I can make a copy of my tree using export. The new copy has a padlock on it and can not be transferred to another site. How can I fix this?

I'm sure we can help with this, but need to get some details:

Which version of FTM?
What "Site" are you transferring to, and/or what format do they require (e.g. GEDCOM)?

Where are you seeing the Padlock? in FTM, in Windows Explorer, or elsewhere?

I am using FTM 2010 in Windows 7.
I exported my FTN Tree in Gedcom 5.5. to my desktop.
The padlock appears in a corner of the desktop icon.That has never happened before.
I want to send it to another genealogy site as I have done several times or EMail it to relatives which I have done many times. I have never seen this lock appear and have no idea how or why it is there.

How do I remove padlock icon from all my files?

There didn't seem to be any problems with the file. I added a new permission group named Authenticated User and gave it full permission. Restarted computer and the lock icon has disappeared and I am able to send the file to whomever I please. Thank you all contributors.
