You might enable the built-in Administrator account, log on to it, and see if it may allow you access then.

Hope this helps.

There are folders that look like folders but are not folders, like "Documents and Settings". Any folder that denies to access out right is nothing more then a Junction, comparability shims for old software. YOU DO NOT NEED ACCESS TO THESE! Leave them alone.

Until windows xp, taking ownership of a folder/file also used to modify permissions to grant you full access. But in windows 7 you have a two fold actions to do. First take ownership, close all the dialog boxes, open the security tab again and give yourself the needed permissions.

Check again the NTFS permissions on the needed folders/files.
