    I've tried everything to turn my read only attribute off on all my files

    I understand my "desktop.ini" files control this feature in Windows 7

    What should be in this " desktop.ini" file

    mine has

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    [email protected]%systemroot%\system32\MCTRes.dll,-150225

    is this correct

    some one may suggest something else to look at

    When I brought the computer I had viruses all over the pace and recovered it only by luck
    now I have installed everything can I reload windows via the internet to cure the problem

    I'm trying to make a IIS HTTP server and I need to get around the problem to get the server to work

    best regards

    Is there a COA sticker on the computer? If so, can you still read the 25-character Windows Product Key (do not post the key here)? If so, what is the exact Windows version specified on the COA?

    I took the fragment "can I reload windows via the internet to cure the problem" to be the question "Can genuine Windows 7 installation media be obtained via the internet?". If it was not meant as that question then please ignore my post # 2. Otherwise, your answers to my questions could help me answer your question.
