boot into safe mode, then log in as administrator and try accessing the files again.
Right click on those folder as administrator, then open the security section and take ownership of those folders and files. Once you are the owner you should be able to assign them to the user account with all the rights necessary.

i went to admin save mode and i changed the acces and i added everyone and my account.  i rebooted and went to my normal account, now i can open the folder but i cant open any subfolder or open any files or even copy them, i still get acces denied error, so we are a step closer lol  :)
what can i do now?

ps: in my previous account b4 formating my c:/     i had this folder as a private folder.

When taking ownership and when changing permissions there is an option which will do the same for the folder below that one. make sure that option is checked.
