How many files currently exist there?

Is it a local computer, or is it on a network?

This could be due to permissions conflict.
1. make sure the account is not added in any other group, than Adminsitrators
2. any account or group which you need to use the to create file on Root. it must have write permissions on Root.
Authenticated Users shoud have write / modfiy rights on drive.
Administrators should have full permission of Drive
by defalt all users are considered as Users in Windows Vista & 7. Users does not have write permissions on root
increase the UAC level to highest & then try.
if you cannot apply permissions to system folders (Windows / system32 etc...) so yo have to go step by step. taking ownership & then inherit or assign permissions.

Best way could be that assign Authenticated Users Modify permissions to C: Drive Root. create file & copy it under Windows or subfolder.

be careful, it could messup the permissions & windows can be curropted

As mentioned, this is protected by Windows in Win7.  Create a folder in the root of C:, then put your file in there ... you will then have full access to it.
