in Explorer, click Properties, then click tab Security, then Modify, then check the checkboxes.

I hope you find the right words, I have it in Italian.

But as I said in the previous question, you'd better move your own stuff the the Application Data directory, that's not causing problems. If you solve them now, in a year from now, on your new pc, who remembers what was done so ong ago???????
