Server 2003 Profile and home folder permissions problem

When creating new users in AD and setting profile and home drive paths etc all seems fine, the System creates the folders and they work fine for the users but when I (logged in as domain admin) try to open the folders I get access denied, If I go  properties>security I get the message:

"You do not have permission to view or edit the current permission settings for %username%, but you can take ownership or change auditing settings".

Now I'm sure domain admins are supposed to have full access to all users 'system created' folders so I think It is caused by the share/security permissions of the folder containing the users home folders and profile folders. So can someone advise me what to do to remedy the problem without disturbing the users access for to long.
