Having trouble with Windows XP Read Only Settings on a folder

I am having trouble with a folder that needs to be read-write for iTunes to open. For a while it was read-write, but it seemingly inexplicably changed to read-only now. When I try to change it back from that, it says it does it, but as soon as I try to open iTunes or the properties for the folder it will be listed as read-only again.

It's possible some other process is watching that folder and changing that folder to read-only. You can use a tool like FileMon or Process Monitor to watch what process is changing it back to read-only after you remove that setting.
