Did this happen since you got the computer or did it happen after? If after, try a system restore. Try uninstalling things (including windows updates) you installed since it started happening. (One by one to find the problematic one.)

Some things to try:

1. Run MSCONFIG and check Startup for "DLCXCATS" and Services for "dlcx_device". Once these are removed, reboot.

2. Remove AVG free

3. Since you didn't get warnings, it may be an infection and not a permission issue. Try scanning the computer with some of these:
Spybot - Search & Destroy Free Download and Reviews - Fileforum
CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

4. Try turning off UAC: How to Disable and Turn Off UAC in Windows 7

Are you trying to save the files to a specific location?

Did you upgrade over Vista or did you do a custom install in wipe out Vista?
