Hey guys, I have a question for you all ...

I just remade my PC and reinstalled Windows 7 and now working on the Software.
I must of fixed this in the past, but for the life of me can't remember what I did ...

when getting into certain folders, or even trying to save certain files, I get the message basically saying ...
Not allowed, would you like to save to My Documents instead?

How do I fix this? (PS: Yes, I am Administrator)

THANK YOU in Advance :)

Hi,

On a x64 OS to edit system files you need to use an x64 text editor, notepad is fine, next you need to run Notepad as Administrator...

Open the Start Menu and on the Search box type notepad, on the search result right click on Notepad and choose Run as Administrator.
You have to open notepad as Administrator so the program can write to the windows folder and sub-folders.
