Hi,

I'm new to Git and I struggle already at the first configuration:

git config --global user.name "My Name"
gives
error: could not lock config file c://.gitconfig: Permission denied

First thing to notice: the config file is not located directly in C:, but 
in C:\Program Files\Git\etc.
I can edit it manually without any problems, so my user account has a write 
permission.
I would not mind simply editing the file manually, but I got the same error 
message later when I wanted to clone a project using the Git Gui. This 
doesn't happen if I clone using Git Bash.

I'm working on a Windows XP machine. I installed Git on a second machine 
but I didn't get the error.
Any ideas?
