editted or renaming a folder in XP.
Seems that things are more noticeable in Seven since it follows rules better.
My internet kept breaking in Seven, turned out to be a setting I made in router to block xp-wmp folder.jpg clobber. XP and WMP ignored it, but Seven did as it was told.

Wait a second for the app to shutdown, then try it again.

Well, thats not ment to happen for a start. i cant tell you why its doing it either.

Are you an Admin?Iv heard doing upgrades from Xp to vista can cause bugs. lots of em, i dont know if the win7 upgrade does the same. If possible id install 7 on a new partition an see how that goes. a lot of the time its easier to start a fresh. Though lets just hope thats your last option ey.
Dont suppose you have messed with permissions have you? Im still new to win7 myself so i aint the best person to ask. i hope others can help you out.

No this is a clean install of W7 I reinstalled all my design software but its the same with all programs...not just adobe.

Forexample, if I wanted to be able to save files I work on, I have to first right click on the application icon and choose, "Run as administrator" then no problems with saving files.

Why do I have to do that? I'm on the only one on this machine...I should be set as administrator reguardless, right?

Where are you saving these files - it sounds as if you have an NTFS permissions issue - your user has save rights but not modify rights in the folder(s) involved
This often occurs if using a separate drive or partition that has been accessed by a previous or dual boot OS.

If you right click on the root of the area concerned and give your actual user full control of these folders using the properties - security tab you should not see this error.

You may have to take ownership of the folders before you can apply the permissions

Until Adobe grows a brain these suggestions will be of little help.

It's not an adobe issue. It's as Barmman suggested, a permissions issue.

Get rid of Adobe and install Foxit if it is an Adobe issue. But it looks like more than that.
