Read Only -- tag Folders

XP  home 32 bit  --- only one user account and that is set as Admin ----have  reset all the Folders to Default in the Customize Properties.

have tried the microsoft  solution -- eg: change the Attributes to system via DOS --- to no avail.
for some reason the DeskTop attrib is set at READ ONLY --- change it in DOS --- but it still reverts back to READ ONLY .

ALL the other Folders even though I change their Attrib in DOS still revert back to READ ONLY.


Thanks for any replies

What are you trying to do? What is this preventing you to do?
My desktop is set to read-only as well but this is done by Windows and doesnt cause any issues?

All the Folders and files within those Folders on the system are set at READ ONLY.

I have been unable to download any data to a File that is within one of those Folders  (or copy and paste) for around a week----- BUT just now i have downloaded some data  and been able to copy and paste into another of the affected Folders/Files ---- BUT the folders and files within are still showing READ ONLY

Thanks

well what ever has happened ?
I can at least download and save the data --- that was the important point --- if the "read only" tag stays there and does not now cause any problems i can live with that .

THANKS GUYS
