I am going to post this here and in another thread because I don't know where to begin. I just recently noticed that all the folders on my XP machine are set to read only access. I don't know how, why or when this happened but i just noticed it last night. I tried to change it but cannot figure it out. Can anyone help or have an idea as to what to do? The most recent problem I had was a system hang up on me while installing Unreal Tourny 2K3. The disc hung on a bad/corrupted file. Before that I havn't had a problem. I don't know where to begin or what to look for.
