Question: What files/folders are you trying to change the Read-only attribute that it asks for admin rights?

And if you click "Ignore All", the it does just that: It ignores the command you've just issued, which is why the read-only change isn't holding...
Users Folder.

Cuz that's where the Firefox folder is, and the other files that doesn't work too, because of the files being "Read-Only".
More specifically, can you tell me the path of the folder you're trying to change? Because it's sounding more and more like a security problem than a read-only problem you're having.

Unless it's your normal users folders, such as "Documents", "Pictures", etc. you shouldn't mess with them unless you know what you're doing. Those folders that are hidden by default should remain so, and are hidden from view for a reason, not the least of which is system and application stability.

Well, I encountered an error with Mozilla Firefox & it says "Couldn't initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in you application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behavior when accessing security features.", **You don't have to read from here till the end** In Firefox Support is where I got the idea that the problem is with the Read only thing. So I checked the * properties if it's Read Only(You guys proved me that it's not) & also checked if their is a problem with the Restrictions(There is None). I got all that thingy from Firefox Support, so when I thought that maybe it's not the Firefox's Problem, maybe it's with windows And that's how it all started.

It's not just with Firefox, but with other applications too. But unlike Firefox the other application doesn't show an error.

Just a reminder:
*This happened after I use system restore
*Using Windows 7 Ultimate x64
