Windows 7: I don't have access to a file even though I'm the owner

10 Nov 2011   #21

W7 Ultimate SP1, LM18.2 MATE, W10 Home, #All 64 bit

Are you downloading the file or is it being downloaded by some program?

You should be able to make Firefox ask you where you want the downloaded file saved to.

I want to thank everyone for their help and input!

!!UAC!! "File Access Denied" Even with admin, as owner, and permission
First off, I wasn't sure where the best place to post this would be, since UAC is supposed to be a security feature of windows 7 I figured the security section would be best. My apologies if I posted this in the wrong section. OK to the problem... Trying to simply copy/paste a game dll file...
