MySQL Workbench Could not Save Configuration File (I think the issue is with Windows)

Recently, when I make changes (By hitting Apply, on the screen print attached) to my MySQL configuration file, I get an error Dialog (attached) that says:

Could not Save Configuration File

There was an error saving the configuration file.
PermissionDeniedError: Can't copy
c:\users\areese\appdata\local\temp\2\tmpyhgy99 to C: ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\my.ini

My gut tells me that this isn't a MySQL issue, but something to do with Windows being snarky about permissions.  I'm able to modify the config file manually, but i'd rather do it through MySQL Workbench.  

Any suggestions?

It is likely the consequence of UAC restricting you.  From your experience, workbench might not be UAC aware.
Run workbench as administrator (not just using your administrative account, but actually right click and select run as administrator)

Thanks arnold.

That did the trick.  How annoying.  I'm still confused as to why I started to happen out of nowhere.  Any thoughts on that?

UAC = User Access Control, right?
