Windows 7 - My Music, My Pictures, My Videos not accessible and I'm the Admin!

I cannot get into my folders where I have videos, pictures and music.  This is insane. I'm the admin of my machine.
How can I fix this?

Did you create a new profile and copy these folders into it?

See if you can go to Documents, Properties and give yourself permission to everything below.

Go to C:\users\

right click your username

Follow these steps in the screenshots to take ownership of that directory and to apply that ownership to all subdirectories. Then go back and add whoever you want to have access to the folder (maybe just you?) and also add SYSTEM. Then go to the last picture and propagate all security settings to child objects (subfolders).

Then scan for virii and malware. We use Microsoft Security Essentials (free) and Malwarebytes (free version available)

In case you can't get the permission set, you might have to take ownership of the folders instead. Sometimes you have to repeat this for subfolders.

look at the icons - there is an arrow on it
if you add the attributes column in windows explorer you will see L in the list (probably with HSDI also)

that means it's a junction point (L for link); this is by design
permissions are set that way for compatibility reasons (and not recommended to mess with it)
