In the past, I have railed against Windows Vista to anyone who will listen. I have shouted about it, got mad at it, and would have thrown it out the window if it hadn't had my computer attached. Today, however, is different. Today I have not got mad at Vista, I have simply been defeated by it.
Here is my problem: I have a folder which I created a couple of days ago. It is not anything fancy, just an ordinary folder. When I go to properties, it says it is 'read-only'. I do not want this, so I uncheck the box. It does things with progress bars, and I think 'well that worked'. Then I check and, no, no change, all still read-only.
The bizarre thing is that the files inside the folder do not appear to be read-only, as it lets me change them at will. But when my browser/apache configuration tries to access them - no, not a chance.
In addition, beside the 'read-only' box, it says "(applies only to files in folder)", implying that the files may be read only, but the folder is not. This is, of course, the opposite of reality.
I have trawled t'internet, dispatched a number of heated responses to Microcrap, and am on the verge of giving up.
Can anyone help?
