I am attempting to restore an Outlook 2010 pst file from my file history, but I cannot because it is read only and I do not have permission. I never set it as read only and it is from my old computer that crashed and died.

You may have an permission problem here. Please read this here how on the part "To take ownership of a file or a folder" and please do the same to your pst file or you whole file system.
