 This doesnt appear to be caused by WordPress, The FTP Server is running
 into Filesystem ACL's which prevent access to certain folders it appears
 to me. Given this is a Windows Environment, PHP can't actually modify
 these ACL's so can't have set them directly in the first place.

 Does your FTP client give you the 'chmod'/file permissions fields? It
 could be that the server is translating a Unix chmod value into a Windows
 ACL incorrectly (or vice versa).

 > The file could also be seen in the ISP control panel File Manager, and
 could not be accessed, renamed or deleted, although file permissions are

 This also seems to indicate a server issue, The File manager should be
 running with higher privledges than WordPress, and as such, should be able
 to modify those files. If the hosts control panel can't access said files,
 I can't expect WordPress would be able to access them either.
