No, the program is giving me an error because it appears that it does not have access to that folder. What is unusual is that it used to work just fine but I updated it and it gives me the error now. So I thought I will just remove the read only trait and then it should work, but that didn't happen when I removed it and I'm wondering why it keeps putting it back.

Try a system restore to a point behind when you updated!

The program I was using updated, not Windwos, so I don't think a system restore point would respond.
