SwKotor problem with changing File due to Security permissions

Went into to the swkotor.ini file for the game to do a bit of tweaking but my computer won't let me change anything because i "Don't have permission from the administrator". Problem is that I AM the admin on this computer cuz i am the only person who uses it. I've had this problem before with other stuff and security permissions. Anyone know how i can fix this?

right click the file and look at properties if it is set to read only untick that box.
go over to the security tab and make sure you have full rights for the file. okay out and try again.

Well the is the old attrib command if windows is giving you pain
You could even try moving the file changing properties then moving it back.

At any rate here's the info on the attrib command if you know how to use the command window.
