Question by Tyler B: How can I bypass Windows 7 “Access is Denied”?
Hi, I have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate on a Dell Inspiron 530 (my computer probably doesn’t matter). I have Flight Simulator 10 by Microsoft, and since I did a “clean install” i had to reinstall everything. Since I did not backup my planes, I have to modify the .cfg files…i don’t care if you don’t know about Flight Simulator X, it doesn’t matter. The problem is, whenever I open the .cfg files, change then, and try to save, it asks me if I would like to overwrite. I click yes, then another thing pops up saying that you need Administrator permission. Since I am an administrator, I click continue. Then it waits a second or two and says “Access Is Denied”. I have made the file non-read-only, but this did not helped. I can still rename and delete the files, but I would like to know if there is a way to turn off the “Access Is Denied”. I searched around and found no questions similar to this, so I have decided to ask it here.
