Windows will not let me change my configuration files. I get access denied.

  1. This is a Windows  issue where it doesn't let you save files into the Program Files folder unless the program doing the editing is launch as "Administrator" when you edit these files.   This new feature of Windows has been around since Windows 7 was released. To resolve this matter, launch notepad with the "Run As Administrator" feature by right clicking on the executable or icon.
