I am trying to modify a file called quake3.cfg and I get an error that I can't modiry

Something in Win 7 is preventing Quake 3 to save the configuration
file and it also won't let me do it manually.
Any suggestions on how to fix?

Thanks

Yon need to tell us exactly where that file is stored. I will guess
that it's in \Program Files somewhere, which is a protected location,
but you need to provide more information.

I figured it out. If you do properties on the file it gives you
settings for Groups and usernames under security.

Thanks

I haven't ran Quake, but if it is sitting in the Program Files folder,
then yes. As Windows 7 doesn't allow you or the programs to write in
some areas and that is one of them. The way around this problem (if that
is what it is) is to install the program in another folder (i.e. Games,
etc) which Windows 7 doesn't restrict excess to at least with
administrator privileges.
