Only one user on this system, and I'm the one who installed it...

Nope, I have General, Sharing, or Customize. General has the read-only
tick. If I untick it, I get the access denied.
Under Sharing is Local sharing and security (disabled) and networking
sharing and security (disabled). Customize has folder options and folder
security. And I confirmed my account is computer administrator.

This is XP home, which I don't believe has folder ownership?
