Angry Edited file, now Windows says it cannot create it?

This is weird and no website I've visited has mentioned or provided an answer to why this is happening. I'm trying to play on a WoW private server (because who wants to pay for that shit), and I'm following the setup instructions on this website:
http://www.toxic-wow.net/guide/#step1
(I'm at the change your realmlist part.)

For changing my realm list I edited the realmlist.wtf file in notepad like it told me to but when I tried to save the file it gave me this error:
http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/4831/asdfmk3.jpg

The website mentions that you may get an error if the file is read only, so I checked that and it isn't read only. So now I'm stuck. Anyone know why it's doing this? Even when it asks me to browse and find the exact file, I do that and it still gives me that error.

Is the file in use?? Try restarting, and then editing the file. Thats not the error it would give if it was in use (in XP anyways), but since you are running Vista it might give a different error. If not, try to delete it, and see if you can.. if you can, restore it from the recycle bin... and try to edit it again. GL

Yeah I still have't figured out how to fix it, but I found a way around it by saving the edited file to another folder and then replacing it with the old one. Oh well.
