Ok so i am tryingot add something to a programs directory... C:/Program Files/"Example"

Basically i cannot copy paste anything in this folder o drag any file into this folder, i have tried disabling UAC and giving myself permissions on everything, I have been playing at it for hours with no prevail.

Does anyone know how I can add a file to a program folder? You will be my savior if you can.

Thanks alot!

It sure sounds like a permission error. Is this a dual-boot system? Right click the folder, chose properties, then the Security tab. Click the Edit... button. Select your username, and tick the permission boxes to Allow where desired. Click Apply or OK.
