Fresh install of Vista SP2 ultimate, cant copy a file from desktop into the documents folder or anything similar! Can copy files to desktop though.
Error : 'You need permission to perform this action'. WTF!?
Account is an administrator account..
I have tried the 'take ownership' fix where i applied a reg entry and can now shift + right click a file and press take ownership of the directory, i did it for the whole users directory no luck. - Makes me mad im having to do this just trying to copy a file!
I have tired the fix of finding windows explorer in the start menu and right clicking and pressing 'run as administrator' as well.
Many thanks if anyone can help out.

Edit: Permissions for the directory im trying to copy into seem normal as well.
This is just a shot in the dark...
have you tried disabling UAC?
Also have you tried using the hidden administrator account to achieve this, I think it gives even higher administration privileges.
