    Insufficient permissions

    Recently Chrome stopped downloading files with a "Failed Insufficient permissions" message.
    I tried Firefox with the same result.
    I tried Opera and it worked... for a while, then it produced the same message.
    Same for Internet Explorer and Edge.
    I have run out of browsers and I now cannot download anything.
    I can save web pages but I cannot download pdf, epub, csv, exe.
    I have tried fooling it by changing the extension to mhtml or jpg but I get the same message.
    I don't know why this has started happening recently.
    Can anybody please explain and provide solutions, either in terms of restoring permissions or switching off UAC?
    Many thanks.

    Insufficient permissions

    I have tried several locations with the same result.
    In any case, all these locations were fine a few days ago.
