Whenever I was downloading stuff it was set to go into my "Documents folder" - I have now set the downloading software to send anything I download in the future to "Downloads". Its doing that, no problem, but I cannot get the folder that has all the previous downloads (stored in documents) to transfer over to "Downloads" - it keeps saying access denied. How can I solve this problem? Should I download Regcure software to solve it?

Sounds like the files you are trying to transfer are either being used by another app or you are not the owner of the files, if you are not the owner of the files (check this by going into the security tab while veiwing the properties) and assign yourself as owner and should solve your problem.
