I believe in Vista FSX installs with certain files marked as protected. they can be moved and deleted, but not edited. You can either update permissions on the files, or use Wilco737's solution... either should work...
Of course, your mileage may vary. Just my two cents from my vista setup!
There should be a key on your keyboard. Don't know really what it is on an english keyboard as I am using a German one. But it should be called "print" or so. Hit that together with CTRL and then just go to PS or something like that and hit CTRL + V and then you should see the screenshot.

Quoting QantasA333 (Reply 1): Oh... I forgot to add, I'm using Windows Vista. Will that make any difference?

To use Vista without any problems, you have to have two separate logins. One as administrator and one as a user. Vista pretends that everybody is running on a network even though it may be a standalone PC.
To have the fewest problems, I install FSX logged in as administrator and if I wish to change something in FSX, I do so in administrator login. Changing the file protection will also work.
I keep my addon files in a separate file under my user login so they can easily be modified.
