Since I got this RAIN computer, I can no longer directly edit my own web files that are locally on the computer. If I right click, I can view the source but not change it. I have to go to the extra step of an HTML editor. Is this a function of Win7, because I could always do so before.

Then I copied my whole website folder from the PC to laptop. Here when I try to just view a page by clicking on it, it says IE cannot display the current page, though it shows it in the preview window adjacent to the file list.

Am I being protected from myself? Is this undoable?

If you had Microsoft Office with FrontPage installed before then you would have been able to edit web pages directly.

You could give Kompozer a try.

Does Komposer allow you to just right click on the page to open and edit the source, or is it like the HTML editor CoffeeCup, which must be opened first and then the file found and opened?
I don't think I had Front PAge installed before in Vista or XP unless it was automatic.

No, it's standalone as far as I can see. No way to integrate with the browser. Sort of like Dream Weaver was.
