Windows 7 Pro.. cannot create file in C:\ drive

Hello,

I've tried edting the permissions on the C Drive, but no luck. I need to be able to create files in my C:\ drive, but I get the following error:

Error: 0x80070522: A required privilege is not held by the client.

I already tried taking ownership of C:\, I've tried giving full control to C:\ and subfolders and files.  But still no luck.  Hopefully is something simple that I'm missing.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Lowering the UAC setting worked. Thanks!

Our software vendor's application has a module that creates temp files to the C:\ drive. I'm trying to get them to change this...afraid it will be a while.

Thanks again..
