Not sure when this started but it was past couple weeks.
I just keep running into the same problem over and over.
I've already tried the "Take Ownership" shortcut of the folders and every, single, subfolder, but no luck.
This c:\programdata folder CONTINUES to constantly put itself in ReadOnly, and I can never uncheck and apply. I verified my account is the owner and that I have Full control over every subfolder and file, but I still can't do things like install software that puts shortcuts into the c:\programdata\microsoft\w
rt menu directory.
