Windows 7: Can't access Program Data after repair install

Can't access Program Data after repair install

Successfully ran my 1st repair install to correct updating errors. Went very smooth...but...in Explorer...I can not access Program Data as before.

I get the attached security window...have tried to change permissions...but still no joy.

When in security for Program Data folder...what do I actually modify/change to get permissions to inspect/view Program data folder ?

Thanks....TiminAz
