Im set as Owner of the folder and i have all permissions set for me however i am still unable to see these files outside of nero and i don't know why.

When i go and try to change the permisions on the folders (the locked ones) windows says the files/folders doesnt exsist...

The folders/files in question are in "C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore" because you do not have permission to write to that folder in Program Files. Move the download location that BitLord uses to some place in your User folder, like: "C:\Users\[username]\Downloads" That is the purpose for why it exists.
