    All files read only on windows 10

    Hey everyone, need some help

    So when I booted my pc this morning, every single file on my computer has become read only and I have absolutely no idea whats caused this problem. I've tried multiple solutions to this problem I've found on google and nothing has worked. I really don't want to have to reinstall windows, but its looking like I might have to unless I can find a solution. Any and all help is greatly appreciated

    Hey mike, thanks for replying. So what would you suggest then? I've got some scans running now using different anti-malware/virus programs. They've yet to dectect anything in the full scans. Think I should wipe my c drive and reinstall windows?
