As a follow-up to this question, I'm attempting to edit the "my.ini" config file for the MySQL service. I've stopped the service, opened the file, made the edit, and attempt to save it -- at which point I get an error saying "Access Denied". On Windows 7.

Questions, feedback, suggestions -- just comment, thanks!!
