Problem, many files flagged read only
by bytewise350 - 7/21/12 2:14 PM
On XP Pro 32, I am not able to install a new printer because MANY files and folders on my system are flagged read only. I get a message during install "access denied". My attempts to reset the flags in properties have not worked. I do not know when this problem started since many things still work normally (e.g. email is being stored in the deleted file) I did a system restore from a week ago and it did not correct the problem.
Anyone had this problem? How do I fix it?
