On my desktop computer I did a clean install of Windows 7 off the official MS Win 7 upgrade disc that I used to upgrade from XP. I did the many rounds of Windows Upgrades, etc. Then started to install only the programs I use and only from trusted sources. Everything was going smooth and just taking longer than I wanted. I woke up my machine from sleep this morning and tried to launch itunes. I get this error: "The folder itunes is on a locked disk or you do not have write permissions for this folder" itunes was working fine all day prior to today. So, I check the folder C > Users > (account name) and that folder has a gold lock icon on it. Under Properties it list "Read-only" as an attribute. So, I uncheck it and "apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files". About halfway through the application of attributes (about a 5 minute process) I get the warning: "You will need to provide administrator permission to change these attributes". So, I do. The properties window shows this as unchecked now so I hit OK. The folder still has the gold lock on it. So, I hit properties again and the read-only check is there once again and itunes won't launch. Any thoughts? Mind you, I am the only account. The account is Admin level. And no one else has touched the machine at all. Thanks!
