Wont save fileexcept save as - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Often when opening a file and making some changes Ill CS refuses to save the changes, throwing up a alert box that the file is "Read Only or in use by another user" (it's not), and I can only save the changes by "Save As" or "Save As Copy". This is an annoying bug, is there any thing I can do to fix this? Thanks...

    hmm odd....
    try making a copy of the file before you open it and rename it and work
    off of the renamed one, see if that eliminates the problem

    if not, then you may have to mess around with the files properties,
    checking to see if its read only, and removing all permissions except
    yours
    since that by itself is a lenghtly topic, i found this link for you
    that explains how to do so:

    Thanks for the link, however, that's not it, I checked file permissions
    first thing...

    sigh...

    Hmm, I just posted a message similar to this, I'm having a similar
    problem. Has anybody else had this sort of situation?
