You need to make sure you are logged in as admin.

Right click the folder
Properties
Uncheck 'read only'
Selct the 'security' tab
Select the username of the admin account under the top box
Select the 'Edit' box.
Check the boxes marked 'Write'
Hit apply.

On the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
In the Advanced Settings section, click to clear the Use simple file sharing (Recommended) check box.
Click OK.

or

2. Boot in safe mode :0)


Good Luck
