Windows 7: Blocking files...

Blocking files...

I've had this issue with a couple dvd's of mine. While trying to re-install f1 challenge earlier this message pops up on two files and blocks me from transferring them. I also have this problem with some files from Batman Arkham Asylum.

Anyone know how to fix this? I am listed as the administrator and hold the only login to my computer. I've tried setting my game drive to "full control" for my user and everything else but it still won't let me transfer.

Rather annoying when I can't transfer files to my computer! I get the message during the install process and if I try to transfer manually.

Try right-clicking on the installer and selecting "run as administrator".

I've tried that still doesn't work. I can't transfer the files. Makes no sense. I AM the admin.

Ok I got the files to transfer now using the vista work around - Tech Support Forum - View Single Post - Administrator

Kinda bs that even though your account says "admin" you don't even have full rights.
