Are there any other Users on your computer? Like accounts, that is one way to know, if no one else uses it, then you are admin or Owner... Otherwise, ask others they might know, and then... another way that I don't really remember but I know Ofnuts will tell ya.

I get the simple answers out of the way,

Hello, maybe your problem was "read only" attribute in the file properties (RMB on file).
Works for me.
Maybe it helps someone someday.

Unchecking the "read only" attribute fixed the problem for me. I just can't figure out how it got changed. Everything was fine up until about a week ago which was when I started getting the dreaded "permission denied" messages. Works fine now, though.

If you are using an administrator account exclusively as the only account on your PC Right Click the Gimp.exe icon then select Run As Administrator.

Problem solved.
