Documents and settings locked

Hey, I was just doing some cleanup, and I tried opening documents and settings. It has a little lock next to the icon, and wont open. Acsess is denied, even though I am administrator with UAC off. I just want to get in, and delete some stuff.

Documents and Settings?

You must have gone the upgrade route I take it?

Try download SurF File Manager. It will get you into most locked folders.

BTW, it's not your average Windows explorer replacement.

Glad you got it.

You can get into all kinds of hidden sections in Windows with that app.
