computer help

All my folders are read-only. I don't know why but when I click the properties of all my folders for my xp account, everything is read only. This is stopping me from editing my song tags and it's very annoying. Whenever I try to change it to non read-only, it just changes back. How do change it to non read only permanently?

Google FTW:

To change the read-only attribute, follow these steps:
Right-click the file or folder icon.
Remove the check mark by the Read Only item in the file's Properties dialog box. The attributes are found at the bottom of the General tab.
Click OK.

Run virus and malware scans. Think about upgrading your OS.

Are you in xp or trying to access the folders from another windows version? If the latter, see here.

They've said it already. Try changing the attribute first in the properties or run a full scan of your computer.
