The user has set permissions on her folder. Either use a domain admin account to get to it or log in with the users name + password.
it seems that that profile is password-protected
remove the password & try
or it could be NTFS permissions
You should be able to log on as an administrator and take ownership of this profile:

Take ownership. That should help. Or if you need one time access to data use Linux boot CD to browse the folder.
