I reinstalled chrome due to a problem and when i tried to download something it saved it to documents folder instead of downloads. Then i decided to look at the folder and when i tried to move a file in it it said "you need permission to do this action" although i had admin privileges. I tried Take Ownership , PsExec and Unlocker but neither of them worked. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate SP 1.

Where were you trying to move the file?  It may have been the destination and not the source that was causing the message.
