cannot remove read only attributes from model

Even though I saved part with a different name and location, when trying to modify part this error occurs "The following components are read only and cannot be modified - C:\Program Files (x86)\Solid Edge ST5\Training\Frame1.par - deselect these components and rerun the edit command".
The file location is not where the part is located, and when I opened the same part in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Solid Edge ST5\Training\Frame1.par" there are no read only attributes listed to uncheck?
Windows 7 x64
I have done this operation approx 4 times with the same result.

By default on Windows 7, folder under Program Files (x86) are 'read only'. Being that the part is called 'Frame1.par', could it be a frame cross section that it is referring to?
Opening the part in Revision Manager (View&Markup, use the pulldown menu on the side of the Open button) to see what it may be linked to...
