Exchange Server Permissions


I am running Exchange Server 2003. When i log on from my PC and into Exchange system Manager i do not have the rights to edit Public Folders. I have checked all my permissions and from what i can see i have full rights. I can edit teh Mailbox store though. From ADUC i have gone to the advanced tab and gave myself full rights to the hidden Microsoft Exchange System Object but still i can't edit. What am i missing???

From Exchange system manger on my PC i cannot see the secruity tab for the top level?

Any ideas?
