Hi,

Appreciate your kind advice.
I have a problem with my Document aand Settings folder.
I tried to install a video editing software. During installation, some files were copied to
Document and setting folder. However, during that period, the installation aborts. It says that document and setting could not be accessed as its write protected.
I did not write protect or do anything to that folder. Its not just the video editing software installation. Other software also the same issue.
Could it be a worm in that file or something?
I have scanned using Mcaffe..no virus ... and Im the administrator, the only one using the PC. Pls advice. thanks

Right click the folder, choose "properties" then the security tab. Check permissions there.
