Yikes! I can't open my files!

Last Modified: 2015-07-20
I just upgraded my Windows 7 home edition to Windows 7 professional and I restored all my documents and PDF's  to the "my documents" folder.  However, I can't open some of my documents.  I get the message (see graphic).. How do I fix this?

I created this pc.  Am I not the administrator?   What am I missing here?
