Windows 7: Photo viewer error

Photo viewer error

I am having a problem with my windows photo viewer on my computer. When I try to rotate a picture it tells me that it cannot save the picture because of an unknown error. I've tried looking for a solution on the internet but I haven't had any luck. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and could help me. Thanks.

Try disabling your firewall/av then doing it.
The only other thing I can think of outside of that interference would be the files have somehow been set to read only.
If that's the case you just right click properties and untick read only.
