This does this with everything from MSWord to Photoshop, it will randomly tell me that I do not have permission to save files either in My Documents or My Pictures and whatever program I was using writes a 0bytes jpg, png, docx, etc that is NOT deletable! it ALWAYS says "You need permission from the computer's administrator to perform this action" But I AM the administrator, the program wrote a 0 byte file that I cannot delete. the folders in My Documents and My Pictures is littered with 0 byte files that I cannot delete. I tried using the "take ownership" right click registry hack, it says it was successful at taking ownership but nothing could be further from the truth. it still says "You need permission from the computer's administrator to perform this action"

 

Any ideas on what the problem could be?

There may be a system permissions issue.

 

Try running Windows Repair AIO with default settings. (doublecheck that reset permissions is ticked, I can't remember off the top of my head)

 

Let us know how you go.

It gave a bunch of "access is denied" messages followed by something else, it was too quick for me to see and I STILL cannot delete these files and I just got the error again in Photoshop :(

Yeah, these things can can escalate once they start. Try fix it with that tool, if that doesn't work we'll look for other causes.

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought that was coming from Photoshop.

 

Please try restarting your machine in safe mode and then running the tool.

The same "access is denied" in safe mode. I tried both the file and registry permissions repair. The registry was successful, file permissions give "access is denied" and I IMMEDIATELY got "You don't have permission to write to C:\users\Arceist Justin\Pictures" after trying to save an image there in Photoshop after returning to normal mode

Do you a have a restore point available you can restore to? (before the problem started)

 

(How do I do a system restore?)

Yes but I go back THREE MONTHS WAY BEFORE the problem existed and I STILL get these random "You don't have permission to write" so I reverted

Ok, that's a shame.

 

Please follow the directions on this page to reset your NTFS permissions. Make sure you create a system restore point before attempting the fix.

 

Does it resolve your issue?

It resolved the issue, but ONLY temporary! NOT EVEN two weeks later, it is doing it again! The issue was ONLY resolved for a short time before the SAME "Do not have permission" messages keep popping up again, and again only in 'My Documents' and 'My Pictures' and subfolders like before. that link ONLY was a temporary fix!!

 

Any other ideas??

RESET the NTFS permissions AGAIN and then RUN Windows AIO. If the PROBLEM occurs AGAIN we might have to LOOK at other possibilities.
