I'm a reasonably advanced user but new to Vista, I've just spent three frustrating hours trying to edit my HTML files using notepad. My files were originally from an XP PC. I keep getting errors when I rename the folder containing my files, e.g. I can be opening, editing and saving in a 'New Folder' but when I rename it to 'images' my files will only open as read only!
I can copy and paste the files to another location and they will become editable again, paste them back to the renamed folder and they revert to read only!!! No matter what I try to reset permissions on the folder or individual files they remain read only.
I have checked my permission settings and ensured I have full control on the entire drive and I have disabled the UAC control. This is a brand new HP Pavilion dv3 running all new software, I am the only user.
Any help will stop me from throwing it out the window!!!
