So I have had this constant problem doesnt matter if im using my laptop/ desktop or work PC. When I save a file (ex: downloading a file or picture from the web, doesnt matter which browser) I often (not always) get an error saying I dont have sufficent privelages to do this. I click ok and hit save again, it asks me to overwrite (as it already made the file but it has no contents) and I hit yes and it works. UAC is off using local admin or domain admin account. What could be causing this?

I assume you performed an upgrade from a previous version of Windows to Win 7. Is that correct?
Sounds like you need to take ownership of the folder where you are saving files.
