    @ricardobohner, all the folders and the file are read-only to Users. Full control for administrators, of which I am one. (It's the only login for the computer.)

    @Hermitt43, yes, it is always necessary after the system creates the file. It's a memory dump that is made after a BSoD (originally C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP). I also ICACLS /reset the file.

    Have you tried what is described in this link:
    How to run File Explorer as Administrator

    Specifically this command:
    C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /k %windir%\System32\reg.exe ADD HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v EnableLUA /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    @ricardobohner, that works! Hence, UAC "Never notify" isn't the same as UAC "off." I'm marking the thread as answered, even though I still don't know how the system knows my .DMP file was a system file: It has to be that there is just a hidden file attribute in the file system that I can't see.

    If anyone knows of software that will show me all the info about a file from a file system point of view, please let me know.
