I know this seems like a question that has been asked many times, but none of the solutions I have found have worked. Recently, all of my folders on my hard drive have become read only. Even new folders I create are set to read only. However, all of the files remain unchanged. I realize that some folders probably can't be changed for security reasons, so I have been trying to get a folder on my desktop to be changed. I am an administrator, and I have full control over the folder. I have tried command prompt using the attrib command and I have taken ownership of the folder. However, I still cannot change the folders from being read only. I am running Version 6.1.7600 build 7600 in 64 bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated. EDIT: I just checked, and both my thumb drive and external hard drive are in the same condition.
