Hello, when I came home last night I noticed that every file and folder in my XP pro laptop was read only. I attempted to uncheck the read only attribute, but the GREEN BOX just kept coming back. I went to microsoft's website and did the regedit and the command prompt commands, but it didn't work. I gave all user accounts (which is only one) full access in case it was a permission conflict.

The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5100 running XP pro on an NTFS format.
It has 1.5 gb of ram
a 256mb ATI 1100 Radeon Xpress Graphics card
and a AMD x64 turion performance rated at 2.74 (supposed to be 2.19, but it's running better than stated).
