Windows 7: Yellow Padlock?

Yellow Padlock?

WHY!! Have a got a yellow padlock icon on my user account?

and when I tried to open my previously working iTunes it tells me that the iTunes folder is on a LOCKED DISC?????

Why has this just happened, because I didn't lock it?????

The pad lock on folders means you are the only one who has access. Meaning the folder is private to you.
