Why does photoshop refuse me to save a jpg the 2nd time, like i save a pic, make changes then try to save it again, says I don't have administrative privileges.

That sounds like you have a permissions problem on the directory where you are trying to save. You could create a file, but cannot overwrite or delete a file.

Sounds like a permissions issue. Try creating a new Admin user account and run Photoshop from the new user account to see if the problem goes away:
