Cannot Save Due To Insufficient Permissions

#1
I am trying to download something to my computer.

However, it will not download.

I have tried every browser and it will still not download.

Instead, I am getting this:

Cannot save due to insufficient permissions. Please save to another location.

I tried doing that. It didn't work.

I am also getting this:

Failed- Insufficient permissions
