    I am running into permission problems when trying to install a zip file
    running winzip into a chosen folder. Keep getting access denied. What is up
    with that? It is my computer and I choose to install into a folder of my
    choice. -irish

    Some Vista folder aren't writeable even for Administrators group. Those
    folders are mostly system folders. For example, you don't have write
    permission for the Windows Sidebar folder.
    I don't know where are you trying to extract those .zip files, but you could
    write here so I can check where's the problem.

    I am downloading Photoshop brushes in .zip format and attempting to install
    into C:\Program files\Adobe\Photoshop CS3\Presets\brushes folder. I have
    specified this folder in Winzip and the application displays Access denied
    when attempting to extract the files into this folder. A workaround I have
    been using is to extract all of the files in the zip onto the desktop and
    then copying and pasting all of the .abr files into the previous listed
    folder. Since most Photoshop brush creators zip many files into one zip it is
    becoming a pain to do this procedure over and over.-irish

    What NTFS permissions do you have on that folder?

    I have clicked on the Adobe folder and then right clicked it and clicked on
    permissions and have set it to full access by "creator/owner"-irish

    I suggest creating a new subdirectory(then your will be the
    creator/owner) and extract the files into it.
