I have all my pics stored in the My Pictures file on Windows XP. I went to edit a few I'd just put on from my digital camera (just like I always do) and it wouldn't let me save the picture. I then noticed in properties that the READ-ONLY box was checked. I unchecked it and applied the setting but it keeps staying on there! HELP! Are my thousands of pictures ruined??
