How do I unlock files?

  Ponkin 16:56 29 Nov 2008

When in photo shop, using win Vista I attempt to crop certain pictures, then try to save, a dialogue box appears to say " this file is locked use the properties command in windows explorer and unlock the files"--
However I cannot find any such option in there. So please what is the proceedure to unlock?

Unlocker click here

Also run Photoshop by right clicking the program and run as admin.

Well, that was a marathon; I repeatedly tried unticking 'read only' without success involving restarts and a frozen PC! but finally cured the problem by right clicking on photoshop as administrator. So thanks for the help guys.
