    Default Lots of my folders have become read-only

    Lots of my files and folders have become read-only after downloading Eclipse (I have used the Europa version as I needed to also download CFEclipse as well to program in ColdFusion) and Adobe ColdFusion. When you right-click and go to properties, the read-only button is highlighted, so I have clicked this off, but it reappears when you right-click and look at it again.
    Does anybody know what has caused this and how I can fix this?

    If you're talking about a Windows box, are there any folders that aren't tri-state? (Not Read-only, as you will find if you click twice).

    Hi Darren
    Thanks for your help. I am an absolute beginner in this, so am unsure of the terminology such as tri-state.
    All the files and folders that I have looked at have two boxes:
    Read-only (Only applies to files in folder)
    Hidden
    The read only is clicked in green.
    Sorry I cannot be more specific.

    Hi Darren
    I get you now - they do seem to be tristate - a blue, a blank and a tick.

    This has nothing to do with Eclipse. All Windows systems I've worked on display the read-only statue of all folders as tri-state.
