saving a file under C:\Program Files\... Win 7. Access Denied message

Standalone PC running Windows 7

I need to open a file in notepad. (it's to do with this user's online backup system)

Located at: C:\Program Files\Offsite Backups\DataBunker\conf\SGConfiguration.conf

And make two small changes.

However when I try to save it I receive an Access Denied message. Any ideas how can I bypass this? I presume it is a permissions thing?

Right-click on the Notepad icon and "run as administrator". Then you should be able to open the file from the location and make any necessary changes and save it.

Or do the following. Save the copy to Desktop.
Then simply replace the file in C:\Program Files ~ with the one you put to the Desktop. I use this approach always :)
