Just uncheck the box and hit apply and/or Ok... It should not come back. If it asks you, you can apply the change to all subfolders/files. if it keeps on comming back, a program is changing it. Or, if on CD, you can not remove the readonly attribute.

You can't remove the read-only attribute on some system and custom folders. Most of the time you don't have to worry about it. But if you run into problems saving to a specific folder check the following ms articles.
