right click on any of the files and click Properties. Now click on Advance button under General Tab and check the status of Compress contents to save disk space" and "Encrypt contents to secure data". if these options are checked then uncheck them and then try to open the files

So these files were not created on the computer that you have upgraded but on a college computer? If so it appears the college computer was using encryption. The only answer would be to decrypt them on the college computer and then copy the decrypted files to USB.

That is consistent with the file being encrypted

The files not in green you should be able to access by changing the permissions to Everyone > Full Control

You could activate Win 7 hidden Administrator account to overcome these permission issues. Open an elevated command prompt and type net user administrator /active:yes

You will not be able to open any green files until they have been decrypted.

Another way to open ISO files
If you occasionally have to open ISO files, but don't want to download a third party problem (certainly not one called demon or devil or whatever), here's one way to do it: in XP Mode, one of the options is to mount an ISO image rather than the CD-ROM drive at startup.
