Yes, it says I do not have permission to save to the folder location I select. It then asks if I just want to save it to Pictures. However it still doesn't allow the save there. When I select the "Documents" folder it will save there. This issue first cropped up when I upgraded to Win 10. I have since reverted back to Win 7 as I had way too many issues and decided 7 was better for my system. Sadly this issue migrated back with me.

I have included a picture of the error so you could see what it says. I'm sorry I didn't say as much last night in my original post, but I was extremely tired and out of it. I just want to post before I went off to bed.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
What happens if you click on okay to save to My Pictures ?

You can also try using Clean boot,

ThrashZone - I opened the page for Troubleshooting you supplied, however my msconfig box already looks different before I even did anything. I attached a picture of it so you could see it. I don't want to thoroughly mess up my system, so I thought I had better check with you before continuing.

Hi,
So far besides the purple everything looks as it should
Just click on the Startup tab across the top and take screen shots of it and another if the list is too long for 1 screen shot,
Repeat for the services section make sure you refer to the tutorials link to make sure you check the box on the bottom left to Hide all Microsoft services.

Hi and thanks,
I would uninstall BitRaider and see how things go

Confirm how you're saving files
Are you right clicking and using save picture as ?
Or another way ?

We kind of need to focus on 1 browser at a time
I prefer Internet explorer if that's okay ?

See what this does,
Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer
Click on the suggestion (No Add-ons) or it’s located at,
Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.
This will work for all versions of ie,
Manage add-ons for Internet Explorer - Windows Help

Activate EPM if on a 64 bit version of windows,
Internet Explorer 10 - Enable 32-bit or 64-bit IE10 in Windows 7
Add the Run box to the Start menu list or use the Winkey+R key
Start Menu - Add Run Button
Open the Run command and Paste this into it and Okay,
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff
