A quick run down on where I'm at now:
I've been getting random BSODs, so I found out how to open .dmp files in the D:\Windows\minidump folder. I installed .Net 4.5 so I could install the Windows development kits, installed the kits, then I opened WinDbg and tried to open the folder. The pop up window informed me access was denied. I moved it to the desktop, tried again, same result.
After seeing access denied I did a search and found out about adding the registry hack that allows you to take ownership of a file. I added the hack, right click -> take ownership. No luck after having done so.
If I could get some help getting it open, it would be much appreciated.
Edit: As posted below, from the directory with WinDbg.exe I ran it as an Administrator and it worked.
