    Question All Files Now Say Read-only?

    i had to reformat after letting someone use my computer an having them totally mess it up, an after reinstalling VC++6 standard an copying the files(programs) i had made off a cd i burned all of the files say "READ-ONLY" is this normal? or is there a way to change them back without having to manually change them from read only to make changes?

    Select the folder that the files are in and change it's properties, so that all files contained within are changed.
