C: No Permissions???

Does anyone have a fix or (at least) a reason for this problem?
Every time I try to save a file to my C:, it tells me that I am unable to because I don't have permission. My profile is set up to full Admin... I can't figure this out. HELP!!

Your default account that the install creates does not have FULL admin access...

Just a question regarding this topic.

Is there a way to set the permissions on the C drive manually?

So, I found out that Win7 doesn't like to save directly to the C: for security reasons.
I guess it means that I should just save to folders WITHIN the C: and not directly TO C:?
Do I have this right?

...that is one thing that i noticed, I can't save directly to C: but you can move/paste files to C: drive.

try using the "take ownership" tool this and turning off UAC may work better

Why would you want to save files to the root of drive C: ? ?
This after awhile would affect performance...or am i misunderstanding here ? ?

OK you need to take ownership instructions here Take Ownership Shortcut

It isnt a real good idea to save to root. why would you want to?
