    I was initially trying to download an update for firefox and everytime I did, it didn't download properly. Trying to change profiles I found that the folder was read-only. as is every other folder on my drive. I uncheck it - apply - ok, then it's back again! this also applies for files aswell. nothing that i do turns off read-only and it means i get access denied messages when trying to install mozilla.

    Recently my 2nd hard drive that had paging files on it died. I swapped the page files to my (now)only hard drive. That is the only thing that has happened.

    any ideas/ help GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
