Windows 7: Random Authorization Error message

Random Authorization Error message

Hi all.

I get this strange random error when I try to save files (JPG for example). It says that I don't have permission to modify this file... I didn't mess with admin rights but I might need to reset them if that will fix it.
Anyway here's a screenshot of that error message:


It happens 1 out of 5 times when I save files.

Does anyone have an idea what the hell is that?

You may have to reset your permission and/or reset ownership

The procedure is the same for 7 and Vista.

If you still have a problem, after taking ownership, go to the file, right click>properties>security and then give yourself proper permission.

Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums

The procedure is the same for 7 and Vista.

I have the Take Ownership in the right-click menu, but it doesn't happen in just one specific folder. It happens in various folders, therefore it's unlikely that I have to take ownership on each and every folder I have in my system.
