I am trying to import a .jpg into a puzzle program, and continually get the error "you don't have permission to open this file, contact administrator". I am logged in as the administrator, and all my permissions are full access. I have removed and reinstalled the program, etc. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I snagged a screen shot of the error message. I have even tried relocating my jpg's onto a usb stick, but still get the same error.

Try running the program as a administrator.

I've tried that also, no go. I've scanned for adware and viruses, removed the program and reinstalled, to no avail.

If you can view the pictures without any problem then issue is cause by program it self which in that case you need to contact program developer.

File permissions.

Right click on the file and look at its file permissions.

The idea is a person can be god on the computer and still not have permissions to see things on their own turf.

Ah... a USB stick... (yeah file permissions.... or)

try this command that will strip everything from it.

attrib -r -s -h -a <file>

I finally figured out the problem. I am using IObit Anti malware for virus protection, and for some reason it decided to block the program I was trying to import my .jpg's into. Reinstalled the program, and when IObit blocked it, I said "allow" and voila....!! Thanks for all your replies though. I appreciate all the comments.
