Windows permissions error

Greetings,
I have migrated from winxp to win vista and then win7.

Everything works but I have problems with permissions for documents. I keep getting error that i cant get access. I have admin status.

Thanks for suggestions.

go to the Local c drive  find folder users look for your user account then check the permissions on that folder.

Check that inherent permissions in not checked in the advance tab

try this :
1. right click on the drive that you want to take ownership of (in my computer) and choose properties
 2. select  the 'security' tab
 3. click the 'advanced' button
 4. select the 'Owner' tab
 5. under 'change owner to:' select your username
 6. check the 'replace owner on subcontainers and objects'
 7. click Apply (may take some time)
 8. Now select on the 'Permissions' tab
 9. click the 'add' button
 10. type 'everyone' for all users to be able to access the drive. Type your user name +. OK
 11. click the 'full control' checkbox under 'allow.' OK it.
 12. check the 'replace permission entries on all child objects...' checkbox
 13. OK it (result may take some time)
 14. OK the last window

I tried everything. Nothing helps.
I tried with linux. I can see files then but even linux report security problems regarding permissions.

As I wrote I tried the suggestions provided and nothing helped. I still dont have access to the documents.
And as I also said I also used linux to access disk drive. In this case I can see files but I cant open them (permission error like in windows environment).

The solution was made with MS expert. It seems its problem with how Vista and Win7 call users. (with or without domain name server). This seems to be know problem on Microsoft migration from WinXP.

You did not give any to my comment.
See http:#a40715381

But you gave two Assists to Thomas Grassi ( trgrassijr55 )
Is that what you wanted to do?
