    Hey

    I'm having this little problem with my computer. When I download files and try to save them to my C drive, it won't save and gives me this message that I do not have permission to save it.

    I am running with admin privileges. The workaround is to save it to desktop and then copy it over.

    How do I set it so I can save downloaded files directly to the C drive?

    Thanks.

    Turn UAC off.

    Hmm..I do recall being able to save to C:\ even when UAC was on..so I don't know...

    Maybe a glitch or bug? :confused:
