Windows 7: I am the Admin and my access is denied

Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit
 
 
I am the Admin and my access is denied

I have been setting up my new PC for a few days, but I am running into all sorts of folders that I do not have access to (I am the dmin, only on other user). I can't get into My Pictures, I can't get into the User Accounts folders to find my Outlook folder, etc. Can I turn that off?

Admin denied

Hello NootDoot,

I to ran into the same problem with Windows 7/64-Bit system I bought two months ago.
I turned off the UAC (security section in Control Panel) then you have to reboot. However, it is for your safety. Please investigate what clearances you have set, i.e., who can access what? I turned mine back on after making sure I had all rights. This too is confusing, took me a while. Use the Help section for Security and get your answers there.

I am sure very experienced members of this forum will be posting advice shortly as well.

Regards

Not sure, but I believe perhaps, that the folders you are actually talking about are "Junction Points" rather than actual folders (they are more like pointers to the actual folders) anyhow read this and see if it helps with what you are actually experiencing Svrops.com - Windows Vista Junction Points
