  1. Some files won't save on Documents


    Hello,So after installing Forza 5 and trying to get access through the WindowsApps, I have changed some security to my user on the folder which managed to mess with everything eventually. Recently, everything I try to do it doesn't allow, some apps even got corrupted like Photoshop, Vegas and others.Is there a solution for that?

    :)
