Default "Remove refer to administrator"

I want to save word documents to a CD. When I try to save to "E" drive - I get a message advising I don't have access and need to refer to my administrator. Who is my administrator or how can I remove this as the computer is for me only!!

If you want to be able to use your documents, when working with in Word, act
as if your floppy drive does not exist. (This applies to CDRW/CDR drives as
well.)
Don't use Word to:
Open a document on a floppy
Print a document on a floppy
Edit a document on a floppy
Save a document to a floppy (not even a copy)

Word regularly trashes documents on floppy drives!

Instead, work on the document using your hard drive. Copy it back and forth
using Windows.

I know that for some with shared computers (libraries) this is a tough
prescription. All I can recommend for that is to use a brand new formatted
disk each time you save and don't do any editing.

Use your burning software or Windows to move copies to your CD, not Word!

Are you hooked up to a network?

Is "E" your CD drive on this particular computer?

"E" may not be your CD drive and you may be trying to save to a drive
that you do not have permission to do so.

Maybe you don't have a CD-R drive?

That also could be a problem..
