How do I get permissions to save in a folder that Windows 7 denies me from?

I'm getting this message - You don't have permissions to save in this folder - even though I am the only user on this machine, and administrator.

To save file to a Program Folder in Windows 7, you will need to right click the folder whewre you want to save --> Properties, then go to the Security tab, highlight "Users" and then click "Edit..." Give it full control and apply, back out the windows and you should be able to save. When you are done, be sure to go back and uncheck the full control and write boxes.
