Is an error generated when you try to save? What error do you get?

Clean install or upgrade? WAs the folder moved to its current position? if you right click the folder and click on security who is the folders owner?

Save it to your documents folder then copy it to the programs folder where you want it.
You could also try opening Notepad with administrator rights.(right click on the notpad icon and select "Run as Administrator".

What kind of antivirus? Is it running in realtime? does it prevent "malicious file types?

I notice that the files are all php. Does text files and others do the same?
