[SOLVED] You don't have permission to save in this location

I just reinstall windows 7 and get the error

"You don't have permission to save in this location.  Contact the administrator to obtain permission.  Would you like to save in the ..........folder instead? "

This error happened when i tried to save a file from chrome to my hardisk. Even I'm an administrator, I still get this error. To solve this, here are the steps:

1. Open my computer, right click on local disk that you are trying to save the file, for example D:, right click, then properties.
2. Click on the Security tab.
3. Click on the Administrators
4. Click Edit...
5. Click Administrators again.
6. The permission already allow full control, check deny, then check again allow full control, then apply.
7. Some of folder will be denied to be full controlled, for example, folder Music and folder Pelm (You must remember all this folder).
8. After finish, click ok, ok.

9. Right click on the folder that has been denied, click properties.
10. Click on Security tab.
11. Click Everyone, then click Edit...
12. Click Everyone, then check Allow Full control, then click apply, then click ok, ok.
13. Do this to all folder that has been denied before.

If that doesn't work, try run chrome with run as administrator

    Your system files may be on a separate partition that is not assigned a drive letter and therefore not viewable from the computer folder. use computer management to assign the partition a letter or find another way to access that partitions' properties.
