It's probably a symptom of me not understanding permissions completely, but I
can't remove read-only from any files or folders that came with Vista or that
a third-party app installs.
I bring up the Properties window for a folder, uncheck read-only and apply
it to the folder and all sub-items. A message box warns me that I don't have
permission to change the attributes, but I hit Continue and it shows me a
message box that appears to show some kind of activity anyway. I then close
the Properties window and bring it up again to find the read-only box checked
again and all the sub-files and sub-folders likewise read-only.
For the record, I'm running build 5384 on my home PC and with the default
administrator account that Vista prompts you to create on first boot. Please
let me know how to get this permission, and thanks in advance.
