What can't I open many folders under "documents and setting"

Why are so many system folders unaccessible to me, under Vista, even though I am administrator?  On XP I would have no problem in accessing them.

A lot of them are junctions (hard links) to the real folders, and for some reason won't open properly.  Maybe they're just intended for internal system access.

A number of these are folders in Profiles that we need access to.

'Documents and Settings' does not exist in Vista.

Do you mean the Users folder?

You need to 'take ownership' of it before you get 'rights' to access the file/folder.

The below website might be of help.

You must do it while in a administrator account.
