    I recently updated my host in which i have placed certain websites that people are not able to access. Now whenever I try to add or delete a entry and then save it , it says that i don't have permission to save this file in this location and that i need to contact the administrator?. Why is this doing this now, and how do i get rid of this problem?

    specs
    windows 7 home edition
    intel pentium cpu p6000 @ 1.87 ghz
    4.0 gb of ram

    Is it read-only? In use? What permissions does it have? Are you an administrator?

    yes I am the administrator, this occurs whenever I try to save a file, it says that i don't have the permission,it is not only read-only but everything. I recently tried to use bittorent and now it won't let me save the the C drive :S

    NO, you are not "THE" administrator, but a member of the Administrator group.

    You need to fire up your text editor in the Administrator mode and then you should be able to save these edits.
