comment Administrator File Modification Privilege
Interesting. I added explicit write permissions on the file and was able to modify it even though my effective permissions already showed that I could. I removed that and then tried to apply write permissions from the root level and have that cascade. That looked like it would work but didn't, so I took ownership of the folder and cascaded that. For some reason the third folder in is only how far the permissions cascade, so I modified that folders permissions and let them cascade and that did the trick.

comment Administrator File Modification Privilege
I understand your third point now that you corrected it. I created a batch file to run explorer and then a shortcut to the batch file on the desktop so I can change the icon. By opening the shortcut with Run as Administrator I can get the elevated Explorer that can open documents with elevated privileges. Thanks.

Even when I run an elevated instance of explorer I still cannot open the file and save changes to it. I have to open notepad with elevated privileges then open the file from within notepad. Either that or copy the file to an uprotected location (like the desktop), make the changes and move it back.

Could you please elaborate on your second option? My understanding is that I already have write access. Is this different than file permissions and if so where do I add it?

I turned it off to verify that this was the problem, but I'm not sure I want to leave it that way.

comment Email Management System
HelpSpot looks nice, but emails are not automatically presented to CSRs and it looks like there is no way to decide whether the email reply should be from the CSR or from the email address it was received from. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, the account is part of the administrators group. Looking at the Effective Permissions this user has Full Control on the files in question. The files are just text files that I am trying to edit with notepad. The application is Oracle 11g 64-Bit.

comment Email Management System
Yes, the emails would be from customers and yes they would be handled by internal CSRs. I should have included that to begin with. I've looked at some ticketing systems, but often their other features get in the way of the email feature. Yes, FogBugz is too developer focused and also can only handle 14 email areas (we currently have about 30 between multiple divisions of sales, financials and support). We have considered rolling our own, but want to look at other options first.
